Just a very quick note to thank you for all you did to make Fiona and Graeme's day such a special wedding day. Despite the fact that they were unable to get married on Table Mountain, the day was so happy and everyone agreed that things worked out perfectly in the end. The actual wedding venue at the Bay Hotel was stunning and having the photos at Signal Hill will give them memorable photos to look back on. So, thanks to your efficient organisation, a wonderful day was had by all.

Jasmine & Joseph (USA) - Table Mountain
Joey and I couldn't have chosen a better team to capture such a poignant moment in our lives. The whole day was perfect and we will forever hold near and dear to our hearts the memories you helped create. Thank you Kristy for making this day worry-free with your outstanding aptitude for detail - although, I would expect nothing less from the South African version of me! Patrick, thank you for your kind words and soothing demeanor. It's amazing how you managed to capture the very essence of two complete strangers so quickly - you have a gift. Lastly, Jilda, we are so grateful to have had you as our photographer. Your photos captured our energy and spirits and we are so very fortunate to have had such a talented individual document the love we share for one another.
Perhaps in the future you will do Joey and I the honor of renewing our vows. Thank you all so much!!!
With our deepest gratitude,
Jasmine and Joseph
Dane & Brigette (SA) - Tintswalo Atlantic
Dane and I just want to say a really really big thank you to you for EVERYTHING you did for us for our wedding day…it really was SO perfect and SO special! The day felt like a dream, and was everything we both wished it would be.
Please will you pass on our thanks to Melissa too…we know that between the two of you, behind the scene, a lot of preparation went into making out day so incredible…with the last minute change of venue, and the addition of warm drinks to the menu, the logistics of the flowers and cake and decor and furniture, and the setting up of the venue with all the small beautiful details…THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!!!
Please will you also pass on our thanks to Patrick, he really was great (like you said)! The whole service felt to relaxed and personalized and special…it really was perfect!
Please will you also pass on our thanks to Joe, he was really fantastic (also like you said)! Neither Dane nor I are mad about having our photo's taken, but he really made it fun and we were really relaxed and just enjoyed every moment he captured…and can't wait to see them...
Once again THANK YOU!
Dane and Brigette
Julie & Luke (UK) - Llandudno Beach
Sam , was amazing very professional and supportive a real credit to your business she was kind and
sensitive. The flowers were perfect. Patrick was amazing , he asked so many questions we never even
thought of ! He was so sensitive and intuitive and all with humour , he was the perfect person for us
especially when the weather came !
Jilda was awesome, the wind was just shocking and at one stage we three screamed and ran behind the
boulders !! It was v funny ,she also confirmed the kilt wearers were wearing underwear!! She was great
and clearly loves her job and is very talented , she was thrilled when she got a difficult shot she wanted
relying on the wind. Shoneeze and Natalie were amazing , talented and the salon is gorgeous , Sam said
you both get your hair done there , great choice ! I am just thinking if flying in every 6 weeks to get my hair
done is too extravagant lol !
Emma & Neale (UK) - Le Petit Ferme, Franschhoek
Kirsty & Jilda,
These photos are amazing, we are so pleased and can't stop looking at them!
We couldn't be happier with every aspect of the wedding day, everything you've done!
Thank you so much for making our day extra special.
Wishing you both a lovely weekend with your families.
Emma & Neale.
Liz (UK) - Bakoven Rocks

Dear Kirsty, thank you so much for all you have done to arrange our very special day. You have been
amazing at managing the madness & we are thrilled to have you as a part5 of our very special Cape Town
memories. All our love Mile & Shelley
Sarah & Chris (Dubai & UK) - Molenvliet
We are back - & totally depressed too!!! We had such a wonderful time in South Africa & Mauritius that it is a real
reality-check to be back in the Office today .
Thank you again for all your help – our wedding was brilliant & we & all our guests had a brilliant time!
Hi Kirsty ,
My wife and I would like to express our sincere thanks to you and your team for providing us with a splendid
wedding for Sarah and Chris together with the high levels of professional service shown by all the team that was put
together by your company , Weddings Out Of Africa.
We couldn't have asked for anything more memorable , and even the weather on the 26th came to the party by
giving us a beautiful afternoon for the wedding itself and the evening's special function .
The venue for the reception was perfect , with fantastic views of the planted vines from the veranda , the gracious
reception area and the splendid interior of the wine cellar . The Australians were mightily impressed !
