Jade, we cannot thank you enough for all your help and going the extra mile. Without you, it would’ve been a mess. We really appreciate the hard work and warm spirit of your team. I really think that, that is what sets Collisheen apart. We didn’t feel like we were ‘just another wedding’.

In terms of the feedback, our expectations were met 100 times over. Everyone was so professional and helpful. While we weren’t able to eat too much (nerves and general excitement), I have heard from others that the food was delicious. Also, our vegans/vegetarians were equally satisfied.

We will definitely send you pics, once we get them from Max and will see that Collisheen is tagged :)

Thank you again Jade (and your team), we could not have done it without you. You are so good at what you do and we wish you all the best! Will definitely pop in again when we are home!

Warm regards,

Dr & Mrs Prah

Jade there are absolutely no words to describe how incredibly magical you made our wedding day!

We couldn't of asked for a better venue either. Thank you to your staff at Collisheen Orchid house for being so professional and attentive.

The food was outstanding, if my wedding dress allowed me to go back for seconds or even thirds I would of, it was that delicious.

Jade thank you for being with Jaryd and I through every step of the wedding planning process. I have never met someone as organised as you. Thank you for ensuring there was a calm yet scheduled atmosphere. You were my guiding light on the day always making sure I was happy, calm and had everything I needed. Nothing is too much for you and you always think of everything. Jade my day would never of been the same without you.

We still have friends and family telling us it was the best wedding they have ever been to!

Jaryd and I shall definitely be keeping in touch with you and letting you know how the honey moon went.

Once the wedding pictures are ready I will send them to you and will be posting and tagging Collisheen in them.

Thank you again for making us the two happiest newly weds ever!

The Food was great - very shocked at quantity and quality for price - so were guests ! The starter quantities were huge and they tasted great, everyone loved the mains and brownies and the broc and cauli

Everyone loved the venue, and the organisation and thought you (Jade) was/were amazing - one guest actually said they were disappointed they didn't get married there !!

I must admit I think if we went with any of the other venues we saw our wedding would have been a massive mess and not complete in any way with my schedule and lack of time to plan etc - The Collisheen documents helped us immensely and honestly we wouldn't have thought of doing half the necessities without the forms (and you) reminding us.

Perfect venue for a couple who are not keen on planning a wedding and who have very little time to spare.

Thank you so much for absolutely everything. You were an absolute gem, we couldn't have done this without all your support.

Whilst we were clients, you made this so much more personal and for that we thank you from the bottoms of hearts.

Needless to say, it was absolutely awesome, everybody commented on the venue, the food, the cake, the set up etc., etc., I've asked them to email me their comments from across the lands, and as soon as I be these, I will post to your Facebook page.

Absolutely the best day of our lives. Everything was PERFECT at Orchid House and nothing was too much trouble for Jade , Siphiwe and the amazing team. They had thought of every eventuality, which they had a solution for and they were very accommodating throughout the whole wedding preparation. They are efficient, experienced, thoughtful and professional.

From Jades expertise to the delicious food and outstanding staff they went above and beyond to make our day magical with treasured memories.There was no request that was too much. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for a spectacular day – you should all be so proud of yourselves for your venue and it really has got that personal touch which makes it that much more special. Thank you thank you thank you

Evening Amanda ,

Where to begin....... maybe saying thank you . Thank you firstly to God that he chose you to walk this path with me and for being my coordinator . Wouldn't change a thing. All just fell into place .

Thank you for making it all easy , yes at the beginning I was a bit stressed ,but after our first meeting I was at ease there was that peace. Funny thing is after a year of meeting Zee I started planning my wedding . Had my laptop and had a document set up of everything that I wanted from the time you enter the venue , from the trees to the garden, the Chapel to the live band , the reception. All to the T. God just did it all as I had prayed for and much more . He completely outdid himself , looking back I just don't know how ..I'm still amazed.

Thank you for making my day super special
Thank you for your time
Thank you for your patience through it all
Thank you for lending me your ear when I wanted to talk and when I wasn't too sure of things. Be it early am or after working hours . Nothing was ever too big for you .
Thank you for always doing it with a smile
Thank you for being my super Women
Thank you for calming me down and always reassuring me that all will be perfect.

From the Chapel it was all perfect . To My love garden , for the decor and you going that extra mile to get the extra stuff for me to add on. You really didn't have to, but you did. That meant so much to me. The reception area. Wow wow . Blown away . You really did a great job. Thank you so much . When you said I must trust you, you will not dissapoint..oh my you just did that . It's what I had imagined . Those tears were of joy, just knowing you did what I had prayed for and more

The flowers, the centre pieces ,your idea of having the 2 long tables, the table cloth, the drapping ..It was perfect . I was more than happy. People are still talking about the wedding decor venue and the food. Oh my compliments to the chef. Was mouth watering, I had a few people say Oh my Collisheen food is the best . They have attended wedding but your food is out of this World . Thank you to the team, waiters , team preparing beforehand, from the cleaning staff, parking assitant. Thank you so much for making our day beautiful.

Thank you Amanda for everything. I know people would say it's ones job, but this takes a lot of work and just also making sure outcome is perfect and its what the couple wanted.

It was that and more for us. I know when it's your day you don't remember much, but having people still calling us and just complimenting us on a job well done and just telling us how they enjoyed our wedding . Singing praises about everything and how perfect the day was . It's not just us, but it's you and your wonderful team

Thank you so much once again . Pray an overflow of blessings to you and the team.

