Sjani and Tanya,

We wanted to thank you for creating such a magical wedding day for us. It could not have been more perfect. Dan and I wanted a stress free magical wedding planned by someone else so all we had to do was show up and you made all of our dreams come true. The whole day is engraved in our memories forever. We feel so fortunate to have had so little stress that we remember every moment. We shared so many stories while doing hair and makeup. You attended to Dan in his room to ensure he wasn’t bored. I remember your words as we left my room to head down the beach path “are you ready”? And that was the most surreal walk of my life. And the moment I saw Dan it took my breath away. You said, “take your time. Enjoy this moment”. It was perfect. All of you were present when necessary and seemed to disappear at just the right moments. Our wedding at Kilindi with Weddings on Zanzibar was beyond our imagination. Thank you for everything through the whole journey. We are forever grateful!

With love,
Stacey and Dan

Hi Sjani and Tanya,

We are happy to hear that you also found it to be a special day. For us it was the greatest day ever and a big part of it was thanks to you guys.

When we first contacted you it was only 3 weeks before the wedding. You manage to plan and organized the whole thing so quickly and on time. If we had any questions you responded quickly and also gave us advice how to proceed. You were very flexible. On the wedding day you took very good care of us and all parts around it. The music was perfect to the occasion and something we wouldn’t have chosen on our own but now is one of the great memories for us.

And forward a special thanks to Stanley, Robin and Grant, they were so professional!!

Many Thanks from now Mrs Sandra and Mr Tommy

Our day could not have been more perfect! We wanted a romantic yet simple wedding and that is exactly what we had. The day was completely magical and the support we had from everyone involved was amazing throughout the planning process and during the wedding itself.

Sjani, Tanya and the team made planning our special day incredibly easy and the day ran very smoothly from the moment we arrived at the hotel through to the amazing dinner set up on the beach for us. Every part of our day was absolutely perfect and we cannot thank you all enough. You all formed part of our day in some way and it would not have been the same without you.

Dear Sjani,

Enchanting and unforgettable… That is how we describe our

wedding day and we have you and your incredible team to thank

for that! Eloping from Australia seemed a little daunting but you

embraced every detail with professionalism, precision and

finesse…

At every juncture you provided invaluable guidance and direction.

You inspired our choice of venue, celebrant, photographer and

videographer, who were all so wonderful, not to mention the

beautiful Swahili jazz duo who escorted me across the sand. Your

coordination was seamless and created the simplicity that was

so important to us…

…but most of all you were our family on the day. I will always

remember that you thought to add three blue pins to secure the

bouquet ribbon so I had my ‘something blue’! You were the

custodian of a precious moment of our lives and will remain a

part of that forever.

With love and sincere thanks,

Hi Sjani and Tanya,

Thank you so much for your email. We’ve been meaning to write you for a while and I’m so sorry for the delay in doing this. And thank you, all is well and married life is amazing.

Since our wedding we have been talking a lot about it. It was, like most couples would say, the best day of our lives. It was everything we could have possibly dreamt of. However, we aren’t only saying that it was the best day of our lives, we also claim that we must have had the best wedding ever. It was perfect, it was so beautiful and it was so much fun and we have the two of you to thank for that.

Everything was perfectly planned, you really can tell that you have been doing this for a long time. Everything from the booking and the email communication up until we landed in Zanzibar and the wedding has been perfectly planned and executed. I was especially amazed how detailed you were and how much you remembered from our email conversations. Things I mentioned over a year ago you had documented and it felt like you really understood and cared about how we wanted our wedding. You were always in touch and always asking a lot of questions regarding our wedding which really made us feel confident in you as our wedding organizer- it was really professional. I know that I am/was not the usual bridezilla which is maybe why I appreciate it even more as you mentioned and organized so many things I hadn’t even thought of doing ( I was especially amused when you contacted me because you were worried as our file was the thinnest one out of the lot).

You two were able to meet all our requests, even though some of them were last minute, you had a plan for everything and you know what guests expect when attending a wedding. We are so pleased with all your hard work and, furthermore, our guests have told us that our wedding in Zanzibar is the best wedding they’ve ever attended.

We’re so grateful and I can go on how perfect everything was, but I’m not, so I’m just gonna say that everything, from start till end, was immaculate and you two were absolutely fantastic, I could never have wished for better wedding organizers and a better wedding! Thank you so much!!!

I hope everything is well with you two and I also hope that Father Charles has recovered (I saw on Facebook that he was ill). Please wish him all the best from us.

