OWNER AND LEAD COORDINATOR
Hi, I’m Samantha, creative director and owner of Crimson Edge Events
I started Crimson Edge Events in 2010 with the aim of helping couples to make their wedding day unique, fun and a lot less stressful than it would otherwise be. Since then the business has grown from a one woman show (with the help of a very devoted husband!) to a team of 3 associate stylists and coordinators who are all very skilled and extremely passionate about what they do.
With qualifications in Event Management and Wedding Coordination, I bring a valuable mix of skills to each wedding I work on. For me, it’s not just about making your wedding look beautiful, but also about making a real connection with you so that your day is truly yours. I believe that every couple has their own style and it’s my job to help bring that out and build on it. You will notice all our weddings look quite different to one another and that is because I believe that your wedding should look like YOU, not like US. Even though each event is different, we use our past experience, education, critical thinking skills, intuition, and core event planning knowledge to plan, design, and coordinate weddings. You have the innate ability to figure out what needs done for each event.
When I’m not working you can find me out having breakfast with my husband Xavier, being a Mummy to our two wonderful little boys, Maxime and Sebastian, or dreaming of my next holiday (a stop in Paris is always included).
My approach to planning is simple, but thorough. From concept to flawless execution, I'm here to handle all of your wedding needs.

process and to cultivate a design that speaks to who you are as a couple while ensuring that your wedding day runs seamlessly. We commit to a limited number of projects per year, allowing our team to dedicate ourselves fully to each client's individual needs and vision.
Whether you are planning an intimate dinner for two, a distinctive ceremonial party, a corporate affair, or the dream wedding of the season, we can put ease, joy, tact, and style into your finest personal moments.
While we call Cape Town home, we happily welcome work in other parts of the country or the world.
We look forward to turning your vision into a reality!
It’s the event of a lifetime, the party of the year, the début of the season, an affair of the heart. It’s about transcending trends, comprehending customs, embracing technology, appreciating irony. It takes a general’s strategy, a diplomat’s negotiation, a concierge’s direction, a confidante’s comfort.
It means averting crises before they occur, understanding traditions without being told. Knowing when to speak up, and when to stay quiet. It’s serving dinner by moonlight, and crepes at dawn, distinguishing water goblets from wine glasses, encouraging a timid speaker or a tearful ring bearer, and guaranteeing everyone is at the best table.
Along with our creative partners, our hope is to guide you through the wedding planning