Thank you, lots of love

Hi Amanda,

The wedding was so beautifully done. Overall the experience was lovely. It was a fair tale wedding and having Ann as an MC was the best move ever. The waitresses were on the ball for the whole function.

Everything was stunning 😊 Thank you for your endless efforts, love, support and understanding. I know I had asked a lot of questions but you never got tired of answering them which made me feel comfortable with working with you. There wasn't a doubt that my function would go well.

We loved our wedding and the feedback from our guests was amazing too. Some people said it's the best wedding they've ever been to or that it was the wedding of the year.

The venue, service, food and thought to detail were exceptional and I know that comes down to you. Thanks for being so awesome-it had truly been an honour having you be a part of our wedding.

Hi Amanda,

Avir and I would like to thank you personally for making our wedding a memorable one.

Everything was outstanding and even all service provided was exceptionally well done. It was a challenge day for both Avir and I as my mom didn't make it to the wedding as she was very ill and hospitalized and his dad being sick.

Food was best rated by our guests as they enjoyed it. I was told the dessert was amazing and tasty. So that won their hearts the food was excellent. Set up and The Boma was too beautiful and our guests enjoyed the garden as well.

I really Thank Collisheen for everything and relieving our stress. Everything was well organized and ur team was on the ball 😊😊

Collisheen will always be special to us!

Please take care and all the best 💐

Even though some of the tartlets melted it looked like a piece of art J. The food was great. I had raving reviews about the canapès as well as dinner & dessert.

Jade, you made everything so easy from start to finish. Your great attitude and wonderful, caring personality made us feel so special. Your ease and manner with our guests was heart-warming. You are truly the best wedding co-ordinator a girl can have.

Dear Jade,

Wow! Wow! Wow!
Mikey and I are absolutely blown away by how perfect our wedding day was because of you.
I always knew from the first time we met you that we were in good hands, we can see that creating the perfect day for your couples means so much to you.

We wouldn't change a single thing or service that you provided. Everything was literally spot on.

Your warm welcomes every time we saw you, friendly emails, always willing to assist with anything- even things you didn't have to help with but you still did. Helping me set up the last bit of decor I just couldn't get around to doing, keeping not only me calm but my maid of honor and everyone around us calm when my dress zip popped. 😜
Just everything. From the moment we met you almost a year before our wedding till the moment we said goodbye when I popped in on Sunday the 7th May after our big day.

You are the reason Collisheen is the place to get married. I have already highly recommended Collisheen and will always and forever continue to do so, just know that EVERYTHING was perfect.

Food...... just brilliant. Please send our compliments to the Chefs. We loved it all! Friendly and helpful waiters and even the guy that did the draping and lighting. We walked in there to nothing but smiles and warm welcomes. I wish I could mention everyone by name but this does apply to all at Collisheen, Orchid House. A place where memories of our most precious day will stay.

Thank you so much for everything. Wish I could give you all a big hug. Mikey and I send all our love and we wish you all the best with your future couples. There is no doubt that they will love you to bits!

Hello ... my dear friend.

This email is well overdue. I trust that you are WELL. I just wanted to say a HUGE, ENORMOUS, GIGANTIC T H A N K Y O U ! From the bottom of Martin & my heart.

You served us every step of the way in making our
special day everything we dreamed and hoped for it to be. The ceremony was gorgeous. The timing on the entrances were on point. The chapel and boma was gorgeous. i just hope Julz took plenty of pics of the incredible job you and your team did. AND the FOOD! Everyone is talking about the food!!! Sadly to say - Martin and I didnt even get to taste the starters at the cocktail hour. Image removed by sender. *:( sad But we were more upset 'coz we didn't even get to have dessert -and everyone talked about the soji! So your next indian menu - we're crashing)

thank you again, with much love:

Fantastic was his favorite word. I never knew how hard it is too loose someone after 40 years of marriage. I am so heartbroken. Go home tonight and hug your love-ones as life is so short. I would give anything just to have 5 more minutes with him.

Our wedding day was truly AMAZING, even though we ran a LITTLE late (albeit, everyone should always wait patiently for the bride). Our guests to this day, still compliment the day, the venue, the food, the atmosphere and the deco. We want to pass our heartfelt thank-you, to you and your team for their contribution, in making our day so special. Please extend our gratitude to them.

The food was divine, the butterflies in our stomachs on the day can attest to this. Our guests... much more credible witnesses in our opinion, attest to this as well, to this day lol. :-).

Thank you once again for hosting us, our family and friends.

We definitely felt the LOVE at Collisheen Estate.

We have not received photo's from our photographer as yet, however I have attached hereto some snaps from the day, some taken with cellphones.

Good morning Amanda

Happy new year!! I hope this one is an amazing year for you and brings you so much happiness!

Greg and I cannot put into words how absolutely perfect our wedding day was. We truly had the most amazing day and everything ran so smoothly. The décor was indescribable, it was exactly what we envisioned and the little details you added made our fairy-tale wedding come to life.
The food has to be mentioned, as all the guests were raving about how incredible it was!
Thank you so much for all your help, not only on the wedding day, but in all the emails and planning you did beforehand.
On the day of the wedding you went above and beyond to ensure everything ran as planned and to make sure Greg and I were happy. I remember very clearly starting to walk down the aisle and walking past you, to hear you say “you look beautiful, take a deep breath and enjoy”. Really was something that goes above and beyond your call of duty.
Thank you for the passion and excitement you showed, it really made wedding planning a breeze and left me so relaxed on our wedding day!

