Welcome, friends

MEET THE OH HAPPY DAY TEAM

Team work makes the dream work.

A heartfelt connection is a powerful thing.

Oh Happy Day was founded in 2014. Over time, Oh Happy Day has evolved from a one-person enterprise into a team of innovative contributors, each specialising in their own unique talents – from floral designers, to stylists and décor specialists and logistics and lead wedding planners.

The OHD team believes that our ability to connect with our clients is what differentiates us from other event planners, and this connection is at the core of every event that we design.

We do more than plan events: we convert life’s biggest moments into lasting memories that our clients remember forever. At OHD we feel privileged to have had the opportunity to meet and connect with wonderful people and assist them while they prepare for some of life’s biggest adventures.

Joelene Botha

Hello, I’m Joelene, a self-confessed chocoholic, book-nerd, beach lover, wife, friend and creative who’s always planning her next adventure. My friends call me Jojo, and I’m so pleased you’ve found your way onto Oh Happy Day.

For as long as I can remember, I have been in love with creative planning. I’ve been lucky enough to turn my passion into my career, and from our very first meeting together you will feel the creative energy and excitement of your planning journey begin. I can’t help it; my enthusiasm is contagious, and I pride myself on creating cherished moments that you and your guests will remember forever.

I really love people. Relationships are ultimately what make me tick. What I love most about relationships is how unique and original each one can be. It’s my interpretation of these love stories that lends itself to creating unforgettable celebrations and happy clients.

I am so inspired by nature. When I’m not planning and designing events, you’ll find me outdoors – either on the beach or spending time in the African bush; and always with a really good book. I am supported by my wonderful husband Stef and our two handsome cats Rusty and Felix: wherever they are, is where you’ll find my heart.

  • Starting the week right : with a beachy bouquet and our beautiful bride, Chels. We clicked the minute we met - and being part of your wedding was the hugest blessing for us.

Best part? Our late night chats (many months later) still continue. When brides become friends!

We had such fun creating this confetti bar for our latest inspiration shoot.

We used a combination of rose petals, dried bouganvillea, popcorn, and mini marshmallows to create a fun, interactive way for wedding guests to shower you with love.

@zanna_farah and @sebmfarah 's lush floral wedding was such a delightful way to end 2018.

Our team worked this one with hearts full of joy and the end result is something they can be proud of. Zanna & Seb, thank you for this honour. #fallingforfarah
