South Event Specialists is owned and run by me, Katrien, and I am an avid list maker, seriously social wine enjoyer, lover of all things food and just all-round happy person. I run the London side of things and I have a stunning team on the ground in South Africa that supports me in all things destination weddings from site visits through to on-the-coordination.