You should know that we are sure that the newly weds will never forget the day that they got married in the very
old Stellenbosch Catholic Church , by Sarah's cousin Robert , and held their spectacular wedding reception at the
very impressive MolenVliet Wine & Guest Farm under the very attentive eyes of Sven and Niccki . A job well done .
May I ask a favour of you and that is to convey the sentiments expressed herein to "your team of service providers
"as well as to the two that I believe Sarah dealt directly with , namely the photographer Joe Dryer and the hair and
make up lady Sanmarie Botha . It would be unfair to praise one over another as the " team effort " and combined
result is what counts , a great performance ! If we have forgotten anybody please accept our apologies .
Once again many thanks,
Kind regards ,
Eddie and Merle Frey
Nelly & Chuck (UK & USA) - Clifton Beach
Just wanted to send you an email to thank you again for everything you did to ensure our wedding went smoothly.
Everyone is still talking about October 30th! we are so thankful and blessed things turned out as well as they did.
The beach set up, the flowers, the champagne, the photographs which were so so nice and the reception we
received at Africa Cafe was really unreal - we were like are they really whistling and screaming for us?
Really, you did a professional job coordinating everything and we thank you again and again.
I'll be telling all my lady friends to get married in Cape Town!
Happy festive season and best wishes for 2013. Nelly and Chuck Speed
Emma & Richard (South Africa) - Molenvliet
To our darling Kirst,
Thank you for making our dreams come true today. Your kindness, sense of calm, enthusiasm, reassurance and
passion has astounded us. We are so grateful to you and thank you for this incredible celebration that we and our
families will treasure forever.
All our love
Em & Rich
Kathryn & David (UK) - Signal HIll
Thank you for your email, sorry for not emailing you earlier, but we've been busy sightseeing. I
actually did toe to top of South Africa, Cape of Good Hope to the Botswana border within 2 weeks!
Thank you very much for all the efforts of yourself, Sam, Jilda, Sanja and Patrick to make it a great
and indeed memorable day. As you can see by the photos we decided to laugh at the tricks the weather was playing
with us, rather than get upset. We enjoyed our day, had a great time and the evening at Baia was great, they also
come highly recommended. With Thanks and Kind Regards, Kathryn & David
I would like to add that we had a fantastic day, and we agreed that weather actually made it even more memborable
- difficult to forget Patrick and his comments on "The Elements" in the circumstances. As Kath has said, please
extend our warmest appreciations for all their endeavours, Patrick, Jilda and Sam were t'riffic, and it was a real
shame we were not able to meet up with you. But we appreciate your help with everything equally.
With all out thanks and best wishes,
Asia & Michael (USA) - Cape Beach
Hi Kirsty!! We got home yesterday around 4pm.... over 30 hours of travel. Glad to be home!! We had a wonderful
time and absolutely LOVE South Africa :) Thanks for the teasers!! Thanks so much for everything!!
Pics are absolutely beautiful!! Sincerely, Asia
Asia and I had so much fun getting married in Cape Town! What a wonderful world class city! Kirsty Marmarellis and
her company Weddings Out of Africa took care of all of the details and we were just able to show up and enjoy the
wedding. Her advice on the location was perfect, we got married right on the ocean behind a neighborhood where
Kirsty had obtained permission for us. Patrick, the spiritual advisor she selected created a moving ceremony and Jilda
the photographer had a great attitude and we could tell she had fun being there too.
The scenery is otherworldly and we are so happy we got married in South Africa.
Michael & Asia Cordell
Homewood, Alabama, USA
Mikaela & Andrew (UK) - Molenvliet – Cape Winelands
I wanted to thank you for all your help and support that you provided both Andrew and myself but mostly myself in
the lead up and on the day of our wedding! As I mentioned to you on the phone the week after our wedding, the
attention to detail and you simply dealing with everything that was thrown your way very calmly in the background
was fantastic. We all know that a few curve balls where part of the day, but at no point did I feel any of the stresses
that you personally must have felt that day! I can only imagine what was going through your head when DJ Didier
called you up. In hindsight I wish we had carried on without him as this way we would have enjoyed the marimba
dancers more and had more time for the photographs. However I understand your decision and thanks for all the
running around getting sound systems/pa set up at the ceremony. I do appreciate it.
