Thank you Suze for the best day ever in my life. You organized the traditional wedding at the town hall and our underwater wedding at BuddyDive. Everything you did for us will not be forgotten. I especially enjoyed the cake that you made for us

We had a wonderful stay in Bonaire, and much of that was due to Suze and Philip! They took care of all the wedding details which allowed my husband and I to enjoy the time with our family. I really appreciated being set up with photographer and hairdresser options and appreciated their professional recommendations. The day before the wedding, we were told that we needed to change the location, and Philip and Suze literally cleaned the beach to make a lovely spot for our wedding party. I really appreciate everything that was done to make our day extra special! Thank you!!!

If you are thinking to organize your wedding with someone, it has to be Suze! She works out all the details and you do not have anything to worry about. But let me tell our story! We started conversing with Suze almost a year before the event. She answered all our questions and made the process really simple. The day of the event, everything was ready for us and it was with the most magnificent taste! Her planning is meticulous and her attention to detail is fantastic. Suze was even our witness at the wedding and we hope to be in touch with her for the years to come. Bonaire is a paradise and people are so friendly that it becomes perfect for a wedding setting! Our spacial day became even more spacial thanks to Suze and the beautiful scenery and fantastic people of this island! We also have to mention Karel's Beach Bar. Here we had our dinner party after the ceremony! It was great... their attention to our guests and to us was outstanding! Our day was perfect and we recommend Suze as the best wedding planner EVER!

Suze was wonderful to work with even all the way from Vancouver Canada. She was patient, knowledgable, professional and attentive to all ideas and needs. I would highly recommend her for all your weddings and renewals. She's the best.

We had such an amazing day yesterday with our vow renewal and we cannot thank you enough. First, you made us feel very comfortable and it's as if we've known you for years. We understand that what you do is a business but we never felt like customers; we felt like family. Everything about the ceremony was spectacular: the table display, the speech, the poem, the beautiful cake - it was all so wonderful! Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts for a day we will never forget.

Vanaf ons eerste contact via de email, voelde het warm en vertrouwd! Vrienden zeiden ook tegen ons, jeetje die Sil die zo'n mooie dag uit handen geeft, knap. Ja dat kon ik gewoon, omdat het gelijk goed voelde! Na maanden mail contact konden we eindelijk jullie ontmoeten, dat was heel leuk!! 20 november hadden wij onze bruiloft op Bonaire, wauw! Het was echt geweldig!!!!!! Het was nog mooier dan wij in ons hoofd hadden. En dit komt echt dankzij jullie liefdevolle zorg en inzet, super!! We vonden het ook moeilijk om jullie gedag te zeggen, maar het is tot ziens. Want we komen jullie zeker nog een keer opzoeken, we zijn namelijk verliefd geworden op Bonaire! Nogmaals onwijs bedankt.

Wij willen jullie hartelijk bedanken voor een geweldige ceremonie! In Nederland hadden we al wat mail contact gehad. We Wilde graag trouwen op Bonaire en hadden daar 12 weekjes de tijd voor!!! Jullie hebben alle zorg uit handen genomen! het was prima geregeld met alles erop en eraan! De begeleiding bij de ondertrouw op het gemeentehuis, De bloemen en de stoelen zo mooi aangekleed de prachtige tafels met versiering en de heerlijke en prachtige cupcakes voor de kinderen! En de schaal sushi en de bubbels, Geweldig! We hebben ons niet 1 x zorgen gemaakt! Wat onze wensen ook waren, jullie hebben ervoor gezorgd. We raden in Nederland de reeds getrouwde aan dat nog een keer over te doen op Bonaire! Jullie hebben een mooi bedrijf en zijn hartelijke mensen. Heel veel succes in de toekomst en wie weet zien we elkaar op Bonaire weer!

I have the highest praise for my Bonaire wedding planners, Philip and Suze Joukes! I had my 20th wedding anniversary vow renewal celebration a few weeks ago. We had 19 close friends and family members travel to Bonaire to celebrate with us. I hired Philip and Suze Joukes to help me plan my wedding anniversary vow renewal ceremony and reception. My husband and I met them last December. I have been in constant contact with them ever since that time, working hard to plan this very important and once in a lifetime event. Philip and Suze are a dynamic husband and wife team. They were my eyes and ears in Bonaire and helped me plan every detail of my event, from the wedding renewal vows, ceremony, dinner reception, flowers, cake, decorations and music. The result was amazing and far exceeded our expectations! Every detail was attended to with the finest care. Philip and Suze found the perfect wedding singer for our reception, Harrie Schoffelen. He wrote a personalized song for our ceremony and then played beautiful guitar music for the cocktail hour and dancing music for the reception. All our guests loved it! Phillip and Suze decorated my reception, which was held at the beautiful water front restaurant, Spice Beach Club. The venue looked amazing, after Philip and Suze decorated the balcony for the ceremony and reception, with the most gorgeous flowers and heart-shaped coral. My guests said the venue looked like the French Riviera! Phillip performed a very personalized ceremony for us, that I can described as touching, sentimental, heart-felt and humorous. He took the utmost care and time in writing his remarks, which were crafted from feedback from our closest friends and family. Our reception dinner, which Philip and Suze help me plan at Spice, had the most delicious food and was executed to perfection. All of my guests had a wonderful time and raved about this amazing event. Philip and Suze, I am grateful for all of your hard work on this - I could not have done it without you. Thank you for helping us create the most wonderful and memorable 20th wedding anniversary celebration - it is an anniversary that we will never forget!

Philip and Suze arranged three weddings for our family and they were wonderful! They are very professional and great to work with. We highly recommend them for any of their services. Thank you Philip & Suze and although this will be the last wedding we hope to keep working together for many more years.

Veel dank voor een onvergetelijke huwelijksceremonie op Sorobon beach! Het was fantastisch! De locatie was geweldig, de sfeer ongedwongen en ontspannen en de taart met de zeepaardjes was heerlijk! Het was precies zoals we in gedachten hadden. Het contact met jullie was heel hartelijk en alles was uitstekend verzorgd. Samen met de kinderen kijken we terug op een hele mooie dag!

We both agree that it was the most relaxed and stress free day as you took care of all of the details. The beach was beautiful and the weather was perfect. We were very happy and it was exactly how we wanted our wedding to be, simple and elegant.

The setting was beautiful, the words were thoughtfully put together, the lovely photos from Tim were tasteful and really well done and the organisation and support of our last minute changes in time to accommodate our boat trip after the event was really professional - we felt very looked after.

Suze and Philip made sure we could relax and went the extra mile for anything we wished for. They know their way around on the island and their network of professional people was equally well equipped for the job!

Suze, Philip, Tim en Barbel hebben onze trouwdag tot een onvergetelijke, prachtige dag gemaakt. Alles was tot in de puntjes geregeld op een heel ontspannen manier. Make-up, kapsel en foto's geweldig mooi en het diner aan huis was heerlijk. Het is een prima team samen, echte vakmensen. Niks dan lof voor deze mensen en we kunnen ze dan ook echt bij iedereen aanbevelen die op het prachtige Bonaire gaat trouwen. Als je als bruidspaar alles in handen geeft van Suze, Philip, Tim en Barbel heb je zelf nergens omkijken naar en wordt het gegarandeerd de mooiste dag van je leven!
