Back in 2000, future bride and groom Matt and Katrina Butterworth sat down to plan their wedding. What should have been an easy process became a nightmare with nothing online to help make the planning process any easier.
It was there in their lounge room that Easy Weddings was born! And bit by bit, night by night, Matt and Kat worked on the site to build the platform that would become Australia's largest and most popular wedding website today.
As it happened...
The Easy Weddings business plan is developed and the first version of EasyWeddings.com.au goes online
The Articles, Music and Directory sections are introduced to the site
The very first Victorian advertisers come online
Website design service begins
Matt and Kat go on their honeymoon travelling Australia, photographing garden locations and gaining new advertisers
Easy Weddings is featured nationally on TV on Channel Nine's A Current Affair
New interactive planning tools for couples are introduced
Matt and Kat both start working full time on Easy Weddings