Whilst you dealt with all the various elements incredibly well you also managed to add a fantastic romantic touch to
all our little requests. The hanging of the hearts in the tree in the garden along with the words and the messages
was a beautiful touch. Decorating our honeymoon room with all of our special creations and elements from the
wedding was really amazing! (Don’t ever loose those personal touches that you add) They are unique and simply
lovely! Thank you! As much as the day ran away with us, when we got to our room that evening it was lovely to see
all the little reminders and memories from the day already there for us to enjoy! Thank you!
Having you there on our day was so calming and an incredible comfort to me. I remember very clearly you walking
up to the manor house first thing that morning, with the biggest smile on your face and a sense of complete control
of what had to be achieved that day. I believe that you being on the ball and in “event mode” allowed me to be
relaxed and truly enjoy the build up of our day. That was the biggest concern of mine, was how I would let go of
event organising when that is what I do every day of my life.
Of all the people in the world who know me best, both my mom and Andrew thought you were an angel in disguise
and completely appreciate all that you did for us. I feel that we have made a friend in you and I do honestly hope to
be able to recommend you to any of my friends or colleagues and hope to send future business your way.
Once again Thank you for being part of our special day and for adding in all the personal touches that you did.
With Kind Regards
Head of Boxes, Hospitality Wembley Stadium
Jonathan & Tracey (UK) - Twelve Apostles
We never got a chance to thank for so much for your hard work organising our wedding in March. We had an amazing day and still can’t believe how great a day it was!
Jonathan and Tracey
Jennifer & Emmanuel (USA) - Horn Bay Beach
Emmanuel & I just wanted to give you our heart-felt thanks for helping with our wedding. It was absolutely
beautiful and more magnificent than anything we had imagined. You, Patrick and Simone truly helped to
make our day special most memorable. We feel every detail was perfect for us, and Patrick couldn't have
made our vows and ceremony any more right for the two of us. He truly touched on the essence of the
love and friendship Emmanuel and I have found in each other. The entire afternoon was wonderful and
perfect, and we are most excited to see our pictures!! Please pass on our thanks and appreciation to
Simone and Patrick. Again, thank you so much for helping make our day so magical!
Sincerely, Jennifer & Emmanuel Adoh
Louise & Paul (UK) - Oudekraal Beach
We hope you are well.
Firstly thank you so much for making our special day very special and memorable, we would not of changed a single
thing, you made the whole thing very simple and hassle free for us which is exactly what we wanted, so for that we
cannot thank you enough.
The first few days back at work last week were tough tho :-( and this week we have to work a whole 5 days OHHHH
The photo's you forwarded us are fab, we are really pleased with the way they came out, do you need us to do
anything with them i.e. pick some out etc, what is the way forward now?
Thank you once again for everything.
Well you are very good at your job and worth every penny :-)))))
Mr & Mrs G :-) xxxx
Amanda & Ryan (USA) - Llandudno Beach
OMG love, love, love!!! I am so pleased with them not only because Greg does such an amazing job but because of
everything you did behind the scenes to make sure they looked this way!
I can't thank you enough for making our trip to Cape Town and our wedding in South Africa the most amazing
experience ever. Our wedding was absolutely everything we wanted it to be, we wouldn't have changed a thing! I
hate to use the term vendors because after meeting everyone they were more like friends but you really have the
best "vendors" from photography, videography, makeup, and of course our minister Patrick that I feel
so fortunate that we had you as our wedding planner. You made this process so stress free and were so great at
communicating and finding exactly what I was looking for.
Ryan and I both said we don't think we will have as nice as a vacation for the rest of our lives, but will keep trying of
course :) Thank you for all of the lovely hotel and restaurant recommendations. The Primi Royal was the perfect fit
for us! I would definitely recommend it to other young couples because it wasn't expensive and we love that we
could walk to so many restaurants and bars, not to mention the beach. We were so pleased with our stay and
absolutely fell in love with Cape Town. After all my traveling its definitely the most beautiful place I've ever been.
After emailing with you over the past 8 months it was such a joy to finally meet you, I just wished we lived closer
:) Your girls are absolutely beautiful and Ryan and I both really enjoyed meeting them. I can't wait to see the photos
from trash the dress. Thanks for sending the pictures and thanks for everything!!
