Thank you so much for the exceptional service we received for our wedding, from the day we started  planning to the coordination.

The staff was very friendly , food was delicious and the venue was stunning. I got a bit stressed when I heard that we had an overflow but you went beyond our expectations and  everyone was accommodated.

Dear Catherine & St. Ives Team

Leon and i would just like to extend our thank you to you all at St. Ives. The wedding was fantastic, from the venue to the food to the accommodation. The Chapel is just beautiful.

Our rooms where devine thank you for accommodating us and our guests who booked, the king size bed is just luxurious 3 girls in one bed we slept like queens.

The staff where all so helpful and friendly, it was a joy organising and having our wedding at St.Ives, it really is a gem.It is a pity that Leon and i hardly got to eat but all our guests told us that the food was delicious and they all had a great time.

After the wedding a few of us headed down to the boma where we had a few drinks, pit we missed the joll down there, but i bumped into old friends which was lovely

.Leon and i will recommend St.Ives to all our friends who are looking to tie the knot.As well as we will visit the little treasure when we are in the area for a meter long pizza, see we are married now i can get fat!

Love Skye & Leon,
