The Wedding Fairy

What does your company do?

The Wedding Fairy is a Destination Wedding Planner who assists couples who live abroad and want to get married in Cape Town, South Africa to plan their most magical celebration.

What is your biggest success?

How far I have come. I started as a blog, grew into a side hustle, and then soon a full-time business. On my own, I have taught myself as I go, messed up, pivoted, and continued to push to where I am today. I am still learning and I still have so much more that I want to accomplish.

What has been your biggest hurdle?

Resources. While allowing the space for the business to grow, I still needed to support my family and pay the bills. While finances were one factor, time was another as I needed to do everything on my own and figure it out fast, until I could in the hope pay someone to assist me. My age has also been a big factor, particularly because I look a lot younger than I am. You need to learn to demand respect from the industry, couples, and those around you to execute an amazing wedding day.