Again I would like to say thank you thank you, we would recommend Collisheen and yourself to everyone, as it was and always will be the best day of our lives! We will send photos as soon as we have received them.

Thank you Amanda and team!

Wishing you all health, love and happiness in this new year!

After the wedding, and reflecting back to the day. The weather truly was a let down but nontheless Vinay and I until today speak so proudly of the service providers we chose. Collisheen is such a beautiful wedding venue and my set ups were truly done up beautifully. You were absolutely amazing and I couldn't thank you enough for everything you have done for us. Our guests raved about the food and enjoyed every bit of it. Some of my guests even referred to the Boma as been a fairytale venue perfect for a Princess and I felt that way on the day!

I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your patience, guidance and most of all for just been someone we could trust entirely! Collisheen really delivered xx

Looking back now, we had a beautiful wedding despite the rain and that's all we wanted. A day our guests would remember.

Thank you Amanda and may God bless you always x

You helped make our wedding so incredibly special!! From making sure the minister got there on time (I heard about that), shouting at the best man (heard about that too!), making sure I was relaxed, the guys had food, we had food, Harry Potter chats - the list could go on!

During the wedding Immanuel and I took a moment and walked outside the venue just to take it all in... and it was incredible. We're still on a post wedding high!

Our honeymoon was incredible! Then work got in the way - which is why this is super late!

We'll be sure to tag Collisheen in our wedding photos the moment they come out. I think Tanya has put up a little sneaky picture or two on Facebook, will check and tag you guys. :)

Hi Amanda

We were meant to get back to you but we were still trying to recover from the wedding festivities .

Where do we begin .Personally ,I have never had so much fun ,merely because I had nothing to stress about at all .The venue was just too perfect, the service from your staff was amazing ,the decor. everything was just on point . We did not get to eat ...(nerves were all over ) but our guests cant stop mentioning how the food was tasty and there was just continuous supply of food especially on the starters..by the time they got to the main meal they were already full! I think they enjoyed the food mostly at the wedding!! We are still receiving messages and calls about how everything was well coordinated and so beautiful. Their exact words were ''we have never seen such beauty''

We would like to thank you and your staff for the amazing setup and for ensuring that our day was as beautiful as we were :)

Special thanks to you Amanda for treating us like we are your only customer, despite the health conditions you are on..we continuously pray for you.

I just want to repeat the weekend of the 29th.....like can it be the 29th of October everyday ?!!!

Thanks again Amanda for everything .

Hi Amanda!

I apologise for the exceptionally late email! I decided to ignore my phone for a bit and enjoy some time with my new hubby and his family on a little vacation around South Africa. I am back in Hong Kong now and can get back into life! Enough of the celebrations for now ;)

I cannot thank you enough for your patience and kindness throughout the entire wedding planning. You and the team where so helpful with everything even on the morning of the wedding with the tent struggle up until the end of the reception with helping us get everything and everyone out of there. I cannot imagine working with better and more hardworking and proffessional people throughout the planning and wedding. Especially when I was overwhelmed you guys made me feel so supported!

I don't know where to start...it was everything and more that I dreamed!! every single guest said it was the best wedding they had ever attended...some members said it was better than theirs hahahaha!

The service was on point, the food was outstanding, the decor spectacular, the venue a dream come true! I cannot fault you guys on anything. The team at Collisheen delivered beautifully and made all my dreams come true and gave my guests the most memorable experience.

I just wish it went slower...the time just flew by. I would like to say I wish I had better time management but I guess we can't have everything hehehehe! I tried my best but I did overbook myself a smidgen!

Thanks from the bottom of my heart.
much love, fond wishes and love and light

Hello Amanda,

I have been wanting to send you our heartfelt thanks for the day and all the amazing things you did for us. We had a surprise mini break and are feeling super relaxed and in awe of how wonderful you were. We honestly don't know where to start with our sincere gratitude.

The decor was amazing, amazing and thank you for organizing the chairs and runners and everything so awesomely put together and under such short time frames. My mum, my sister (gosh just about everyone at the event) are singing your praises. You seriously made the day so special and if anything went wrong we are none the wiser. Ross and I truly feel that it was a perfect day, we will love and treasure the memory forever and you are the champion that made it all possible. There is so much to thank you for, you made sure everyone was happy, everything ran so smoothly and you had a plan for every moment. The thing that will stay with me is when I heard that the cake smashed (or crashed, or split into a billion pieces) I did laugh because it was something I gave away to someone else at the last minute and of course because I love cake so much I would end up with none. Then at the reception there was a cake! It was definitely one of the kindest acts in the world to me. It was so unexpected and I will never, ever forget my cake, my unique cake patched together with kindness and care to make our day perfect. I could never have dreamed of anything more perfect and I can not thank you enough for going a million miles extra for us. I went into the planning of this pretty stress free as we were already legally married (so if the day failed at least we would have that) and never expected the rush of nerves and butterflies when it hit me, I am marrying Ross in front of everyone we love. You were so great when you were directing me down the aisle, all your kind words and funny comments and calm nature helped quell my nerves (though I am told I ran down the aisle - what can I say I was too excited to get to Ross!).

Honestly the food was delicious and perfect, my sister is still raving about the tastiest soji and fruit salad she has ever had. She is so picky about cut fruit she was blown away (she keeps asking how you guys made it so mind blowing). My grandfather complimented the biryani (high praise indeed) and Ross is kicking himself for not eating haha because everyone around us can not stop talking about the food.

