Everything about weddings is special and each occasion is unique… I love capturing the personalities of the couple, exploring the fine details of colour and design, and seeing the transformation from the couples initial vision to the Wedding Day with happy guests celebrating, champagne flowing and sweet romantic glances between the newly married couple.
Weddings are a very special time for everyone involved and a day that will forever bring happy memories.
I started my journey into Wedding Coordination and Design through theatre.
Having grown up in a theatrical family within the UK, I went on to become a professional dancer and traveled the world performing for 10 years. Traveling has opened my eyes to so many cultures, which I believe has inspired my eye for design. I also met my wonderful husband traveling and he brought me to South Africa where I got to organise our very own special wedding, and now have a beautiful little boy keeping me on my toes!!
During my years as a dancer I started hosting special events and coordinating weddings and parties for friends and family to put my organizational skills to the test and went on to acquire a Diploma in Special Events, Weddings & Design with UKAWEP.
From there I expanded into coordinating weddings within the UK, hosting annual European work retreats for a large global company and also working as an onsite Wedding Coordinator within Johannesburg. I now specialise in Wedding Coordination within South Africa for local and overseas couples wishing to create a beautiful Destination Wedding, and since starting Weddings By Tasha I have also started up a full events company called Bourbon & Bloom where I create unique children's parties and plan and coordinate social celebrations and corporate events.
I love having the freedom to work for myself and to be as creative as my couples wish me to be whilst having every detail and moment of their special day timed and straightened to perfection.
It is such a buzz to see the day come together seamlessly with couples relaxed and enjoying their Wedding Day with family and friends celebrating together.
