Read what our couples have to say about our service:
Lisa and Lewis
On the 19th of December 2019 at The 12 Apostles Hotel in Cape Town we tied the knot. Andred Hayward was our Marriage Officer. Prior to or wedding Andred kindly took the time to skype call us in the summer time to find out what our expectations were for our big day. Andred also met with us prior to the wedding and took on board the simplicity both of us were hoping for in our ceremony.
We decided to write our own vows and Andred totally embraced them and he made some wonderful prayers and statements that crystallised our visions for our future together.
He was such an wonderful part of our journey; he conducted the ceremony with fun, enthusiasm and love and we hope you too have the same magical experience we had. Thank you Mr & Mrs B x
Tim and Jordache
From the bottom of our hearts, Tim and I would like to thank you so much for putting together one of the most beautiful ceremonies that most people (Tim and I included) have ever experienced. From your words to your presence, it was absolutely amazing! Every single guest came up to us to ask who you were as you were brilliant! Thank you again so much!
Simon & Steph
We just wanted to say thank you for making our day absolutely perfect. From the brief time we spent together in Cape Town and from the words that we chose you managed to make our ceremony incredibly personal and poignant to us. We felt that we were being married by someone who had known us for years. We could not have wished for a better start to our married life. We both thought you were a really genuinely lovely person and feel lucky to have been married by you. Thank you again. Simon and Steph
Mona and Luvuyo
Thank you so much Andred for making our wedding such an amazing day! The ceremony was absolutely perfect!! Despite the challenge of our differing backgrounds and faiths, we really felt like you captured our love for each other! From the first meeting with you, we were so impressed. Our families and friends continue to talk about how special it was and how moved they were by your sermon. It was so special that you were able to meet with us ahead of time and take away all our worries about our ceremony. We really felt comfortable with you from the get go.
Max and Caitlin
A huge thank you to Andred. Our ceremony was so moving. Max and I are living by his words and are so grateful for the insight and wisdom. We have received waves of congratulations and compliments from our guests who were deeply touched by the ceremony that was just so very meaningful and full of love, that seemed to set the tone for the rest of the evening.
Shelley and Johan
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the most beautiful ceremony! You conducted it with such warmth that we felt like you had known us for ages. Thank you for making it so personal and so special. I was the one who didn’t want a wedding, but at the end of the day I didn’t want to take my dress off. It’s a day I will treasure forever.
Dr Alexia Vassilatos & Paul vd Westhuizen
Your officiation of our wedding was absolutely beautiful. Your words were wise, kind, and resonated strongly with us. You clearly love what you do and you do it beautifully. You truly contributed to making our wedding ceremony a very powerful and memorable moment in our lives together. Thank you so much for having been part of it.
Zunia and Karen
How do we thank you for the most perfect service? You got Karen and I completely and for that we will be forever grateful. You balanced the completely different personalities of the two of us 100%. It was a moving and touching ceremony, exactly as it is supposed to be. Thank you for setting the tone for a beautiful evening, the start of our married life.
Tom and Jacqui Higgins
Just a short note to say a sincere thank-you for the very meaningful wedding ceremony which you performed for us on Saturday. All of our friends and family thought that you had known us for years and that you were a personal friend.
Timo and Evalina Sauer
Once again THANK YOU so much for your services Andred! I now can’t imagine anyone else leading us on our special day. Your reassurance throughout the planning and those moments leading to the ceremony have been more than we could ask for! You’ve got a grace about you that calms and puts everyone at ease:)
Anval and Natasha Petersen
We would like to formally thank you and Alison for the great assistance with our wedding. We know that you do it on a daily basis, but we really appreciate how you guys made us feel special. Alison, my guests cannot stop talking about how great you conducted the ceremony. From the bottom of our hearts thank you very much.
Brandon and Anchen Bester
Anch and I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for the absolutely amazing ceremony that you gave us on our wedding day – it was perfect and really set the tone for the rest of the day ? Everyone that we spoke to commented on how good the ceremony was.
Shannon and Nic Boyd
We just wanted to thank you for the major role you played on our wedding day. We couldn’t have made a better choice in the person who would join us for eternity! You kept us calm and kept both us and our guests entertained. And most importantly you helped us celebrate and share our love with those closest to us. We so appreciate your part in this momentous occasion in our lives! Thank you so very much.
Deirdre and Phillip Cronje
We really enjoyed the ceremony you put together for us and I received plenty of compliments. Some of the people wanted to know from what church you are and how I found you. You really made us feel special. If I had a choice to change my wedding I would diffidently not change my ceremony. It was really special to us.
