Admin & Accounts
From making sure the day to day of Wedding & Function runs smoothly, keeping in contact with our clients, keeping them up to date with the current or upcoming changes in the media industry, arranging speakers and finalizing details for our monthly Wedding Industry Networking Event as well as the occasional personal assistance such as feeding the fish while Alison is overseas, there’s nothing Heidi isn’t happy to help with. Heidi has been with Wedding & Function KZN for 5 years, she loves her job and loves that she and Alison have many of the same values and morals in life, not to forget their sometimes crazy and funny shenanigans in the office.
Married to a BFG – Big Friendly Giant (you’ll understand if you’ve met him) and the number one person in her life, for 12 years (together for 18 years), Heidi is blessed to have the most supportive, kind, fun-loving husband and best friend she could ever ask for. But that’s not where it stops, Heidi is full of fun and humour most of the time and she loves crazy. So to keep her on her toes and keep her high expectations of a not so boring life, she was blessed with two (Tristan 11 & Connor 8) very busy, boisterous, fun, kind, loving and just as crazy sons, who are her world.
Heidi believes that everyone should ‘Live their best Life’
