Yolandi Botha was running a successful hair salon in Pretoria when Stefanie – Founder of Fynbos Bridal Boutique – shared her dream from God to start franchising her business, and she wanted a franchise to open in Cape Town. Yolandi knew this was her calling because her husband had just learnt that his business was moving to the Cape, and the family had to relocate.
Yolandi has been involved in preparing brides for their big day since an early age; she’s always had a passion for all things related to weddings. Things fell into place quite quickly, and during the winter of 2020, the Fynbos Bridal Boutique Cape Town branch proudly opened its doors in Durbanville.
Since then the client base and demand have grown substantially, so much so that they had to move twice to bigger premises. They are now situated in the Bella Rosa Village in Durbanville.
Charmaine McGuinness came on board as Yolandi’s business partner in October 2022 after becoming involved with the business back in 2021. An experienced event production manager, Charmaine started assisting Yolandi with various aspects of the company, including intricate alterations on new brides’ wedding dresses. Her love for the business and its clients grew exponentially, and she soon joined Yolandi as co-owner.
Both Yolandi and Charmaine are passionate about all things bridal. This is a blessing to all who enter their boutique because they’ll ensure that your “big day” is an unforgettable experience!
I enjoyed every moment of working with the team at Fynbos! From the moment I walked in for my first appointment, finding THE DRESS, and every fitting afterwards, I was surrounded with excitement and such excellent service. Thank you to the ladies at Fynbos! Looking back at my wedding photos, I fall in love again with my dress.
I had such a great experience with Fynbos. They accommodated my tight wedding timeline, altered my dress to be exactly what I wanted, and just went the extra mile.I especially loved their lower prices that is stirred by their heart for every bride to be able to afford their dream dress. What a wonderful team to have worked with. I HIGHLY recommend them.
I fell in love with a dress I would never have picked for myself, you listened and delivered, thank you for making my dream dress journey so special, surprising and amazing! Julle span is amazing!!!
I recently got married in early October, and Fynbos Bridal Boutique made finding my dream wedding dress an absolute dream. They listened to what I wanted and acted with kindness and professionalism. I would recommend Fynbos to every bride.
Sal n honderd keer vir Fynbos Bridal Boutique aanbeveel. Die dames wat daar werk is n amazing span en weet presies wat by jou sal pas en wat nie. Ek het gaan rokke pas net om n idee te kry waarvan ek sal hou en die 2de rok wat hulle gegee het was my *droom rok*. Dankie dames. Dit was n amazing experience gewees.
Where do I even begin. Goodness, I want to thank Lizette for the fantastic service that myself and bridal party received inn December. My experience was phenomenal! Lizette has bubbly for us, glasses, she was welcoming and friendly. We managed to get my party of 6 seated and my sister on a video call. We were having so much fun, we didn't even realise the time. I tried on a few dresses and eventually, I said yes to the dress! I believe the dress is one of the biggest parts of the wedding and with Lizette, I was able to find my dream dress easily while having fun. Please visit her. she is simply amazing.
Die experience, vriendelik staff en obviously my droom trou rok na maande se soek. Ek is ongelooflik dankbaar vir die feit dat julle deel kon wees van die belangrikste dag in my lewe. Die rok en oorbelle het alles net prentjie mooi gemaak en my man se trane omtrent laat loop. Verewig dankbaar.
Ek het so ‘n wonderlike, streslose ondervinding met Fynbos gehad. Ek wou baie graag ‘n custom design gehad het. Sommer ‘n prentjie wat ek op Pinterest gekry het. In my wildste drome nie gedink dat hulle dit op die fynste detail so presies sal regkry nie. Ek was regtig verbaas en dolverlief op my rok.
