“From our happy couples.”
The weddings we create are only as good as the extent to which they surpass our clients’ expectations. Here we proudly share with you some of the thoughts of those who have already journeyed down the aisle with us.
Alistair & Michael – New York
Thanks again so much for everything. You really got exactly what we were going for and made the process so easy and it all came together beautifully. We can’t thank you enough! It was hands down the happiest day of my life, and I know Michael feels the same. Everything was exactly how we wanted it. You were amazing! Thank you! I wish we could do it all over again too. I’ve been quite depressed since getting back to New York actually!
Camilla & Jason – London
Jason and I just wanted to say a big thank you to the team for making our day so fabulous! It was literally out of this world and more amazing than we could have hoped for! Kate, you were always so helpful and no request was ever too much and there was always a plan. You also really understood us as a couple and what we were looking for which made everything so much easier. You took the stress out of the day so we could just really enjoy and focus on every moment. It was truly the best day of my life – cheesy but true!
Sarah & Jehan – Johannesburg
A really special thank you is in order for all the hard work your team put into making our traditional wedding so wonderful! Thank you so much for all the great work, everything was perfect. It was beyond what we expected and was absolutely beautiful, completely left us speechless. We didn’t even have time take it all in as there was just so much to appreciate. Every detail was so artistic and so different to anything else we have experienced. Thank you so so SO much for making it a wonderful and memorable day!
Olamide & Sefunmi - Nigeria
From our first meeting with Wedding Concepts, we were blown away by their super attention to detail. Literally, no stone was left unturned. It was a masterpiece in transforming our ideas of what we thought our special day should be like into reality. The entire team at WC made us feel like family and we wouldn’t hesitate recommending them to anyone. It’s a cliché sometimes said, but truly and from the bottom of our hearts, we say thank you for planning one of the best days of our lives!
Bianca & Brandon – Cape Town
Thank you so very much to you all for a most wonderful wedding. What a day and what a night – simply lovely! Thank you for looking after us all so well! I have done parties at our home before and I was so very pleased I had you all to organise it all. I know how much work is involved and was very impressed with your calm and professional manner – you operate a very professional outfit and would like to congratulate you all.
Benita & Efize – Nigeria
Still so speechless and really don’t know how to say thank you enough. My dream wedding would not have been possible without you guys. I actually miss the 1 Million emails a day. You are the most professional and at the same time the friendliest team I ever had the pleasure of working with. Attention to detail – ace! Going above and beyond – you did just that. To my star team – I can never express my gratitude enough. Thank you so much for such a beautifully planned wedding – you guys are awesome. We still get compliments how beautiful & seamless the day was – thank you, thank you, thank you!
Laura & Andrew – Cape Town
I just wanted to say a big thank you for yesterday. It was honestly the most incredible day and totally exceeded all my expectations. Everything was perfect, worked like clockwork and I could not have asked for more. I know I wasn’t the easiest bride, but you remained calm, professional and accommodating throughout and I really appreciate it. The flowers were the most insanely beautiful I have ever seen, the food was out of this world & it was the most delicious cake I have ever tasted. It was our dream wedding and we loved every minute of it.
Eugenia & Justin – Hong Kong
The wedding was absolutely fantastic for all! Thank you! Thanks for a seamlessly planned wedding – it is everything we could’ve hoped for. Many of our guests have commented on how great it was. We look forward to the Photos and Videos!
Natalie & Carl – Texas
Just a note to say thank you both for an unbelievable wedding! It was the best day ever! We’ve been on Safari ever since and loving this time together. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Jenifer & JP – London
We’re back in the UK now – it feels rather strange to think that since the wedding is done, someone who was an important part of a time in our lives will move on to other projects. But what a success, we were so thrilled with how things panned out. Your advice was invaluable & I really loved the furniture you picked for outside. Thank you once again for your professionalism and calm. Wishing you a year of chilled out clients and easily fulfilled demands.
Anne & Christoph - Germany
After traveling through Southern Africa for our honeymoon filled with unbelievable experiences, we now had some time to look back to our amazing intimate wedding at Grand Dédale. Thank you Lauren for the perfect organization and for being a calm companion during our day – always in the back seat but always there. You made the most beautiful day of our lives into something intimate and special. Thank you!
Gretchen & Gabe - Canada
We had a lovely holiday and are back in Canada again. Thank you for everything you did for our wedding day! It was perfect and exactly what Gabe and I had in mind. We loved every moment and the guests didn’t stop telling us how beautifully it was all done. Thank you for making sure everything ran so smoothly!
Palesa & Kundayi - Johannesburg
Working with Wedding Concepts & specifically Kate was an absolute blessing to us. She showed exceptional leadership & always gave us a set of options plus her preferences which we found useful in making choices. Kate was considerate of family sensitivities & cared for our wedding like it was her own. On the day, she kept checking to make sure that all was well with me. We had a beautiful & relaxed day, perfect in every way thanks to her very organized nature & calm demeanour. Thank you Kate, without you our special day wouldn’t have been as special!
Judith & Jean-Dominique – Congo
It had long been a dream of mine to have a different type of wedding…contemporary & chic…and I thank Wedding Concepts and especially Candice for her involvement and for making this a reality. It was an exceptional day! Everything was perfect and the attention to details was astounding. The day was just beautiful. Once again my husband and I thank you for this awesome service.
Tamalin & Jude - Johannesburg
I just received the wedding images – they totally blew me away… magical to say the least!
Thank you so much for the blog post and for the kind words. It was really one of the best days ever and I’m still suffering from the post wedding blues. Thanks for all your help over the last year and for making our wedding what it was!
Gretchen & Gordon - USA
From the parents of the bride: Just a short note to tell you all what a wonderful experience this wedding was for us and everyone who attended. Gretchen’s friends were over the moon and not a dry eye in the house that evening! The details: flowers, makeup, barn lighting, food, and venue were absolutely perfect! I say that from the bottom of my heart. Wedding Concepts working with Gordon and Gretchen surpassed anything we could have done here at home. This was exactly what Gretchen had in mind – she was overwhelmed with happiness. I smile often thinking of it all! The wedding was so simple and sweet; so perfect. Thank you so much! You all are a first class group of planners.
Carmelice & Bruno – Angola
First and foremost I would like to thank you and the Wedding Concept team for all your input in planning the wedding, both Carmelice and I thought you were fundamental for the outcome of the event. You made the whole experience much better than we expected, so thank you once again!
Lara & Louis - Botswana
From the father of the bride: Thank you so much for organising Lara and Louis’s wedding! We really enjoyed the day without any of the worry and stress. The build-up and then the execution were flawless and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend your services to any others.
So thank you so much for making the day so special for us – it’s a cliché to say that it is a moment to be remembered for ever but that is true in this case.
Mara & Mirko - Italy
We decided to get married with less than 2 months’ time to plan and chose South Africa, a country we love, but far away from us (from Italy)!
From the beginning we’ve been very happy – it’s been so easy and stress free.
It’s incredible how Wedding Concepts understood what we envisioned and it was so beautiful to be surprised on the day – with more than what we ever expected.
We’ll never forget our dinner gazebo! Thank you so much to Lauren and Wedding Concepts – what a great agency to plan with!
Christelle & Zak - Johannesburg
Thank you and your team for the most magic, special and perfect wedding that anyone could ever have wished for. Every single person has raved about how amazing it was – the best wedding they’ve ever been to, and it’s really largely thanks to you and your amazing attention to detail, down to the gift boxes delivered to each room. The décor at the venue blew their minds, the flowers were exquisite, the menu sublime, the cellar unbelievable – seriously there was not a single thing that I would have changed. Thank you for getting such magic people to work with as well – we laughed so much together!
Janine & Mohammed - New York
We wanted to send a big, heartfelt thank you for all of the support from the whole team! Our day was absolutely unforgettable and we had a fantastic time with all of our family and friends in the events before & after the wedding! We appreciate your flexibility & patience through this stressful & often very complicated process. We are incredibly grateful and very thankful to have you as a part of our planning team!
Jumoke & Seyi - Nigeria

