Meet your Wedding Planner: Cara Lee

Basically, I love weddings! I actually have a wedding file (which has now been taken over by my Pinterest board) which I have created for my future Legendary Wedding Day here in Cape Town, South Africa… some may find that weird, however, I want my wedding day to be perfect, just as much as you do. I have loved weddings all my life, they are just so romantic and as clichéd as it may sound, it is the first day of the rest of your life, and what a day it will be!

I am a 34 year old born and bred Capetonian. I started out in the wedding industry as a Professional Wedding Photographer in 2008. With each wedding that I photographed, I realized how much I loved being a part of my bride and groom’s special day,  (I also realized how many brides were in way over their heads and completely stressed out) and slowly but surely, I made my move into becoming a Professional Wedding Planner here in Cape Town.

I have been the proud owner of The Mosaic Wedding Company since 2011 and have planned many weddings since opening. Pop over to my compliments page to check out some of the happy clients that I have worked with.

I also recently launched another company with 3 friends, The Hire Haus, it is a beautiful company filled with beautiful hiring items for your wedding or event. I love merging The Mosaic Wedding Company and The Hire Haus when planning a wedding. 

If you decide to choose me to plan your wedding, please be assured that the utmost love and affection will go into every thought and moment spent planning YOUR Legendary Day.


A little bit about me 🙂

» I am a sucker for romance and love songs 
» My hair colour or hair style changes at least twice a year!
» I would 100% do absolutely anything for my friends.
» I have 14 tattoo’s. They all mean something very dear to me and I don’t regret any of them. Two of these include my grandparents names.
» I LOVE my family more than anything, and this includes my dog Maya.
» I fully believe in fate and timing – it’s how I met my boyfriend, Andy.
» Travelling overseas, sipping on a glass of red wine, reading in the sun & local weekends away are 4 of my favourite past times.
» I am inspired by life in general – positive & real people, laughter, dreaming of the unimaginable, feeling skinny on a fat day and love!

While a bride is getting her hair done and the groom is being photographed, Cara manages the day and everything that happens behind the scenes. 

She thinks it’s of the utmost importance that couples draw inspiration from other weddings, but that their own wedding still reflects who they are as a couple.