I joked as planning progressed with this wedding that at my next wedding I would do better, but because of you Amanda, no wedding in all the world could be more perfect than the one we had. I know it was due to you and I really can not thank you enough for the lifetime of memories that we will forever cherish. Everything exceeded expectation.

All our very best (always).

We are grateful for everything you all did to make our day special & memorable for us as well as our guests. Everyone had a lovely evening.

The decor was beautifully set up & the food divine. Compliments to the chef for a wonderful job preparing the special order of samp & beans. It was delicious. Your staff were amazing. All the guests were happy with how friendly; fast & efficient their service was. Special thanks to Lindiwe & everyone involved.

The bridal salon was perfectly set up. All my stress melted away the moment I stepped onto the premises. Amanda was amazing through the whole planning process & on the day. She is a star.

We will send you some pictures the moment we have some.

Good morning Natasha

Thank you for the wishes.

Wow, the wedding was amazing, the venue out of this world. To quote my bride, it was a dream she didn’t want to wake up from.

Every single component of the service from collisheen was remarkable. The Food, I heard only rave reviews. unfortunately my bride and I didn’t get time to indulge due to the excitement of the wedding.

We will give you a better description once I speak to her later. Special mention to Amanda, for sterling the job, she is such a sweetheart. Real ambassador of collisheen.

Will send you the pictures, as soon as get them.

Dear Amanda,

We would like to extend our sincere thanks to you. You are an amazing individual who helped contribute to what many of our guests consider the wedding of the year.

Your dedication, commitment and ability to access situations during the day was superb and we want to say thank you.

Our guests loved the day, everything was perfect from the start till the end. Our parents also allude to your incredible ability and mentioned you had a good watch on everything.

Please also extend our thanks to the rest of the Collisheen staff and family.
The service was truly world class and a further reinforcement of your organisations commitment to excellence and high service delivery.

We will send pictures when they become available and are very open to providing a review or testimonial should one be required.

They say a happy wife means a happy life and I am so glad my wife and myself had the time of our lives on that day, which has set a great precedent going into our marriage.

Thanks again.

Much love

Hi Natasha,

I really wanted to personally Thank Amanda and everyone for making sure that my day was as close to perfect as possible and you guys definitely succeeded. It was my dream venue from the start and it completely lived up to and exceeded all my expectations.

All the staff was amazing and so helpful and as for the food ... Divine ! You know Indian people are very picky when it comes to the food they eat, but you guys once again delivered !

Unfortunately the only thing that was not in my favour on the day was the weather and we didn't get any of the pics that I really wanted, but we are hoping to have a mock wedding shoot someday in the near future at the one and only Collisheen if possible.

With that being said you guys are definitely my hero and I would like to Thank each and everyone at the Collisheen for making Durelle and my wedding day such a success.

It was definitely my fairy-tale come true !

PS. I am already planning our 10year Wedding Anniversary at the Collisheen ... so you guys better be around 10 years from now ;)

We don't even know where to start...Amanda our wedding coordinator is simply amazing and we cannot stress that enough. She is so hard working and dedicated. she is the most friendly person you will meet and has such a deep passion for her job which is exactly what you need in a coordinator. Every aspect of the wedding was perfect and exactly what we wanted. the staff were so professional and helpful. The collisheen is definitely one of the best places to have a wedding and i would recommend them to anyone. We got married on the 9th of April and people are still commenting on how beautiful everything was.

Dear Natasha and Amanda,

On behalf of Pavan, myself and my now very big family, I would like to thank you for everything that you did to ensure that we had the perfect wedding. Amanda assured us that our day would go smoothly and it sure did. Amanda, I heard that you were horrified when you saw the rain come down at exactly 2:30 pm, but I can promise you, we did not let that stop us from celebrating (as I’m sure your staff would have told you ).

Our guests thoroughly enjoyed the food, especially the biryani and the spinach feta and butternut lasagne. Thanks Natasha and Amanda for recommending this, and hats off to your amazing chef! The service from all your staff was outstanding. There was always someone around whenever we needed something and we thank them for being so efficient, making sure that things ran smoothly and taking such good care of our guests.

Everyone enjoyed the bar, which was a surprise for them as this is not something we usually have at Indian weddings. The bar staff were great and we hope our guests didn’t give them too much trouble 

I know that we had a lot of requests. Thank you to both of you for always taking the time to answer each and every question we had, and for putting both my Mums minds at ease.

A huge thank you to Lindiwe who was overseeing everything on the day. She went above and beyond her call of duty to make sure that Pavan and I were okay and that everything happened according to plan. We are ever so grateful to her.
Our guests can’t stop talking about how much fun they had at our reception, it was one big party, which is exactly what we all wanted. Everyone told me that my wedding day will be over in a blink, it will all be a blur and the bride usually doesn’t get to enjoy the day, but let me tell you, this bride and groom had an absolute blast and we remember every detail!

I will always remember our beautiful day, and it was such a pleasure to have had it at Collisheen.

Take care.
Best wishes to you and all your staff,

Deeva & Family.

Hi Natasha,

Our wedding went far beyond our imaginations and expectations. Everything went so well. People are still raving about it. We wanna send our sincerest appreciation to the Collisheen for giving us an outstanding venue and service on our big day.