Grainne & Etienne – Uganda
Arranging a destination wedding with guests from 12 different countries, coupled with our own hectic travel schedules was never going to be an easy task but Megan made is so incredibly easy for us. Our wedding surpassed our expectations and was the most magical day of our lives. It would not have been possible without the unending support and guidance from Wedding Concepts both in the lead up to our big day and on the day itself. Thank you guys so much!

We are back from our honeymoon, time to look through pictures from our guests and time to write emails. The important ones first: Thank you Megan for organizing our wedding so perfectly! It was a wonderful day throughout. Our guests were delighted/amazed/over the moon…..while Tom and I actually managed to enjoy the day, knowing that everything was taken care of in the best possible way. The setting, music, decor all fitted perfectly together and most important it fitted perfectly for us. You did a wonderful job!

Our special day would not have happened exactly how I wanted it without you!

Our wedding was perfect and you made that happen for us! Thank you again. You made us so happy on our wedding day.
Marcia & Jermaine – Virginia
We had a fantastic time in South Africa ….! As my cousin said “this is the best vacation EVER !”
I cannot express to you how grateful we are to you – everything about the wedding exceeded my expectations. I truly felt like a little girl at the age of 47! I loved, loved, loved everything ! Even Jermaine (who is very reserved) said I really “made it happen” and “out did myself” – and I said … it wasn’t me … it was all Megan.
Martina & Klaus - Munich
We have to say THANK YOU to you for the perfect organization of our beautiful wedding day. It was really a perfect day! The honeymoon was also the best time of our live, South Africa is such a beautiful country and we enjoyed every minute of our travel! We will definitely come back!
Limia & Ahmed - Johannesburg

Thank you so much for absolutely everything. For your patience, calm disposition, problem-solving ability, integrity, tactfulness and creativity.

We also particularly appreciate you spending time with Jordan and Zahara and keeping them occupied! Thank you again and we hope we can keep in touch! So, so many thanks!
Tessa & Nick - London
Just a little note to say thank you so so much for everything you have done in making this day possible! You have just been amazing – so kind, so accommodating and just such a calming force. Nothing was ever a problem! Thank you so much for understanding my controlling perfectionism – you understood my look & style from the beginning and it couldn’t have been easier! Whats more is that you’ve just been so lovely and it feels as if a friend has been helping us! Thank you so so much. I felt so calm knowing you were there on the day.
Sacha & Mark - London

Truly you made this totally unforgettable. Can’t thank you enough for all your hard work. We feel blessed we found you.

