Get to know her better in these 10 questions.

 

What is your favourite Glen Carlou wine?

People, not just guests but fellow team members. Building and serving rather than servicing! Serving people is a privilege.

What is your favourite moment in a wedding celebration?

The Groom’s speech

What do you like to do in your downtime/days off?

To spend time with my 3 boys aged 7, 12 & 40ish

Where is your favourite holiday destination/ type of holiday, why?

The Bushveld and relaxing with my family. No technology, just the bush, fire and good wine.

If you were on a deserted island what three items would you take with you?

Bible, Pillow & photo of my 3 boys

If you were not in the hospitality industry, what career would you have entered?

Stewardship

What is the one piece of advice you would give to a bride planning her wedding?

Hire the best photographer in the industry!

If you could redo your own wedding day, how would you approach it?

I’d redo my guest list and go for personal relationships vs the traditional family wedding. Rather have a hand full of people that means the world to us.