Sincerely,

Carina and Greg

Hi Sjani,

Yes, we made it home in one peice after a wonderful trip.

Thank you for the wonderful job you did planning our wedding – it was all we hoped it would be.

We were overall very happy with the plan you put together for us, and felt that it was a great day. We thought everything you did was really wonderful. We particularly enjoyed the duet and the set up for our dinner table.

Thanks again, and we’ll be in touch when we get the photos.

Planning a wedding in Africa felt a bit daunting to begin with, we weren’t sure whom to approach to try and find out if it was possible and how to go about organising it. When our resort put us in touch with Zanzibar weddings all our questions were answered and it felt as though we had someone organising our day who knew what questions to ask, what to organise for us and the things we would need to know. Zanzibar weddings sorted out all of the paper work for the certificate ensuring that the wedding would be complete on the day with no problems in issuing a marriage certificate. We were extremely happy and satisfied from the beginning through to the end – the wedding day – with Zanzibar weddings, we could not have asked for a better wedding planner or a more beautiful day! We can highly recommend Sjani and her team in planning any wedding – from anywhere in the world, nothing is beyond organising for them.

Dear Sjani and the rest of the team,

Thank you so much for making our day wonderful beyond anything we could ever have imagined!!!
Also, thank you so much for the patience you showed when we kept changing our minds and not always understanding what we were doing. Wedding planning is not easy and it’s not really our thing and we couldn’t have managed this without you and your team. I never imagined myself as a bride, but in the end, I really enjoyed myself. With the boat ride and a full moon, the experience was magical. The musicians in the boat did an excellent job and the music was fantastic. My father really enjoyed himself. And the dinner table was so beautiful!

Thank you again for all your help!

Hi Sjani & Tanya!
It is not easy for me to find the right words in english to share our thoughts about our wedding.

Some years ago we had a dream, to be married but “in a special way”. Not to be married as usual, as everyone is getting married here in Belgium. Our dream was to say yes to each other far away, on a beautiful white sandy beach with a lot of coconut trees.
3 years ago we went to Zanzibar for kiting, we felt in love with that authentic place, kind people and great weather (we have a story to tell about that… :-D).
It was not easy but we made it, with our friends and families, we materialized this dream.
Everything went perfectly and it was because of you !

Not easy to organize everything via e-mail but finally, it was like we wanted it to be. “Simple and beautiful”.
On the beach, kites in the background, sun and joy.

We can imagine how difficult it is to make everything going smooth in this country. This is the reason we contacted you. We realized quickly that you were essential to make that dream going true.
Each time we look at that movie, we think that it couldn’t be so perfect without your help !

Already when we exchanged e-mail, we were happy and in peace because we knew we will be in good hands.
Your website and all the pictures were really insipring for us !
Knowing everything will be dealed by you and your staff was oxygen for us :-)

When we think about the 30th… well, what to say… Hopefully again, you made everything to help us to realize our dream (getting married on the beach under the Zanzibarian sun) => plan a new date ! Impossible here in Belgium :-)
You made it, the following day, it was just perfect.

You were there for us, to keep us in peace in that difficult and stressful moments. You were the conductor that day, working “in the shadow” :-)
Again : the result was perfect !
We couldn’t expect a more beautiful day and organization.

Merci !

Kind regards for Belgium !

Hi Sjani & Tanya
We thought the organization of the event was excellent, everything seemed to go really smoothly and we appreciated having little to worry about leading up to and on the day itself. Due to the tide, the time of the ceremony had to be moved which was handled so well that it didn’t cause any stress at all and it was reassuring that everyone was proactive and positive about these changes. The set up itself of the arch and the chairs looked great and it photographed so well, too. The decorations and color details gave it all a very classy, yet casual/beach-y feel – exactly what we were looking for. I recommend the Jazz Duo as they really added a splash of fun to the event and made it feel very “local”. The photographer Andrew was excellent too. He really made sure that we get what we wanted, even though some of our requests were perhaps a bit unorthodox (posing with a goat as we walked through the village? check!). Our friends are still gushing over the wedding and how perfect it was!

Hi Sjani
I was actually putting together our wedding album last night, and was reliving the day. It was so lovely and so because of you. We couldn’t have done it without you.
Overall your services were spectacular, your attention to detail and organization were superb. I was amazed how you kept track of all our requests, suggestions etc. I never had to say anything twice. Your vendors did a really great job, my Mum mentioned how well you all worked together and how well you work with your staff.
We are so happy and had a fantastic weekend wedding. Thanks so much!
