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!
