One of the biggest decisions to make when planning a wedding is obviously where to hold your event.   With no shortage of scenery here in Albany, marquees are a popular choice because of the flexibility they offer. Beach view, vineyard setting, farm location… or maybe all of the above?? 
Meet Jodie and Lee, the new faces behind Albany Party Hire, which offers much than just marquees for wedding planners.   There couldn’t be a couple better suited to this industry than these two.  Lee worked for a party-hire business way back when he was a uni student, and loved it so much that he and Jodie took over Albany Party Hire earlier this year.  Jodie is the very talented foodie behind the “Champion Chef” dinner party game and Champion Chef catering.  She also has a great sense of style so, brides, you’re in safe hands!
They both can party.  I know – I’ve seen them!   I recently had a chat to them in amongst the chaos of “show week”.

What drew you both to this business? 
We like parties
