KIND WORDS 

Where do I even begin 

This is me on my wedding day, really one of the happiest days of my life, so cliche I know. But honestly, when I look at this picture I know I had my favorite food for our reception lunch and it was a scorching day so no amount of makeup was going to stop me from getting tanned.

My face was sore from smiling and my feet sore from dancing and as we arrived at the beach for our couples shoot all they wanted to be was in the cold Atlantic seawater. At this moment all my emotions came running forth and I just let go and had fun.

 

These are moments that no one can ever take away from me and its moments like these I aim to give every couple on their wedding day from beginning to end.

 

Below are some of my incredible past clients that I have had the honor of working with and I would happily plan their weddings again in a heartbeat x

Australia

Planning a destination wedding in Cape Town all the way from Sydney, Australia was always going to be challenging but Jadee and the Watermelon Team made it such a seamless easy experience.

The Watermelon team were able to bring all of our wedding dreams and ideas to life – delivering a wedding that was beyond our wildest dreams. Our guests had a once in a lifetime experience with every last detail taken care of by the fabulous Watermelon team.

 

Whether it was a last minute request for hair and makeup services or additional dietary requirements Jadee and her team were more than happy to lend a helping hand.

 

Without Jadee and the Watermelon team we would have never been able to plan such a beautiful and amazing wedding experience!

Thanks again for giving us the wedding only dreams are made of.

Thank you so much for all the hard work and the long hours spent making our day even more special for us and our guests. It was more that we had imagined it would be and our vision was carried through all the elements on the day. 

 

Your lovely touches and attention to detail were well received by all our guests.  Most guests said it was one of the most fun, beautiful and thoughtful wedding they had ever been to, where they were well looked after and always entertained. 

 

Continue the excellent work and wishing you all the success.

Cape Town

Finding Jadee at the watermelon co was truly a blessing.

Planning my wedding was so overwhelming until I met her. From turning my ideas into reality as well as adding much needed input from a professional such as herself made planning fun and exciting.

Her passion for her job was truly present in every aspect leading to the day. People always told me the day comes and goes so quickly, that may have been true for those who didn't have Jadee and her team looking over everything making sure every detail was perfect, gave me the time to sit, relax and enjoy the celebrations like a guest at my own wedding!

I can't thank you enough Jadee for turning my dreams into reality.

Thank you thank you thank you xx

 Wow Jadee where do I start?

I can’t Thank You enough for being by my side during this journey.

Not only were you my WEDDING PLANNER these past 8 months but you were also there for me while my Dad was in and out of hospital even if it was to share kind words.

You went above and beyond for Sandro and I to get our perfect day, all I wanted was to enjoy the night and I definitely did with no worries at all because You and Your Team were there!!

You are Amazing in all that you do!!! Compassionate, Kind, caring, Creative and Hard working would be some of the words I would use to describe You. 

Thank You soooo much xx

Kenya

Ali and I are Indian Kenyans with big, demanding families and friends who have been to some of the best places and done some of the most spectacular things in the world.

Cape Town was our dream destination for our wedding but planning it from Kenya, within our budget, simultaneously trying to incorporate all the amazing food, drink and decor seemed impossible!

Then we met Jadee on Skype!

What a stroke of luck that was!

Jadee along with her team took our ideas, literally from our thoughts and words, and made them into the most incredible experiences of our lives!

From an Indian Mendhi to a Nikah ceremony followed by a 5 course wine paired meal at the reception - every single bit of it was detailed and extraordinary!

Well done on taking on a BIG FAT INDIAN WEDDING IN CAPE TOWN Watermelon team and making it such an amazing event, that all of our family and friends (including those who didn't attend) are still talking about it!

You have become a very close friend Jadee! Much love and our deepest gratitude always Ali and Rehanna
