“There is an immense satisfaction and an indescribable feeling of joy and happiness in bringing couples’ wedding dreams to life! Quite simply, I love what I do and I give my all to each and every couple I have the honour of working for. Being the “Honorary Bridesmaid”, the “Safe Pair of Hands” that brings it all together so that couples get to enjoy the biggest and best day of their lives, is by far the best “job” anyone could ask for. As the saying goes… “Do what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life.”
Your wedding day is meant to be as you envisioned it in your mind or better, and that’s what I strive to do. I love this quote from Walt Disney that really just epitomises this:
“Whatever you do, do it well. Do it so well that when people see you do it, they will want to come back and see you do it again and they will want to bring others and show them how well you do what you do.”
Whilst we specialise in weddings, we do loads of other events and literally get to be a part of so many occasions. We’re blessed beyond measure because we get to do what we love and we get to do it with people who feel the exact same way! What more could you possibly ask for?”
Meet Simone Hasselbach, Owner, Creative Director, Head Planner and Florist for A Dream Come True Events.
Simone has always wanted to be an event planner/florist, and opening her own company has literally been a dream of hers for many years. She finally got a chance to set this dream in motion and bring it to life when she decided to give up her career as a business analyst and study full-time for a Certificate in Advanced Wedding Management at The SA School of Weddings. She worked in the corporate sector for over 10 years and brings with her an in-depth knowledge of working on all the aspects of projects ranging in size from very small to large scale.
Being a creative person and having experience as a business analyst for 13 years under her belt gives our company the edge over other event planning businesses when it comes to analysis, planning, budgeting, working according to deadlines, working under pressure and delivering work of a high standard.
Before starting the company, she has, over the years, also been responsible for planning a range of events from weddings, birthday celebrations, baby showers, bachelorette parties, year-end functions and corporate team-building days.
She has done corporate and personal gifting for many years and during her studies at ‘The SA School of Weddings’ she also assisted on numerous weddings and corporate events.
Simone has a National Diploma in Financial Information Systems and a Diploma in Business Analysis.

A sublime engagement arranged by Simone Hasselbach.. From the start Simone was constantly on the ball with all the arrangements. There was not much time to make all the necessary arrangements because I decided to change the venue at the last minute. Even the tight deadline (less then 3 days) did not put her off and she had a mountain to climb. Flowers, food, platters, wine, a violinist and a photographer needed arranging. Naming these items might not sound like much but when the day arrived one could really appreciate all the effort. This in turn put me at ease so I could enjoy the moment and appreciate all the emotions involved. The attention to detail was absolutely mind blowing not even to mention the setting. Simone, thank you for all the hard work and effort that took our special day to the next level. We can and will definitely recommend you to anyone!
Thank you for planning the perfect wedding! Couldn’t have asked for a better wedding coordinator/planner if I tried ❤️
THANK YOU AGAIN FOR EVERYTHING! IT WAS A DREAM ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
