Joanna and Arno married on August 12th 2017 at
Red Ivory Lodge in Hartbeesport.
With myself (Joanna the bride) not being from South Africa or living there I knew I needed a wedding planner. I did a lot of internet research and made a short list of the wedding planners I liked. Most took time to write back and some had very copy paste answers. I found a lot of the wedding planners in SA to be divas, I wasn't looking for a TV start or anyone dramatic. Tasha stood out to us. She knew we had a vision for our wedding and she gave us ideas on how we could make it a reality. While we didn't have a budget, we didn't want to spend unnecessary money. Tasha never once suggested outrageous ideas or visions that were costly.
Tasha had a great list of suppliers but was also never opposed to working with suppliers that I found. Due to the distance, I was able to meet with the suppliers face to face only once. She also organized skype sessions for us so we never felt out of touch with the suppliers. The decorator (Bloom Room) worked very well over pinterest/whatsapp messages to create our vision, the cupcakes by Kelly Jayne's were delicious (I even took leftovers on my honeymoon), everyone comments on the hair and makeup, Jaryd Smith (the live guitarist) made the wedding into a fun party and and the photo/videoography captured the day leaving so beautifully.
I couldn't have imagined that my wedding would have been so perfect.
Thank you Tasha for organizing and creating a day that we will never forget.
