Candice made our wedding planning so easy and enjoyable - she had every step of the journey completely mapped out.
From the very beginning she totally understood the vision we had for our big day and brought it to life!
From table plan designs and stationery to laying out flowers and ten gorgeous table setting options for us to choose from in person - she had every aspect of the day and the lead up covered, with gorgeous options to fit our look and feel for the day.
I was honestly at ease on my wedding day, with complete faith in Candice to ensure everything ran smoothly. She created a truly magical setting and prioritised all of the most important aspects of the day for us!

Being treated like a VIP guest at your wedding is what we hoped for.
We always knew that living abroad while trying to organize a diverse 3-day long celebration for numerous international guests would be a daunting task. But once we had an idea of what we wanted to do, we contacted Candice from It Comes Naturally for assistance.
In our first video call, Candice listened intensity to our needs and within a few days, she sent us a tailored action plan. In the coming weeks, she presented us with several exquisite locations. Our idea was beginning to take shape! Right from the get-go, Candice was very mindful of our unique preferences and taste, which made trusting her and her team easy.
The It Comes Naturally team was with us every step of the way, which guaranteed that we never felt stressed, ignored or overwhelmed.
In the months leading up to our event, we finalised all the necessary arrangements, and like many of our guests began the countdown to our special day.
As soon as we arrived in Cape Town, Candice arranged a final dry-run, and as anticipated, everything was on brief and turned out to be better than we expected.
Thanks to Candice, the three events were the epitome of who we are as a couple and what we wanted to share with our friends and family. All of our guests were treated exceptionally well and many of them gave raving reviews about their truly unforgettable time in Cape Town.
Working with such a professional, organized and attentive team will make all the difference when you plan your special day. We were truly grateful to have worked with such an extraordinary events company.

Even though we live overseas, Candice made the planning process for our wedding stress free.
Her excellent planning made it possible to arrive in SA a few days before the wedding and not have to worry about anything.
All we had to do was enjoy our special day.
Candice was fantastic!

We spent two years planning our dream wedding, however we met our wedding planner, Candice, four years beforehand. Ever prepared, I started looking for a wedding planner before I got engaged - two years before to be precise.
How does the saying go? If you fail to prepare, you fail to prepare. I would not fail at my wedding.
From our first meeting, it was immediately apparent that we would be choosing to work with Candice - however far into the future. She came into the first meeting with many wonderful ideas, but more importantly, she took the time to get to know us as a couple and helped us begin to visualize what we wanted our wedding day to look like, sound like and feel like.
Two years later, when I had an actual ring on my finger, I called Candice and we picked up where we had left off and began to plan what may have been the most meticulously curated event I had ever attended. Candice was a consummate professional; she not only handled our decor, menu, seating plan, photography, guest lists, venue contract and other (read: all) important details, she also kept us organized with our small tasks and time lines that were necessary for the wedding to come off as we hoped, without ever becoming pushy. Her time management skills were exemplary; while pregnant, and later with a newborn baby, without exception, she was always available and accessible to us and our many questions and requests. Please note I did the complete opposite when I had two babies in the two years we spent planning and would go completely awol for weeks, because not all of us are Candice! Being the control freaks and creatives that we are, Candice was always attentive to our needs, and was able to give extremely practical input into our ideas.
She was gracious in her dealings with all wedding stakeholders (ie parents), and was transparent in all communications, be it financial or otherwise. She managed to coordinate a spectacular event that truly represented us, and blew away our guests.
While I imagine that all wedding planners can create aesthetically pleasing events, what set Candice apart and made us appreciate her as much more than just our wedding planner was her personal efforts to work with us as a couple rather than just a "client." She not only asked questions, she actively listened to our answers and thoughts and incorporated them into her suggestions. She has an ability whereby she gave us the space for total creative control without seeming disinterested, and was able to suggest amendments without seeming overbearing. To be able to maintain such a delicate balance between knowing when to take a step back and when to be more hands on, all whilst being next to her couple, holding their hands every step of the way, is a true gift. She came to understand what we value in each other as partners, and she helped us to realize how that could be represented genuinely in our wedding.
Without exaggeration, we owe our wedding day success to Candice. It was literally everything we had hoped for and more. If there were any challenges on the day of, we never knew about them because she was there every step of the way to take care of them.
We started our wedding planning journey two years ago, and when all the confetti and glitter had settled, I walked away from our wedding with a true friend. Candice is a particular and rare brand of planner who cares so deeply, that it is impossible not to love her, and to have her become a part of your story, even after the wedding day has passed.
Without hesitation, we would recommend Candice and It Comes Naturally, whose level of attention to detail is unmatched, and who will care as deeply as your family would, that the happiest day of your life is delivered.
Thank you, Candice, for seeing our beautiful day to fruition

Candice is immensely talented and with her added style and finesse, she took our vision and ideas and recreated them into the most magical day. She has a wealth of knowledge and does everything with passion, love and professionalism. We loved how she created such a sense of calmness throughout the entire planning process, which helped put our minds at ease.
Our day turned out better than we imaged and we were truly blown away by how things ran so seamlessly. It was an absolute pleasure working with Candice, and we would recommend her services to other couples looking to plan their big day.
