Cara was our super power

Every wedding needs a superpower to make it exceptional. You Cara were our superpower.

We recently experienced a very special wedding weekend that we will remember forever. And you made it happen. You guided us, introducing us to exciting concepts using your ample experience, you nudged us to ‘the do’s’ you know work and steered us away from ‘the don’ts’ that would waste us time, energy and money.  You pulled all the elements together, ensured everything was communicated to us clearly and in good time, encouraged our mother/daughter creativity to flow, reigned us in when we started chasing butterflies and ensured all our chosen vendors were laser focussed on excelling in the unique role each played in creating the fairytale wedding of Jenna & Adam’s dreams. And you did all of this without ever raising your voice or uttering cross word.

We have the utmost respect for you as a wedding planner but also as a special human being who went out of her way to make every element of this wedding exceptional. Everyone at the wedding ooh’d and aah’d and many said it was the best wedding they had ever been to. We humbly agree. You most definitely deserve the title of Best In The Business, awarded to you by many suppliers who regard you as the most savvy, most reliable, most hardworking and most professional WP in the industry.

Thank you for absolutely everything you have done for us. It’s remarkable how you kept a clear cool head through it all even when we asked the same question multiple times, were late in completing lists, lists and more lists and changed our mind more than a few times. You are the absolute go-to for anyone wanting an outstanding wedding or event.

It’s going to be strange not to see your name popping up in our inboxes but we hope you’ll stay in touch. We’ll continue to stalk you on instagram and see what wedding masterpieces you are creating. Much love to you!

Jenna, Adam and Terri

Cara gave us great peace of mind

Cara did an amazing job as our wedding planner for our Franschhoek wedding. All of our coordination and planning was done remotely from the UK, and Cara gave us great peace of mind through her high levels of efficiency, deep experience and wide network of high quality service providers and vendors.

Cara was always available to us and gave clear, detailed responses to any of our many questions or asks relating to different service providers, how things are normally done and general advice. This made it incredibly easy for us to make informed and fast decisions in planning, while ensuring that our stress levels were minimised. There probably isn’t a more connected and informed wedding planner in the Cape Winelands region, who knows all the venues in great detail, as well as what works well and what doesn’t.

Cara was also always on top of when decisions needed to be made and by when, ensuring that we got all the service providers booked in time, as well as keeping us up to date if any information was needed from us or decisions needed to be made. She really streamlined the process for us as our point of contact to our vendors. She would also provide reminders on decisions that needed to be made in case we let things slip as we got distracted with normal life.

In the week before our wedding which could have been stressful, she gave us updates on the weather and was proactive at highlighting options for a tent for our outside dancefloor, and was very flexible and efficient at getting a 48 hour request for umbrellas across the line in time for the day.

On the day, she was always on top of all the details and ensured we didn’t have to worry about anything on the day. Working with Cara was a great experience, and we could not recommend her more highly.

Eric and Cait

Would recommend, 10/10!

Best. Wedding. Planner. Ever.
We got married at Molenvliet Vineyard in Stellenbosch. We planned our wedding from overseas, so it was very important to us to have someone experienced on the ground who knows the suppliers and venue. Cara took away all stress of communicating with suppliers, and played a large role in advising us on all aspects of the wedding. Eventually our wedding turned out more than perfect!! Cara is very experienced, and knows what she’s doing. She listens to her clients wishes and makes sure everything goes smoothly before the day, and on the day itself. Would recommend, 10/10!

Cam and Manou

She was our wonder woman

We asked Cara to be our wedding planner and it was definitely the best decision of our wedding. Cara is SUPER organized, flexible, patient, direct, executes, and has connections to any vendor under the sun. If you’re planning a wedding in South Africa, you would be silly not to include Cara. She was our wonder woman who made all of our dreams come true & then some. We greatly appreciate everything you did for us & hope everyone has the chance to partner with you for their special day. Thanks a million, Cara!!!!

