Meet Mart-Mari Walker
Where It All Began
To say hospitality is in my blood is an understatement. I grew up in a talented hospitality-driven family. My mum made wedding dresses, baked wedding cakes, and catered weddings before opening up her own coffee shop; so you could say that cultivating moments and curating special events was nurtured in me from a young age.
This background guided me toward a career in hospitality and event planning. I have a degree in Tourism and Event Management and I went on to become a conference organiser. Over the course of my career, I planned large international conferences; including one of the largest wine exhibitions in Southern Africa, Cape Wine.
Planning Partner, Events Curator, Friend
I came upon wedding planning as an extension of my career organizing conferences and just like a wedding, it all started with a proposal!
I was asked to plan a special engagement proposal and afterwards help the couple plan their wedding. From then on I knew this was the type of event I was meant to be planning.
This is not a job to me.
It’s about developing a bond with couples and being a part of this special moment in their lives – something no job could provide and exactly what I love about wedding planning.
