We thank these wonderful clients for their encouraging remarks .... 

From our very first meeting with Glynnis, we felt comfortable and felt that our ideas were being heard. Glynnis took time to understand who we were as a couple and this was expressed in the final product.  With both of us being Architects, it is difficult to find someone with a fine eye for good design and a contemporary feel.  Glynnis’ knowledge, passion and artistry gave our wedding décor and flowers a unique look which blew our guests away.  We received several favourable comments from the venue staff on Glynnis’ professionalism.  Our entire experience with Talloula was relaxed and enjoyable and during the stressful wedding planning time – its important to work with someone you can trust and depend on.  Glynnis also worked within our budget to deliver the most beautiful wedding décor    Geoffrey and Nicole Richards

Glynnis and Lindsay, we are amazed at what you two can do!  We believe that the two of you are the best at what you do, and we were blessed having you plan and decorate our wedding.  From the Save the Dates to the last person leaving the wedding, you were there for us.  Nothing was ever too much, or too difficult for you.  Whatever we wanted you got for us, no matter what.  We so enjoyed the planning of our wedding because you made everything so easy and enjoyable for us.  But most ofall we would like to thank you for your friendliness, kindness and support.  You were never just our Wedding Planners – we see you as our friends.  Thank you for giving us a perfectly stunning wedding … you are the Best! Monique and Ruan Pienaar

We went for lunch at Treat Café and it was one of those places that actually meet your expectations, even when they are unusually high!  It’s “refreshingly yummy” slogan is on point and owners Louis Gordon and Glynnis Dirksen, have something special here!  Although it is quite new, its developed a strong following of loyal customers since it opened its doors.  The setting is gorgeous, the food rustic, beautifully presented and delicious, the owners very hands-on and friendly, and the service excellent. A perfect place for a sunny Sunday lunch in the Valley of a 1000 Hills!  Kelly Houghting

On behalf of Sandy, I would like to say thank you to the both of you for making me believe that our decision to use Talloula, was indeed the correct one.  From day one, we were introduced and attended to, by good natured, service centric and professional personnel, which has a huge reflection of how the both of you run and manage your business.  The exemplary execution of the total plan, was beyond reproach from any angle.  Our guests were enthralled by the venue, setting and service and most of all, the exquisite and tasty food.  This top shelf service experience, left Sandy and I feel that we as the first tier hosts, had made a great decision in using Talloula as our service provider.  Our guest’s comments after the wedding attest to this statement.  You and Talloula made us look and feel good and along with our diverse guests, we salute you!  We will continue to drop by to cultivate the friendship forged during our experience with you both at Talloula.  With much appreciation  Francis and Sandy Reddy

This was my most cherished moment with my mum.  She always had wanted to attend the O, The Oprah Magazine SA Tea Party as she is a huge O Mag fan!  We both attended this year at the Talloula venue and it was truly magical!  I was so happy that we got to spend such a fun time bonding  Roxanne Chutthergroon

To Glynnis, Louis and the Talloula team I cant begin to thank you enough for the gorgeous job you did with the flowers at our wedding on the 21 December.  The bouquets, the table arrangements and the details at the ceremony were just what we wanted and I was delighted!  Dealing with you was so simple and easy I did not feel stressed even once.  We are so grateful to you all for your hard work  Kelly Hartley

Hi there!  I know it’s a Sunday and its only 6.30 am but I cant help it – I think I have fallen in love with your venue!  I have recently become engaged and as any ‘sane’ bride to be will do, I have searched and searched and searched for a venue that seems to suit me and my fiance’s style and décor ideals!!  Claire Ferguson