Anika and Sunny

I wouldn’t change a thing about our wedding day

As International guests when looking for a wedding planner, we wanted someone that could guide us on suppliers, how much things should cost, how the wedding day should flow, how we could make the most of the venue and be there on the day to manage everything so we could enjoy it without having to worry/think about a thing. Unfortunately the wedding planner we initially chose, could not do this for us but thank God we met Cara, 2 weeks before our wedding and she took control of everything, she took on all the stress, she helped us make decisions, she arranged back to back calls with suppliers until we were happy, she brainstormed ideas with us and ultimately made it fun – exactly what it should be. I wouldn’t change a thing about our wedding day, but I certainly wish we met Cara sooner! Thank you so much for helping us deliver the wedding of our dreams. It was just perfect.

David and Natalie

Our wedding was entirely perfect!

Cara is possibly the best thing to have happened to our wedding. As an international client and another Covid postponement she was stuck with us for 2 years longer than originally thought but she was professional and committed throughout. She is incredibly good at her job; efficient, reliable and hard working. She not only recommended high quality suppliers but answered any questions we had (and it was a lot) so quickly and thoroughly we knew we were in safe hands. On the day of the wedding my bridesmaids commented on how relaxed I was and that was purely down to trusting Cara entirely. She was always one step ahead of anything we needed and offered advice on many different things, when asked, without being in any way overbearing. She also went above and beyond anything we expected including meeting a few days before with some products we needed to source for the guests. We would thoroughly recommend Cara for any wedding planning you might need as our wedding was everything we had pictured and was entirely perfect. Thank you Cara!

Helen and Jamie

Everything was handled with absolute calm efficiency.

Thank you for being BRILLIANT! We are so very grateful for everything you did to make Frances and Miguel’s Wedding the happiest and most beautiful day! We had rain, and I am sure there were many other issues both before and during the event that caused much stress and anxiety, but you were superb and never missed a beat! Everything was handled with absolute calm efficiency, including steaming the Wedding dress!!

We loved the advice and support you gave Frances and Miguel with the planning. Everything looked absolutely beautiful, from the furniture, carpets, lights, music and of course Rowenna’s stunning flowers. What a team!! Thank you so much for your incredible efficiency and superb attention to detail. So many people commented as to how perfectly the afternoon and evening were organised. I don’t know how you do it… but you are AMAZING! Thank you too to your assistant. She was there very late making sure everything was going smoothly and attending to all our needs. Thank you for organising a SUPER SPECIAL Wedding, the happiest and most magical day! We wish you a well earned rest very soon!

Anne & Shane Barker, Frances & Miguel and the Da Costa Family

Everything was spectacular and you executed beyond our wildest dreams.

We can’t thank you enough for the amazing 2 day celebrations! Everything was spectacular and you executed beyond our wildest dreams. We had sooo much fun that we didn’t bother to eat for both days lol! We just enjoyed the space and danced all night. Truly unforgettable and we’re excited to do it again in 10 years – Hahahahaha!

The wedding was everything we wished for and more! Thank you!

We have already recommended your services to friends who are considering Cape Town as a wedding destination.

Maputi & Toni

Cara gifted us with the most beautiful time as we could just enjoy the day without having to worry about a thing.

Planning a wedding is not easy – planning a wedding during times of covid might sound like an absolute nightmare. Well, not when you have Cara as your wedding planner. From the moment we started working with Cara in 2019, and throughout the whole journey of postponing our wedding by one year and finally spending the best day of our life’s in November 2021, Cara made the whole process and experience so much fun and very enjoyable.

There are so many things we would do again exactly the same way but hiring Cara was by far the best decision we have made. Working with her felt as if our special day was the most important thing to her as well, she made sure she completely understood our wishes and preferences and managed the whole process in a way that even Covid times did not cause us much stress. Our wedding day was absolutely magical, we had the best vendors handpicked and recommended by her and Cara gifted us with the most beautiful time as we could just enjoy the day with our closest family and friends without having to worry about a thing. It’s almost a pity you only get married once in your life 😇 because I would trust Cara over and over again as her work is true magic and we had so much fun along the process. Thank you for everything Cara – you are amazing.

