“Fabulously managed events are remembered always” – Maryke Groenewald
Maryke Groenewald is a passionate creative who, as dedicated Wedding Planner at The Plettenberg, brings a wealth of experience, gained from 15 years working in the wedding and events industry.
Maryke studied Hospitality Management at the University of Johannesburg, and started her career in Johannesburg’s demanding event’s industry, providing her with intensive experience in planning and coordinating weddings, festivals and various functions.
In 2008 she relocated to the Garden Route after falling in love with the area’s splendor. She is now an established and well-respected Wedding and Events Planner throughout the Garden Route and Karoo.
The wedding industry is rife with suppliers, however most offer standardised packages with the client’s specific needs being the last consideration. Maryke and her team pride themselves on delivering fabulously managed, bespoke weddings with one objective: client satisfaction.
There is only one opportunity to provide the bridal couple with the most extraordinary wedding day, which is why everything should come together in one perfect masterpiece. This includes budget, the venue, planning, prioritising what is really important, being true to yourself and hiring good suppliers.
Maryke travels between the Garden Route and Gauteng on a frequent basis, making it easy to meet with the bride-to-be wherever it suits her best.