Garrick & Kate (SA) - Franschhoek, Cape Winelands
First of all thank you for all the arrangements for our wedding ceremony, Christine and I thoroughly enjoyed it even
down to being cheered into the Grand Provence, it was really what we both wanted, a quiet simple wedding.
Many thanks, Captain Philip and Mrs Christine Chambers.
P.S. Wish we were back in SA as its freezing and wet at home.

putting together the perfect wedding. (And my flowers were gorgeous …)
Warm regards, Mariette
Hope & Tebogo (SA) - Beach & One & Only Hotel

Hope and Tebogo
Leanne & Andrew (Zimbabwe & SA) - Stellenbosch
Hi Kirsty, how are you? I just wanted to say thank you so, so much again for everything that you did
to make our wedding day run so smoothly. It sounds silly, but the day was absolutely perfect & that
really was due to you. We had no stress or worries & I can't tell you how much Andrew & I appreciated
that. Thanks again xx Leanne
Caroline & John (UK) - Beach
Hope you are well.
I just wanted to drop you a note now that John and I are back in the UK to say a huge thank you for
organising our wedding and making the day so special and run smoothly. Although I was a bit
disappointed not to make it up table mountain the Oudekraal beach turned out to be the better option.
My friends and family all said that it was much more intimate and private and they thoroughly enjoyed
I would be more than happy to give references about your service as I was so impressed that you had
organised everything for me with nothing to do which is what you need when you are 6000miles away.
The cake was gorgeous and John and I love all the photographs Simone is an amazing photographer.
My friends also could not believe that we had only met Andred on the Sunday as they said the way he
talked about us it was as if he knew us.
Thanks again everything was perfect on the day. You made our start to a married life together
Abdi & Naina (Jordan) Beach & One&Only Cape Town
Great hearing from you, and hope you're well. Yes we both arrived safely, after a short but wonderful and
memorable honeymoon! Thanks so much for all you did in helping to put it together. It gave us a chance to see other
parts of SA, and to see how truly beautiful your country is. We're definitely looking forward to our next trip back:)
Thanks also for passing on the cake to the township, they must have really enjoyed it.
I remember you taking some shots at the ceremony venue, could you please send these to us by email? We really
appreciate all your hardwork that went towards making our day a really special one, the ceremony was perfect. All
the best for now and warm regards,
Hope you are well and my mail finds you well. I don't quite thank I have the words to express the gratitude I have
for helping put together the most memorable time of our lives so far. From the moment we started putting the
pieces together the suggestions you put on the table made it extremely easy to make a decision.
The attention to detail and the ceremony was best expressed by the amazed faces as we all walked in, the tears of
joy during the ceremony and the joyful sorrow as we all walked out to leave such a beautiful location. Naina and I
just wanted to be left there alone for a while and take it all in. Thank you for choosing Patrick as our marriage officer,
he made such a difference on this day with his carefully chosen wise words of wisdom. Please pass our regards to
him and the rest of your team.
The honeymoon went very well, everything was literally to clock-work perfection and I don't think we could have
asked for more. It was just enough time to make us want to go back as soon as possible to remember it all again. I
definitely need to go back, I feel that I was in a state of shock at the time and now that it has all sunk in, I need to
enjoy it all once again in a relaxed manner.
I truly want to thank you for everything Kirsty, you will be in our lives forever and we will definitely be regular
visitors to Cape Town and hope we will see you each time. We missed your birthday, we found out a little late from
Alex and wish you a happy belated birthday.
Tracey & Makura (USA & Senegal) - Constantia Winelands
Makura and I wanted to write you personally to express our gratitude for your making our wedding day one which
we, our families and friends will remember for a life time.
Selecting a wedding coordinator from miles away and via internet can be an unsettling and daunting task - to say the
least. From the very beginning of our destination wedding process, you managed to put us both at ease with your
professionalism, your attention to detail, and your promptness – and this was without us having met! I was most
grateful for your honoring the intimate and loving atmosphere we wanted to create as a result of your suggesting
venues, an officiant, and vendors who were capable of providing services to our specifications. When I flew to Cape
Town to meet you, to visit our venue of choice, and to speak with vendors, I knew that Makura and I had found the
person who would assist us in capturing the essence of our relationship, our love, and the type of people we are.
On a personal note, I still remember your kind words on my wedding day when I was bundle of nerves. Those were
the words, not only of a wedding coordinator, but of a generous human being who understands that love and
marriage are still indeed sacred.