Sina & Brent

Cara is an absolute master at her craft and our perfect day was just that because of her.

We could not recommend Cara more! Not only did she make moving our entire wedding to a year later the easiest thing ever done, but she made the entire process of planning our wedding absolutely effortless, easy, calm and fun.

Cara is an absolute master at her craft and our perfect day was just that because of her. She helped make important decisions (often making the decisions for me) and thought of absolutely everything, going above and beyond any expectation we might have had. She was always willing to help with anything wherever she could. I honestly did not feel like I had to organise a thing because Cara was already on it! Our guests had the best time, Cara had everything organized and under control constantly and I could not thank her enough. If I could give 10 stars I would! Thank you again Cara!

Alex & Jordyn

If you ran the world, it would definitely run better!

I cannot recommend Cara highly enough. We had one of those many-postponed Covid weddings, and Cara had 3 very challenging wedding attempts to plan in this time! Throughout 2 failed attempts, and our recent successful one, she was always calm, uber-efficient, professional and kind. She has great initiative and has an amazing supplier network who all excel at what they do, and what’s more, with a great attitude. Our actual wedding in January 2022 was joyous, beautiful and run to perfection. Thank you Cara! If you ran the world, it would definitely run better!

Nicole and Chris

Our day was truly effortless with her by our side

Cara was the best thing that happened to us while planning our Covid wedding. We started planning our wedding pre-covid and then had to postpone by a year and none of it would have been possible without Cara. She helped us through every tough decision and celebrated with us through every victory.

She further works with the most phenomenal service providers and our day was truly effortless with her by our side. She goes to the ends of the earth for her clients and is always there for every need. Thank you Cara – you are a true champ!

Roxanne & Divan

I learnt more in the first meeting I had with Cara than in all the research I had been doing for weeks.

My husband and I live in Canada and we decided to get married in Cape Town because of how much we love the city. Originally, I did not plan to hire a wedding planner but after two weeks of trying to communicate with vendors in different time zones and not understanding how the wedding industry runs there, I decided to hire someone. It was the best decision I ever made.

I learnt more in the first meeting I had with Cara than in all the research I had been doing for weeks. Cara made the process so easy, we told her what we were looking for in a venue and she was able to list off venues from the top of her head that would be suitable for us! In the months leading up to the wedding Cara guided me through everything that needed to be done.

At one point in time I emailed her saying “I’m worried that I am not stressed, it must mean that I am forgetting something.” Nope, she was just that on top of everything. In some areas I was very decisive and she was able to find vendors that met my specific requirements. In most cases I was very indecisive, which I hear makes things harder for the wedding planner and vendor’s. Cara was somehow able to understand what I wanted and made it happen! Throughout the planning process I changed my mind about things multiple times and Cara handled it with ease, never once did I feel she was frustrated with my indecisiveness.

She was very good with advising me vendors to hire and not hire, she advised me well in which area’s of the wedding I should spend money on, and which area’s were not necessary to put money into. On the day of the wedding, Cara made everything run soo smoothly. I remember the night before the wedding my mom asked when I was getting all the flowers, I said “I actually have no idea,” but someone just showed up at my house the morning of the wedding to deliver them, good thing Cara had a plan!

When I walked into the venue the day of the wedding I was in awe, it was more than I could have ever asked for. Everything was perfect and looked stunning! She also made sure the wedding ran on time by queing the DJ, wedding party and venue staff when to play the music, walk down the aisle and serve the food.

I am not exaggerating when I say I did not worry about a thing the day of the wedding. I was able to be fully present with my husband and guests and enjoy the whole day! Thank you so much again, I will never forget what you did for us. We still are still receiving comments about how much fun the wedding was and how it was so perfect, thank you for making it all happen.

I 100% recommend Cara to plan one of the most important days of your life! You will not regret the investment.

Amanda & Tawanda

Your patience & commitment to executing the vision of excellence we both desired was immeasurably valued.

