What our clients say

Meghna & Andrew

“Niki and Madri, it has been a journey and a real pleasure working with both of you… your little touches of checking on me and being a split second away from rescuing any and every situation made you both a fabulous team! Thank you for making our wedding day so extra special! We just wanted to let you know that all the running around, the solicited opinions, the intent to make it a memorable series of moments has not gone unnoticed and we are truly grateful to all of you for being an excellent team.”

Nasreen & Gavin

“Planning a wedding in Cape Town, when you don’t live there (and even when you do), is no easy task and so working with “The Event Planners” was one of the best decisions we could have made. Madri and Niki are absolutely wonderful, and they made our wedding day a dream come true. Madri goes out of her way to make your day special, she is so helpful during the entire planning process and is always available so that you never feel like you’re doing it alone. Thank you so much for being so great to work with and for giving us our fairytale wedding!”

Otega & Fola

“Niki, the best wedding planner hands down. From our very first conversation, I knew she was the right planner for me and my spouse. She was very responsive and easy to get in contact with, which was extremely important as I am based in the States. Her attention to detail is immaculate. She recommended amazing vendors. On the day of my wedding I felt so at ease. My spouse and I were able to take in the beautiful scenery and spend time with our loved ones. Again, without Niki, our wedding would not have been possible. All of my guests not only rave about the wedding but also about Niki. Thank you Niki!”

Kate & Jason

“Niki at the Event Planners is an all-around RockStar! She pulled off the wedding of our dreams last October, from hunting down our picture-perfect venue to aligning the decor and style to match our particular tastes and running our day (or rather weekend) like clockwork. I work within the hospitality industry and had very high expectations and was super detail orientated, from the food and beverages on offer, to the interactive stations on display and outsourced vendors (Werner is so incredibly talented!). Niki helped sculpt my multiple ideas into a structured timeline we could all work with, at the same time dealing with my unusual work hours and overseas obligations. Niki took this all in her stride, making the experience fun and exciting whilst remaining realistic and giving fantastic suggestions from her wealth of experience. I never thought I would find someone who I could trust to take the reins so that I could sit back and just make memories. In the 2 years that we spoke and planned, she was always available, passionate about her work and genuine. Never once did we feel that our wedding was “just another wedding”. Niki also went above and beyond to see our celebrations through, amid traumatic personal family circumstances, remaining professional and bringing her sparkle to our wedding day. I cannot recommend her more highly.”

Crystal & Chika

“Thank you so much for helping our wedding dreams come true! We couldn’t have done it without you. You were a fantastic advocate and advisor throughout the process and curated a top-notch team. We had an absolute blast and will be forever grateful.”

Candice & Gary

“We live in New York City so planning a wedding abroad was not an option. We worked mostly with Madri who is an absolute dream. She was beyond helpful, accommodating, knowledgeable and professional. So quick to help with all of our crazy requests and last-minute changes. She also planned a wine tour day with our massive crew which was flawless and so much fun. Having Niki and Madri at the wedding was the biggest relief ever. They took care of everything!!!! The family didn’t have to worry about a thing which was one of our biggest concerns having the wedding and reception at their home. They made things we were told “could not be done in Cape Town” happen and executed perfectly. I cannot recommend The Event Planners enough!”

Deepa & Natasha

“One year later and we still talk about how effortless and magical you helped our wedding day become. Our guests still talk about how amazing our wedding day was. You truly made our day extra special and are such a great team to work with. We did not have to worry about a thing and everything turned out more magical than we could have imagined. It was an absolute pleasure working with you and we would highly recommend The Event Planners. Thank you for everything!”

Alet & Doug

“Thanks to Niki and Madri we have only positive, special memories of our wedding day. It is definitely a skill to match the ideas in a client’s head to the right supplier (we wanted a very eco-friendly, yet festive and classy décor, which they totally got right). I credit them for making the lead-up as well as our big day completely stress-free, despite a tight timeline. They really take your special wishes to heart and know exactly how to translate it into the right décor, music and vibe for your event. We have had so many compliments from guests attending our wedding and after a year are still on a high from the party of a lifetime!”

Jade & Brad

“Madri and the team were a pleasure to work with from day 1. For the majority of our wedding planning, we were living overseas and Madri ensured that we were informed at every step of the way; from sourcing suppliers to matching the ideas we had through to scheduling and dealing with our last-minute changes. Without her, we would never have been able to create the day we had and are so grateful for her patience and grace on the day and couldn’t have wished for a more perfect wedding!”

Michelle & Stéfan

“Thank you to Niki from The Event Planners for making our dream wedding come true!! Niki is simply amazing and I did not at any point feel stressed or nervous about our big day as she had everything under control. Werner simply wowed our guests with his incredible talent on numerous musical instruments as well as kept us all on the dance floor until the last minute. Wish we could relive this day.”

Chane & Dean

“We were really happy with the service provided by THE EVENT PLANNERS and Madri was absolutely amazing! She guided us every step of the way and met our every need. Our wedding day was everything we could have asked for and more, and we would like to thank Madri for her excellent service! We would definitely highly recommend THE EVENT PLANNERS to anyone looking to hire a coordinator. Dankie vir al jou moeite Madri, jy is a ster .”

Suzanne & Gerhard

“We really enjoyed every second of our day, and all the planning on the way to it. You made such an incredible difference, and we couldn’t be happier with how everything turned out. Really. So thank you very, very much!! Werner was AMAZING. Everything went so smoothly. It was such a pleasure.”

Karin & Johan

“Thank you for a well-organised wedding. It exceeded all our expectations”
