Barend & myself are coming down from an incredible high of the last few days & cannot thank you enough for all your assistance during this whole process. From the very first day you set our minds at ease & guided us so effortlessly through this wonderful time. You really have a talent for ensuring everything runs smoothly & if it doesn’t – you ensure there is always a Plan B. Barend & I were so impressed by your constant communication with us, that you gave us advice that was really valuable (but also extremely helpful), that you always had everything in control & that you always went the extra mile to ensure our day was a success. And what a HUGE success it was! Every single guest we spoke too gushed about how amazing the venue was, how organised & helpful the Zorgvliet staff were, & especially how you ensured everything ran like clockwork. The groomsmen & bridesmaids were especially impressed with how at ease you made them feel on Saturday. Thank you for always answering our silly questions & making us feel as though the whole of Zorgvliet was just there for us! How lucky indeed. We can’t thank you enough & are so grateful that you were there the whole time to guide us from our engagement to our wedding day. – Marina & Barend
