We plan and execute every single detail, from our very first meeting to your guests’ last goodbyes in the early morning hours on your wedding day.

For years and years to come our hearts will still smile at how perfect our wedding day was. What an absolute blessing it was to work with you, Madri and Niki.

Your professionalism, kind heartedness and passion for the work you do really showed from day one till the very last minute of our wedding day. It was such a pleasure to have you on this journey with us, and not mention the amount of “bridal stress” you just lifted off our shoulders.

Thank you cannot express enough the gratitude and gratefulness we have for the work you’ve done for us. Many many many thanks! – Anicia & Nikola

Your wedding is your special day. You get to make a lifelong commitment to the person you love and have chosen above all others. We absolutely believe that planning a wedding should be a fun, drama-free experience for you, from beginning to end. We want to plan your unforgettable unique, dream wedding day with you!

We use non-traditional venues and suppliers to create exciting celebrations that have never been seen or experienced before. We use our unique perspective and knowledge to give you a stunning alternative to the hype, cost and pressures that come with weddings. We love small weddings and especially elopements. We love looking for new, dramatic, beautiful spaces to host your wedding. We love coming up with new ideas and ways to do things. We plan each wedding to suit each couple so that it’s uniquely “you”.

All we want to do is make sure you enjoy yourselves – on the day, all you need to do is arrive, get ready, say I Do and have the time of your lives. We take care of everything else so that you can celebrate your love with no drama. We offer three packages, depending on how many people you would like to join you on this special day. Our elopement package is for 2 to 10 people (this is our favourite!). We also offer a mini wedding package for 11 to 30 people and then a small wedding package for 31 to 80 people. If you are from out of town or have out of town guests, we can plan and manage some interesting pre and post wedding events so that everyone makes the most of the time together and gets to enjoy more of the South African experience.

Our specialised wedding planning packages include start to finish supplier sourcing and management, creative concept planning, logistics and budget management, full event set up, professional on the day hosting and event breakdown services.

I am very grateful for everything you did for me. From the moment we met I just thought you “got me” with the non-wedding-wedding, no-white, no-cliche’s. It was peak silly season, and I changed my mind so many times – you took it in your stride. There was a lot of judgement for us, especially me, about eloping and not inviting anyone but seeing your other couples and everything you said made me feels so much better. The day was everything that we wanted, chilled, about us, no drama-llama’s and we are so happy. You really are the elopement-guru. Thank you for everything. – Tami & Shane

Booking a wedding planner must be at the top of your to-do list! You receive so much value, expertise, advice and guidance, while saving time and money along the way. 

Know when to ask for help. With busy work schedules and tons to get done, it is a good idea to invest in a wedding planner. Depending on your needs and of course your budget, you can make use of a planner that only oversees certain tasks. An on-the-day coordinator will make your wedding day run smoothly or a planner that is there, helping you from start, guiding your choices to make your budget work for you.

Besides your budget, it’s important to keep in mind that you need a planner whose personality suits you as a couple, one that understands your style and with experience that you can rely on.

Wedding planners usually have more than one package option, depending on the size and duration of the wedding celebrations. Here are a few questions to answer to help your planner choose the best package for your wedding:

• What is your wedding budget?
• What is the size of your wedding?  How many guests?
• Will your wedding run over a few days or just one day?
• Do you have an idea of a wedding date?  Are you flexible on this date?
• Have you seen a venue that you love?
• Have you already booked any of your suppliers?
