Meet the Team

Creative Director

Certified Wedding Coordinator

Dara Ayoola

 

I am really excited that you have visited us today. A lot of people find the wedding planning process stressful, but the thought of creating and imagining an event unique to each couple constantly puts a smile on my face. I believe my drive comes from the love I have for people. When you have a passion for ensuring they have a stress free fun and memorable event, planning no longer becomes a stressful ordeal. To strengthen my skill, I completed the Wedding coordinator certification with the Wedding planners Institute of Canada.

 

I started my career first as a child and youth worker then decided I would follow my passion as a Registered nurse. I am also a CEO of a fashion line.

All of my experiences play a part in my being the best planner/coordinator I can be. Becoming a Registered Nurse allowed me to pay attention to details. My experience as a fashion designer allowed me to explore and grow my creativity. With the love for people, my ability to  pay attention to detail and my creativity, I am able to assist you in creating moments that you, your spouse and your guests will remember for a lifetime

I believe marriage is meant to be enjoyed, and not meant to be endured. At Oruka Events, we truly believe in having fun. My passion for wedding planning came after planning my daughters weddings. I enjoy providing  support for couples as well as their parents during the planning process. 

I have been counselling couples for over 20 years and I have been married for over 30 years. i have seen weddings evolve during these times. Due to popular demand I wrote book about marriage I called “Making Your Marriage Work: Maama’s Practical Wisdom for a Lasting, Happy Marriage”

I look forward to getting to being part of a beautiful journey that you are about to embark on