From the get-go when we made a decision to go with the BOMA, the attention we got while doing the planning has been nothing short of perfect. Amanda really made the planning and coordination a breeze, and went as far as accommodating us for a last minute food tasting a week before the wedding. We can't thank her and the chef enough for being so considerate. It's amazing how delicious the food was for such a large crowd, you can tell that every item was prepared with such precision and thought. The serving staff and Lindiwe, (the overseer) were so professional and friendly, and were able to answer any questions or suggestions we had on site.

Overall, we are extremely pleased with the service from Collisheen and we would not have a problem recommending it to other couples, the warmth of this place was felt by every guest who made it to our wedding.

Thankyou,

Good Morning Wayne,

I am not too sure where to begin!

Firstly, it was like winning the lotto when Jade walked back into our lives! She was faultless throughout.

The wedding ran like clockwork and Jade had everything so under control that all we did was pitch up and thoroughly enjoy the day.

The food was outstanding, hot and served so quickly by your efficient and friendly staff, they were great.

We had friends attend the wedding who were married at the Orchard House four years ago and they said it has just got better and better.

Shannon and Daniel have had a wedding day that they will remember and treasure for ever, thank you all so much.

We honestly cannot thank you and everyone else who helped make our day so perfect - all of our friends and family have raved about the wedding , from the venue, food and general vibe. There's nothing we would change, I really meant it when I said that I don't think there is a better wedding venue!

You're just something else though Jade ... wow - executing all of that so amazingly while pregnant and no doubt tired - Collisheen is VERY, VERY LUCKY to have you there. Soooooo happy you came back in time for our wedding. I felt so bad that when we were going to sleep that you were still awake setting up for the next day! I think you're part machine, part woman! Hahahahha :)

Really appreciate you helping with the juice on dress scene!!! Hahahha it all adds to a cool story and proof that no matter what you do, something can and probably will go wrong.

Everybody enjoyed the food tremendously, please send our compliments to the Chef and kitchen staff, everything was perfect, tasty and enough.
The ground staff was friendly and very helpful, I must compliment Simpiwe for staying till the last minute and he was there early Sunday morning helping us again.

Jade, and then I must thank you, I’m close to crying, you were such a rock! Despite the tension you dealt with the weather situation and just took control of everything.
I knew I could trust you and I told you that day, Jade do what you have to do and you really delivered. The wine and cheese brought into the venue was stunning and there were never an awkward moment.
Jade, I can understand why they asked you to come back, this is your passion, not just a job! You were professional, friendly and in control.
With a nervous bride and mother, family members, photographers, videographers, rain, you stay calm and make sure we receive the wedding we wish and paid for!

I assure you that we will come and show you the pictures and just say hello as we visit Ballito regularly.

We wish you success, happiness and a healthy baby. Please look after yourself and looking forward to see you soon

Good Day Natasha & Amanda

I was extremely impressed with the service, treatment and patience of everyone at the Collisheen Estate on Saturday and the whole year prior to the wedding.

You guys at Collisheen are exceptionally remarkable and efficient in everything that you all do.

I must say that my wedding was a great success and I owe it all Amanda, Lindi and you Natasha.

Lindi and Amanda have been excellent in everything that they have done up until the end of my wedding and I really can’t say how thankful Leon and I are.

The food was excellent, I promise that I am telling you the truth, everybody that was at the wedding complimented us on the food.

Collisheens service and waiters on the wedding day were excellent, they were pleasant and extremely helpful.

Please pass my greatest thank you and appreciation to Lindi for helping with everything that went on, on the wedding day.

I will send some pictures as soon I receive a few.

Take care, and thanks again.

Hi Amanda and Natasha

The wedding was spectacular. I enjoyed every moment of it.
Amanda is an absolute Gem. She was with us every step of the way even though she was supposed to be on Maternity leave. Her attention to detail is amazing and she was such a pleasure to work with. It is more than just a job for her and shows in her work as she went far and beyond what was expected. The decor was stunning and the guests couldn’t stop talking about the food.
All the staff were so professional and helpful. Lindiwe who assisted us on the day was a star, she knew exactly what to do and was so efficient. Everything went off without a glitch and according to plan.

I would just like to thank Collisheen and the amazing Staff for all their hard work and dedication in helping us pull of our dream wedding. I have attached a few pictures – still awaiting the final prints from the photographer.

Thank you for your time, the countless emails and calls, whatsapps, you are such as brilliant person and easy to work with and understanding. You made it a pleasure and never deny us any request we asked of you.

We are a bit sad that we won't see you again, BUT, we were serious about wanting to start our own company to do card designs and printing, wedding pamphlets, table favors, etc, so we may give you a shout when that kicks off :)

So lovely to hear from you!

We are receiving endless complements about the wedding being so organised and out of this world amazing! The food was amazing (just like mum's!) and we thoroughly enjoyed the evening so much, everything was just perfect! Thank you so much for all your hard work, you really took away any stress that myself and Nevin had, so we were super relaxed! :-) xxx for that!

We had an amazing time, it felt like just a dream the next morning, pity it's all over in a flash though.

Please give complements to the chefs for their amazing food and anybody that played a part on our special day!

It was definitely a day to remember forever and we will always be thankful for all that you and Collisheen have done.

My only disappointment (nothing to do with Collisheen!) was that my candy bags somehow got lost in transit so now I have so much of sweets at home!

I wish to renew our vows there in I don't know how many years lol, that's how much we loved absolutely everything, the venue itself was just breathtaking.

Have a lovely New Year! All the best for 2016!

