William and Leanne

This beautiful wedding couple exhibit everything that is right with the world! They are incredibly caring, loving and they have a lust for life that is contagious.

When I first met this wedding client, I knew that we would work well together. Leanne wanted a pink and blue wedding with coastal elements and no floral elements on the table. Initially, I wondered if we could pull off a coastal theme wedding without it looking much like any other coastal wedding that has been done before but I was determined to think out of the box and provide them with an elegant day full of beautiful accents and intricate details.

We began with a wedding event design document which changed a lot from the first draft but it gave us our foundation. Part of the wedding event design process is to create a mood board which will help you define the elements you wish to have on the day as well as the colour palette.

Leanne is just such a beautiful person and our working relationship came with ease. It is so special when you create a friendship by working with each other and that is exactly what happened here. The wedding day was filled with love, laughter and great food! While no wedding day runs 100% according to plan, it is up to your “on the day” wedding coordinator to make sure the day runs smoothly despite any hiccups. What a beautiful day it was!

The table elements were gorgeous! With soft pinks and blue hues everywhere. Delicate shells were placed in vases and soft candle light lit up the tent in the evening along with the pink parcans that created a wonderful warm glow as the light faded. The professional images are still being edited but these are ones taken by Robijn from Ruby Bee Weddings who helped me set up on the day and she did the limited flowers required for the day including the flower crowns for the bridesmaids! Yes guys!! Another Cape Town wedding planner helped me set up on the day because working with each other instead of against each other means I can now say, I have a tribe of beautiful people in this industry I can call on. Thank you Robijn for your friendship and your generosity!

What a beautiful day it was! Thank you to all the amazing suppliers who made the day incredibly special for William and Leanne. Also, thank you to Jess at The Lagoon Beach Hotel who was a massive help with the on the day coordination and just generally a super duper person! Lastly, Thank you William and Leanne for trusting me to deliver your incredibly special day! It was an honour and a pleasure. Here is to many happy years for the 2 of you!

Much love
