Welcome, friends

MEET THE OH HAPPY DAY TEAM

Teamwork makes the dream work.

A heartfelt connection is a powerful thing especially when it comes to bespoke wedding planning.

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 luxury wedding planners.

The OHD team believes that our ability to connect with our clients is what differentiates us from other event planners in KwaZulu-Natal and all over the world, 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 fine-art 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.

  • Next stop : FRANSCHOEK and @laparisestate for a very special wedding celebration for Ross and @danijcyrus 🍉
  • For those of you who may not know, I lost my mom last week. On Monday morning 10 February at 9.30am she passed away peacefully in her sleep, and I lost my best friend and lighthouse.

My heart aches for her.

I know she's in a better place and that I'll see her again, but I cry for my own selfish reasons. I will never hear her voice or feel her hug me again. They say grief is love that has nowhere to go, and I understand this now.

This week, we put her to rest and mourn the loss of the most incredible mother, whose love I got to know and feel for 38 years. I will be spending this week making final arrangements for her, and spending time with my family.

Thank you to my clients for your understanding and my friends and colleagues who have been so generous over the past few days. Your kindness has touched my heart so much.

Thank you @peachesandmint for this image.
