Stylish and Efficient
Our Wedding décor could not have been more perfect! Everybody  that I have seen since the Wedding has complemented me on the décor, the décor-styling and the ambience of the Wedding - that is only due to your hard work and efficiency in having the venue ready as it was and way before time.   Being in the Wedding industry myself, I know how difficult and tricky it can be doing centrepieces without flowers, and to tell you the truth, family and friends were worried about my choice of having flowerless centrepieces – BUT they were SO IMPRESSED because you made it look so beautiful and elegant that they couldn’t believe such a beautiful impact it had even though I didn’t use flowers. SO BRAVO!!   For me it was important that the venue was ready way before the wedding was due to start so the photographers could take pictures of the venue untouched! 
Well done!    I would also like to thank you for having done the mock-trials until you were happy that I was happy.  That showed me that you are meticulous in what you do, it also shows that you have a passion for what you do and that is important as I believe it always reflected in your work!
Sharon, you go beyond your duties and always encouraged me to follow my heart in deciding what to use for décor and that MUST and HAS to be appreciated!

Perfect Wedding Day “We greatly appreciate all of the hard work that you put into making our wedding day perfect.  It was a very elegant, polished event and all of our family and friends were very impressed.  The flowers and decor were exquisite and we’re only sorry that the day has now passed.  We’re also very grateful for the photographic memories that you were able to preserve..”

My Wedding Day  

“My Wedding Day was the best day of my life, other than the fact that I married the love of my life, this mainly due to Sharon and her husband Adam.  I planned my whole wedding from London, and if it weren’t for Sharon it would have been very stressful.  I was able to bounce ideas off her and she always kept me involved and able to enjoy the planning!  She also realised that I wasn’t an endless pit of money and planned accordingly.  Sharon was so organised and on the ball, there was absolutely nothing to stress about.  On the day Sharon and Adam were so lovely to have around, they added to the great feeling that surrounded our wedding.”

Professional and Prompt “Sharon Bennett was professional and prompt with all her responses to my queries and followed up timeously with service providers. She was also able to give me valuable advice on the small details I had forgotten and assisted in making the day memorable and special for all.  I could trust her with making things happen and following through with everything. She also had some good ideas and could direct me when I was not sure of service providers and items necessary for our special day.  I would highly recommend the use of her services in planning special occasions.”

About Us

Read more...Formerly known as SB Wedding Consultants and Co-ordinators, we have relaunched the company as White Orchid Events and Design. As the changes in White Orchid Events and Design are implemented, we guarantee that the same dedication, ethics and passion will still drive us in our mission to make each and every wedding a special and unforgettable occasion.

Every little girl dreams about the day when she will walk down the aisle to marry "The One". We at White Orchid Events and Design will assist you in bringing your wedding dreams to life. We liaise with a wide range of wedding industry professionals who are just as passionate about your wedding as we are.

Planning your own wedding can be a highly stressful event – especially if you lead a busy lifestyle or have a large family as there is always a risk of unforeseen family politics which may arise during the planning phase. It is easier to let somebody else deal with these issues tactfully. Your wedding day should be a memory that you carry with you for the rest of your life, so why not let us do the stressing for you and plan your dream wedding. All that is required from you is to arrive at your wedding looking like the princess that you are and to celebrate your special day with the ones you love.

Background & General Information


Read more...SB Wedding Consultants & Co-ordinators was established near Randburg on Gauteng's West Rand in 2008 by myself, Sharon Bennett.  In celebration of all the exciting things that 2012 promises, we have relaunched under the name White Orchid Events and Design.  A whole new era in weddings is dawning and we are proud to be part of it.

After planning my own wedding between 2006 and 2007, I realised that I had enjoyed the whole process so much that it awakened the entrepreneur in me. With a flair for the creative and being a natural people person (two vital skills for a wedding planner), I went on to study Wedding Planning as a career and thus started the ball rolling in the development of a career that I felt I was born to do.
