Hi Kirsty,
Thank you so much for your help in creating an intimate, personal celebration for us, our family and guests.
Everything was perfect! And we couldn’t have asked for a better person to work with to bring our vision to life.
Your thoughtfulness, patience, grace under pressure – words are not enough to express our deep gratitude. You seamlessly coordinated all our vendors and added special touches for the ceremony and reception. If you are looking for a coordinator who knows her trade and is professional as well as super friendly not only to you but also to your family and friends, do not hesitate to give Kirsty a call.  Yorm & Edward

“We were blown away by how beautiful and perfect our Wedding in South Africa turned out to be! It was gorgeous, better than we imagined, and just so special! Our guests couldn’t stop speaking about our wedding for days afterwards. Things like ‘your ceremony was the right amount of perfect’, ‘the colors and flowers were magical’, ‘the dj had us dancing all night!’.. ‘your wedding planner is wonderful!’ Kirsty Marmarellis, from Weddings Out of Africa, has a very special place in our hearts, she was fantastic and helped us plan a day that we envisioned! She went above and beyond to make sure everything was taken care of, the day felt effortless and truly about us. It was magical and unforgettable. If you are planning a destination wedding in South Africa, Kirsty is the perfect fit, she knows her suppliers and recommends only the best quality service. You will have happy guests and a stress free wedding day. She helped us plan things from abroad with a few Skype sessions and emails, and even though we had never met any of the suppliers or seen the venue, Kirsty provided the best value for money and quality that exceeded our expectations. Kirsty we love you and thankyou for making our day- ‘a day we will never forget.’  Love you to bits, Tijana and Johnathon”

Hi Kirsty,

I just wanted to drop you an email expressing how thankful we are to you for everything you arranged and did for us! It truly was the most perfect day in every way and it certainly wouldn’t have been possible without you. You have a gift for understanding what people want, even if they don’t even know it themselves!  So thank you very, very much. You have given us both memories and moments we will treasure for the rest of our lives!

It has been the most amazing, overwhelming adventure in the most beautiful country we have ever visited!

Kindest regards,   Sarah and Baz xxx

I would like to thank you Kirsty for this beautiful day. You made is magical for me and I will forever thank you. It was definitely out of this world. It was more than I imagined and you made us all happy. Thank you ladies for making this day a special and memorable day for us. Love from Melody

Melody & Alan (United Kingdom) - Twelve Apostles

Ladies, you made our day so, so memorable in every way. Sam you were such a star on the day and well into the late hours. It was not a traditional wedding in any sense and making it as authentic as Megs always dreamed was because of you both. I would highly recommend your services!

Will call you when back from Honeymoon, in a tree top lodge but not on email from later today.

Much love! Alex Huber

Hi Kirsty,

Compliments of the season to you. Wishing you all the best for 2016 J

I wanted to thank you for putting together our fairytale wedding. It was a dream come true and it would not have been possible with you! I really appreciate your enthusiasm and patience over the 12 month planning period, and for everything you did on the day. Everything went off according to plan and we could not have asked for anything more!   Please do keep in touch and I look forward to seeing more of the amazing weddings you put together on your website and Facebook page J

Kind regards, Santhal

First off, Cape Town was the most genius place to have the wedding and I am so happy that I got to benefit from the beauty of the city. But most importantly, all our international guests absolutely LOVED it! They turned their trip into a week long holiday and enjoyed the weather, food, wine and tourist attractions to such an extent that for months after they were thanking us for giving them an excuse to visit SA for the first time. Then I got to Kirsty. Well, what a life save.   What an amazing experience working with Kirsty! I connected immediately, she listened to my wants and needs and then catered the planning perfectly around that. Kirsty was methodical about timelines and keeping me informed every step of the way with what was happening. She took care of absolutely everything including all my guests’ travel, transfer and accommodation and I literally handed all responsibility over to her. The planning process proved to be as easy as pie, thanks only to the brilliant Kirsty!
Then came the wedding day itself. It was absolutely perfect! Every little thing we had discussed was there, the venue looked incredible, every little detail was exactly as I had imagined it – and that was thanks to Kirsty being able to take my vision and turn it into reality without me being in the same city!!!  Nicole Mansour

“Planning a destination wedding is never easy let alone when the bride and groom live in New York and London respectively! We cannot thank Kirsty enough for making our celebrations so special.  Beautiful taste, highly professional and meticulous in detail, we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her.” Caroline & Steve White-Cooper

Steve & Caroline (US & UK) - Constantia Glen

Dear Kirsty, just a small note and a huge “thank you” for all you have done for our wedding.  We absolutely could not have done this without and you have made the organisation from afar much easier!  You have pointed us in the right direction for choices we have made and give us your advice to ensure we got the “A Team!”

