Keith and I had our wedding at the Orchid House on 1 Dec 2023. We could not have planned our wedding within 2 months without the incredible help from Tae-Marie Hullet. We upsized the Spring Special from 60 to 110 guests. The food, service (including waiters) and venue was excellent, generous and of the highest standard. Our guests loved it. The decor was done by Penny which formed part of the package. We could have not been more impressed by her understanding and interpretation of what we desired for the colour scheme, flowers and overall arrangement. It was elegant, simply stunning and absolutely perfect. We made the best decision to have our wedding at Collisheen Estate and are so grateful for their incredible support within such limited time.

A big thank you to Gizelle, Phumlani & the rest of the Collisheen team for making our special day such a success. Gizelle was with us every step of the way, checking up on us throughout the build up to the wedding, ensuring that we had all our service providers and accommodating all our requests. The venue itself is incredible but it’s the collisheen team that brings the day together. Gizelle has a special way of making you feel like family (in fact, our guests did think that she was part of the family) and was the calm through the wedding chaos. Phumlani is the man behind the scenes - all he needed was a checklist and he had everything covered. Last but not least, our guests are still talking about how great the food was! We chose the vegetarian option and we were not disappointed. THANK YOU collisheen for giving us a day we will never forget.

Collisheen Estate - The BOMAWhat an incredible venue. Fell in love with it on our very first visit!Gizelle took us through the venue and explained the in's and out's - made me feel like we were going to have a day we would never forget - 1 year before our actual wedding day!Throughout the process from when we secured the date, to choosing a menu, to viewing the venue again, to finalizing timelines, etc, Gizelle made the entire process so smooth and non-stressful.Bridal salon on site was so convenient, but to arrive on the day and see that they had even colour coded it to the colours of my wedding - the small details surely do matter and shows how much effort is put in to make you feel so welcome.The food was absolutely fantastic, almost 3 weeks has passed since the wedding and my guests are still talking about it. Totally blown away with how much care and concern was given to making sure the guests with food allergies got the food they were able to eat.The barmen treated our guests like they were usuals and they loved how friendly and caring the staff were all round.Gizelle, Phumlani, Chef’s and all the staff at Collisheen that worked behind the scenes - Thank you for a day we will NEVER forget!We loved every minute of it!Kind Regards Mr & Mrs Klopper
