About Eve

This a website where I can write about my experiences as a wedding planner planning weddings in South Africa. It is dedicated to South African aspiring, novice and seasoned wedding professionals who need advice, inspiration and motivation. My aim is to discuss topics that affect all of us. Our wedding industry is relatively new and our passion and hard work need to result in creating wealth for all of us. Together we can bring an evolution to the wedding profession and enjoy the rewards.

Meet Eve Poplett

My name is Evegenia, or Eve as many call me. I love my husband and we have been married for 16 years. We have 3 gorgeous children together, and they are our world. I adore my three adorable yet naughty dogs.

My mother taught me the value of family, love, courage, and the power of faith. I lost my mother to cancer, and because of that I know the value of each day, people around me and I don’t sweat the small stuff. I am obsessed with weddings. I have planned and styled hundreds of weddings and still marvel at how much I learn from every new couple and their family.

I love baking, and I am an aspiring patisserie chef and one day, I hope to master the art of making my own macaroons. I listen to Armin van Buuren… and classical music.I cannot live without books or flowers…ever! I sketch, a lot… I love life, and I love weddings.

My wedding planning workshops are content rich and provide planners with valuable information. Over the years, participants only grew strength to strength after attending my workshops.

I believe that equipped with knowledge and understanding of what is required the sky is the limit!
