Another lovely wedding at Rondekuil Estates
t was a lovely summer’s day when Tanya Kotze and Paul Van Tonder shared their wedding with 62 of their friends and family at Rondekuil Country Estate on Saturday the 1stof March. A vintage 1931 Ford delivered the radiant bride to our venue on time, and everyone was buzzing with excitement and enthusiasm for this young couple who, without doubt, had eyes only for each other. They met at a club in Durbanville 4 years ago, and plan to stay in Durbanville after their 2 week honeymoon in Struisbaai. Tanya is a specialised Medical Courier, and Paul a whizz at Computer Programming. They share their home with one cat and eight birds. The wedding proposal was apparently something totally different from the norm. Being a computer boffin, Paul developed a special flash animation which he asked Tanya to watch, saying that he needed her opinion on it. She sat down to watch, and then realised that it was actually a wedding proposal from Paul, and promptly burst into tears because she was so overwhelmed, and it was so unexpected.
They learnt about the wedding facilities offered by Rondekuil Estates whilst conducting an internet search, and was pleased to find such an accommodating venue so close to their home town of Durbanville. The lovely country setting offered by Rondekuil Estates was what inspired Tanya and Paul to host their wedding here. Tanya’s bridesmaids were Kayla and Sasha, her close friends, and the two flower girls were (another) Tanya and Alyssa.
The wedding celebration continued until late, and the bridal couple and their guests left Rondekuil with wonderful memories of a very special day.