A huge thank you to your whole team for making the whole wedding planning process an absolute pleasure. There is no way in the world we could have enjoyed such a wonderful and memorable few days in Franschhoek without your help. So much so, that we wish we could go back and do it all over again! Steve and I have managed to start getting friends to agree to a ten year anniversary trip to Franschhoek and another huge party so we’ll give you a call then!

To my beautiful and wonderful Kate!! Where do I begin. It was completely not what I expected, but so much more!!

Lindsay & Chris - Botswana
No matter how many words to describe how we felt on our wedding day, nothing comes near it. Chris and I would like to thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts for giving us our dream wedding. It truly was mind-blowing, breathtaking and outstandingly beautiful. We are still struggling to believe it actually happened. Everything, from the lighting, the decor, the food, the service, the stationery to the music was excellent. Our guests are all still going on about it. You made our wedding – a ”fairytale” – come true.

We can’t stop thinking about the wedding or talking about it with our friends and family! They all agreed it’s the best wedding they have ever been to in their lives!

I’m sooo happy with the outcome of everything – it was a dream come true wedding. You all have been awesome to work with.

Once again, thank you for everything and for the very personal involvement that you took in their special day.

Thank you for everything you did for us to make sure that Matt and Rosie’s wedding was perfect in every way. Your professionalism and incredible attention to detail ensured an absolutely flawless event.

With grateful thanks again…

Thank you for all your help in the lead up to the wedding and on the day itself.

I think the wedding was an absolute success and Wedding Concepts definitely exceeded my expectations, so thanks for all your hard work.

We just wanted to thank you for our amazing, unbelievable, fabulous, spectacular and absolutely perfect wedding! We loved every single second and the whole day from start to finish was just magical and beyond any expectations we had ever had. Words actually cannot describe our happiness on the day! Everything was just amazing from our actual ceremony area to the reception space with the most beautiful flowers I have ever seen in my life, the dancefloor, the lights, the food, the stationary, the spectacular cake – I could actually go on forever and ever! We know how hard you worked on it and we greatly appreciate everything. So many people have emailed us to say they have never seen a wedding so beautiful. You are the best!
Lucy & Terence - Cardiff

I don’t really know what to say except thank you. The wedding was so far beyond anything I had dreamed. We have had the most amazing feedback. Everyone just seemed to have the most wonderful time… the overwhelming theme has been (a) the warmth and love and happiness of the evening, and (b) the attention to detail. I know you worked so hard to achieve exactly those balances. I will never be able to put into words what you did for us and our families, by putting together such a warm, special, and fairytale evening.
Anita & Rob - London
Well we’d just like to try to put into words how grateful we are to have had you as our co-ordinator. From the very first email you sent you stood head and shoulders above the other co-ordination companies. You completely seemed to understand what we were after. We loved the fact that the team was so young and fresh – awesome! You also really tailor to an intimate wedding and we appreciate that – I think that is a real strength of Wedding Concepts.
Dee & Joe - Dublin
Thank you once again for organising such an incredible wedding for Joe and I. We are still on a post wedding high. We’ve seen lots of photos and the whole event was just amazing.

Kirsty & Martin - Dubai
I don’t even know where to begin to say THANK YOU. It was so much fun meeting you, working on the day together…having lots of fun whilst planning. You have done an amazing job. I loved every bit of the day. Everything ran smoothly and I did not have a moment of being nervous or worried about how things would turn out. People kept saying we were so relaxed…of course we were…you were doing all the planning! I really appreciate all that you did to make this the most fantastic day for both of us. I just loved it all.

I speak of you highly to those who comment on the marvellous event we had. It was a stunning, magical event which will live on in our memories always!

Thank you for all your hard work and support over the last few months and for ensuring that our wedding day ran so smoothly and without a glitch! We were thrilled with the final outcome!
Pippa & Peter - Cape Town
An enormous thank you. I know I said it on the night but we really felt that you did a brilliant job. Lots of other people have said the same! From dealing with speeches running over, to appearing with pins and scissors at the right moment. You were amazing! The flowers and everything else was more lovely than I could have imagined – we loved every minute of it.
Antjie & Moritz - Berlin
We just wanted to let you know, again, that we really appreciated the great day you organised for us! Starting with the perfect location, having Christine as a photographer with us and Robert who did a very special ceremony, amazing weather (I think “your keeping fingers crossed” helped) excellent food … etc. You really did a great job and we will always remember this special day. THANK YOU so much!
Elizabeth & Gordon - Sydney
We really had a wonderful time at the wedding and have received fabulous feedback from our guests. We want to thank you for making everything look and feel so fantastic and go so smoothly! The whole ‘event’ was just what we had hoped for – chic but relaxed – which left a very memorable impression on both local and overseas guests. Your attention to detail was superb and did not go un-noticed.
