Winners of the “Win a Vintage Wedding at Calderwood Hall” Competition
Local couple, Kirsten Impey and Rory Bekker were the winners of the Calderwood Hall Guest House “Win a Vintage Wedding Reception” Competition, and in August 2013 enjoyed their R100 000 prize with their family and friends.
The prize included the wedding venue with catering by CHC Catering, flowers and decor from Kerry’s Decor and Flowers, photography and wedding album from Karen E Photography and a fairy tale carriage drive with Crab Apple.
Kirsten has been running a blog on the Calderwood Hall Website and summed up the experience that lasted just over a year:
“All the care and love that was tirelessly put in to ensure that no detail was left out, cannot be faulted at all. Your dedication and devotion to keeping us happy has gone a long way into making the process fun and stress free”.

Tala Valley KZN Marriage Meander Journey
The Marriage Meander Journey held in the Tala Valley area on Saturday the 24th Aug was more than memorable. Our guests were treated to a special day with glorious weather, amazing food supplied by our venues and CHC catering, together with prizes from the venues. The service providers went the extra mile yet again, sharing tips and advice and spoiling bridal couples with wonderful gifts. Thanks to each one of them for helping make it such a successful day.
What our guests had to say:
“… WOW! What an unbelievably fun, exciting, informative day! The Marriage Meander was everything I had hoped it would be, and more. I appreciate all the effort that went into making this day as brilliant as it was. All the tiny extras and special moments that I will treasure forever! Saturday was the best. I can simply NOT wait to put together our wedding day using all the tips and advice we were given throughout the Meander Journey.” ~ Y&T

The Bridal Gallery Candlelit Carnival
Glowing fires, hot food and friendly people set the tone for a festive evening at The Bridal Gallery on the weekend. It was an evening with a difference and bridal couples were treated to some of the top service providers as they strolled around the exhibitors tables under the stretch tent on the mild evening.
Lots of wonderful prizes were up for grabs, the main prizes being donated by Insingizi Lodge and MSC Cruises, and there was plenty of entertainment for all. We hope this will become an annual event. Thanks to Karen from the Bridal Gallery and her crew who made it such a successful evening.
The Marriage Meander Business Growth Cocktail Evening at Calderwood Hall
Lots of laughter and loads of inspiration were the order of the evening at the Marriage Meander Business Growth Cocktail Evening recently held at the spectacular Calderwood Hall. Scrumptious food supplied by CHC catering was enjoyed as guests watched a perfect sunset and chatted late into the evening.
Marriage Meander suppliers and guests were empowered as Gael Taylor from Learning Identity explained the difference between left and right brain thinkers and how we can better understand our clients’ needs. Nikki Sinclair, the owner of Marriage Meander KZN, gave some characteristics of successful companies and encouraged the audience to set goals and have a strategic plan to achieve them, as we are working in an increasingly competitive industry.
Many guests stayed overnight, enjoying the Calderwood experience and woke to a hearty country breakfast. Thanks to everyone who travelled from far to join us and a special thanks to Wade from Calderwood Hall for all he and his team did to make it such a successful event.

The ‘WEDCAM’ is free for all The Windmills weddings and for those couples who don’t want their wedding broadcast, the ‘WEDCAM’ can be switched off.
