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.

  • You all know how obsessed I am with rings and pretty things - I'm like a magpie.

Another pleasure is how much I look forward to seeing the ways our brides pair their engagement rings with their wedding bands. There are sooooo many options, as highlighted by @melaniecaseyjewelry 🍉
  • Honeymoon vibes & holiday dreamin'🍉 Those who know me, know that I'm always plotting my next adventure! I'm currently in mid-plot as we're off on a trip at the end of June (yay!) I'm interested to know.... What's the most relaxing holiday you've ever been on?

I recently spent a few days in the Cape which completely revitalized my soul. There is something to be said about exploring our beautiful country and taking in your surroundings. Could be all the wine and fresh mountain air?

We've been to Europe and whilst it was an amazing experience, I got back feeling like I still needed a few days to recoup. I think that's because it was go-go-go the whole time : so much to see, no time to nap?{I'm a huge fan of vaycay napping} 😂

We also visit Kruger every year and nothing beats the bush! Even though you're waking up at 4.30am to be the first car at the gate (blame my hub for this) I still feel recharged and chilled after a week in the bush.

I think the most relaxing holiday I've ever had though, was our December holiday a few years ago, when we went to Northern Mozambique for like 3 weeks. We played cards every day, surfed, swam, napped and drank rum every night. It was rustic, super affordable and literally the most relaxed I've been in the history of ever.

So now that I've over shared, tell me about your favorite chilled vaycay?
