The Story Behind Cape Events

He likes surfing. She likes shoes. She creates the vision. And he does what he is told (and then some!). Together, Mel and Jamie are a dynamic duo creating beautiful and memorable event spaces for weddings and events in the South West.

They kickstarted Cape Events (formally Cape Marquees) in 2007 by hosting their own wedding and they are the original marquee and event hire company in Yallingup.

Jamie is a ‘sparkie’ by trade and perfectionist with a considerable eye for detail. His years working as an electrician means he knows lighting back to front. Jamie blends safety and sophisticated techniques to deliver ambience that brightens any celebration.

Melanie is a hairstylist by trade and she’s the one taking the calls, answering emails and helping you to design and plan your event space. She has an artistic side, grounded in practical knowledge of what’s achievable, what’s not, and what can be stretched to make things happen.

Over the past 11 years, this husband and wife team have worked to establish Cape Events as the premier event hire and lighting company in the South West of WA. They head a dedicated team who create and install each event space to suit each customer’s needs. They work long hours and mostly over the weekend, but they do what they do because there’s something awesome about building a space from the ground up and contributing to someone’s special day. It really is satisfying!

Cape Events has an impeccable reputation for service. Check out what everyone has to say on the Testimonials page.

And what do Mel and Jamie think is their point of difference to other event hire companies?

Having worked at just about every venue in the South West of WA means we can best advise on what works best and what can be achieved at each place. We certainly save people a lot of time (and heartache) when it comes to designing their space and create something they’re proud to call their own.
