About Us

Nicolette Weddings’ is run by myself, a seasoned Cape Town wedding planner with over 10 years of industry experience in local and international weddings, as well as large and small scale private, corporate and government events.

I started my career in New York, and then moved across to the UK where I loved working as an Events Manager for the British Government. I then found my way back to Cape Town to head up a co-ordination department in a global engineering firm, before pursuing my dream of utilizing my strong organizational skills while working in the beauty and romance of weddings.

I also completed my Bachelors degree in Psychology during that time, which helps me to work with and understand brides better on a daily basis.

Raised in Cape Town, I have developed my knowledge and network of contacts over a lifetime; at venues, caterers, dress makers, DJs, musicians, photographers, bakeries, florists, equipment hire, au pairs, travel agents, superb honeymoon spots and many more.

My love of planning, organising and bringing together a perfectly orchestrated and enjoyable event, along with my passion for all things beautiful and elegant, makes for the perfect combination for an inspired, and dedicated wedding planner.

We look forward to meeting you, learning your personal style and reflecting it in a wedding that exceeds your dreams.
