Working with Luke was an absolute dream! He is creative, organized and he took complete ownership of the project we worked on. I can highly recommend Luke to anyone looking for a planner or stylist for any event.

I have worked with Luke Krone for over 10 years on many events. His professional approach to everything he does and whomever he deals with is truly remarkable. His creativity with every event reveals his unique ability to not only adapt to each client’s wish list, but to exceed their expectations time and again. I love working with Luke at every opportunity, both as a media personality and as a client.

Luke is by far one of the most creative, fun and lovely people I have ever worked with. When I think of him the word quality in every aspect springs to mind.

Luke Krone executes events of the highest calibre. Every nuance of detail is accounted for, from delectable food, tasteful decor and an ambience that’s hard to manufacture. Every guest’s need is taken care of – the hardest decision I’ve ever had to make was which canapé to eat first!

From the moment we appointed Luke, it was obvious that we had made the right decision. We wanted a very hands-on wedding planner as we lived in Johannesburg and wanted a wedding in Cape Town.  He worked tirelessly to transform all our wishes into a magical reality and always managed our concerns in his soft, gentle and calming manner that comes so naturally to him. His attention to detail was fantastic.  He knew all the best people in the industry and made great recommendations for Flowers, Music, Photographers and even digital designers for online invitations.  On our special day he ensured that we were relaxed and had a wonderful time without us having to worry about a thing. He even had spare cufflinks and ring-holders made for us “just in case we forgot”.  We can highly recommend Luke and his company to assist you with your wedding or any other special function you might have!

The Krone Family I am fortunate to have known for over 30 years! So, it was no surprise for me to see Luke Krone enter the world of Hospitality and Entertainment – he has the wine industry’s and hosting genes in him! And as such he has proven himself to be an impressive, no nonsense “entertainer” and event coordinator- a true professional with the heart and soul to go with it. Luke has that lively, no-problem, no challenge-is-too-big attitude, amazingly charming, puts everybody at ease and hence is a natural, most attentive and attention-to-detail, true “Mein Host”. He is a perfectionist without being arrogant about it. He has a creative vision and a strong artistic streak to him, which suits the occasion – business or romantic event! I’ve had the pleasure to observe and experience Luke in ACTION – it was most admirable!

Luke is someone with a great passion for the civilised aspects of life and has a great understanding of how a particular project should function or not. With this ability and judgement he boosts confidence and puts his working partners in a comfort zone. He worked with me on the South African Chamber of the Commanderie de Bordeaux where he was in charge of organizing our different meetings, projects and functions. In Luke I see someone that observes, appreciates, then judges and does what is necessary to be done. Luke is always friendly, helpful and someone with immaculate manners. In my book – a true gentleman!

Organising a wedding in Cape Town when we were Johannesburg based seemed to present insurmountable problems.  Through a stroke of absolute luck we were introduced to Luke Krone and his team.  From our first meeting, I knew that we were in safe hands.  Luke took time to learn about us and to hear our story and to understand exactly what we wanted our wedding to be.  With the brief of “abundant yet elegant” Luke set about planning a wedding that exceeded all our expectations.  Luke has an amazing eye for detail and design and has impeccable taste. That paired with his exuberance, passion and lust for life meant that our wedding was not only aesthetically beautiful but it was presented with Luke’s personal touch and the love and care of his amazing team.  We could not have asked for more from our wedding and, best of all, we made friends for life.

From the moment I met Luke, I knew he would be able to create our dream wedding. He understood the details, subtleties and nuances in my descriptions and took the time to really get to know us. Luke kept me posted throughout the entire process, managing me to ensure all deadlines were met which I appreciated more than I can describe. I am busy and needed someone there for me and I trusted him completely. Our journey together culminated in a truly magical day loved by all.

Luke Krone has a unique feel for what his clients want – and he delivers, in fact over delivers.  Hosts and guests feel pampered knowing that a true professional has taken care of every minute detail. Very relaxing.

I have never worked with an events organizer as efficient, thorough and hardworking as Luke Krone. Matching it with Luke’s unequalled sense of style, the ability to bring a team together and, more importantly, work together with such enthusiasm and dedication, Luke Krone Events have set a standard few others can equal. Small enough to provide something often lacking – personal service – his events carry a distinct Luke Krone stamp.  I have been delighted to work with Luke and reap the benefits of your skills in organizing our Kyknet Foxwood Arts Festival in Johannesburg.

It’s always a pleasure to attend an event organised by Luke. His creative flair and eye for detail always ensures that the event feels special and the venue looks gorgeous. The events I have attended have always been very well organised with plenty of food, drinks and wonderful music creating an elegant ambiance. You’ll usually find special treats like fashion shows and vintage car collections too which add to the fun of the day. Luke is also such a genuinely kind and generous person and I think it is this quality which makes the guests at his events always feel welcome and relaxed. I look forward to attending more of Luke’s fabulous events in the future.

Luke recently organised a large  event for Ultra Liquors, and I was absolutely thrilled with the outcome. He had gone beyond the call of duty for us, and I can only highly recommend him. We are already at the planning stages for the next bigger event, and I would not entertain using anyone else to co-ordinate it. He certainly has the  ‘magical touches’ , and an eye for detail. Having previously organised large functions and events in the past, I am very experienced in this regard, and he is a Winner.

I have known Luke Krone for a decade and worked with him on several successful events in the wine industry, including Mussels in May for Ultra Liquors, an event which has gone on to become an annual fixture on the wine lover’s calendar. Luke has a sunny nature and optimistic attitude and for him the glass is always half full – preferably with bubbly. His organizational skills are excellent, his contacts many and varied and for several years he kept the Commanderie de Bordeaux on track. Luke makes an occasion an event.

My husband and I had the pleasure of using Luke Krone as our wedding planner for our big day. Other than our decision to tie the knot; Luke was the wisest choice we could possibly make, he made the planning of our day a joyful experience devoid of the usual anxiety associated with big occasions.In addition to being extremely efficient; Luke is kind, generous and genuinely cares about the people he works with. I honestly miss interacting with Luke and although we have not been fortunate enough to spend much time together post our nuptials I consider him a friend. I wholeheartedly recommend him to any bride to be.

Luke Krone is a dyed-in-the-wool entertainer and event coordinator. Luke’s natural charm and vibrant character makes him an attentive and fun host, and one that makes you feel immediately welcome and included in any crowd or ceremony. I’ve had the pleasure to attend a few high-profile events organised by Luke and the effort that went into ensuring the perfect execution of the events was obvious. Luke’s perfectionist nature means fine adherence to timing of procedures, whilst his sensitive sense of observation always delivers events that is right on brand – whether it is a genial evening or a sexy garden party. I will never, ever, decline an invite to an event organised by Luke.
