Lestor & Angelique

Good morning Cecile, Steven, Karen and the rest of the amazing Usambara team,

Our heartfelt, sincere and HUGE thank you to all of you on behalf of myself and Lestor for everything you have all done for us on our special day.

We met with Colbert on our first visit to the venue and it was so lovely to see him coordinate our wedding on the day as well.

Thank you for the warm welcome and for always being a phone call, email or WhatsApp message away whenever we needed you guys.

You have shown us that it’s not just all about the money / business, but about being a family and working together.

Everything was 5 star service, the food, decor, the DJ… not only did we have a great time but we have had great feedback from all our guests.

I highly recommend Usambara to anyone who is looking for a wedding venue to host their special day.

A special thank you to:

Johan *The flower guy* – flowers and decor

Bianca *Perfect touch* – stationary

Ilze *Angel cakes* – cake

Colbert our coordinator

Darlington *Epic sound* – DJ

We have certainly been blessed with the best!

Thank you thank you THANK YOU ❤

Hi Usambara

I can’t thank you enough for the most amazing gift, which was winning the wedding competition. As far as the arrangements went, I have this to say:

Everyone was professional, and very pleasant

The arrangements were of a high standard and made as per our requirements:

Food was great

The décor was stunning

Flower arrangements – perfection

“I felt like a princess”, says my wife- and thus, you made her dream come true

Music was good, not too loud and the DJ paid attention to the dance floor and changed the song early if there were no takers

The grounds are exceptional making it the best venue, in my opinion

The honeymoon suite was comfortable and spacious

Steven and Karen went out of their way to ensure that all went smoothly.  I highly recommend Usambara for any event where one and one’s guests need to feel special

Good day
I hope this email finds everyone well
This email may be a bit delayed but we all know that sometimes it can be a bit hectic after a wedding with family especially in this December season but I wanted to write this email in a my own private space so that I can express our greatest gratitude.
14 December 2019, I must say we had an amazing “out of this world” wedding. Looking back at the videos and pictures makes us feel like we were in paradise ☺
For the above reason, we would like to say thank you to Usambara and its whole team.
The treatment received from the whole team was just so special, from the start of the wedding preparations to the day after the wedding.
Cecile, thank you for the warm welcome and constant follow ups and updates. You keeping in touch and checking on us made us feel like we are the most important people 🤗 and thank you so much for that.
One thing I won’t forget that really touched me is when me and Eugene came to discuss decor arrangements with Steven and Johan and you called and asked to speak to me. On the call you apologised for not being present as you were not feeling well and further to that offered to still come if I really needed you. That is the kind of humanity you have in you that will definitely continue to make a success our of Usambara. God bless you for your beautiful self.
Steven and Johan, thank you for the wonderful decor and flower work. I almost cried when I saw my bouquet, it was extremely beautiful. You are both extremely friendly and sincere. You both make a great team 👌😉
Karen, thank you for the wonderful food tasting session and thank you Mitchelle for the beer arrangements, especially allowing us to bring in our own alcohol. When the MC said “open bar” i must say that was a spectacular moment for me and Eugene 😅 knowing very well that our guests love “FREE” alcohol 🙈
Colbert and the rest of the staff (accommodation staff and the staff who to took care of my wedding proceedings), thank you so much for your friendly and professional service.
The accommodation service was just that word- accommodative 😊 clean, fresh and top class. We slept and woke up feeling so amazing and happy. Breakfast was super amazing. Oooh my my my… the bridal suite is was the best part. Beautiful room that made me feel like a queen 😊
Thank you DJ for the beautiful music and I’ll also include our thanks to the wonderful service given by Pastor Callie.
Everyone was just so Kind, professional, thoughtful, patient, practical, creative and always available to assist.
Having said all the above, we had an amazing, elegant, magnificent and perfect wedding. We had no downfall at all. For me, I had the kind of wedding a little would dream of and even more.
I wish you all well and pray to God that he may continue to bless your work and may you all have a prosperous life ahead.
Thank you once again and we love you all.
Kindest regards

Neo and Eugene

Hi Usambara Team

Today I write this letter of gratitude to the Cecilia & the Usambara team. Thank you to the team for organising my special day. It was everything a bride could have imagined.
I just wanted to thank you guys for the excellent service provided for the wedding. We received only positive comments about the venue, staff, food, dj. We were very happy to give recommendations to the people that attended who asked us about the flower décor and venue. The food was amazing and everyone asked about the caterer.

Special thank you to Johan he has been amazing from the beginning with regards to the flowers and got my vision. His work is excellent and always willing to assist with a friendly smile. I will definitely recommend him to Nedbank Corporate.

Cecilia Thank you from the bottom of my heart for making my day a day to remember!
