Hey there, dreamers and soon-to-be newlyweds! I’m Meg, Event Specialist and Manager at Jabulani Winery at The Richmond Estate, and I’m here to tell you that your wedding day is about to get a serious upgrade!


With over a decade immersed in the vibrant world of weddings and events, I’ve worn every hat imaginable – from crafting breathtaking décor to seamless floral arrangements, meticulous planning and coordination, and flawless execution. My journey has taken me through the halls of Vancouver Island’s premier catering agency, where I mastered the art of operations management, and onto the prestigious grounds of the Drake Devonshire in Prince Edward County, where I brought countless wedding visions to life. Whether it’s an intimate affair or a grand celebration, if you can dream it, I’ve meticulously planned and flawlessly executed it.


From the moment you step foot into Jabulani Winery at The Richmond Estate, you’re greeted with a sense of magic, wonder & rustic elegance! That’s where I come in. With a passion for turning visions into reality, I’m all about creating moments by working with amazing local vendors to leave you and your guests speechless. Our true all-inclusive barn packages make your day effortless.


But here’s the best part: I’m not just your Event Manager—I’m your partner in crime, your confidante, and your biggest cheerleader throughout the planning process. From the initial consultation to the wedding day, I’m here to guide you every step of the way assisting with creativity, passion, and a whole lot of heart!


So let’s turn those Pinterest boards into reality, let’s create memories that last a lifetime, and let’s make your wedding day the stuff dreams are made of at Jabulani Winery at The Richmond Estate! And hey, let’s not forget the cherry on top – with our exquisite selection of wines, we’ll ensure your guests are raising their glasses to a toast that’s as memorable as the day itself. Cheers to love, laughter, and happily ever after! 🍷✨