Good day Amanda,

Firstly we would to extend an appreciate to you Amanda, for the warmth, the love you showed us from Day one, you made my life so much easier, you took us through and also reminded us on certain issues that we didn’t think about, so really your expertise in this section are impeccable,
You were always available and make sure that I felt like the only client whilst I know you have so much clientele, I really appreciate you and also extend my gratitude to the Collisheen Estate family, you are really are the best team ever, the hospitality we received when we arrived at the venue together
With my Brides maids, the Bridal salon was perfect, we were served with Drinks and they even went beyond to asks if we would like some tea, and it was fruit platter, then the sliced cakes and champagne, we really felt spoilt for choice, pass my appreciation to the Chef as well, he outdone himself, the guests still want me to take back to the 28/11/2015, and also your prices were affordable, My Dad even asked on the day when he saw the spacious venue, how much I had pay, the venue looked absolutely beautiful, the chapel looked beautiful as well, and also pass my gratitude to Lindiwe who coordinated on the day, she was excellent, the rest of the staff were really accommodative, even as I was sitting at the my table, they will come and asks if they may dish for me, open my champagne, even offered to put my bouquet in the water, outstanding service from the team.

I have only one regret though from myself and my husband, we didn’t get to eat the food because of the excitement we had no appetite at all, but we consoled ourselves that at least we ate from the food tasting, he still wants me to arrange another food tasting…. But that goes to show how excellent you guys are, we really enjoyed the day and will definitely recommend it to anyone and I’m sure my guests will never forget the experience.

Thank you so much, keep up the Good work, if I were to choose again, I still will choose Collisheen Estate and I am glad I didn’t even had to look elsewhere cause you provide the best venue, best service!!! Well done.

Good day,

Firstly we would like to take this opportunity to personal thank you for the excellent services we received on our specially day on the 12 of December, yourself and your organisation indeed made our day specially.

Thanks once again for your planning services and the working hand in hand with our MC.

We hand a “wonderful day” as our main song was saying.

Keep it up for the good work, we glad that we chose Collisheen Estate as our wedding venue. No one told us about Collisheen but we are happy that the board on R102 led us to a Wonderful Venue that led to a “Wonderful Day”

The meal was wonderful.

Once again Thanks a lot Jade, hope to see you again.

Regards,

Hi! Amanda

The wedding was truly a fairytale wedding, it was everything we dreamed of and MORE. Thank you so much for being such an amazing co-ordinator. Collisheen is so blessed to have you. Our guests were blown away, saying that it was the wedding of the year, they have never been to such a beautiful wedding and as for the venue people are still raving about it.

As you know with “indian guests” it is extremely difficult to please everyone and especially when it comes to food everyone turns into a renowned chef. When it comes to weddings the food is the hottest topic to talk about. Our guests were surely spoilt for choice, we were told that they felt so important with the individual “fancy” starters and dessert that were elegantly presented delicious. They loved all the food (meat and veg) and it was just perfect. The waiters were always around when they were needed and throughout the night were attending to the guests. Please relay a very BIG THANK YOU to your amazing Chefs and staff for outstanding service, top class and efficiency. Collisheen is really on a league of its own and no matter how crazy it may get what I admire about you and your staff is that you are so organized and composed that no one would ever know even if there was a problem.

Despite the rain which persisted the venue still showcased its beauty and we were able to capture such stunning pictures. Thank you Amanda, without you the wedding would not have went off without a glitch. You worked so well with the rest of the service providers which took away all of our stress.

We are so blessed that we had the opportunity to have our special day at the Collisheen, it will forever be cherished and I know that our guests will also remember the happy memories we shared.

Please pass our gratitude onto your Boss and tell him that he is truly blessed to have you work there. You create such a beautiful and pleasant aura. Keep up the excellent service.

Hope you have a lovely day. Take care of yourself and your baby boy.

Kind Regards,

Hi Amanda,

Everything was perfect and went well!! The guest said the food was amazing and the dessert was even better. I always knew the Collisheen was a winner  The fruit platter and goodies in the bridal room was great. I was too nervous to eat though 

Thank you again for all your help including your team at the Collisheen!

Hello Jade,

Oh My Gucci!!! Where do we begin??!!! It's been 3 months of total bliss and we really don't want to wake up from this beautiful dream.

We will never thank you enough for all your help, guidance and kindness. You really made our day a truly memorable one and 3 months later we're still going on about it. We're grateful to your entire Collisheen team for delivering exactly as we imagined and more. As for the wedding cake, we have no words!!!! That was my highlight. I sincerely pray that God blesses you abundantly for putting your heart into making us the happiest Mr & Mrs on our big day. We love you for it.
PS: I am a freelance writer by profession and I feel it will do you and the Collisheen Estate that I write a proper thank you when we get back home.

We'll have to catch up with you when we're back from our mini-moon (we back on the 8th December). I promise.

Hi Amanda,

I don't know where to start but wow what a beautiful wedding I had. I wish I could do it over and over again. The food was so divine. People that were in my wedding can't stop talking about the food and decor. The starters were to die for. The main course was wow even though I did get a chance to finish my food (sad ). Your staff was on point always around us. My wedding made us look rich. People hate us now Lol. I had a best time of my life.
Thank you so much Amanda. You are the best. I love you so much. Keep up the good work. Your your dad and your staff.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. That's all I can say. You made our wedding super special and your attention to Marc and I just made it so special. You are just an exceptional person and Collisheen is very blessed to have you. Marc has made mention of this to your Manager so he had better treasure you.

