On behalf of my new wife and I, thank you all at Oxbow so much for an incredible wedding! Everything, up to the tiniest detail, was just perfect.

A special thanks to Roelan - you managed to keep my bride calm and managed our special day perfectly! We would definitely recommend Oxbow to anybody looking for a venue for their special day.

Jeffery de Visser − 9 December 2015

What a wonderful wedding venue − My husband and I had the best first day as Mr and Mrs at Oxbow. It was an amazing experience with the staff being super helpful and doing everything and anything that was needed. Our photos came out fantastic even though it was hailing and thundering. As we were the first wedding to be held at oxbow this year I can truly say the year started with a bang. Thanks to absolutely everyone who made the day possible!

Lindi & Ivan Engelbrecht − 8 January 2016

Thank you to the staff at Oxbow Country Estate for making our wedding day more perfect than I expected! A big thank you to Carla for making the day run smoothly, I never once felt stressed knowing you were there. I spent all my time taking it all in rather than stressing! To all the brides getting married at Oxbow, you have made the perfect choice!

Danielle & Sean Rodgers − 13 February 2016

We just want to say a HUGE thank you to Oxbow and their team!
Our wedding was magical... We will never forget it, the guests ranted and raved about so much especially the food. A special thank you to Mariette and Chris who went above and beyond our expectations to deliver us an unforgettable day.
Wishing you all the best in your future!

Natasha & Marco − 27 February 2016

We would just like to thank you once again for going above and beyond our expectations on our wedding day. The food, service and organisation was amazing.

Tamlyn Clack & Waide Stevens − 5 March 2016

I just want to thank you for the absolutely fantastic job you did of managing our special day!

You were so professional and there was never a moment on the day, that I was concerned about it running smoothly. Everyone commented on the great management you provided and you made sure our day turned out perfectly.

Thank you for the your positive attitude and professional behavior. Our wedding day could not have been more perfect!

Danielle & James Visser − 4 March 2016

Ons kon nie 'n meer PERFEKTE troue gehad het nie! Alles te danke aan Roelan Grabie en Oxbow Country Estate. Nie net is dit die mooiste venue wat ek al ooit gesien het nie maar ook die vriendelikste personeel! Ek kon alles in Roelan se hande los en hy het seker gemaak alles gebeur presies soos wat ek dit wou gehad het! Dankie Roelan en Oxbow vir julle goeie diens en die mooiste dag in ons lewens! Ons troue was alles en soveel meer as wat ek van gedroom het dit sou wees!

Marnus en Marié van Rensburg − 8 April 2016

The venue was absolutely stunning and so clean and the service/staff team were outstanding! We have only heard wonderful things from so many of our guests about the food and the presentation of it so thank you to the chefs for a lovely meal.

Thank you again for the excellent service. We have an absolutely perfect, special, blessed and happy wedding day. Couldn't have asked for anything better.

Heleen van Rensburg − 8 April 2016

Baie dankie vir 'n wonderlike troue wat jul saam met Marnus en Marie van Rensburg gereël het. Dit was baie stylvol en professioneel gewees. Het nog nooit so baie kos by 'n aansit ete gehad nie. Sal jul beslis vir toekomstige paartjies aanbeveel.

Candice Bolt & Chad Theron − 30 April 2016

We recently got married at Oxbow, and were treated like royalty! In the build up to the big day, the staff were always courteous, helpful and friendly, but on the actual day, we almost only had to 'snap our fingers' and things get done - professionally so to boot!A great, big thank you to all the staff, from top to bottom! The food was beyond excellent, and still a major talking point weeks after the event - kudos to the chef and his kitchen! I can comfortably recommend Oxbow as a standout venue for all types of functions. P.S. Remember the fly-rods, I understand fishing is good but could not try it myself...

Etienne & Larietha Smith − 15 May 2015

To the most wonderful people that arranged our wedding and made our day so special, we want to thank you with all our hearts. Thank you Mariaan for making sure our wedding didn't skip a beat. May your future be filled with all the love and success in this world.

Rosco & Wondra York − March 2015

Hiermee wil ek die personeel van Oxbow Country Estate komplimenteer op hul puik diens met en by ons troue wat plaasgevind het op 22 Aug. Wat 'n wonderlike ervaring.

Julle het ons van dag een af spesiaal laat voel en als in jul vermoe gedoen om ons te akkomodeer met spesiale versoeke ens. Dis 'n pragtige venue en die personeel maak dit selfs meer spesiaal. Die kos was fantasties!

Ek kon nie vir 'n beter plekkie gevra het vir ons sprokiesdag nie. Dankie Oxbow, en 'n besondere dankie aan Lynette Steyn. Jys 'n ster! Mag julle binnekort as nr1 venue benoem word!

Hi Mariette,

Hope you are doing well! We didn't get the opportunity yet to say thank you to the staff at Oxbow Country Estate for their excellent service at our wedding which was on the 26 Sept 2014.

Since the day we came through to Oxbow to have a look at the venue, we just immediately fell in love with the venue, we met Mariette which was very friendly and professional and showed us around. Mariette was our coordinator for our wedding and what great work she does, she has a passion for what she does, she was always available to help me during the planning of the wedding even with the smallest detail, she definitely goes the extra mile to keep the client happy, she truly deserves a medal. On the wedding day she made sure everything went as planned and assisted where ever she could. She made us feel special and rested on the day.

Also thank you to all the staff at Oxbow Country Estate that was involved at our wedding, even with the smallest contribution, they were all professional and friendly and made our day just perfect with the service we received from them. I think most couples stress about the food at the wedding (because it plays a big roll), will it be good or not, but I can truly say that your food was out of this world, it was really divine, thank you to the chef at Oxbow Country Estate that made the food and also making it special. We received a lot of complements about the food.

We can definitely recommend Oxbow Country Estate to anyone who is getting married. We had such a beautiful special wedding!

Once again thank you.

Regards, Alex & Yolanda Sprenzel
Hi Mariette,

Thank you once again for a beautiful and especially memorable day! You were an absolute hero on the day and I really appreciate all that you and your team did to make it the most amazing day in our lives, we really could not have asked for a better place to get married!

I would like to thank each one of you (Oxbow staff) for your part in making Juanita and Lourens’s wedding on 9th November at Oxbow so special. The execution and talent shown by all of you was exceptional, and although at times during the planning, things where tough, the execution was wonderful.

Both Juanita and I work in the programme and project Management world where we always say, “If your planning is 80% of the effort, the execution and delivery will be 20% of the effort”.

Mariette, I would like to call you out, the event coordinator at Oxbow, your support, commitment and professionalism to pull everything together, prior to, and on the day is to be commended! Well done!! You rock!
Thank you again all, well done on an event delivered perfectly!

We would just like to say a HUGE Thank You to you for your warm and welcoming hospitality on Saturday! As mentioned, you are by far the most amazing venue coordinator we have ever worked with. You not only looked after the interest of the bride and groom but you went out of your way to make sure we too were comfortable and taken care of and we truly cannot thank you enough. We truly enjoyed our time spent at Oxbow Country Estate and a lot of this is owed to you. We greatly appreciate all your efforts it was such a pleasure dealing with you, you really made that day a memorable one for us too :)
