Feedback from Riaan and Annelize, married at St Fort, September 2013

Jy het ons grootste verwagtinge oortref. Tot dusver is daar nie iemand wat enige complaints het nie…..almal praat van die venue hoe asemrowend dit is….en dan kan niemand uitgepraat raak oor die voortreflike kosse wat ons gehad het nie.

Another wonderful email from the bride’s mum and dad. Married at St Fort September 2013

It was all just exceptional.
To repeat some of the comments from our guests:
“Wedding of the century’
‘Best wedding ever been to’
‘Privilege to be part of the wedding’

I know these events do not happen on their own, but it all seemed effortless, which is to your great credit.The food was excellent particularly considering the remote location.Your staff were discreet, but provided an excellent service. The outside wedding service was extraordinary and hugely enhanced by the beautiful surroundings. Sincere thanks to all involved for all their hard work and a job well done.

A wonderful email from a very happy bride and groom. Married at St Fort, May 2013.

To the staff at St Fort,

What a blessing St Fort has been to us! Every step of the way was a pleasure working with you.Conrad was such a joy to be around, and we so enjoyed his enthusiasm and creative ideas. Not once did we get the impression that we were merely just another couple getting married. We could see his passion through every task he attempted, which made it an absolute pleasure to work with him. He went the extra mile. Conrad, we want to thank you for making it about us, listening to what we wanted, and for making our wedding day so special. I could honestly say, that not once did I worry about things not being in place. You really thought of everything, even things I managed to miss. You blessed us abundantly, and we are incredibly thankful for all you have done. We will gladly recommend your services to anyone.

The family so enjoyed their stay in the guesthouse. What a lovely setup and atmosphere- especially with the fire place in the cold weather.From the guests, we only received positive feedback, especially regarding Conrad and his role in coordinating the entire wedding. Even in the cool weather conditions, no- one had ANY negative comments regarding the evening.

Our biggest thanks to you all.

Stian & Anje
