Posh Functions cater for all your events, no matter how BIG or how small.

Posh Functions was established in 2006, I was planning my eldest son’s 21st birthday party and could not find an event planner to my liking, and my only option was to become my own event planner. After a very successful even catering for 350 guests, I was inundated with requests from family and friends to plan their events. Before long I was requested to do even planning for weddings, corporate functions, seminars, team building and fundraising. Although I do travel widely to plan events, I have now built my own Posh Conference & wedding centre where I also have my office and showrooms.

I was born in Marquard, a small farming town in the Free State, where I matriculated; I then studied at the University of Free State for 3 years before entering into the corporate banking world. During my 23 years in the corporate world, I often assisted in the planning of staff training and team building as well as planning functions such as workshops, promotions and seminars. It was during this time that I realized my passion for event planning. With my personnel experience gained in the corporate world I have managed to train and put together a dedicated efficient team who are able to cater for events ranging from: kiddie’s parties, birthday parties, 21st parties, costume parties, anniversary parties valentine parties, bachelor parties, kitchen teas, weddings, fund raising events, wine tasting, team building, conferences and seminars, no matter how big or how small.
