Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
Every Wedding is special to us but the wedding of Nina and Matt was simply beautiful. Nina, a wedding planner herself ensured everything was exceptionally sophisticated. The style and colour scheme of her wedding theme, both classic and elegant, echoed our interiors. We always boost that our lush tree-lined courtyard, sweeping staircase and dramatic ballroom provide the ideal backdrop for those important wedding photographs and her wedding certainly qualified that. Her wedding photographer, Nadine Van Biljon, captured the elegance of the day perfectly and we are delighted to have these photographs to use as part of our wedding collateral.
