Karike & Werner

Martijn Roos -8617

Back in March 2017 we had the honor to be a part of this beautiful couple’s wedding day.

Karike & Werner had a truly extraordinary weekend with us, celebrating their family and friends and showing the type of love you can see when being around them. The Roos brothers did not disappoint in capturing this with their combined photography ad videography! Just take a look at the amazing video below showcasing the wonderful weekend in the Nuy Valley.

The weekend started off with a get together of the family and friends the evening before. They had a pizza tuk-tuk catering for them the evening and we provided drinks. They had some fun and games with family including Giant Jenga and our Italian bowl set.

Saturday the guys kicked off the day with a Nuy Valley Tractor Trailer drive to Willowcreek for olive oil tasting and Conradie Family Vineyards for wine tasting and finished at Leipzig with wine tasting. All while the girls started their day out with make-up, bubbly, fun and laughter with her bridesmaids.

A beautiful ceremony took place in our garden underneath the century old oak tree and this is also where both of them said their own vows to each other. Werner promised all his love to Karike and promised she would never walk alone again. He also promised to walk hand in hand with their path leading forward.

She promised where he’ll go, she’ll go and stay where he is. His God is hers and she chooses him above all with all of his strengths and weakness. She chooses him and him alone and is looking forward for the road ahead.

The group went to take photos at the amphitheater and we quickly turned the ceremony area into their pre-drinks area.  Hosted outside in the garden with games for young and old. Guests were spoiled with Saggy Stone beer, cocktails, while waiters roamed around with gourmet canapes.

Their colour scheme green, white & touches of gold. The reception so beautiful with candles surrounding the entire hall. Slow braised Red Wine Lamb Shanks was a sensation for main, while others enjoyed a Creamed White Leipzig Chicken dish as an option. Guests danced the night away with decadent canape-style desserts to snack on.

The crowd were definite dancers and the floor was full the entire evening. They opened the  dancefloor with bubbles surrounding the two of them, upon their second song all guest popped crackers filled with golden confetti and danced the night away.

MIXING BUSINESS & PLEASURE

We’ve observed that activities are forming a trend when it comes to conferences, as most companies try to create a memorable experience for the delegates. Employees are more involved, rather than the usual full-day conference where they are pumped full with information and head home worn-out and exhausted. Rather incorporate an activity to keep delegates enthusiastic, resulting in a focused group and productiveness.

Team-building activities are less popular at conferences, as companies focus on team-building as a separate unity. It requires a lot of energy and might leave delegates drained, resulting in distraction from the session. Minor activities allow delegates to relax while having fun, leaving delegated fresh and interested in the session. You won’t go wrong with activities such as wine tasting, craft beer tasting, wine blending, ice breakers, wine pairing or even take delegates to see the bottling process at a winery. Ice breakers take participants out of their comfort zone and making them feel part of the team.

The venue of the conference plays a big role when hosting a conference. Taking delegates away from the hustle and bustle of the city life and into peaceful surroundings is essential. Most of these venues provide interesting activities and luxury accommodation.

Contact us for more information on our conference packages and activities at info@leipzigcountryhouse.co.za. Luxury accommodation is available.

Classical Cars

We love to brag with the Classical Car groups that visit us, we had the privilege of hosting a classical car group, where Bentleys and MG’s turned heads at their arrival.

The group enjoyed a lovely stroll with the scenic road towards our Guest House. Guests rested in our beautiful luxury accommodation and was spoiled by a 3-course candlelight dinner in our century old wine cellar. The next day guests were taken on a tractor drive through the Nuy Valley. After exploring the area, guests were treated with a personal wine tasting experience by the Winery Manager before another delicious dinner. One of the guests performed a beautiful song to end off their stay.

Leipzig is the perfect destination for a cycling group

Recently, Chris Willemse Cycles had a cycling tour and as luck would have it, we were one of their stops.  Once again I realised how perfect our destination is for groups like these.

With a breath-taking view, cyclists love the journey to our farm where they are surrounded by vineyards, mountains and nature’s beauty. Once arrived at the destination, friendly staff allocates the group’s baggage to their specific rooms and they are shown towards their room.  We set up a lovely outdoor lunch for the group to regain their strength.

A massage parlour is set up in our Chapel, where members unwind with calming music while enjoying a massage. The tranquil setting is perfect for relaxation with a gorgeous lookout onto the vineyards.

When members have their ‘free-time’, they usually spend it around the swimming pool or stroll through our Tortoise Sanctuary and the vineyards.

An assigned spot is used to clean and service the cycle bikes, which is then stored in an alarm-secured area.

Don’t fear, the group will be able to leave with a set of clean cycling gear. Laundry can be handed in by us upon arrival & given back the morning after breakfast.

Members are treated with a special Tractor-Wagon Sundowner in the vineyards and ended off with an in-depth, wine tasting & cellar tour experience before dinner. Dinner is served in a Century Old Wine Cellar exclusively set-up for the group.

Heading off to bed in our luxury accommodation, is considered a treat after such a long day. Guests are enjoying nature to the fullest and still have the convenience and peacefulness of luxury accommodation. Early rise and shine? No problem for us, a big buffet menu awaits the group before heading off to their next destination.
