Destination Wedding Planning

Elevating simplicity for the well travelled foodie


I specialise in helping UK based couples with classically elegant yet unique weddings in Cape Town, South Africa. Using the knowledge I gained working as a chef and having grown up in South Africa and worked in the hospitality industry for 6 years, there isn't much I don't know about planning your wedding in the fantastic landscape of Cape Town, South Africa and what I don't know, I will do my utmost to find out. 

If you are planning your wedding in Cape Town, wanting a stunning outdoor South African wedding with exquisite well-chosen wine, delectable local cuisine, and a fantastic guest experience, then you and I are on the same page. I aim to help you plan your wedding, using my knowledge of the wedding industry in Cape Town (and surrounding areas) and the suppliers that are ideal for you and your wedding, to plan a day that you will never forget.

After a complimentary consultation (where we will discuss exactly what your expectations are, what you need from a wedding planner as well as your wedding vision)  I will prepare a proposal with the outlines of your investment, however you can expect a minimum fee of £4000 or 15% of your overall budget, depending on your bespoke needs.

Next Steps
To provide each couple with the best support, I take on a select number of clients for full wedding planning each year. If you are ready to start planning and wish to have a relaxed planning journey please do get in touch to arrange the initial complimentary consultation and we can meet over a cup of coffee to chat about your plans and how I can best help you.
