Evegenia Poplett - Bio

My name is Evegenia Poplett (but most people call me Eve), and I am blessed to have an extraordinary life which allows me to create beauty, have the freedom to express love, travel and meet incrediblly inspirational people from all walks of life.

A bit about me: I was born in Soviet Union, lived in Siberia and then after collapse of Soviet regime, traveled the world with my parents. In 1994, my parents chose South Africa as our new home. It was easy to fall in love with South Africa, its culture, beautiful vistas and everything it has to offer. I graduated from Epworth in 1999 and chose to study Psychology at the University of Johannesburg. I completed an Honours Degree in 2004 and I am currently a registered Pre-Marital and Marriage Counsellor with FAMSA. I am married to an incredible man for 13 years now, and together we are raising our three children. As a family, we love traveling, reading, gardening and spending quality time together. Naturally I am obsessed with weddings, and every dimension of the event. I am a great problem solver, avid brainstormer and highly organised wedding planner and event designer.

How I started: I found myself immersed in the world of weddings in 2007, when wedding planning in South Africa was at its infancy. My company was one of the first companies in South Africa to specialise in wedding planning. Over the years my brand evolved and became one of the most respected and well known wedding companies in the country. I have been blessed with incredible clients who inspired me, put their trust in my process, believed my creative vision and allowed me to grow through creativity and imagination.

About my company: My boutique event design studio is based in Bryanston, Johannesburg, and we specialise in bespoke and highly personalised weddings. We strive to give our clients, their families and their guest an ultimate experience in luxury. A Splendid Wedding is beautifully designed, flawlessly executed and raved about for years to come. I love the world of weddings and I am very passionate about wedding planning and supporting aspiring and novice wedding planners with their dreams.
