Wedding Concepts Luxury Wedding Planners
Wedding Concepts was started in 2004 and have been part of the wedding industry leaders in South Africa for 15 years. Being one of the first local wedding companies, they have amassed lots of experience and memorable moments over the years.
Christina Holt and the team at Wedding Concepts are known for planning some of the most luxurious South African destination weddings. They are considered amongst the wedding elite internationally and were awarded the ‘2019 Best Planner in Africa’ award at the prestigious Destination Wedding Planners Congress in Dubai this year.
They not only plan weddings in South Africa but also other African countries and internationally. One such a memorable wedding was on the banks of the Zambezi River in Zimbabwe – with a herd of elephants as the special guests.
Christina ascribes some of their amazing wedding setups to their wonderful clients who allowed them to be very creative and innovative. Clients who put their trust in this team of professionals, giving them the freedom to make their dream wedding a reality. Check out one of their featured real weddings on Pink Book.
What sets them apart from other wedding planners?
They have a large client base both locally and internationally. And the one thing that all their clients know they will be receiving is five-star, impeccable customer service. Wedding Concepts pride themselves on going above and beyond to deliver whatever their client requires. Not only on the wedding day but throughout the whole planning process.
The team had a global mindset with years of international experience. This helps them connect to their international couples looking to get married in South Africa. They offer an experience and service that perfectly suits their high profile client base.
When the wedding planning process starts, it is a simple but in-depth process. The coordinator works together with the couple to find the perfect wedding venue to suit their needs. And if the venue size does not suit the guest list, don’t worry – they specialize in creating some of the most elaborate and stunning marquee weddings.
One of the amazing services that they offer is to create a visual setup of the table layout and decor for the wedding. Most of the time they can create a 3D rendering of the layout that perfectly illustrates exactly what the wedding will look like before the big day.
Based on their years of experience in the South African wedding industry, they can easily help find the perfect vendors for every wedding. They take care of the negotiations with the bands, musicians, production companies, lighting companies and any technical specs. All of these are things most people don’t even think about when they start planning their wedding.
One of their most elaborate luxury weddings:
One of their most elaborate weddings was a recent one held in Cape Town for a couple from Johannesburg. This was a fantastic project to work on and creating lots of personalized elements for the couple. They had to customize almost everything that the guests saw and experienced on the day. Even things like the tables and bar structures were custom made.
A stunning personalized monogram was also created for the couple and this design was emblazoned across absolutely everything for them. The day also included an enormous amount of flowers and amazing entertainment for the guests. This was a completely bespoke and unique wedding, really a one-of-a-kind. Something that will remain in the memories of their couple, the guests and the Wedding Concepts team.
