We live in New York City so planning a wedding abroad was not an option. Having Niki and Madri at the wedding was the biggest relief ever. They were beyond helpful, accommodating, knowledgeable and professional. So quick to help with all of our crazy requests and last minute changes. They also planned a wine tour day with our massive crew which was flawless and so much fun. 

They took care of everything!!!! The family didn’t have to worry about a thing which was one of our biggest concerns having the wedding and reception at their home. They made things we were told “could not be done in Cape Town” happen and executed perfectly. I cannot recommend The Event Planners enough! – Candice & Gary

 

Basically, I love weddings! I think coming from a wedding planner, that is a given. My wedding was actually supposed to happen on April 25th 2020, but we had to postpone it due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Andy & I decided that we didn’t want 2020 to be made up of only sad things, so we decided to get married in a private ceremony, just the 2 of us. We were married on September 19th 2020 under a beautiful oak tree in Franschhoek. Our big celebration was on April 17th 2021, I feel so lucky I got to marry the love of my life twice, AND I got to wear another wedding dress. (hence my photos above of my two beautiful dresses) I mean, pretty sure that is something dreams are made of?!

I always wanted my wedding day to be perfect, just as much as you do. I have loved weddings all my life, they are just so romantic and as clichéd as it may sound, it is the first day of the rest of your life, and what a day it will be! I am a 36 year old born and bred Capetonian. I started out in the wedding industry as a Professional Wedding Photographer in 2008. With each wedding that I photographed, I realised how much I loved being a part of my bride and groom’s special day, (I also realised how many brides were in way over their heads and completely stressed out) and slowly but surely,

I made my move into becoming a Professional Wedding Planner here in Cape Town. I have been the proud owner of The Mosaic Wedding Company since 2011 and have planned many weddings since opening. If you decide to choose me to plan your wedding, please be assured that the utmost love and affection will go into every thought and moment spent planning YOUR Legendary Day. Click here to see more.

I can’t actually believe it’s already over 2 weeks since you made our dream wedding come true. We have both been on a massive come down and missing all the wedding prep fun. We both want to say such a massive thank you. We knew straight away that you were the person for the job, on that first Skype and man did you deliver. Not only did you set us up with the most amazing team of professionals who did the most amazing job of bringing together the vision we had for our wedding, but you translated all our crazy ideas and made them come to life. I felt so confident leaving our wedding in your hands on the day and didn’t worry once, even when changes had to be made due to the weather. Everything was so beautiful on the day and everyone said it was the best wedding they had ever been to. For such a small wedding that makes me so happy, I was worried we wouldn’t have enough atmosphere, but in the end it was brilliant, the flowers and decor and lighting really set the atmosphere up. You and Rowenna did a fabulous job. You must hear this a lot, but it was like working with a friend by the end. We always felt like we were your only couple, no matter how busy you were with all your other weddings. You always replied promptly, even when you’d had a wedding on or should have been off on a weekend. You are most definitely the best in the business and were our wedding fairy! When we renew our vows in 10 years we will be in touch for your services again and will definitely be recommending you to anyone we know who gets married in the gorgeous Cape! We really can’t thank you enough for making our day magical. – Ally & Grant

Thank you for knowing exactly what I wanted before I even knew. Your creativity, professionalism and genuine love for our wedding day was unforgettable. – William & Leanne

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?