You should know that we are still reliving our wedding day, and I trust that we’ll continue to do so for a very long
time. Our families and friends are still singing praises as a result of the beautiful affair we had. Makura and I believe
that our amazing and memorable wedding day is indicative of the wonderful life we are committed to share
together. You are absolutely wonderful, and we are so thankful to you for helping us to start our life together on
such a high note.
Please know that we are open to talk to couples who are exploring the option of using Weddings Out of Africa.
Wishing you all the best, Tracey & Makura
Rene & Rob (Switzerland) - Franschhoek
Rob and I are arrived back in Switzerland yesterday and I wanted to take the first opportunity I got to email you and

Sally & Steve - Tintswalo
Dear Kirsty, on behalf of myself and Steve I wanted to thank you for our wonderful
wedding at Tintswalo Atlantic on 22nd March. The staff at the hotel went out of their way
to make our stay very special for us and to look after us and our guests. We were
delighted with the setting and the whole experience which has left a lasting happy
memory. Please pass on our appreciation to the Tintswalo team – we hope to return one
day! Many thanks again for all your organisation and the help and support that made,
what could have been a stressful experience, one that went smoothly and met all our
expectations. It was a lovely relaxed service and a very happy for both of us. With best
wishes, Sally Crundwell
Andrew & Sulette - Matjiesfontein~ Royal Hotel

Sylvia & Steve - Rhodes Memorial / Table Mountain
Kirsty, Just dropping you a short note to say Thank you very much for organising our
special day. It was a lovely ceremony and we all enjoyed it very much (we better than
the girls I think). Steve went back to Angola yesterday, I'm back to work and the girl's
school, so all back to normal. The weather is pretty bad here, rain, dull and windy, at
least the sun was out in Cape Town, and in Franschhoek and Knysna it was very warm.
We did go out Table Top on the Thursday, and luckily it was clear so that it was a good
trip. Looking forward to seeing the photos, glad you convinced me to have them taken,
can you drop me a note when they will be sent.
Thanks once again. Sx
Gareth & Tina - Windmill Beach
Thank you so much for all your efforts in making our wedding such a memorable
experience. From start to finish you have accommodated our every wish and the whole
holiday has gone without a hitch. We thoroughly enjoyed the beaches and wildlife at
Plett, especially Caitlin, and have been welcomed and accommodated greatly at
Shamwari. If there is anything we can do for your business regarding references, please
let me know. With best wishes, Gareth, Tina and Caitlin.
Adam & Inga - Ulusaba Game Reserve
Thank you for planning our dream day wedding day in Africa! Best regards Adam & Inga
Ian & Liz - Blouberg Beach
First day back at work after our amazing visit to SA. I wish I could say I'm glad to be
back.... but I'd be lying!! I just wanted to drop you an email to pass on my most sincere
thanks to you from Liz and myself. Liz and I had the most beautiful wedding and it was
all thanks to you!. We had our renewal on Saturday and so we had our SA photo's
displayed on a presentation on the projector. All of our guests, and I mean everybody!!
said how amazing they were, how beautiful the wedding looked and how great our
planner must have been!! I put some other shots of our adventures across SA on there
as well. So many people commented on the beauty of SA and that they would be making
plans to visit! Thank you so much Kirsty. Take care of yourself. Best wishes, Ian & Liz

Julie & Andrew - Twelve Apostles
Hi Kirsty, this is the first opportunity I have had to email you since the wedding. Thanks so much for everything you did to make the day go smoothly... it was everything we could of wished for and more.
Hester & Steve - Twelve Apostles
I just wanted to say a big thanks for your help and efforts to make our day so special. We had a truly
amazing time and we will remember it with fond memories forever. Thanks so much for everything, it was
the best 2 weeks of our lives & an incredible day ~ everything was perfect and that was down to all your
hard work so thank you thank you !!! H&S
Amy & Cliff - The Long Beach
Hi Kirsty, firstly many thanks for everything you did for us for our wedding plans and the subsequent
honeymoon arrangements. The whole experience exceeded our expectations and we thank you very much
for making it special. We had a fantastic time throughout or trip and have fallen in love with South Africa !
