Pippa – Wildeflower: “Kate is remarkable. I have worked as a florist in Durban, Cape Town and now the Garden Route and have worked with countless planners on over 200 weddings. I can confidently say that Kate has been the best planner I have ever had the privilege of working with. She is organized, friendly, brilliantly creative and a genuinely wonderful person to have by your side while you are planning your special day. You don’t have to think twice about it, you will only be completely grateful for having her beside you and blown away by her professionalism and the effortless manner in which your event will come together.”

Obbie & Azuka Alintah: “We literally had the wedding of our dreams thanks to Kate. Her dedication, creativity and general passion for what she does is truly inspiring. We will never be able to thank her enough for all the effort that was put in despite airline strikes, visa issues and African timing trying to stop us. Lol. We look forward to working with Bash again. Baby shower perhaps?”

I adore working with her and know that every event she contracts us in for will be of the highest quality and a pure delight to be part of.

Yolandé Marx – Photographer: “As a wedding photographer, I get to work with so many different service providers in the industry. When I get the opportunity to work with Kate I know that the process of getting all the information I need about the timeline and the events of the day will be seamless. She really stands apart from the rest with her timeous responses, prompt payments and everything else admin related to make the lives easier of every other service provider involved in the wedding. I also often have the loveliest behind the scenes photos of her working to make the couple’s day extra special. She has a way of dealing with the family members that is so comforting and I can see how she completely eases them into what can sometimes be a stressful day emotions running high.
