About Us

Jewel Weddings was co-founded by Soso Dekeda, a qualified Dental Technician who decided to follow her passion

On the weddings side, we have found that many couples are leading busy lives and thus do not have the time and industry knowledge to plan for their weddings adequately. This often leads to stress and frustration.

This presents an opportunity for us to assist them to take over the role of planning their weddings and thereby alleviating the stress and frustrations, which leads to them enjoying the period leading up to their wedding day and the actual day.

Similarly on the marriage front we have also found that once couples are married, they settle into “maintenance mode” and don’t really take the time and effort to build their marriages. The challenge with this is that the potential that can come from their union is not fully expressed. What we do to assist in this regard is that we create tools, like seminars and other resources, that can help couples enrich their marriages.

We are all about delivering unique experiences for our clients
