All the best,

A wedding thank you from Miquette and Chris

We want to thank you, the staff at the Oyster Box and all of the recommended suppliers for an absolutely beautiful and truly unforgettable wedding day. We loved every moment of it.

Ginny, a special thanks to you for your detailed planning and co-ordination. The day was stress free and relaxed for us and our guests due to your perfect planning.

Three cheers for the Oyster Box!!


Miquette and Chris

Intimate wedding thank you

Thank you for all the hard work you and the Oyster Box staff put into making Loren and Steve's wedding a joyous, beautiful occasion. Thanks to Michelle for helping with the steaming of Loren's dress, to the catering manager and his waitrons, all the guests commented on how well they were taken care off, so glad we chose the prawns for a starter, they were sublime, the guests with special dietary requirements, were impressed with what was offered to them, thank you, I think they felt as special as the rest of the guests, all the food on offer was excellent, for which I am grateful.

To all the staff, both at reception, housekeeping and your excellent staff, who greet the guests at the entrance to the hotel, they all do a wonderful job and go the extra mile. All the different venues from the wedding blessing in the Gazebo, to the pre-dinner drinks in the Oyster Bar, to the Pearl Room and chill lounge were all beautifully appointed and even the powder rooms were unbelievable, and let’s not forget the Rolls Royce and red carpet, all in all a day when Loren felt like a princess, Steve, like her prince and, we were able to spoil our guests, all who had been kind enough to travel to Umhlanga to join us witnessing love and happiness in such an amazing location.

Thank you so much,

Kind Regards

Thank you for an excellent, well planned wedding. Every aspect was faultless. The food was top class, the staff were exceptional. I will recommend you and the OBH to anyone.

Thank you for everything, I meant to speak to you on the day but got side- tracked!

Wedding thank you to you

We are back home...adjusting to work and the time zone. I'm cooking these days! It's the best feeling to be Cals wife.

We have to thank you Ginny! You made our day go smoothly without any worry. OBH is my favourite place on earth and I can't wait to visit next year. We will definitely be staying there for at least a night when we're in SA again.

We wish you all the best in life and till we meet again we wish you God's blessings.

Take care Ginny. You are like a family member to us. I can't tell you how grateful we are for all of the OBH staff that assisted us as well. We felt like royalty there. Sometimes I wish I could relive the day.

Lots of love,

Farielle and Calvin.

We hope you are well. We will like thank you for making our day so special. Every time we reminisce about the day, we get goose bumps and excited because it turned out to be exactly the way we envisaged it.

We are waiting in anticipation for the pictures.

Wedding thank you from me to you

Life has finally got back to normal. Our wedding was an amazing unforgettable experience.

I don't know how to thank you, without your help I know it would not have been so beautiful. Bruce and I felt so special. I know it's your job but it shines through that you love doing it and you have a gift with making people feel comfortable.

We will definitely stop by and say hello when we are in the area.

Thank you thank you thank you!!!

All our love

Mr & Mrs Mclennan (I love saying that) Bruce & Jackie

The Wedding was amazing

A quick note to say thank you for your efficiency and professionalism. It was a pleasure meeting you and every time I visit The Oyster Box. I expect a laugh over a cocktail on the deck overlooking Umhlanga next time I am in the area. JL and Tashy’s wedding was amazing, thank you for all your contributions.

Kind Regards

Thank you for the best day of our lives

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the best day of our lives. The wedding was the picture perfect moment for us and our guests. The food was divine and our guest could not stop commenting about how delicious the food was. The venue was like a walking into a castle of a prince and princess. We want to express our gratitude to you and your wedding team on an excellent job. We really enjoyed our stay and our experience at The Oyster Box and would highly recommend you and the venue to family and friends.

If we could we wouldn’t mind doing all of this again…at the same venue…you have made it an amazing experience for Rolenta and I.

We thank you and hope to see you in the near future.

Kind Regards

Thank you – from Virginia and Kevin Allen

I cannot believe it has been ONE week already since Our Wedding!

We would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your sharp, efficient and outstanding execution of events on the day of Our Wedding! Everything was absolutely perfect and we are THRILLED that we chose You as our Wedding Planner & the Oyster Box as our venue. As soon as we get the professional photographs I will let you have some.

With our love

Mr and Mrs Allen

Everything was beautiful and perfect

Alan and I would like to say thank you so much for our amazing wedding day! Everything was beautiful and perfect and we cannot thank you and your staff enough for the care that went into our special day.

And as a bonus, I couldn’t believe our luck when the rain held off just long enough for us to be able to get married in the same place we got engaged in August last year, exactly what we had hoped for.The service that we received throughout and especially on the day was outstanding. From our first correspondence, and then with having our first meeting with you, Alan and I knew we had made the best decision by choosing The Oyster Box.

Now I just wish we could have it all over again. Hopefully we will be back in the not too distant future!

Thank you again!

Kind regards,

Celeste Toet
