Baie dankie!

Baie dankie vir n wonderlike funksie! Alles het so glad verloop ons wag nog dat iets negatiefs ons moet tref…

Kan net dankie se vir die vriendelikheid en die profesionele manier waarop julle al die reeelings getref het.
Dit was so maklik om net in te stap en met die verigtinge te begin. Om nie van die mooi van die saal , die kamers en julle gronde te praat nie.

Ek will sommer byvoorbaat vra dat ons na die naweek van 5 September 2020 moet kyk asb

Perfect day!

Joani and Evette and their team made my wedding day absolutely PERFECT!!!!! Every single detail of my wedding was taken care for me so that I could just relax and enjoy my day. The team are absolute professionals and artists at what they do. My photographer and guests could not stop talking about how incredibly gorgeous the venue and surrounding farm was. Lavender Hill went above and beyond for our big day and I will never forget it. Thank you for the best day of my life. I loved every second of working with you during this exciting chapter of my life. (P.S Food and accommodation were INCREDIBLE) Love you all xxx

Amazing!

What an amazing wedding venue! We knew from the first look at the chapel that this is it, this is where we wanted to start our journey. Joani you were incredible! From steaming my dress to running around with flares, you are a star! The food was delicious, the staff is helpful and friendly and the view is breathtaking. Thank you for a perfect wedding.
