Jacques and Ellen – 26 October 2013
Like many other couples these days Jacques and Ellen’s love story began on a dating site, they met on a Christian dating website in July 2012. They started chatting via email and then met for a coffee at Mugg & Bean. And for them that was that!! “We’ve both been waiting so long for our soul mate, God has given us to each other and this is the happiest time of our lives!” says Ellen. They got engaged on Christmas Eve last year and both decided they wanted a Bush Wedding. Something Romantic and Traditional. They got married at Intundla Game Lodge & Bush Spa on Saturday 26 October 2013.
Wow our wedding at Intundla Game Lodge was everything we hoped for and dreamed off. Intundla was the first venue we visited and it stole our hearts immediately. Jacques and I love the bush and we wanted to get married in a romantic setting and a place where our guests could stay over and party the night away. Intundla was just what we were looking for. It was peaceful, beautiful and romantic. It fitted in perfectly with our theme – traditional and romantic. Intundla was also child friendly, which is so important to us as we have many nieces and nephews we wanted to be part of our special day!
Everything went perfect on our special day! The chapel made a beautiful traditional setting for our ceremony.
The refreshing drinks served at the bar were enjoyed by all our guests whilst we were taking photos. Our guests could relax around the pool, catch the Currie cup final and the kids had a fantastic time playing in the garden.
Our reception in the Hippo room was breathtaking, the décor we chose matched the décor in the hall perfectly. The food was out of this world! We actually wish we ate more that night than we did. The kiddies were even treated with hot dogs & chips especially made for them.
Our guests had an awesome time. They all complimented the food, the staff and that it was absolutely beautiful there. Many guests even canoed on Sunday morning.
”Stunning wedding at a great venue, staff at Intundla did everything possible to make this day wonderful thanks.” Sharon Kotze – Mother of the Bride
Madri and her team were present the entire weekend, we have to say a big thank you for all they did, from fetching our flowers on Friday to carrying boxes up and down. They were always friendly and helpful!! Madri thank you for making sure everything on Saturday went according to plan, you are most surely a key role at Intundla. Even for the cake that you arranged for Sunday morning for our birthday guests! You went above and beyond.
