How did you get into bridal blogging? It was a natural extension of our business which has luxury wedding planning and design at its core. We are Africa’s top planning company and with our global clientele literally being based all-around the world, we wanted to bring Africa’s exclusive destination trends, inspiration and real-life style stories to the fore.
What do you love most about weddings? The cultural diversity, the many fabulous ideas we get to interpret, and that our industry has grown beyond imagination in the last decade.
What’s the most underrated aspect of any ceremony? The timing—sticking to the plan yet making it all flow effortlessly.
Your secret to staying calm under pressure? Preparation, preparation, preparation...(and years of experience)!
Most unique wedding you’ve ever featured? A marquee wedding on the banks of the Zambezi River in Zimbabwe—with incredibly complex logistics across African borders and elephants having a swim next to the glamorous marquee. It was magical!
Your number one piece of advice for any blushing bride? Work with a professional planner to help you be unique in your ideas and truly enjoy the day!
