Hello Willy,

We are back in Charleston, South Carolina now and are still reeling from the most amazing memories of our wedding day.

We just received some further photos from the photographer and I wanted to send them your way!! It was absolutely gorgeous at Ascot!!!!


Willy, you were always so helpful when you got back to us and you always gave followed up with information if it was not readily available then. We were so thankful to have you coordinate the event – it went off perfectly and beyond our expectations. Everything was timed perfectly. The staff did not miss a beat. All our little details about removing the plates and the timing of the speeches.. even the fruit in mimosas was all spot on! Thank you so much. The venue was beyond our wildest dreams. I wanted an African feel but could not go to the bush itself and Ascot really performed in all aspects of bringing the beauty of South Africa to our wedding. The Acacia tree is so beautiful and so incredibly special.

Thank you for bearing with us during the rain and allowing us to change back to under the tree at the last minute! It is something we’ll never forget and is so uniquely perfect for joining two people together. The alternative venue would have been fine but we were so happy that it worked out to say our vows with our families under the acacia tree. Thank you.

Please extend our utmost thanks to Cheryl too, she really helped realize our wishes on that last meeting when I brought my Dad too. You guys have a great team and I’m sure the new ownership will do really well.

Hope you enjoy the photos. We will recommend Ascot to anyone who even mentions a wedding in Pietermaritzburg or Durban for that matter! You truly helped make our wedding the most special day of our lives.
