Who We Are

Jennifer Addo:

Jennifer has worked in the wedding industry for over 12 years and is the Lead Event Designer at Sheer Elegance Weddings & Events Design. Her innate sense of style and creativity allows her to see beyond the immediate and to envision spaces irrespective of the look and feel of the venue subsequently transforming same into beautiful, stylish events. Her first real challenge came when she single-handedly planned her own wedding and with the help of professional vendors in the wedding industry was able to execute the wedding of her dreams.

A year later she was asked by a guest from her wedding to assist her with design ideas and planning for her own upcoming wedding. It was an exhilarating experience, one which she reveled in so much that she knew undoubtedly she had found her niche.

In 2003 Jennifer’s vision Sheer Elegance Weddings & Events Design came to fruition working mostly for family and close friends transforming and designing spaces and executing the overall look of the event. Gradually it transitioned to more serious work while she balanced both worlds that of the corporate during the week and on weekends indulged in her passion for decor and design. After 13 years in banking she had the opportunity in 2015 to embrace her passion on a full time basis. She has keenly studied the work of accomplished designers, attended seminars, gained certification while simultaneously staying on top of current trends.

Jennifer Addo: ‘Your day is of utmost importance and should be a reflection of you, so we listen, suggest and work with you to ensure that the end result is what you envisioned and more. Whatever the venue, be it unconventional or other, the occasion formal or informal I’d be honoured to share in your day capturing your style.

“Jennifer worked hard to provide a beautiful wedding experience. Walking into our banquet hall, was like walking into a fairyland, filled with sparkling crystal, lavish table cloths, glittering center pieces with an elegant glow. Preparing for our special day, took a couple of trips to Jennifer’s studio, where she displayed the various decor items. Choosing from this selection and viewing the mock table helped us envision the seating and head table decor easily. Jennifer is a pleasure to work with and we would do so again! “
