Melissa du Preez’s passion for detail and ability to create memorable, seamless events with unique décor options, stands her in good stead in her position as a Wedding and Events Specialist at Toadbury Hall Country Hotel. Always striving to find the best and most practical solutions for our valued clients, Melissa has one goal in mind: to exceed their expectations.
After obtaining a B.A in Psychology and an LL.B degree at the University of Johannesburg, Melissa realised her true passion and embarked on a career in events and wedding coordination. A veteran of the industry, Melissa set off as an after-party organiser and by providing safe and secure transport during the 2010 World Cup.
Today, having overseen more than 400 functions, events, weddings, music festivals and corporate functions, Melissa is still as passionate and innovative as when she started out in this industry.
“There is no greater honour for me after months of planning to walk my bride and groom to the chapel on their special day. It is incredible to be a part of such a special day and to watch someone say I do to their favourite human and the person they choose to spend the rest of their life with.”
Melissa is passionate about what she does and strives to ensure every event and function hosted by Toadbury is not just flawless and unique but beautiful, special and memorable.
