Jennie had a creative vision and always knew that anything was possible, so moving to a new area with 4 kids and starting up an event business from scratch did not seem like an unmanageable task. It began in a double garage at her south coast residence which very quickly filled up with equipment, her determination and ambition lead this business to grow and grow into what it is today.Every single item that was purchased she made sure was of high quality and thought ‘if I was the customer would I be happy with this? ’On the 1st of May 2019 Jen was taken from us far to early and the heavens gained another angel. Her elegance and class still shows and will always reflect on this business as it continues to grow.
Peter has had experience in the event industry for over 30 years. He knew that he never wanted to work the 9 – 5 for someone else so after working for an event hire company in Sydney for many years he moved to the South Coast and created his own. After years of putting in the hard yards being the delivery guy, installation guy, cleaning guy, maintenance guy and the all-round muscle of the business his drive only grew stronger to make this the most successful company he could. Now today, 16 years on after Shoalhaven Party Hire was established, he can confidently take a step back (whilst still having his finger on the pulse) from the physical work and let his team of men continue forward.
Son of Jennifer and Peter, Zac has seen the persistence and energy that his parents have had to create this business and knows what it needs to keep growing. After working on and off for a few years for his parents he decided to go full time in 2013. In 2015 he decided to add to the event industry with his own Cool Room business which is now a branch-company off from Shoalhaven Event & Party Hire called ‘Howe Cool Mobile Cool Rooms’.
Like her brother Zac, she has seen from a very young age what it has taken to build the company that Shoalhaven Event and Party Hire now is. Gabrielle started working for her parents in 2016 doing the office administration which included all things accounts, logistics, communications and coordination – this quickly became of second nature to her. In September 2018 she proudly filled her mother’s footsteps and took over as the Office Manager.
We used Shoalhaven Party Hire for our wedding on April 7, 2018, including marquee hire, arbour, chairs, linen and even crockery and cutlery. They were excellent. Prompt responses to the many (confused bride) changes I made to our invoice, handled all setup and pack down on the day. Very pleased overall with the service.
Could not more highly recommend party hire and their whole team! Right from the minute we enquired they were more then happy to help make our day perfect, the set up team were amazing as well and we could not have done it without them! Rain Hail or Shine they are great for decoration, cover from rain or sunshine and they created a great atmosphere for everyone to party in and around. Thankyou so much for making our wedding more then perfect!
The Team at Shoalhaven Party Hire were an absolute pleasure to deal with! I was organising my wedding from overseas and they were incredibly helpful and put me at ease. They were very accommodating and delivery/pick-up was prompt and well communicated. Thanks again!
