Jaco van Loggerenberg, the proud groom from one of our most recent weddings, lets us in on their special day at Waterkloof.
HOW…did you meet?
We met at my family’s coffee shop. Bonita was helping out at the centre’s wine festival that evening, and she had two hours to spare for a coffee. We starting chatting and, as she left, I wanted to ask her out but, at that moment, a client entered the coffee shop and I lost my courage. Just before our shop closed, I steeled my nerves and made my way to the wine festival… and that’s when I told Bonita that I wanted to see her again!
WHY…did you choose Waterkloof?
Being in the wedding industry, I didn’t want to have a standard wine estate wedding. Bonita, on the other hand, was happy with a wine estate, so we had to find the middle ground. We’ve both always enjoyed going to great restaurants for dinner and Waterkloof was that perfect combination: a wonderful restaurant with phenomenal views, amazing food, wonderful wines and perfect service. The choice was easy.

WHAT…is your favourite memory of the day?
I remember that a good friend of mine always said, “The best moment of any wedding is when your bride walks down the aisle”, and I can completely agree with him. Seeing Bonita walk down the aisle was the most wonderful feeling I’ve ever had, and is something that I’ll remember and cherish forever.
