So here is a little about myself:
I grew up in an incredibly beautiful part of South Africa called the Garden Route. When I was about 8 or 9 years old, my parents moved here from the north of the country after falling in love with the natural beauty of this particular part of the coastline.
I have always been passionate about weddings. I have dreamed about my own wedding just like any little girl would.
About 8 years ago I decided to qualify as being a wedding coordinator. After successfully doing this I started working for a rental company who specialized in wedding rentals (in the hope of connecting with local wedding vendors and getting clients).
Since my home town of Plettenberg Bay is incredibly beautiful, people travel from all over the world to get married here. To have an idea, just have a look at the profile of this wedding photographer I used to work with: Glen Murray Photography
During my work in the wedding industry I met and heard from many bridal couples looking for the perfect wedding vendors (DJ's, Florists, Coordinators, Caterers etc), and I then decided to start a directory site with my then partner, Alan to help get the couples in touch with the vendors. Get Married Garden Route was born. Alan still manages Get Married Garden Route and it does incredibly well. He has done a great job at giving it a well needed facelift!
Seeing a gap in the market for a good wedding DJ, I convinced Alan (a DJ of more than 15 years experience in clubs and radio) to start a wedding DJ company and to teach me the ropes. We grew the company and often did two weddings a weekend. We even had couples change their wedding date in order to book us if we were already booked on the original date they decided on! I loved playing music for weddings. It was great being a part of a couple's special day and contributing to their and their guests' enjoyment of the day.
wedding music company still does incredibly well and Alan still does the music
for weddings and parties regularly. I was also inspired by this
experience of being a wedding DJ to create this site to help couples choose
the best music for their wedding day.
I also started another site, www.beachwedding-guide.com to help couples plan their beach weddings.
In 2009 I decided that if I wanted to travel the world it would be now or never. I got a once in a lifetime opportunity to work on a luxury yacht and have been doing this for 3 years. I love it! I have met many wonderful people and I have traveled to some of the world's most amazing places and amazing beaches like Miami, the Caribbean islands, Panama, Galapagos Islands, the Azores, the French Riviera, the Italian coast, Malta, Greece and Croatia. And I hope to visit even more.
All the while I like to keep up to date with what is happening in the world of weddings and I still keep contact with many of the wedding coordinators I worked with. I also like to read great wedding blogs like www.stylemepretty.com
