Wedding on 13th October 2013

Dear Jonathan, Wesley and supporting team

We would love to thank you so much for providing our fabulous wedding with a setting so spectacular.

We fell in love with your venue from the first day that Tshidi Hadebe (planner) suggested we go view it about a year ago. Your venue sells itself with its uncanny intimacy and a garden so lush and gorgeous it can only be described as a piece of heaven on earth.

Your service to us on days leading up to the wedding and on the day, not only to us but the guests as well, made us all feel like royalty. At no point did anyone have to stress about the finer details of the day, so many people said that they had never seen a Bride so relaxed and composed. You and your staff tackled every challenge with such grace that we would recommend you to anyone.

The food was absolutely delicious and simple enough to accommodate all our guests, from the fussiest toddler to the old school gogo lol. Everyone has been raving about the food – please send our compliments to the Chef and staff!

As for the accommodation (Bridal Suite and guest rooms) we were blown away and the only thing that managed to get us out of bed was your scrumptious breakfast.

You will be our first port of call should we ever require a venue and all our friends have been convinced that Thornbirds is the wedding venue they would choose if and when they decide to get married. We can truly say that Thornbirds is truly the BEST venue in the Southern Hemisphere without a second thought.

We wish you all the success and blessings for your future endeavours.

Dear Nicole and Wesley

A brief note to you both to say a most sincere thank you for the invitation to your function last night.
It was absolutely wonderful. Every decor detail and every rose and gift spoke of your kindness and your hospitality. The food was absolutely delicious, a real banquet. Thank you for including us. Lali (the film
director) and Ric ( SOJO director ) were thoroughly impressed, and Lali managed to get many great shots.

I won a Thornbirds stay, about which I am thrilled… and look forward to bringing my husband, David, there one weekend; do I just pre-book through the office? Thank you so much.

We would especially like to wish you, Nicole, a very happy and special birthday today. May you be richly blessed, and have many happy returns! All the best for your year ahead.

We look forward to seeing you soon, with some of our SOJO plans. Thank you once again for everything.

Thank you once again for everything. We actually don’t have words of expressing how we feel about your handling of our important occasion.
You have really made us proud and we were truly honoured to have Thornbirds as our wedding venue… It was a perfect venue for a perfect day!

We are continuously getting such wonderful feedback from our family members and friends, about the venue, the food, the service, handling of guests, my goodness … everyone was really overwhelmed by everything…

Stanley and I are TRULY grateful for your patience, and co-operation during the preparations.
We also appreciate your professional manner of handling things and also driving the focus on our important day .
You guys were truly amazing!

We will certainly like to participate in both opportunities of nominating Thornbirds for the prestigious awards as well as the Star of the day Day wedding supplier.
Your company deserves both these awards without a shadow of doubt.

Thank you very much!
