Way more than we hoped for

We look back on our big day with an automatic smile, tears of joy and a jumping heart. And Fynbos estate and all its lovely people has a very big part in it.

When we started planning our wedding from Amsterdam, Tim being Dutch, we knew from the start we wanted to have our wedding in the Western Cape. I grew up in Piketberg and we not only wanted to surround ourselves with this on our wedding, but we wanted to share the breath-taking surroundings of the Swartland with all our loved ones, especially those coming from abroad. And yes, they were completely blown away.

The weekend of the wedding was way more than we hoped for. We couldn’t have asked for better assistance from you and your team in helping us with the arrangements of the wedding. We thought it was going to be a challenge arranging it from abroad, but the Fynbos team made it a breeze. You were op top of everything and even reminded of things we would have forgotten about completely.

We had a very specific look, feel and atmosphere in mind for our wedding weekend and Fynbos gave us exactly that. We are both very down to earth, relaxed and happy-go-lucky and that is how our friends and family knows us. Fynbos gave us the opportunity to represent that perfectly.  It is a wonderful intimate and amazingly beautiful venue. The atmosphere was so relaxed and peaceful and homey. And with the pretty surroundings, animals and old cape Dutch house, we didn’t have to do much with decorations. Not to mention the unending spots for amazing photographs. The photographer, along with us didn’t know where to start and where to stop.

Our families, which are all very close, could spend the weekend together in the big farmhouse, which would also be where I would get ready,as well exit from for the ceremony. And wow, was that small little spot under the tree, with the birds singing not just magical for a wedding celebration?!!?

The pre-drinks in the garden was like a garden party on its own, and no one had the feeling that they were waiting for a reception. The intimacy of the venue just made it feel like one big celebration, moving from one end to the other end.

We cannot stop looking at the photographs, without going…wow and after 2 months, our loved ones are still talking about it. Perfection.

Thank you ever so much not only for your help and warmth, but for preserving such a beautiful place.

Kindest regards

Tim and Chantel Frankfort
