    Covid wedding life saver

    Having Uswanky events as our wedding planner made the seemingly impossible achievable! She came through for us in so many ways, despite restrictions, constant changes and depressing conditions. Based of the forecast there was going to be rain and snow on the day of out outdoor wedding. We had to change the date 2 days to the wedding. This wedding planner extraordinaire was able to rapidly convert our wedding rehearsal day to the main event. She handled all the vendors, and it was an amazing day for us. We highly recommend her services.

    Hi Fiifi and Grace,
    Thanks for allowing U'Swanky Events to be part of your special day.
    Yes, there was a lot going on, especially due to the changing government guidelines but we are glad everything worked out well.
    You two are special and so was your day. Wishing you a life and marriage full of blessings as you begin your new journey!

    Amazing!!!!!

    Aunty Meg like I fondly call her was amazing. Working with her to plan my wedding was just nothing short of a blessing especially during the period of a global pandemic. She was always very professional and timely during meetings. Her attention to detail is such a gift that helped me go to bed reassured that I was in excellent hands. She was also so flexible, consistent, understanding and reassuring with her words.

    Being of Nigerian descent, I had to have a 2 day wedding ceremony and as you can imagine, doing that during a pandemic posed a huge challenge. I’m so proud to say both of my wedding ceremonies turned out so beautifully, well planned and organized while adhering to COVID guidelines. She worked relentlessly to bring my vision to life and laid all my worries to rest. She also worked so well with the vendors.

    I absolutely had no regrets having her plan my wedding. She’s the absolute best.

    Personal and Professional

    U'Swanky Events Planned both my traditional and formal wedding. Planning was a pleasure and she was very professional in her interactions with vendors even with the more difficult once.
    Both events were planned beautifully and ran very smoothly.
    I’m forever grateful!
    Thank you.

    Heavenly bliss

    “I honestly thought I was very organized and detail oriented enough to plan my wedding- until I met Mrs. Anozie. Not only did she point out the details that I could have missed, she helped me organize my thoughts and planned my wedding to perfection. I was the happiest woman in the world on the first of July, not only because I was marrying the love of my life but because I did not have to worry about anything on that day. Mrs. Anozie took care of everything and made sure that all the preparations were made so that I could relax and just enjoy myself. Not only that, we were able to stick to our budget and even save a few dollars which was extremely wonderful!! I enjoyed a completely stress-free and enjoyable event because wee were wise enough to involve our perfectly dynamic event planner in the planning and execution of our party.” u'swanky was the greatest wedding gift from the powers that be

    I worked with the planner two years in a role. She was on point with every detail. Very flexible and friendly. I look forward with working with her again.

Magdalene  Anozie

Magdalene Anozie

Director

My name is Magdalene, known by my friends as Meg. I am a wife, and a mother of 4 beautiful and handsome children. My family is my inspiration and they constantly challenge me to achieve excellence in everything.

I have a degree in Urban planning from the University of Calgary, a diploma in practice management from Australia, a Microsoft certified engineering certificate from South Africa, and currently a certified member of the Wedding Planners Institute of Canada (WPIC).

My daughter Olejuru inspired the creation of U’Swanky Events Inc. After watching me organise one family and friend event after another, from anniversary celebrations, to weddings, to conferences, one day she said “Mum, you need to start a business in organizing events. You are so passionate about helping people make their day perfect, and sometimes you are even more excited about the event than the celebrant. You always go above and beyond what is asked”. I took her compliment seriously and began to contemplate the idea.

Some time in 2017, I was called by a friend to help with her daughter’s wedding.

Just after that, I got another call from a relative me to telling me she was engaged and had decided to wed in the fall of 2017. Her mother was livid because she felt the time was too short. I assuaged her fear and went to work immediately. Together with the couple we made their dream Fall wedding happen.

In all these, my joy knew no bounds as I helped plan and coordinate the event’s. I did not stop until I had successfully executed the weddings.

My greatest happiness is the satisfaction and broad smile that was permanently fixed on the face of the couples, and of course, their parents.

In addition to Weddings, I also have experience organizing events ranging from doctor’s conferences to anniversary celebrations and ceremony.

After continuously finding myself involved in planning and coordinating events, my daughter’s sincere comment reactivated my long-lost love and passion for event planning. I am a wedding and event enthusiast, passionate about weddings, and yes, having a good party! I can take your dream and transform it into a reality for you. I am devoted to meticulously planning and coordinating all the events I am given, whether big or small, whether a wedding or a milestone event, whether a conference or a birthday. You will never be disappointed trusting me with your event. Name the event, set the date, let’s get started!
