About - Mkono Events


After living in the UK for almost 12 years, Candace decided to pack up her family and return home to South Africa

Candace has been in this industry for over a decade and she has a passion for delivering memorable events for Mkono’s clients. She founded this company to provide the wedding and corporate event industry in Cape Town with exceptional event experiences.

Considering our name (Mkono) means “hand” in Swahili, our company ethos is to collaborate with other local suppliers and artisans, remaining truly local. We also want to give all our clients a guiding hand through the event planning process. 

We believe that the events industry in Cape Town is one of the best the world has to offer. 

The Mkono team only work with the best local suppliers, making your event truly South African. From Cape Town photographers, stylists, entertainment companies, production, travel specialists and venues, local truly is lekker.



We want you to FEEL your event on a personal level. It is all about your experience.


We strive to always provide an excellent service to our clients.


We work with diverse event partners. We keep it local and we keep it inclusive.