After a whirlwind of cross continental wedding planning, a perfect wedding, and a perfect honeymoon (seriously!), Olumide and I are still on the high of life and settling into our lives well this week. With the utmost sincerity, please accept our tremendous gratitude for your excellent service as Wedding Coordinator. The months of communicating back and forth about every detail were well worth it! You were an absolute delight to work with, and your patience and commitment to executing the vision of excellence Olumide and I both desired was immeasurably valued. Sincerely, THANK YOU!

It’s our hope you too enjoyed a wonderful time in celebration! Indeed, your participation was a delight.

Also, thanks for the lovely posts on Instagram. The admiration of how well things came together is renewed with every picture.

Elice & Olumide

You translated all our crazy ideas and made them come to life.

I can’t actually believe it’s already over 2 weeks since you made our dream wedding come true. We have both been on a massive come down and missing all the wedding prep fun.

We both want to say such a massive thank you. We knew straight away that you were the person for the job, on that first Skype and man did you deliver. Not only did you set us up with the most amazing team of professionals who did the most amazing job of bringing together the vision we had for our wedding, but you translated all our crazy ideas and made them come to life. I felt so confident leaving our wedding in your hands on the day and didn’t worry once, even when changes had to be made due to the weather. Everything was so beautiful on the day and everyone said it was the best wedding they had ever been to. For such a small wedding that makes me so happy, I was worried we wouldn’t have enough atmosphere, but in the end it was brilliant, the flowers and decor and lighting really set the atmosphere up. You and Rowenna did a fabulous job.

You must hear this a lot, but it was like working with a friend by the end. We always felt like we were your only couple, no matter how busy you were with all your other weddings. You always replied promptly, even when you’d had a wedding on or should have been off on a weekend.

You are most definitely the best in the business and were our wedding fairy! When we renew our vows in 10 years we will be in touch for your services again and will definitely be recommending you to anyone we know who gets married in the gorgeous Cape!

We really can’t thank you enough for making our day magical.

Ally & Grant

No request was ever too much for you, not even finding a last minute songstress for the cocktail hour!

Thank you so much for all the hard work you put into making our wedding day the most spectacular day we could have ever imagined. You were always quick to respond to our millions of emails, and no request was ever too much for you – not even finding a last minute songstress for the cocktail hour!

Thank you for only bringing us the best of the best in terms of suppliers, and helping to pull everything together so beautifully. Our wedding day was a balance of the both of us, a family feast and Hermanus-style elegant and classic, everything we could ever dream of and more – and this was all thanks to you!

While you are not in the “repeat business industry”, and most of our friends are already married, we will never hesitate to recommend your services, especially once the three younger Tredoux sisters get there… You are without a doubt an absolute highlight of our wedding day planning!

We wish you all the best – both personally and for your business, and we believe you’ll grow from strength to strength due to your hard work and exceptional client service.

Jurgen & Lara

It may be your job, but you truly made us feel as though we where the only couple in the world and that our day was the most important thing ever to you.

It already feels nostalgic typing your email address today. Something I’ve missed from day one of getting back to UK. No more fun updates in my inbox about a magical day that was being so perfectly created by you, meticulously and with so much care and precision that it turned out to be beyond anything our dreams could have ever imagined.

It may be your job, but you truly made us feel as though we where the only couple in the world and that our day was the most important thing ever to you. You where an absolute wedding angel and we will never be able to truly convey how special you have become to us through this experience. You played the biggest role in giving us the most wonderful day of our lives! For that we are eternally grateful and will never ever forget your kindness, hard work & most importantly, that you treated us as friends. We certainly count you as a dear one.

I truly don’t know how we could have organised a day half as special without Cara of The Mosaic Wedding Company. She made what is normally quite a stressful process, totally effortless. Despite having countless weddings to plan simultaneously, she always made us feel so special, as though we were having a royal wedding. Cara managed to decipher all of my jumbled ideas and make the reality ten times better. She was so professional and got every aspect organised to perfection in record time whilst maintaining the calmest and friendliest of demeanours. We were lucky beyond words to have her with us on the wedding journey, and still today as a friend.

