MORE ABOUT US
Where are you based and what areas do you cover?
We are primarily based in Johannesburg; however, we as well specialise in destination weddings.
How did you get started in weddings?
The “bug” to co-ordinate weddings started a long time ago; a couple of years passed and the need to plan and co-ordinate bespoke weddings grew stronger and working for a large Corporates was not working out. It was at that moment that I decided to officially launch Blue Olive Events.
What inspires you?
We are inspired by couples who know what they want and are willing to try out new ideas; who think outside the box and challenge the traditional ways. We love the love that each couple brings with them and how families, friends, and colleagues come together to celebrate that love.
Favourite place in South Africa?
That would be any place in South Africa where I can have a glass of wine, relax, and watch the sunset. If I were forced to choose it would be Cape Town, it’s full of magic and I love it more when the weather plays along.
What advice would you give to brides and grooms?
It’s always good to have a vision of what you like and what you would like your wedding to look, be, and feel like. However, many couples tend to get bogged down in the details and this shifts the focus away from their vision; don’t allow this to happen. Be open to suggestions from your planning team and don’t allow criticism from family and friends to get to you.