We are beginning to sound like the South African tourist board here in the UK letting everybody know what
a fabulous time we had and the fabulous people we met. Once again, we cannot thank you enough for
what was a special and memorable time in South Africa and Mozambique. Best regards, Cliff & Amy
Nicole & Alex - Molenvliet
Dearest Kirsty, this note is to say a huge THANK YOU for what was easily the best day of our lives! It was
43 degrees (and I think that was in the shade!), but you completely kept your cool and ensured that
everything went off so smoothly (your smiling face holding our bouquets at the top of the drive was the
perfect start!). The beautiful wine farm that you suggested for our wedding, Molenvliet, was even more
stunning on the day than I could have imagined and every little detail that we’d thought of and discussed
came together so perfectly on the day. I can honestly say I would not have changed a thing! I’d also like to
thank you for all the excellent suggestions you made re catering, florists, music etc. Garth at Lush and
Angela at Food Fanatics were absolutely amazing, with one of our guests commenting that our wedding
meal was one of the best of his trip (high praise considering Franschhoek restaurant standards)! Neither of
them could have been more helpful and the make-up artist, DJ, acapella singers, string quartet and cake
which you recommended were all perfect. But this list wouldn’t be complete without very special thanks
for introducing us to your wonderful friend, our minister Andred. We loved meeting him when we were
there in August and he really made the ceremony so special for us. The list of things that Alex and I have
been looking back at and commenting on so happily for the past 3 weeks could go and on, so thank you for
everything and for the really wonderful memories! Lots of love, Nicole & Alex Kovach x
Megan & Clem - Yacht, Cape Town
To our fantastic wedding planner,
The day could not have run more smoothly. Kirsty you where great, always willing to assist, answering our
calls when we thought we had an issue, even at the weekends. We could not of planned such a exciting,
beautiful, momentous occasion. It’s always there in our minds a great wedding, planned so well without
any issues. Now I have the most amazing wife who looked absolutely fantastic on the day, a truly fantastic
wedding day due to your organisation and recommendations with regards to the wedding dress, make up,
wedding cake, venue, Tigger Too and taking all the hassle out of our hands. Also looking after the financial
side including negotiating cost which we thank you for. I often look at the photos we have, looking at my
wife, but also seeing our wedding planner there interacting with our guests. I have had several comments
about the wedding, all the guy's at work thought it was a excellent day, Getting married on the yacht, food
on the yacht, the timings, the helicopter photography the meal at Baia, it’s all positive thanks to you. It
was also a pleasure having you join us at the evening meal along with your husband. It’s like we have
known you forever and hope you may stay in touch with Megan and I. Once again thank you, it would not
of been possible without you Kirsty - you helped make our day so special!
James & Sonja - Buitenverwachting, Cape Town
Just managed to log on and see photos which look fantastic!! I can't wait to see the rest indeed.
It was an absolutely perfect day which was completely a result of all your planning activities all of which
went like clockwork. Everyone commented on how perfect a day it was and what a wonderful day you
made it for both of us. We cannot thank you enough for all your efforts.
We don't leave until Saturday but will contact you before we leave to elaborate further on our thanks.
Once again a huge thanks for a perfect wedding. You are the best! If any couples are needing a reference
please feel free to pass on our contact details. With very best wishes, James & Sonja
Adam & Tam - Llandudno, Cape Town
I don’t think we properly thanked you for the outstanding work on our behalf. How you pulled such a
memorable day together with only 3 days notice was truly astounding! The enormity of it has blown all
our friends back home away, who can see that we made the absolutely right decision despite their
absence. We wanted something special and a bit different, you simply couldn't have delivered any better.
I would just like to say that Andred was fantastic; his sermon absolutely on the mark, being both fitting and
humorous. The food was absolutely delicious too and its service.
Greg and Tiff were magnificent. Nobody can believe Tiff's photos and Greg's sample photos.
We are both so pleased that we met you, well done and many thanks, Adam.xx
Ps . You are a spreader of happiness Kirsty !!!
Anna & Ashley - Twelve Apostles, Cape Town

Lots of love Anna & Ashley Skein
Stuart & Laura - Twelve Apostles Cape Town
I just wanted to say how nice it was to finally meet you and to thank you for everything. Laura and
Stu’s wedding was absolutely amazing and between us we did an astounding job if I do say so myself!
Please thank everyone on your team it was simply perfect. The remainder of our time in South Africa
was wonderful and everyone enjoyed themselves especially the happy couple.
Once again thank you and it has been a pleasure working with you. Love Jackie x
Tracy & Alan - Sahara Park Cricket Grounds, Cape Town
How are you? Hope you are well.
