Just Celebrate is a wedding – and event planning company founded by Renette Wentzel in 2017.
Renette is a Producing graduate of 2015 from AFDA, The South African School of Motion Picture Medium and Live Performance.
In 2017 she completed an online course through the University of Cape Town in Event Management. One of the subject elements of this course was Wedding Planning and it immediately piqued her interest. At the end of 2017 she completed a course in Wedding Planning and decor from the SA School of Weddings with distinction.
Renette is an organised, quick-thinking, into-the-details kind of person, all attributes that make for a consummate event planner. She has worked at many Capetonian venues, most notably Belair Pavilion, Zarose, The One and Only and the Brenton On Sea Resort, performing both planning and decor roles and she makes no secret of her clients’ needs being her top priority. Her favourite saying is: “A smiling bride is the most beautiful bride.” and she goes out of her way to ensure that each bridal party and all of their guests are happy throughout their special day.
Her passion for all things decor makes her a dream come true for brides looking for something out of the ordinary. She loves playing around with new ideas and enjoys making trends fit in with budgets or tastes, she says the whole process of matching decor elements and colours make her feel like a kid in a candy store. She loves working with renowned service providers and meeting new people, and often states that this is the most exciting part of her job.
”I love my job! Being a part of someone’s wedding day is such an amazing feeling. I love seeing all the planning and work come together into a celebration of two people’s very own love story. There is no bigger privilege for me.”
Professional at all times and adaptable to changes as the bridal pair requires, Renette excels at ironing out those pesky last-minute-emergencies that wedding days are so famous for. She is capable, presentable and kind and has a way of setting her clients at ease with a warm smile. Exactly the kind of person you want in your corner on your big day.
