Nine years ago, My mum and I planned an unforgettable 500 guest wedding!

As the firstborn this would be the first wedding in the family, the last thing we wanted was a disorganized, and boring wedding.
During the planning process we quickly realized the time and effort required to put everything in place.  

Letting my family know meticulous, planning early on was crucial to putting together a seamless fun and memorable wedding was crucial.

Sometimes, weddings focus too much on decorations and not enough on how guests feel. But what really makes a wedding special is the experience guests have and the memories they make.

At Oruka Events, from the start of our planning, we emphasize not just the aesthetics but also ensuring guests have an unforgettable time. We aim to create moments that everyone will cherish long after your special day.

Hate going to weddings where you just sit there and wait…and wait…and wait until something happens or people show up?

With us, your guests will experience exceptional service from the moment they arrive until your sparkler exit is complete. And it will all be well coordinated and immaculately timed.

No Sit-Down And Wait Syndrome. 

Let us take care of the behind the scenes so you can focus on whats ahead for you. From making international calls during the ceremony so your dad can say "I do" and surprising your wife with five beautiful gifts, we promise to surpass expectations for your perfect day.
