    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.

    Hi Richard and Glory,
    Happy 6th month anniversary! Wow, time sure flies by quickly.
    Thank you for allowing U'Swanky Events to plan and coordinate your Atlanta wedding from Canada. It was our first event during the pandemic and we are glad the weekend was successful. It was a pleasure to work with you both and we will cherish the experience for a very long time.
    Both of you are so lovely and we wish you the best in life and marriage as you grow together in love.
    Sincerely,
    Magdalene

    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

    Thank you Victoria and Darlington. Your wedding aroused the joy of wedding planning in me. We sure had lots of fun putting it together.

    Highly Recommend

    We hired Magdalene to coordinate the day of the wedding. She went above and beyond her tasks. She followed up with us early in the month and a few days before, kept vendors, bridal party, and us informed, on schedule, and stress free. She gave us great tips for improving the function on the wedding day and was hands on throughout. She took initiative to beautifully setup decorations we had left the day before and to remind us of important program details. She really stepped up to the plate to ensure the wedding day went off without a hitch and we are so impressed and thankful!

    U'Swanky Events's reply:

    Coordinating your wedding was a blessing. Both you and Daniel are blessed to have found each other. Your day was so full of Joy as it should be.
    Thank you for allowing us share your special moments by coordinating your wedding.
    We wish you the very best life has to offer.

    Excellent Service!

    Magdalene Anozie of U’Swanky Events is amazing!! She planned my event which took place on March 2nd, 2019. The service I received was exceptional! She went above and beyond to make my event a success! She is very organized, very detailed and professional. Her knowledge of vendors is priceless as she was able to save me money by recommending great vendors for my event. She provided great ideas for my event and honestly I would never have thought of those ideas myself. The event went without a hitch as she made sure we were right on schedule and I had nothing to worry about. I am super grateful that she planned my event and I highly recommend U’Swanky Events for all your event planning.

    Chioma, thank you for your kind words. We at u'swanky events pride ourselves in giving our very best to all our clients. Thank you for trusting us with your event.

    Stress free and rewarding

    This was a surprise wedding anniversary party. It was done so well, I have to credit Magdelene for her meticulous planning.
    In my daughter's words:
    Ms. Magdalene planned my parents' 25th wedding anniversary party and it was beautiful. She had suggestions for every step along the way and her attention to detail was impressive.  Everything from the games played to the music selection reflected my parents' personalities. During the event, we could sit back and enjoy the party because she made sure all aspects of the event were well taken care of. I am grateful for all the hard work she put into making the party a success!

    U'Swanky Events's reply:

    The surprise for your parents was so worth all the work put into it.
    Our greatest joy was seeing the shock on their faces when they walked into the hall.
    We appreciate the opportunity given to u'swanky events help make their celebration of love possible.

    Efficient, Elegant, Dedicated, Professional

    We could not have pulled off our wedding in the time frame that we did if not for Magdalene. She had so many connections, from event venues, to decorators, to caterers, and even when we thought we had good ideas for service providers, she proposed even better ones!
    You can rest assured that all the little details will be taken care of and that you will not need to worry because she's already thought of all your questions before you even ask.
    Because we chose Magdalene as our wedding planner we had so much peace of mind. It was really worthwhile to have someone else managing the logistics of our wedding so that we didn't have to. It allowed us to enjoy the process and really prepare ourselves mentally for the big change that was about to occur in our lives.
    We are both beyond grateful for all the hard work and dedication Magdalene put into making our day memorable. She was the brains behind the whole operation and that's the kind of person she is, always willing to step in with the knowledge and preparation needed to make any event go smoothly.

    Thank you so much Magdalene! We cannot say it enough to truly express our gratitude.

    U'Swanky Events's reply:

    Benny and Jack, I am so grateful to have been part of your wedding. It was a very beautiful day. Your love was felt by everyone. Blessings to your young family.

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!
