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.

Meet the owner
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.