It’s been lovely getting to know you and we hope we remain in contact so when we are next down in the Cape we can go for another round of golf together.  Thanks once again.Peter & Kimberley xxx

We just wanted to write to you expressing our gratitude and to thank you for making it a truly special and wonderful day rain and all, we have been truly blessed a hundred times over with all the rain. We can’t thank you enough for everything you have done for us and our families.

We have sang your praises to all our friends and have encouraged people to get in contact with you when they get married.  Based on that we would like to provide you with some feedback on the whole experience as we know how important it is for your business.

We had an amazing day and we can’t thank you enough for everything, the preparation, skype calls, conference calls, emails, meeting up, driving us around to venues, the build up and the actual day. You were there for us at every step.   We wish you all the best with everything. Love Caro and Eddie

Caro & Eddie (UK) - Holden Manz

Dear Kirsty,
Just wanted to send you an email to thank you again for everything you did to ensure our wedding went smoothly.
Everyone is still talking about it and we are so thankful and blessed things turned out as well as they did.
The beach set up, the flowers, the champagne, the photographs which were so so nice and the reception we received at Africa Cafe was really unreal – we were like are they really whistling and screaming for us?
Really, you did a professional job coordinating everything and we thank you again and again.
I’ll be telling all my lady friends to get married in Cape Town!Nelly and Chuck Speed

To our darling Kirst,  Thank you for making our dreams come true today.  Your kindness, sense of calm, enthusiasm, reassurance and passion has astounded us.  We are so grateful to you and thank you for this incredible celebration that we and our families will treasure forever.   All our love,  Em & Rich  Xxx

Dear Kirsty,

I wanted to thank you for all your help and support that you provided both Andrew and myself but mostly myself in the lead up and on the day of our wedding!  As I mentioned to you on the phone the week after our wedding, the attention to detail and you simply dealing with everything that was thrown your way very calmly in the background was fantastic.  We all know that a few curve balls where part of the day, but at no point did I feel any of the stresses that you personally must have felt that day!   Whilst you dealt with all the various elements incredibly well you also managed to add a fantastic romantic touch to all our little requests.  The hanging of the hearts in the tree in the garden along with the words and the messages was a beautiful touch.  Having you there on our day was so calming and an incredible comfort to me.  I remember very clearly you walking up to the manor house first thing that morning, with the biggest smile on your face and a sense of complete control of what had to be achieved that day.  I believe that you being on the ball and in “event mode” allowed me to be relaxed and truly enjoy the build up of our day.  That was the biggest concern of mine, was how I would let go of event organising when that is what I do every day of my life.

Of all the people in the world who know me best, both my mom and Andrew thought you were an angel in disguise and completely appreciate all that you did for us.  I feel that we have made a friend in you and I do honestly hope to be able to recommend you to any of my friends or colleagues and hope to send future business your way.

Once again Thank you for being part of our special day and for adding in all the personal touches that you did.

With Kind Regards Mikaela Donkersloot Head of Hospitality  Wembley Stadium

OMG love, love, love!!! I am so pleased with them not only because Greg does such an amazing job but because of everything you did behind the scenes to make sure they looked this way!

I can’t thank you enough for making our trip to Cape Town and our wedding in South Africa the most amazing experience ever. Our wedding was absolutely everything we wanted it to be, we wouldn’t have changed a thing! I hate to use the term vendors because after meeting everyone they were more like friends but you really have the best “vendors” from photography, videography,  makeup, and of course our minister Patrick that I feel so fortunate that we had you as our wedding planner. You made this process so stress free and were so great at communicating and finding exactly what I was looking for.

