We just want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for E V E R Y T H I N G you did to make our wedding day beyond wonderful!! From the first time we met with you to discuss prices and options to our wedding day, we were always confident that we had picked the best place and the best coordinator to have our special day. Their attention to detail ensured that the wedding venue looked exactly as I had imagined it. But it’s not only the flawless execution that earns them my highest recommendation – it was also the coordinators intuitive nature – knowing when I needed a hint in the right direction when making decisions, and of course knowing how to bring my stress levels down and the most important, making sure that I enjoyed every single minute of this journey. Everyone in attendance raved about our wedding – and that is due in large part to all of the work done by all at Emdoneni Lodge I am so grateful that I was able to work with her and benefit from her expertise”. – Bride & groom