Sorry we haven’t been in touch sooner but things have been hectic here – but we’d just like to say a big
thank you to you and that we had a marvellous time in Cape Town and we’ll never forget our wedding day.
It was a very surreal day with everybody in the ground and the atmosphere (shame the result couldn’t
have been a bit better for England), especially when Dale Steyn is giving you the thumbs up and Fannie De
Villiers is stealing a kiss from the wife! Once again many thanks for all you hard work.
Alan & Tracy
Danny & Heather - La Residence, Cape Town
Kirsty made our wedding from start to finish and we couldn't have even dreamed of such an amazing day without her hard work and knowledge! Thank you so much! During all the tough times what with having a new baby who took up all our time, Kirsty was the one to direct us along the right path for our special day by giving us all her inside knowledge and contacts and supervising the whole affair while we sat back and went with the ride! La Residence was a truly spectacular venue and the staff and vibe there was out of this world, so professional and so splendid. Nothing can ever compete with those 3 perfect days spent staying there with all the family and we hold these memories close to our hearts forever.
Thank you Kirsty, Heather and Danny xx
Rob & Lynette - Vrede en Lust Franschhoek
We were delighted that Kirsty was our wedding planner, she is the definition of professional. She helped
us with every aspect of the event, nothing was too small for her. She stood-fast and fought battles for us
when 3rd parties put a spoke in the wheels as they will do, and her attention to detail ensured that
everything was prepared when the big day dawned. On the day itself she put in a star performance,
discreetly dealing with issues that arose without us even being aware of them, allowing us to relax and
enjoy the special day we had dreamed of. As if that wasn’t enough, she is a lovely friendly person too. We
can’t recommend her enough. Thank you Kirsty for all that you did, you really were integral to the amazing
day that was had. All our love, Rob and Lynnette
Russ & Laura - Table Mountain, Cape Town
Well we have arrived back in a rather snowy, cold Scotland!! Just wanted to thank yourself, Bev, Alison and
all others involved from hair to piper for making our day so special. We had a great time!
Laura & Russell Roberts
Lynne & Anthony - Kariega Game Reserve, Eastern Cape
Hi Kirsty, Thank you so much for arranging such a memorable day. Our wedding was fantastic and
I did not have to get stressed or worried as you took care of everything. Your professionalism and
hard work was very much appreciated and it made the experience a very pleasant one. I would
highly recommend your services and want to thank you again. Finding the venue at the Homestead
was key and Adri, who is head of house there was brilliant making the day the easiest thing we
have ever done. Thank you again. Kind regards Lynne Davis
Joanna & Philip - Tintswalo Cape Town
I’m sure I thanked you on the day of the wedding but it’s all a bit of a blur now !! So thank you again for
making our day so wonderful.
Lianne & Marcel - Le Franschhoek
Dear Kirsty, Marcel and I would just like to thank you for the most amazing day of our lives and all of your
hard work leading up to our wedding at Le Franschhoek Hotel in the winelands. You made our wedding day
and the planning lead up to the wedding so easy and special for us. I couldn’t have asked for anything
more, everything ran smoothly, everyone was calm and relaxed and it was all down to your amazing
organization skills and attention to detail. The Le Franschhoek was out of this world, the grounds are so
beautiful, it was the perfect setting for a perfect day. The staff were so friendly and would go out of their
way to do anything for us and the food was amazing! Thank you once again Kirsty for everything that you
have done for us, you made it the best day of our lives. Kindest Regards, Lianne and Marcel
Jenny & Mike - Bartholomeus Klip
Dear Kirsty, after all the planning and anticipation, we can hardly believe that our wedding celebrations
are already something of the past. Whilst the magic of Bartholomeus Klip set the scene, what finally really
pulled everything together to make the celebration so special, was all your help in taking over and in
arranging & finalizing the details. You don’t know how much it meant to us to be able to just let go of the
responsibilities and to know that we were in good hands. It was so reassuring to be greeted with yoru
welcoming smile as we walked into the ceremony and this really freed us to just be and enjoy the events of
the day as the enfolded as we had planned them with you – thank you so much!
We look forward to the opportunity of recommending your services to others, as your professionalism &
hands-on friendly style lifted our wedding to our whole new level of enjoyment for us and all who were
there. With love, Jenny & Mike
