What an amazing couple!
We officially met in person the week of their wedding at the beautiful La Paris Estate in Paarl. Prior to that day, we only spoke via online chats and video calls.I think all of us immediately knew this is going to be an amazing few months planning this wedding. I got even more excited when i realized that my clients are both CrossFit athletes! Being a CF coach and athlete myself, I could not wait to meet Aiofe & Mark face to face.What can I say – the most kind hearted and friendly couple ever! Not even to mention the family and friends!
We planned their very exciting wedding very thoroughly and as we always do we went over the top with different and out of this world concepts.Everything was perfect! With weddings like this and clients like Aiofe and Mark it makes my job 500 times better!
I can not wait to meet up with them again in the near future for some coffee and cake!
MORE ABOUT THE DAY
Words can’t accurately describe how much we appreciate everything you did for us in the planning of our wedding. We hope our testimonial guides more couples to you! You are the best of the best!!
We had our dream wedding at La Paris Estate , Franschoek, South Africa on the 8th of February 2020. It was the most perfect day we could possibly have imagined. I wish we could do it all over again. Our most special day would not have even been remotely possible without the most amazing service, expertise and support from Izandi and MT at IDO4U.
From the very start of our journey IDO4U were the utmost professionals. Most people describe wedding planning as a very stressful process, however I have to say for us it was made beyond easy and even fun. We had many a Friday night sitting down with a glass of wine to excitedly go through an email from IDO4U packed with ideas and options for our wedding. All we had to do was relax and browse through all the amazing venues, caters, musicians, photographers, make-up artists, everything that was put together for us. IDO4U had pre-selected every element in line with our vision and budget. They know everyone and everything on the South African wedding scene!
We had two events; the pre-wedding Braai and our big day. Double the organisation for IDO4U – not that it stopped them from putting on two stunning events! The pre-wedding Braai was build up but majorly set the scene – it was divine, food, an acoustic band, scenery, lawn games – what more could you want?!? We also had so many crazy ideas and different elements that we wanted to add to our wedding, which was slightly out of the norm. This was completely facilitated by IDO4U – we were never told no, or reigned in, and would not of been a realm of possibility if we didn’t have Izandi and MT always willing to go the extra mile – hello smoke bubble machine!
South Africa is a dream location. The weather, the food, the mountains, the culture, the food (again, yes!). Our wedding guests are still reliving elements of our wedding – the show that was put on by IDO4U. One particular area that we completely trusted Izandi with was the food. She highly recommended Two Chefs to cater our wedding, and people have not stopped talking about the beef they were served since. It’s not usual to come away from the wedding and be raving about the food!
Having Izandi and MT as our wedding planners allowed us to completely relax on both the day before the wedding at the Pre-Wedding Braai and the day of the wedding. There was so in many elements that were picked up by MT & Izandi that we didn’t even realise were happening on the day! For example guests were organised, furniture was moved, food was put in place, running times were changed, guests were lost and found! The bride and groom was simply left to enjoy the day and soak it all up. I (Aoife) am naturally a control freak and hate the idea of not managing everyone and everything, no doubt if I was left to my own devices I would have. However, I just didn’t need to be. Everything was handled and seamless. Perfection.
Our wedding was a fairytale, the photos don’t do it justice! If you want this for your wedding, you need IDO4U.
