Thank you Red Ivory Team

Thank you Red Ivory Team

Teri wrote this nice letter to the team at Red Ivory after her recent wedding. Reading words such as this makes it so much more worth it! We love what we do, and the appreciation from our clients is what we strive for with each event.       Good Day Samantha and the Red Ivory Team   Thank you from the bottom of my heart for making my special day so epic! The service we received from you guys was absolutely phenomenal. We felt like royalty! The food, drinks, canapes and cocktails were simply delicious. Thank you so much, your venue will always be so incredibly special to us.  ...

Your wish is our command…

Armed with a {rather detailed} wish list compiled by our future brides and grooms, 5 weeks and a fist full of Dollars, the Red Ivory team launched into action on 20 June 2015…   28 days later and with the dedication and hard work of a seventeen company contractor team … and VOILA!   How we did so much in such a short space of time {with laughter and our sanity intact} still boggles the mind… but it is without a doubt testament to creative minds, a great team and unrelenting hard work.   The bride and groom’s wish list included:   Bigger restaurant, (now seats up to 350 guests) √   Disabled access to the venue & full disabled facilities in the restrooms √   More restrooms at restaurant level √   Larger bar (Doubled in size) √   Bigger dance floor √   More lounge area (Quadrupled in size) √   Larger cocktail area with (Now with permanent seating for 100 guests) √   Larger parking area enough to enable 350 guests √   Stone water feature with three fountains in front of the bride’s prep suite (this by the way was an actual request by one of our brides-to-be!)...

Even though this is a belated post, congratulations once again to this great man and his lovely...
Gold + White Moroccan {Styled Shoot}

Gold + White Moroccan {Styled Shoot}

Cindy Lee du Toit from The Bloom Room, one of Red Ivory’s preferred décor and flower suppliers, organised a styled shoot with photographer Natalie Shelton at the venue to display her range of décor items and beautiful flower arrangements and bouquets. The idea for the shoot was to incorporate the African elements that Red Ivory embodies and couple these with a gold and white Moroccan theme. “We wanted to move away completely from the over the top colourful backdrop which Moroccan design and culture embodies and rather stick to a colour palette that, in our minds, work well with the woods of the African bushveld.” says Natalie The white dress that the model wore was hand made especially for the shoot by Arwen Garmentry. The table décor complimented the theme with Cindy and Karin from The Bloom Room using modern, as well as intrinsically Moroccan type decor. Flower were kept to a minimum however succulents tied up the African elements beautifully.