Our family and friends cannot stop gushing on about the food, canapes and level of service at the wedding. The comments about Collisheen on the night and especially your commitment Jade will never be forgotten. You and your team made an exemplary impression and that is why guests keep on coming back. Know that we will always continue to value the high level of service excellence that your establishment puts out. We are incredibly happy and proud to have had our wedding at Collisheen. Everything was immaculately set out and according to our specifications. You are just fantastic!

Hi Amanda,

The Wedding, where do I start? It was such a beautiful day, it exceeded our expectations.
The service was so friendly and inviting, food was so delicious and fresh. Décor was so beautiful, just the way I had imagined it and more. The flowers were gorgeous and complimented our dresses so well. Everything was just so WOW!, perfectly planned and absolutely amazing.
It was truly as magical as I've always dreamed off.

We send our heartfelt thanks to you Amanda and the team, a job really well done. And to think we almost cancelled such a beautiful day. I would highly recommend your venue and services to anybody. Some of our friends have already asked for details for future weddings and we have gladly forwarded it to them.

The memories of this day will forever be in our hearts.

Thanking you again Amanda for all your assistance and making our day as special as it was.

First of all thank you so much for all you did for us on our wedding day, you were absolutely amazing and I will never be able to thank you enough! Will defs go for coffee, cake (and of course some strawberry lips) and catch up on all the honeymoon shenanigans, we are so grateful for all that you did and the bonus of making a friend:)

Our wedding was perfect, you were there from start to finish making sure everyone was in place, was dressed and knew were what was happening! From fluffing the dress to making sure I was calm the whole time, you were an absolute star:) The amount of praises we got from our guests about how well you ran everything and the set up that day are countless and the mc absolutely adored you!

Our day was absolutely perfect and we have you to thank for that:) Amanda made it look like a fairy-tale, also countless compliments on how stunning the flowers and decor was!

Will make plans to meet up when we back!

Good day Amanda,

I hope that you are well.

Dennis and I are back to reality after our fairytale wedding day and honeymoon.

Everything turned out so great, really it exceeded our expectations. You managed to calm everyone when the pastor was late and guests hardly noticed, you guided the bridal party so nicely and people knew where to go and it wasn't a mess.(it's always a mess at black people's weddings and I'm glad mine wasn't messy?).
The chapel procedure was on point.
Reception was so lovely, decor we were so pleased with how it turned out. Food was amazing, from starters to dessert! On the point of food, my husband and I would like to request to come to Collisheen and have this meal that we missed out on because of all the nerves. Really, everyone is raving about the food which we actually didn't enjoy because of the nerves of speeches, first dance etc. still to come, it's tough being the bride and groom!
We really also appreciate how well you managed to control the bar tab, that was a huge concern of ours and it worked out so well!

I know you do many weddings and it may become procedural for you to co-ordinate, but really you are the best there and your work speaks for itself! We truly thank you from the bottom of our hearts, Our wedding was so special and the best day of our lives!

Warmest regards,

Dear Jade,

Just a little note to thank you for a superb ad splendid function at the orchid house.
I have been inundated with calls from guests who have attended the function and all have given me super feedback.
You have been so gracious and excellent in the manner you assisted me in making this wedding a memorable one. I am so sad since it’s been over, I honestly feel we could have gone on longer and enjoyed more...lol!!

I had a gentlemen at church on Sunday who told me he was there to view the venue on Thursday morning and he saw the decor, and he wanted to know about the meals and service etc., I have encouraged him to book the venue and told him about the high standard of service he will receive.
Also a special thank you to your wonderful staff and those who found the bracelet as well, it was so appreciated.

Once again, thank you so much, It has been an immense pleasure working with you for this wedding.

We have never looked back since the day we made the booking at Collisheen, everything went smoothly and whenever we had a crisis, you always knew how to sort it out.

Hope you're well! So sorry for the delay in sending this email-wanted to make sure I included everything I could think of J

Firstly just to say again a massive thank you to you for being the absolute best wedding co-ordinator ever! You made our day so special and we didn't have to worry about a thing - you have no idea how amazing that feels on the day, to know that everything is being taken care of! You being there, from meeting with us before the wedding, advice on menu's and décor etc...all of the million emails you had to respond to, and then obviously how you ensure that the day runs so smoothly and hassle free - is honestly one of the biggest selling points for Collisheen as a Venue...they are so lucky to have you!

We have had so many calls, messages and visits with friends and family since the wedding and everyone has commented on how amazing everything was! We could not have chosen a better venue-we both loved the venue from the first time we saw it! And the food was honestly out of this world! From the simple things like snacks and canapés to the full menu - everything was amazing!! Definitely hands down the best prawn curry this side of the world! Everything was amazing though - the food has been the most spoken about thing from our wedding, so please give a huge thank you to your chefs - they were spectacular!

The staff were also so efficient and friendly, so a big thanks to them. We didn't have one issue with the staff, they were all so friendly and helpful.

We are really so ecstatic with everything about our wedding, and would love to do anything to help on the recommendations side for you if you need - just let me know where to put reviews etc... :)

I've attached the photo tasters I have so far- the rest should be ready next week so will email to you as soon as they come through. Apparently there'll be a pic in The Mercury today too

I hope this finds you well,

We got married at the Orchid House on Easter Saturday this year and I just wanted to write and let you know what an exceptional job Jade did for us. From day one she has been extremely professional and so helpful; I planned the wedding by myself as all my family and bridesmaids are overseas and Jade was so supportive in helping me make decisions but really emphasizing that it was our day and she would do whatever she could to make it truly unforgettable for us. She is exceptionally efficient and organized with all her paperwork and made us feel so special and welcome at all times. On the big day itself she remained totally calm whilst being in control of everyone and everything (and had quite a rowdy bridal party to contend with!) She made sure that the need of every guest was met.

