A Little About Us…
The School of Weddings was founded in 2009 by Khali Collins in an attempt to educate interested students looking at a career in the wedding and events industry about the real life prospects of such a career.
In February 2020 Khali was the Wedding Planner to the no1 Wedding Planner in the World, Colin Cowie. She has organised many successful events throughout the course of her 20 year career as The Wedding Specialist and has gained an excellent reputation in the wedding industry, together with the respect of other industry leaders. Her love for weddings and passion for creating that perfect day are qualities she naturally passes onto her students.
The aim of the SA School of Weddings is to provide the Industry with both knowledge based and experienced employees/small business owners at the end of their chosen Course.
In 2022 are very proud to be the floral, decor and design team for the Bivest Gala dinner which featured Seal in March and John Legend in September. Our Event & Wedding Design Students had the opportunity to get practicals as these Gala’s.
We are the producers of the South African – Ubunty Pathways Gala dinner. This Gala dinner is also held in London, New York and Los Angeles.
All courses offered by The SA School of Weddings are designed by industry professionals to equip future wedding industry leaders with the skills they will need for a successful career. The demands and requirements upon the students are not to be underestimated as the attendance and pass marks are of a very high standard, so as to give the students a greater insight and understanding of what will be expected from them in the workplace.
Some students succeed, some fail, but in all aspects, the School continues to generate employable students that benefit the Industry, either through full time employment or starting their own small businesses with the knowledge and standards expected of them.
