Passion and service are at the heart of Blank Canvas Event Design and our greatest joy is to treat each wedding as a “blank canvas”. We strongly feel that your wedding or event should be a true reflection of who you are, not a showcase of our experience or a “copy-paste” of past events. If our years in the performing arts industry have taught us anything, it is that “the show must go on” and we bring that dedication to every event that we do. No matter the crisis that might pop up, we find a practical solution without the “audience” noticing a thing. Whether you need us on the day or months in advance, we bring more than 11 years of experience and great working relationships with a plethora of wonderful suppliers to the table to create the stress-free wedding or event of your dreams.

celeste styled events

Celeste is fuelled by her relentless energy towards creating inspiring spaces which make people happy. She often plays the role of hostess on both personal and business dealings simply because it serves, and is, her way of life. Having grown up in the house of a diplomate has served well in creating this ambassadress culture – a view-of-life where she feels most comfortable. Experience sells, and never has this expression been left as a side note in her approach to mundane, daunting or exciting tasks and events.

Her positive view in life is what many often remember and associate with Celeste. Coupled with a relentless amount of drive, passion and attention-to-detail and you get the core aspects of what Celeste is about. Her personal interests include exploring new places, décor, interior design and feasting her eyes on colourful menu selections as she is a serious foodie. She likes spending time with family whenever the opportunity presents itself and thus cozy Sundays are most probably her favourite day of the week. Oh and she has a serious stiletto addiction.

weddings by andrea

Hi, my close friends call me Andy! I absolutely adore a cup of tea and am deeply in love with life. Positivity is my forte and problem solving my energiser. As a certified designer, I have over 6 years of festival and wedding planning experience. I live to explore my creativity through conceptualising and styling my client’s dream weddings.

As a rule, I only take on a small number of clients every season. This allows me to focus on each couple fully, and with the utmost care and dedication. There is something truly rewarding about being able to relieve a couple of all wedding-related stress. From planning their special day to seeing their happiness shine brightly as their big day unfolds, I always feel honoured to have played a small part in that journey. If you feel I may be your wedding planner, pop me a message and let’s meet for a cup of tea to get to know one another a little better.

We just wanted to say thank you for everything and for helping us make our wedding day just amazing! I could not have planned it without you and your advice and constant communication (nothing too big or small) was invaluable! Having you as our planner really made the wedding planning process much less stressful- we knew everything was taken care of. – Amy Laurie

just jack

Just Jack Weddings and Events is a boutique planning establishment situated in Cape Town, South Africa. Our focus is simple – build a relationship with the client in order to share their vision, taking the concept and transforming it into a tangible reality.

We assist local as well as destination couples to plan their celebrations, not only in South Africa, but also abroad. We have travelled to areas such as Namibia and Zanzibar in order to create beautiful weddings and celebrations. But let’s not forget that we are absolutely spoilt for choice of amazing industry partners and spaces within the beautiful Cape Region.

Each client is different in what they envision for their celebration, and of course what experience they would like to create for their guests. It is thus important to understand the requirements for each individual and adapting to create the most memories. Pushing boundaries in terms of concept ideas and décor creation, all the while maintaining a relaxed yet structured approach, is a strong guiding force. So, let’s sit down with a glass of vino and start planning your dream experience!

A MASSIVE thank you for everything you did, both in the lead up to the day and then on the day itself. It was perfection and Fred and I can’t stop talking about how wonderful everything was, and how fantastic each and every supplier was.

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?

• 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 a you seen a venue that you love?
• Have you already booked any of your suppliers?