We are so honoured to have had the privilege of working with Jade, she is an absolute asset to your team.

I also had the good fortune of working with Amanda on the decor side of things, and would like to add that she is such a delight to work with, making us feel totally at ease for every single request we made and doing everything she could to make our day the best it could be.

The food was also absolutely delicious (I am still dreaming about those sirloin medallions!) so a big thanks to your wonderful chefs too.

As for the Orchid House, it is a really magical venue that has made a big impact on us and will forever have a very special place in our heart.

Warm Regards,

We really can't stress enough what a difference you and your team made to our day. You were all very accommodating even from the Friday when our tent arrived 3 hours late right to the very last minute trying to Shepard all of us out of the venue in the early hours of the morning - I'm sure you were all absolutely knackered but remained friendly and very professional. No matter what I say I know that it just won't do you, your staff and Collisheen any justice! You were all simply amazing! Your staff (Siphiwe and all barmen & waiters) were nothing but efficient, friendly and the professionalism that they showed is a real testament to Collisheen and are definitely the reason for it's success. We feel bad that we didn't manage to meet all the staff properly on the day but please do send our regards and thanks to them for everything that they did to make our day so perfect. All the food was absolutely delicious, it's always a bit tricky with a buffet but you pulled it off perfectly, we had loads of comments from our guests about how good it was!
We will definitely recommend Orchid House to anyone looking for a venue, it is such a little gem and the day couldn't have been any more perfect and what an amazing way for Grant and I to start our lives together as husband & wife.

I feel I have to put this in an email, to thank Collisheen and especially Jade, for a faultless wedding!

I am so pleased that we found this magnificent venue. Jade , from the start, was so helpful and understanding of all of our needs.

The weather that day ( and this is the only thing not organised by Jade!) was perfect, and that is how the day continued !

Never having arranged a wedding before, I was so taken that Jade was with us throughout the day, making sure things ran smoothly and seemingly effortlessly. I felt like a guest and could enjoy every moment. The hay bales looked so good and when I saw them covered with white serviettes, couldn’t believe how lovely they blended in with the while theme. The venue, tables and all the touches, looked amazing. All the food was beautifully presented, and apparently ( I sadly was too busy to sample all) delicious. From the canapés to the salmon, and salad and mezze platters, to the deserts, all were excellent and the compliments flew. Jade’s naked cake was exactly like the picture we sent, and tasted as good too. I must also pay compliments to all the staff who were so professional and quite unobtrusive! Sometimes one falls over or bumps into waitrons, but your staff was fantastic and so helpful.

What a perfect day. Again, thanks to Jade, staff and not forgetting chef, who pulled off a great culinary experience

Thank you so much for your kind words. I don't have the words to really say how absolutely fantastic you are at your job and how well organised everything was that made our day so special. It was absolutely brilliantly executed and we have only you to thank. Everyone who was with us on the day could not stop commenting about how they would have wanted a wedding like ours! The people raved about the food and we had only good comments from everyone.

I will only recommend that other people use Collisheen as a venue, it was probably the most fun I have ever had and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts and our families hearts as they felt so happy on the day and it was so well executed that there was no stress on our sides at all. You completely outdid yourselves - from organising the little covers on the hay bales, to the table for 2 and the room of seclusion where you arranged goodies to eat and drink, and you kept us in the loop the entire time.

Israel was amazing, we just got home last night after the most amazing wedding and honeymoon we are just beaming from ear to ear!! I also saw some of the pics from Stephen and they look amazing! Add me on Facebook and you will see a lot more of the wedding and Israel.

Please keep well and good luck with your year ahead.

We hope that you are doing very well!

We do not know where to even begin…

My husband (loving the sound of that) and I have no words to express how grateful we are to you for all you have done and for making our day magical and perfect! I have now come to the realisation that perfection is achievable! You are nothing short of amazing!

You took our vision, our idea and made it more spectacular then imagined and made it a realisation! Our wedding day was perfect!

We want to thank you for looking after everything, for keeping calm, cool and collected! I know that I have not been the easiest person to deal with during the planning and the journey leading up to our wedding, and I must apologise for being so demanding!

We want to also thank you for being there to support us at every turn on our day and ensuring that things went smoothly! Thank you for looking after my husband and ensuring that he had something to eat and drink prior to the wedding, thank you for attending to and exceeding all our requests!

On the morning of the wedding when I met with you, I saw that you are not only professional, but that you are passionate not only about your job but about each wedding that you coordinate! Our only regret on the day is that we didn’t manage to get a picture with you after the ceremony. You truly gave us peace of mind and a complete relief that everything was taken care of!

We must also say a big thank you to your team, they were excellent and our wedding would not have been the same without them. Our family were really taken care of treated like royalty, a big thank you to each one of team!

Thank you for everything, for going above and beyond, for ensuring that Wayne was taken care of, for your concern for me and our baby on board. I received a compliment from someone the other day saying that I was the most relaxed, carefree and beautiful bride that they ever saw, that I enjoyed my wedding more than most brides ever do, and I owe this to you Jade, you made it possible for me to let go of the reins. Thank you!

With our love and fondest thoughts we thank you!

Love Tish and Wayne!
