Thank you for the most amazing venue for Matt and Danelle’s wedding on 12th January! Everything was absolutely perfect – someone commented; “it was the best-plated food” he had ever eaten and there were many other compliments about the chapel, the avenue and the general ambience. As you know, a wedding can be a very stressful time, however, we can honestly say that everything went so smoothly and we really owe all of your staff a huge debt of gratitude. Our accommodation was also superb and very welcoming during the wee hours of the morning. We will definitely recommend Nooitgedacht as the ideal wedding venue. – Debbie Lane

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.

After traipsing around to several other venues, we stumbled upon 401 Rozendal. Not many people had heard of it but we just knew it was the one for us. Elandi, you were absolutely magical in helping with everything and ALL our questions! It would never have been the same without you invisibly floating around on the day making sure things went smoothly. The accommodation was beautiful – and all our needs were taken care of and it made the whole event effortless from our side. Nicola was also amazing at handling our queries. All we had to do was rock up for our special day. 401 Rozendal is such a unique venue – with all it’s nooks and crannies and secret spots, even spots we took seasoned venue photographers to for the first time haha It really is a venue I would recommend to anyone who is looking for a bespoke venue with plenty accommodation on site, stunning fire room, dancefloor, reception area, rolling lawns, even an attic, and of course the magnificent views! Oh and don’t get me started on the food – 401 Rozendal insist that you use their in-house catering company – we were a bit skeptical at first, but we took the leap and to say that we were blown away would be an understatement! Two Chefs Catering is unbelievably talented! We wanted a wedding where our guests walked away and spoke about the food… and we got that!! And we also had our guests commenting on the venue! Tick tick tick!! All the boxes ticked! 401 Rozendal team – you guys are all rockstars!! Thank you for such an incredible and unforgettable experience! – Janet & Craig
