I was born in Soviet Union, lived in Siberia and then after collapse of Soviet regime, traveled the world with my parents. In 1994, my parents chose South Africa as our new home. It was easy to fall in love with South Africa, it’s culture, beautiful vistas and everything it has to offer. I graduated from Epworth in 1999 and chose to study Psychology at the University of Johannesburg. I completed an Honours Degree in 2004 and I am currently a registered Pre-Marital and Marriage Counsellor with FAMSA. I am married to an incredible man for 12 years now, and together we are raising our three children. As a family, we love traveling, reading, gardening and spending quality time together.
I found myself immersed in the world of weddings in 2007, when wedding planning in South Africa was at its infancy. My company was one of the first companies in South Africa to specialise in wedding planning. Over the years my brand evolved and became one of the most respected and well known wedding companies in the country. I have been blessed with incredible clients who inspired me, put their trust in my process, believed my creative vision and allowed me to grow through creativity and imagination.
My boutique event design studio is based in Bryanston, Johannesburg, and I specialise in bespoke weddings in South Africa. I am obsessed with weddings, and every dimension of the event. I am a natural problem solver, avid brainstormer and highly organised wedding planner. Because I offer highly personalised service, I can only take on limited numbers of weddings per year. I strive to give my clients, their families and their guest an ultimate experience in luxury. A Splendid Wedding is beautifully designed, flawlessly executed and raved about for years to come.
