MEGAN MCILRATH

Owner & Event Specialist

Meet Megan. She is the brain and heart behind the Event Affairs brand. Originally from Johannesburg, she has called Cape Town home since 2007. Megan has an honours degree in Psychology and found her way into the events industry in a serendipitous twist of fate. It’s also how she ended up meeting and marrying the man of her dreams. (It’s a funny story, but she’ll tell you in person.) 

She is incredibly passionate about the Western Cape. She believes that bridal couples and corporate event clients are spoiled for choice when it comes to this breathtakingly beautiful province. Megan thrives on getting to know her brides and ultimately helping them plan and organise the most momentous day of their lives. Similarly, she loves applying her expertise and over a decade of event experience to the briefs from her clients. Megan has successfully run Event Affairs since 2010 and she’s incredibly grateful for all the clients that help her, and her business, grow from strength to strength.