Ryan and I both said we don’t think we will have as nice as a vacation for the rest of our lives, but will keep trying of course 🙂  Thanks for everything!! Amanda

Dear Kirsty, thank you for all your invaluable help, the wedding was amazing and everyone has only wonderful things to say about it and you….. Hope to see you soon, will miss all our chats! Adele Berry (mother of the groom) Dearest Kirsty, I will never be able to thank you enough for all the hard work you put into our wedding – it was PERFECT because of you!  Thank you, thank you!  Garrick & Kate xxx

Hi Kirsty,

Hope you are well and my mail finds you well. I don’t quite thank I have the words to express the gratitude I have for helping put together the most memorable time of our lives so far. From the moment we started putting the pieces together the suggestions you put on the table made it extremely easy to make a decision.

The attention to detail and the ceremony was best expressed by the amazed faces as we all walked in, the tears of joy during the ceremony and the joyful sorrow as we all walked out to leave such a beautiful location. Naina and I just wanted to be left there alone for a while and take it all in. Thank you for choosing Patrick as our marriage officer, he made such a difference on this day with his carefully chosen wise words of wisdom. Please pass our regards to him and the rest of your team.

I truly want to thank you for everything Kirsty, you will be in our lives forever and we will definitely be regular visitors to Cape Town and hope we will see you each time. Kind regards,   Abdi & Naina

Dearest Kirsty!  Makura and I wanted to write you personally to express our gratitude for your making our wedding day one which we, our families and friends will remember for a life time.  Selecting a wedding coordinator from miles away and via internet can be an unsettling and daunting task – to say the least.  From the very beginning of our destination wedding process, you managed to put us both at ease with your professionalism, your attention to detail, and your promptness – and this was without us having met!  I was most grateful for your honoring the intimate and loving atmosphere we wanted to create as a result of your suggesting venues, an officiant, and vendors who were capable of providing services to our specifications.  When I flew to Cape Town to meet you, to visit our venue of choice, and to speak with vendors, I knew that Makura and I had found the person who would assist us in capturing the essence of our relationship, our love, and the type of people we are.   On a personal note, I still remember your kind words on my wedding day when I was bundle of nerves.  Those were the words, not only of a wedding coordinator, but of a generous human being who understands that love and marriage are still indeed sacred.   You should know that we are still reliving our wedding day, and I trust that we’ll continue to do so for a very long time.  Our families and friends are still singing praises as a result of the beautiful affair we had.  Makura and I believe that our amazing and memorable wedding day is indicative of the wonderful life we are committed to share together. You are absolutely wonderful, and we are so thankful to you for helping us to start our life together on such a high note.  Please know that we are open to talk to couples who are exploring the option of using Weddings out of Africa.  Wishing you all the best,   Tracey & Makura

Dearest Kirsty,   this note is to say a huge THANK YOU for what was easily the best day of our lives! It was 43 degrees (and I think that was in the shade!), but you completely kept your cool and ensured that everything went off so smoothly (your smiling face holding our bouquets at the top of the drive was the perfect start!). The beautiful wine farm that you suggested for our wedding, Molenvliet, was even more stunning on the day than I could have imagined and every little detail that we’d thought of and discussed came together so perfectly on the day. I can honestly say I would not have changed a thing!  I’d also like to thank you for all the excellent suggestions you made re catering, florists, music etc.   The list of things that Alex and I have been looking back at and commenting on so happily for the past 3 weeks could go and on, so thank you for everything and for the really wonderful memories!  Lots of love,  Nicole & Alex Kovach x

Nicole & Alex (United Kindom) - Molenvliet

I don’t think we properly thanked you for the outstanding work on our behalf.  How you pulled such a memorable day together with only 3 days notice was truly astounding!  The enormity of it has blown all our friends back home away, who can see that we made the absolutely right decision despite their absence.  We wanted something special and a bit different, you simply couldn’t have delivered any better.

We are both so pleased that we met you, well done and many thanks, Adam.xx

Ps . You are a spreader of happiness Kirsty !!!

Adam & Tam (United Kingdom) - Llandudno, Cape Town

Kirsty made our wedding from start to finish and we couldn’t have even dreamed of such an amazing day without her hard work and knowledge! Thank you so much! During all the tough times what with having a new baby who took up all our time, Kirsty was the one to direct us along the right path for our special day by giving us all her inside knowledge and contacts and supervising the whole affair while we sat back and went with the ride! La Residence was a truly spectacular venue and the staff and vibe there was out of this world, so professional and so splendid. Nothing can ever compete with those 3 perfect days spent staying there with all the family and we hold these memories close to our hearts forever.

Thank you Kirsty.  Heather and Danny xx