Sam & Sandrine

Despite having to work with 3 time zones between SA & USA you were always responsive and willing to Skype or get on a call whenever we felt the need.

When we met you for the first time in a coffee shop in Constantia, I was confident that you would be the one to make my daughter & son in-law’s dream wedding a reality. Unlike the other wedding planner we had interviewed, you came armed & ready with your computer, asking tons of important questions which you directed at Tamsyn.

Despite having to work with 3 time zones between SA & USA you were always responsive and willing to Skype or get onto call whenever we felt the need. You removed the stress from our shoulders and really enjoyed the magic of our daughter’s wedding!

Words can never say THANK YOU enough and THANK YOU does not come anywhere near expressing the gratitude we feel in our hearts.

We will always be happy to be a reference for you and we wish you every success as you continue to make more couples wedding days as special as you made it for all of us! Thanks a million!

Tracy & Ivor – parents of the couple

We can truly say that we were absolutely blown away on the day!

I think we were sold from the moment we saw that you had experience working with many international clients. The fact that you were from the best city in the world and you were Italian really appealed to us too, you know how us Italians are… pure CRAZY! After a brief Skype call we knew we were in very capable hands.

Cara, working with you has been amazing! You took absolutely all the stress out of the planning for us, you knew what needed to be done and by when, even when we needed some pushing (as we were over hearing the word ‘wedding’ in some weeks). You totally understood our vibe and style that we wanted for the day even after confusing you with our elaborate inarticulate descriptions and continuous change of minds. You calmed all our fears when we used to send you millions of questions over the weekend and you even answered them within hours and sometimes minutes of sending them. You helped us prioritise what was important were always so professional, and your ability to multi-task on the day was very impressive.

What also made us really happy was knowing that you only worked with reliable & trustworthy vendors whom wouldn’t drop us at the last minute.

We can truly say that we were blown away by everything on the day… from the moment we walked into the chapel, to the decor in the reception hall, the food, the candy table, the lawn games… ALL OF IT

To date, we are still receiving compliments on what a perfect wedding it was. My mom, whom was hesitant that we hired a wedding planner in the first place (being the typical Italian mother who always wants to be in control), was so impressed on the day she couldn’t stop singing your praises! Our friends and family said it was the best wedding they have been to. Nothing went wrong (at least that we are aware of and, even if it did, you certainly never showed it or you just dealt with it so it never affected us). Our wedding day was just so pretty, elegant and for lack of better wording… it was just so ‘us’ & all around fabulous!!

It was the best money spent to use you as our wedding planner during this period of our lives! All that is left to say is, THANK YOU for helping us have the most incredible day with so many fabulous moments!

Bianca & Jeremy

What can I say really, our brilliant day was down to your brilliance.

The wedding was absolutely everything we could have hoped for and this is largely down to your significant role. I remember the first time we spoke, in fact from the first email – I had a great sense of confidence that we had found the right person to help us plan our day. I’m sure you deal with very different brides and personalities along this process, but I think what was key for me was that you took charge and ‘managed us’ brilliantly. As we were in the middle of creating and then having Riley – I didn’t have much head space to focus on the wedding, but still wanted it to be a really special day – so I’m really grateful that you were so patient and considerate of this.

In terms of the nuts and bolts of the day – the suppliers you recommended were all outstanding – I think a testament to your relationships with them and knowing what your clients need vs want. To us you have everything a really brilliant planner needs – an eye for the detail, a willingness to go out on a limb and a key set of suppliers you would happily recommend. What can I say really, our brilliant day was down to your brilliance.

A heartfelt thank you for everything.

Carmen & Matt

When I was in distress you somehow calmed me and turned our day into a magical fairytale!

How to put this in words – we simply cannot thank you enough for all that you did in the preparation and planning of our wedding, not to mention the support you gave on the day, when I was in distress you somehow calmed me and turned our day into a magical fairytale!

