Aninka & Kieron
Leann aka Bells&Whistles,
THANK YOU SO MUCH! You have been so helpful in every request, so professional and were never far away when something spilt on my dress hahahha.
Thank you for always being on point with what needed to be done & when and taking such a massive load off our shoulders in the build up to the day. I couldn’t have asked for a better person.
The day ran so smooth, everyone (including the guest and venue staff) said that this was the most relaxed anyone has ever been at a wedding function and that is all thanks to you. You made it possible for everyone to just sit back and enjoy the day.
We had such a fantasic time and everyone called it the event of the year 🙂 Also thanks to Mable for the amazing flower <3
I would HIGHLY recommend you and your team for any function.
Lots of hugs and love,
Kieron and Aninka Badenhorst
ps: will post pics soon 🙂

We just wanted to say thank you so much for being such an amazing Wedding Planner for our special day! You were so professional and thorough and made our lives so much easier.
Leading up to the wedding and especially on the day, you made sure everything was in place and there were no glitches whatsoever. It was all so wonderfully orchestrated! Our guests have also commented on how smooth the day and evening ran, and how beautiful the set up was. Thank you for adding the extra special touches.
It was a pleasure working with you and we wish you much success in the years to come!
Thank you for everything. ❤

“Bells & Whistles were there for us on our wedding day. The collaboration with Mabel M Florals was magical! We also took the wedding day coordinating package and we got more than we expected. Leanne was on top of everything and even took off her shoes to run when she felt the shoes would slow her down, just to make sure that everything went according to plan. We are very happy with how it all worked out and would recommend this team any day. If we ever do a vow renewal we will definitely work with them again.”

“Dear Leann and Mabel,
Melissa & Guy
I hope you’re well.
I just wanted to take the time and send you a massive thank you for everything that you did for us for our wedding.
From planning, to organising, selecting…re-selecting, liaising with suppliers and the venue, the set up…just everything.
Our day would not have been possible without you. You made getting married one of the most stress-free times in my life, just when i thought that it would be the most stressful thing that my husband and I would have to do.
Everything went of without a hitch and we could not have been happier with how things turned out on the day.
Your hard work, extreme eye for detail, and your dedication to ensuring our day was the best of our lives showed through everything you did and…it was honestly the best day of our lives.
Thank you once again for making our day so extremely special. It would not have been possible without you.
D and D Clark”

“Thank you so much Leann for the magic you performed on our wedding day. It was such a comfort knowing that you were around and
probably sweating behind the scenes to ensure we felt no stress and could absolutely relax and enjoy the day. Our wedding was one of
the best experiences of our lives largely due to your contribution, and we cannot thank you enough!”
Megan & Matthew (Yzerfontein)
“To Leann and team, thank you so much for all your hard work and help with planning my wedding! I would have been lost without you. Thank you for making so many last minute arrangements which made the day so special. Also, the photo booth was so much fun. Thanks again.”
Joanne & Marcel
Marcel and I are back from honeymoon and we’re finally getting a chance to sit down and do our thank you’s, and of course you are right up there on the list! You took a lot of pressure off me on the day and I really appreciate it. And, of course, thank you for the gift – it was so lovely of you, and they will go down well with a glass of Franschhoek wine!”

I want to thank Leann from Bells & Whistles Wedding and Events Planner for the amazing job done leading up to and on our wedding day.
From the day I met Leann I knew she was going to ensure our day was special and a good memorable one. We had already booked the venue, which came with nothing, not a table, chair nor a fork, a blank canvas as it is called. I had an idea of what needed to be done for the wedding but needed someone with the experience to put it all together.
We agreed that Leann would do our on the day coordination and setup, but she went way over and above the call of duty. During our meetings she seemed to know exactly what I was envisioning. She has this calmness about her that puts your mind at ease and allows you to trust her completely. She met me at times that were convenient, working around my busy work schedule.
Leann ran down a checklist to ensure that we hadn’t overlooked anything and made suggestions on decisions we still needed to make. She met me at the various vendors that would supply us on the day. She tested different décor setups, understood my vision and exhibited the patience to understand my constantly changing ideas J
We worked within our limited budget, and she made sure I would get the best quality items at the price suited to our pockets.
Before the wedding, I sent her all the details of our vendors, of which she followed up with all of them that all is in order for the day.
Our venue had a few limitations but Leann handled it with poise and in the calm manner that makes her suited to be the best wedding coordinator.
She also has a vast knowledge of which vendors are the best and we decided to go with her recommendation of Mabel from My Wedding box to do our flowers for on the day. The flowers were amazing! Mabel understood what I was looking for in the flowers immediately. I wanted a lush, elegant, classic beautiful look for the flowers which matched the elegance of the décor. She got it right more than I could ever have imagined. It was the finishing touch needed to give the venue the complete feel of true sophistication and elegance.
Mabel has this vibrant personality that is like sunshine on a cloudy day. She puts this enthusiasm in her flower coordination and this result in truly beautiful masterpieces. Her unique style and vision is beautiful to see in her creations. I still have guests asking me about the flowers and how stunning it was.
Leann and Mabel work well together, they are like yin and yang, putting the pieces together to create a spectacular day.
Leann also has a photo booth service, Oh Snap! Photography. This provided the entertainment for the guests while they waited. The setup was professional and guests were given their photos instantly after taking them. The photo booth didn’t take up lots of space, and that allowed for free movement in the foyer of the venue. The picture quality is amazing and the props used create that feel of quirkiness and fun. Our guests loved it!
I know that it is because of Leann that my wedding ran smoothly on the day, she made sure that everything fell into place. Even after the wedding, she was there for us, she ensured the items were returned to the vendors, finding out how we felt, how our honeymoon was, being the support we needed.
Leann and her team made our dream wedding a fairy tale reality, and I am forever thankful to her and Mabel. I feel that Leann and Mabel are more than my wedding coordinator and florist, they have become a part of my life and I am thankful for meeting them and making beautiful friendships.
My recommendation to any bride is, to get a wedding coordinator that understands you and your needs. Someone that will be there for you, that you can trust, putting your mind at ease and who will be professional and provide quality service. This you will find in Leann from Bells & Whistles Wedding and Event coordination and Mabel from My Wedding Box.
Love and Light
Rochelle & Chezlan”
