Getting married of course is a daunting logistical challenge, and the idea of taking the big step in a foreign country seems like even more of a stretch….How wrong we thankfully were!
From the moment we contacted Sally with our rather vague enquiry, fears quickly evaporated as we were guided and practically assisted with putting all necessary arrangements in place – from identifying the perfect venue, arranging for hair and makeup, planning an after wedding dinner, arranging for (stunning) professional photography and, of course, getting the right paperwork done.
The day itself went like clockwork and Andred, who performed the ceremony, played a perfect role- putting us at ease and pulling on our heart strings with perfect words for the occasion.
Have no fear in engaging Weddings Abroad, we have no qualms in recommending Sally and her team wholeheartedly and without reservation for coordinating your own special big day!!Alejandra & Aaron Nicholas
Weddings Abroad/Gay weddings Abroad are a highly recommended and reputable company.
As we are sure most people can expect- organising a wedding abroad in a country you have never visited can be an extremely daunting process. We can honestly say that had we have known then what we know now, we had no reason for concern.
Sally was extremely attentive from day 1 and
captured every single detail asked for and more, the whole experience was one we will never forget.
Over the year we spent organising our wedding with Sally she made us feel comfortable and confident that she would capture our connection in her photography. Sally showed the bond we share in every single photograph and these are memories we will cherish forever.
We can honestly say that we not only found a magnificent wedding planner in Sally Haines but a friend we will treasure forever.
Thank you so much for everything Sal .
I’m writing this review with so much pride right now…
We met Sally in June 2017 just to discuss possible venues for our wedding. We left that meeting with endless possibilities and so much options. We started planning our wedding from September and we approached Sally and went for the Beach packaged. From there on this wedding was literally planned via emails, WhatsApp messages and telephone calls as we are situated in the Northern Cape.
We met up with Sally again 2 days before our wedding in May 2018 and all was ready and in place to say “I do”…. All our arrangements & requirements was met and our day was so beautiful I could not have asked for better.
I highly recommend Sally as a wedding planner to all. She takes a personal journey with you to make your day very special.
Sally thank you to you and your team, Lots of Love Theron couple.Marilize and Hugo
This not only a review for the sake of it, but truly a note of thank you to Sally and her team for making this a truly memorable occasion. Just the way we wanted it.
To the smallest of detail and going the extra mile they did make this very specific yet simple wedding everything we wanted it to be and more! The location, timing and ease of process was fantastic!
Thank you!Celeste du Plessis
Words cannot describe the wedding that we had on 20th April 2018 thanks to Sally, Kathy, Andred and Ben at Weddings Abroad. We discovered Sally online whilst searching for wedding planners in South Africa who help couples from abroad. Every step of the process was easy and fluid. When Sally could not be there on the day, Kathy stepped in and met us at our hotel with Andred two days before as agreed. This meeting put any worries aside and we could look forward to our day knowing we were in great hands.
The wedding day itself was incredible. The location, the views, the evening meal at Pigalles. They even ordered the sunshine for us at the top of Table Mountain! What a stunning location to get married. We’d recommend it for sure!
We cannot thank Sally and her team enough for making our day as special as it was. We would recommend them to anyone thinking of booking their wedding in South Africa. If we could relive the day again we would.
Keep doing what you do. Best wishes for the future. We can’t wait to come back and visit for a wedding anniversary in years to come.Laura & Jason
Our wedding experience with Sally and her team was more than wonderful. The whole process felt easy, fluid and unstressful from the very beginning. Because of Sally’s ability to be clear, adaptable, humoristic and progressive we could just sail along and enjoy the fun parts of preparing for a wedding. The wedding day with ceremony and marriage officer Alison, flowers, cake, champagne and small “surprises” was way better than we could ever imagine. Even Michael, the driver, gave us a lovely impression.
Thank you so much for everything ❤Lina & Linnea
Our wedding in Feb 2019 on table mountain was truly amazing. Sally listened to exactly what we wanted, which was super low key and casual, but also encouraged and helped us along the way with her suggestions, which we are so grateful for. The whole day was perfect for us, we look back smiling and wanting to do it all over again 🙂
Thank you for helping create our beautiful and memorable wedding day x