Thank you for all your advice with the suppliers, I think we realized in the end why you spend a little more to get the quality. Your attention to detail in preparation and kicking our butts with getting suppliers booked (what can I say) I feel sorry for being the pain in your ass the entire time.

I will definitely recommend you to others that seek assistance in wedding planning. Overall you did a fabulous job from the deepest of our hearts THANK YOU.

Natasha & Jamie

Truly the most amazing day thus far in my life

I didn’t feel like waiting for my thank you cards before saying this. Last Saturday was truly the most amazing day thus far in my life. Everything far exceeded all my expectations, of which you know I had many hahaha. People kept asking me how I could be so calm and all I had to say was I have an awesome wedding planner!

Best of all Mike loved everything too! So thank you so much for your help over the past year, responding so quickly to my endless emails and in bringing my ideas to reality.

Adele & Mike

You literally made our wedding day a dream come true!

A huge, huge thank you. You were absolutely amazing and made the whole experience of wedding planning so easy for us, even though we were doing it from Dubai. It never, ever felt difficult with you guiding us along the way. We love your personality and you made us feel so at ease and on top of everything at all times, and you literally made our wedding day a dream come true.

There isn’t one single thing we could fault and absolutely nothing negative to say. You were simply fantastic. Thank you again for everything. We wish we could do it again!

Tanya & Mark

If you were on Tripadvisor, we’d give you a 5-star rating!

You’ve done a fantastic job with our wedding and we can’t thank you enough!

It was such a relief to find someone of your ilk and caliber to do the hard work and give us some respite amidst a very harrowing 6 months entree to our wedding with both of us relocating and Karin’s job of 20 years with BP ending in early retirement just 7 days before the wedding!

It was not an easy wedding to orchestrate, but you did magnificently and we are so proud of our day and of what you accomplished on our behalf!

We could clearly see how much you loved your job and are totally convinced that no wedding should proceed without an excellent planner like yourself! If you were on Tripadvisor, we’d give you a 5-star rating *****!

Warmest regards and grateful thanks for all you did to make our day so special.

Karin & Carin

We knew we had the right person for the job!

We don’t know where to begin… Lee and I started planning our wedding a year before the big day. We always new we were going to get married in Cape Town, South Africa​,​ even though we lived overseas.

This was where Mosaic Weddings came in and thank goodness, after a brief Skype chat I new that we had the right person for the job. Cara was not only organised but made both of us feel involved in every decision​ that was​ made.

We wanted to plan every part of our wedding but once we started dealing with venues and having no communication for days on end (mostly due to internet connection​ overseas​) I decided to contact ​The ​Mosaic ​W​edding ​C​ompany. We were so impressed with Cara and the professional way in which she dealt with us even before we decided to work together.

Cara was available to answer every and all questions even on a Sunday evening. Our amazing day would not have been the same if it weren’t for the help and watchful eye of Cara. Our friends and family have said that it’s one of the best weddings they have been to too… And even when the wheels fell off Cara was there to pick up the pieces.

We feel like we have made a friend in Cara and ​w​e hope that one day ​her​ beautiful day is as stress free and enjoyable as ours was.

From the bottom of our hearts, Thank you.

Nadine & Lee

My only regret is that we don’t live in Cape Town where we could hire her for more family events.

Kurt and I got engaged and decided to host our wedding in his hometown, Cape Town. For me not knowing too much about the city as we live abroad, it was overwhelming. We searched the web and came down to 3 well-rated wedding planners and contacted them all. From our first meeting with Cara over skype, we knew right away that she was the one.

We felt so comfortable around her, she was very professional and above all, completely on top of her game!

I spoke to Cara as much as I did my family and frankly she became a new family member. It was such a pleasure to work with Cara and we really appreciated how quickly she would respond to our queries and attend to our requests.

When the big day arrived, I was an absolute stress pot! I could have been the poster child for Rescue Remedy (future brides take note – this stuff works!). Cara was an absolute pro!

