Everything was what we dreamed of.
By Abigale and Derick, on 14 Mar 2018Date of Wedding - 24 Sep 2017
Derick and I would love to say a big Thank You to you both and the Everwood team from the staff behind the scene who helped prepare the food, set-up and the garden team. Not to forget the waitresses, waiters and barmen.
Everything was what we dreamed of.
The food was exquisite, everybody raved about it. We both managed to eat and thoroughly enjoyed it.
Thank you Margariet for everything, our day was more than perfect and a success.
Our wedding décor was exactly what we were looking for, rustic, simple, yet elegant. Thank you Monique from Splendid Wedding Designs for all your help and hard work.
Everwood really let us create our dream wedding, allowing us to have our animals both horse and dog to be apart of our special day.
You and your team helped create a memory that will last forever.
We are still floating on cloud nine

Again a huge thank you for making everything go so smoothly, we received so many compliments on the food and the venue. The staff was also so accommodating and friendly. We cannot complain about a thing to be honest
You guys deserve 10 out of 10 for all that you do

Firstly thank you so so so much for being our wedding venue as well as caterer and coordinator for our wedding day! I cannot fault anything from the wedding day!!!!
Arriving to the venue on Friday the 20th I knew there was still a lot of work to be done by the vendors and the venue but I needed to just relax and trust that everyone would play their role in the big day. From when my hair started at 10:30am EVERYTHING was out of my control and I just had to have faith and believe that the past year of planning would all work out. Themi was an absolute star on the wedding day, anything I needed done she did for me!
When I walked down the isle the chapel was stunning. We loved that we did a "backwards" chapel where we faced the garden instead of the field, and the sun was kind enough to hide just behind the tree tops on the day. Once the ceremony was over and we walked through the archway the garden was stunning and the set up was remarkable. Margariet you did an amazing job with the canapes and biltong platters!!!
From there of course we went and took stunning photos around the venue which of course I know looks amazing because of you Vanessa!
When we entered the hall I was truly overwhelmed! leading up to the day when it was just bare tables and chairs the day before I was nervous the hall would be too empty or too cluttered. But I was blown away, everyone was close to each other but NOT in each others space.
Thank you again

Thank you so much for your beautiful compliments. We had the most amazing day ever and we loved how everything looked on the day. It exceeded my expectations by far and was so much more than I had envisioned for our special day.
Thank you to all your staff at Everwood for making our day so stunning. We received numerous compliments on the food and the venue setup. Our guests really had an incredible time and so did we.
Thank you again to all of you for making our wedding day so incredibly special.
I would definitely recommend you

I would just like to commend you on the outstanding service and food you prepared for our wedding which took place on the 30th of December 2017.
Our guests had a splendid time and we received so much compliments. If I had to do it all over again I wouldn't change a thing.
There's only one regret - me and my husband just wish we ate some more or took a doggy bag to the suite, haha!
Thank you all once again, I would definitely recommend you to any bride- and groom to be!
Our wedding was AMAZING
By Tania Eyssen, on 14 Mar 2018Date of Wedding - 16 Dec 2017
Literally all the guest said it was one of the best weddings they've been to. We had such a wonderful, stress free, beautiful day and it is all thanks to you and your team. Everything went so smoothly and I really need to thank you all for making it a fairy tale day.
I have attached a few photos, you are more than welcome to upload them to your website. Please also use these photos for the Real Weddings blog. The photographer will be done with the rest of the photos in about two months, I'll send some more then.
On 16 December 2017 me and Ryno tied the knot in front of our loved ones and closest friends. It was a fairy tale from the moment I the wedding march started to play and I took the first step of the rest of my life down the isle, towards the man of my dreams. After the ceremony, it was just fun, fun, fun from thereon. Our taste buds were spoiled with the most amazing food, and wedding cake, you can ever imagine. The hall seemed like it belonged in Cinderella's castle. The staff were amazing and I never had to stress about one thing, making our wedding day a BIG day to remember.
Thanks again for the role you played in making my wedding day the best ever!

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for making our special day a huge success, everything went splendidly well! I am definitely still floating on cloud nine ?
From the chapel to the reception to the room everything was perfect. Everwood is truly a beautiful romantic venue and I just love the tranquil atmosphere. (Vanessa if you ever decide to sell please contact me 1st ;)
Thank you for making our day feel like a fairytale, even though it went by in a heartbeat we surely do have wonderful memories and wish we could do it all over again.
A special thank you to Margariet, you are truly a remarkable mighty woman of God, from the moment I met you your warm kindness reflected right through. You have such a passion for what you do which truly showed on our day, despite being so sick you went the extra mile to ensure everything was perfect. I was in such a bubble I didn’t eat much but the food was delicious, as for the cake it was divine especially the French vanilla we really enjoyed it, and it looked beautiful exactly how I wanted it ?

Hi Vanessa & Margariet,
Thank you for hosting such a special wedding. We really appreciate all your help, guidance and support. Please thank all your staff - they played along with our treasure hunt game, they were very friendly and courteous - Raymond was also such a help.
Margariet - your food was amazing, everyone we've spoken to raved about the canapé’s and starters - they said it was absolutely amazing. I know you put in a little extra. It was wonderful.
Vanessa - the bridal suite and fountain room were simply amazing. We couldn’t have asked for more. We loved the champagne sandwiches, breakfast items; the chocolate placed on our pillow, was such a nice touch and made the day and evening extra special.
Attached are some photographer pics you may upload to your page if you wish. We'll send you more once we've received them...
Gordon & Candice
Everwoods Fantastic Service
By Lindsey Swart, on 23 Apr 2013
Dear Margariet and Vanessa
This is just a short email to say thank you for going the extra mile at our wedding. We enjoyed our day to the fullest.
The service we received was wonderful. Thank you for the extra touch of getting one of the staff to bring us juice just before the photo-shoot … when we saw that waitress carrying those big glasses of juice, it was like we were seeing an angel walk towards us. We didn’t realize we were that thirsty until we saw her.
The food was delicious! I have to admit that the bridal couple missed out on the canapés, but from what we hear from the guests, they were impressed.
Thank you for suggesting Monique from Splendid Wedding Designs … because of her work, the venue looked like it belonged in a fairy tale.
Margariet, apologies that I am so bad with names, but please say a big thank you to your daughter for keeping everything on track; for coming over to the main table to find out if all is ok; for serving such good food!
Thank you again,
