About Elegant Occasions

One fateful day in the 80’s Yelka Jurinovic – Elegant Occasions General Manager and creative guru – was thrown into the deep end and had to organise her first function for her family.

She travelled all over Victoria for days on end to find the perfect decor for her function. At the end of it all she was so exhausted that she fell asleep and, the next day, couldn’t face the prospect of attending her own event.

This was the birth of Elegant Occasions and has led Yelka down a road of study and self discovery to grow Elegant Occasions into one of the premiere event planning and management companies in Melbourne.