Things always happen at weddings no matter how much you plan ahead. We had a couple “issues” that came up throughout the day. The best part of this? I did NOT know a single thing about any of these hiccups. Everything was handled behind the scenes so I could live my fairytale day – and I did! If there’s any reason to hire her, it is for that alone.

No amount of money could buy the stress free day I had! We had a beautiful and memorable wedding day that we will cherish forever.

Now, let’s talk vendors. Cara has worked in the industry for some time. She has exquisite taste and I am quite picky. She can direct you to the best vendors that offer the best value. This is an asset to couples from overseas that are missing this information. She knows who is trustworthy, has good service, is cost effective etc. She has greats instincts when it comes to design and will help realize your vision. She is also very mindful of your budget and she actually saved us money at our venue!

Overall, my husband and I could not have been more grateful for Cara’s expertise. Our wedding was beautiful and we just received the gorgeous photos and video to prove it! My only regret is that we don’t live in Cape Town where we could hire her for more family events.

Cara, thank you, thank you, thank you and we hope to see you again on our next visit to Cape Town.

Tobi & Kurt

Whenever you met with me I felt as if I was the only person you were dealing with… as if there were no other brides!

Cara! I only have amazing things to say about you. I have so many thank you’s to give. It was better than I ever imagined. I will definitely recommend you to every single bride to be that I come across.

Thank you for your patience, co operation, time and effort. I know you are really busy, but whenever you met with me I felt as if I was the only person you were dealing with… as if there were nooooo other brides.

All the best for the future, and may you bring many many woman the joys and happiness that you have brought me, on our special day!

Shaakirah & Miesh-Al

Thanks so much for your super efficiency, wonderful communication, incredible organisation

We can now see why Cara’s business is going from strength to strength! We had limited time to organise our wedding and after a simple breakfast meeting, Cara took control and played the major role in ensuring that our wedding was a success. She was able to recommend a suitable venue, make up artists, decor etc.

It all made it incredibly easy for us, and to be honest we don’t know why anybody would actually not enlist the services of a wedding planner! We were always kept updated on what needed to be paid when, when balances were due, reminded of what we still needed to arrange and ensure was in place to make the wedding a success. It all resulted in the wedding that we really wanted and Cara delivered!

It was fantastic to have Cara at the ceremony and reception, ensuring that everything was running on time and that everything was in place. On the day, we could both relax, safe in the knowledge that Cara was in control.

Cara thanks so much for your super efficiency, wonderful communication, incredible organisation and making our wedding day so special!

Kirsten & Brett

Her efficiency, dedication to detail and general passion for what she does made my wedding day the most perfect day

I have known Cara for years, you can almost say she is part of my family. But it was over the last year that I really got to know about her passion…. Weddings!!!

There are not enough words in the world to say thank you too you Cara!!!

When I first met with her I had an idea of what I wanted but couldn’t really put it into words… Cara guided me through every step and stage and suggested who to go to and what I could do. Whenever I had a query or a concern Cara was on it immediately.

Her efficiency, dedication to detail and general passion for what she does made my wedding day the most perfect day I could’ve imagined.

Cara, you are definitely doing what you are supposed to be doing and you are absolutely amazing at it.

Thank you for all your hard work, patience and support. You really are a star!

Hannah & Jacques

A carefree day for us to enjoy, thanks to Cara, every little detail of what I’d asked was taken care of.

I met Cara at one of the first wedding expos that I went to, long before I thought I’d need a wedding planner. She caught my eye due to the beautiful table she’d set and the pretty stationery at her exhibition stall. Her business card was also so catchy that I still have it today (the 5 tips for a bride).

I started planning my wedding by myself, but then contacted her when I couldn’t find a stationer that I felt could make the invitations that I had in mind. So, instead of just getting someone to do my invites, I ended up with a planner – and what a blessing that was!

