Our Story

Where it began...

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.
