Meet Dayna Viglietti
Born and bred Capetonian, mother to my baby girl Malia and my two fur babies, two very naughty chocolate labs and married to a carb loving Italian. I have been working in the wedding industry for over a decade.
I created this wedding planning business alongside my mother Cheryl Church. As a mother and daughter duo we have gained both local and international experience in the ever-changing wedding industry. Cheryl Church is now a proud Nonna to her very first granddaughter and takes her new title very seriously. So seriously that Cheryl now assists our SWE team more behind the scenes allowing her the freedom to be a Nonna.
I love: my family is everything to me- my husband, my little girl and my two fur babies 🦮
👩🏻💼I dislike: dishonest and stingy people. No one ever became poor by giving, giving doesn’t need to be something tangible like money but giving can also be in the form of a hug, being an ear to listen or even just offering someone a coffee or a plate of food 🍇
👩🏻💼I can’t: parallel park (but I did pass my drivers license test- promise!)🏎️
👩🏻💼I enjoy: Pilates! If I wasn’t a wedding planner I would have loved to be a Pilates or fitness instructor 🤸🏻♀️
👩🏻💼Something you don’t know know about me: I am the most disorganised person in my person life and my friends will tell you I am ALWAYS running late- but in business I am punctual and organised (I call it a healthy balance)🫀
👩🏻💼Something you don’t know about me: I lost my Dad 3 years ago and it still hurts. He was my biggest supporter and helped guide me with my business decisions. Where my business is today is definitely him still guiding me from up above🙏

👩🏻💼I love cozy rainy days and spending time with my loved ones including my two little doggies.🌧️🐶
👩🏻💼I dislike getting my face and hair wet when I'm swimming, very random I know, but I'm more than happy to just float on a lilo in the pool.
👩🏻💼I can’t function without my to-do lists, sticky notes and weekly planner.📝🎨
👩🏻💼I enjoy doing anything creative. My mom taught me how to paint and bake when I was younger and it's still something we love to do together.🎨👩🏻🍳
👩🏻💼Something you don’t know about me- When I was 7 years old I really wanted to be a veterinarian because of my love for animals. That was until I realised I would probably need to be able to work with snakes as well. That's a NO from me!🐍.