Because I only hired Cara halfway through planning my wedding, I had already sourced many of the service providers, but Cara was always very professional and treated all of them with respect and got the results I wanted. (This is worth noting as not all service providers appreciate working with a planner, so I learnt). As for the service providers that she sourced, I can truly say that she works with the best of the best – like Liesl who made all our stationery just the way I wanted it, and better!

Thanks to Cara, my wedding was a carefree day for us to enjoy without worrying about any of the arrangements.
Cara simply handled any hiccups that arose during the course of the day and saw to it that every little detail of what I’d asked for was taken care of.

Cara, thank you for every bit of advice and help that you gave us! It wouldn’t have been the same without you.

Her comprehensive knowledge and experience in the wedding industry assured us that we were in great hands.

From the moment we met Cara, we knew that she was the perfect person to help us coordinate our wedding. Her friendly personality makes her wonderful to work with, while her comprehensive knowledge and experience in the wedding industry assured us that we were in great hands.

Cara organized everything from the decor and cupcakes to the set up and itinerary on the day, making sure that everything went off without a hitch. I would highly recommend her for your special day!

Having a wedding planner was not an expense we wanted, but my husband and I just couldn’t manage, Cara was completely worth it and more.

Cara started planning our wedding about 6 months prior to our wedding, so she had to pick up where we had left off. Cara did this with absolute ease, took over everything with such enthusiasm and without hesitation. She communicated with the venue who were not very easy to deal with as they took ages to respond.

If Cara was not able to give me answers to my questions immediately she would always respond to confirm she had received my email and would get back to me as soon as she had the answers which she did.

Cara is very organized and is always on top of everything and made me feel calm when thinking that things were not going to plan or that we were running behind. Our wedding day had bit of a drama with the weather being awful. We were suppose to get married on the beach but unfortunately the wind was so strong that it was just not possible. They had to move the ceremony inside the reception room and it looked amazing, Cara was there from the start to make sure that it was still a special occasion and it truly was, better than I imagined actually.

Cara was there throughout the reception and it all went to plan, when we decided to cut the cake a bit earlier and when we changed the first dance to a bit earlier she made it happen.
Not once did I feel stressed about anything. She had it all under control and I will recommend her to everyone.

I was absolutely happy with your assistance and would recommend you to everyone.

Very professional and friendly

Before meeting up with the Mosaic Wedding Company we had met up with a few other wedding planners but upon meeting Cara we knew she would be the right person to plan our special day. Not knowing where to start with the planning of our wedding, Cara came out to meet us and from the start was very professional and friendly. We immediately saw she knew what she was doing and decided to hire her.

She took control from the start and guided us as to what service providers to use and what to deal with first as we had no idea what to handle first. She was present at every meeting we had with service providers and on our wedding day she made sure everything ran smoothly and was very enthusiastic about her job. Thanks for putting our special day together Cara, the outcome of all your hard work was amazing!

Balance between professionalism and a personal touch

I am a corporate Event Coordinator and so I am used to being the one who makes the arrangements and implements them. Cara was really understanding and respectful of that.

When we first met with Cara our wedding plans were quite complicated. My fiancé and I had gone from planning a small destination wedding in Mauritius with an informal celebration back home to planning a much larger, more traditional wedding at home in Cape Town. We had spent hours, days, weeks and months working on our original plans and felt somewhat despondent when they changed.

Cara’s assistance came at the perfect time, she helped to pick up the pieces and got us excited about our new plans. Slowly but surely everything fell into place and our dream wedding came together like a puzzle. Once Cara got involved we could see the bigger picture and work towards it. Cara worked according to our budget and personal preferences, which was extremely helpful.

Cara’s involvement was supportive but not invasive, we never felt pressured to use a specific service provider or to agree with her suggestions. She allowed us to explore opportunities with a variety of service providers and to make informed decisions. She negotiated pricing and represented Grant and I in a way which gave us peace of mind and built trust.

Somehow Cara found the balance between professionalism and a personal touch, we felt like we were building a friendship and not only a mutually beneficial business relationship while working with her. Her passion and commitment to her work is highlighted in the quality of service that is provided.
