Corks pop as Port Elizabeth's Champagne Events wins Top Wedding Planner SA 2016


Port Elizabeth’s premium events company Champagne Events was named Top Wedding Planner in South Africa and placed in the top three in the Upcoming Venue category at the 2016 Top Vendor Wedding Awards ceremony held in Johannesburg on Tuesday, 30 August - the culmination of this year’s competition among the best of the best in South Africa’s wedding industry.

Owned and managed by Mandy Watson, Champagne Events is a four-star venue set in the exquisitely beautiful Chelsea Conservancy in Port Elizabeth.

Over the last 13 years it has earned its reputation as a leading events company and become the Eastern Cape’s most sought-after event coordination specialist, proving itself on over 800 events including the launches of top wind farms, solar farms, golf estates and promotions in the motor industry; 27 separate events for the 2010 World Cup; a variety of conferences for local and international clients; and countless weddings.

The venue has been described as a little bit of heaven. There are three distinct areas to say your vows, exquisite garden settings and an elegant reception room, which makes it the perfect paradise for a wedding celebration. 

It’s also ideal for getting down to business. Champagne Events welcomes small meetings, designer team-building, corporate events, year-end functions, gala dinners, awards evenings and more.

Booking at Champagne automatically includes the services of an event planner as well as access to an extensive array of decor items, delectable dining options and oodles of creative flair, but the true magic lies in the warmth of Champagne hospitality, planning expertise, the special care extended to clients and the unequalled value of a comprehensive service offering.

Champagne is known for the particular delight it brings to special occasions and the exuberant popping of corks. Now there is even more to look forward to at Champagne. A Wine Club, Dinner Theatre, Special Occasion Market Days and a host of other events will launch soon. All new ways to wow you the Champagne way!

Mandy is extremely proud of the Champagne Events win as the Top Wedding Planner nationwide and is especially excited to have brought this accolade home to Port Elizabeth. She is passionate about the company, its performance and its people, and welcomes the acknowledgement of this prestigious award. 

At Champagne Events, the team are opening bubbly to celebrate their achievement and are looking forward to making more beautiful things happen.
