Paul & Serhat 27 December 2013

Dear Adele

We can’t thank you enough for everything you did for us. Our Wedding was AMAZING, EVERYTHING was perfect, we couldn’t be happier to have started our lives as a married couple at One&Only Cape Town.

All the best for the future,

Love Paul & Serhat

Jill & Kelly – 30 November 2013

Dearest Adele...

I honestly thought I'd died and gone to heaven - felt surreal, too good to be true.

Adele, Nicola, Ryan, Mauritha, Marcus and the extended One&Only team - doing your job... perhaps, OR making a dream a reality?

From my first communication with yourself, IT felt right. The corporate cancelling their provisional booking at Isola... clearly its meant to be. Plan a wedding in two months and it being executed in the manner it did, I am flabbergasted. The level of professionalism you and the team display is amazing. The attention to detail - WOW!

The ladies booked in at 2. We were assisted by a very friendly gentlemen, whom then escorted us to our suite. I loved every inch of our room, however the bath tub and the breathtaking views had to be the highlight. Before we knew it three hours had passed. We arrive at the pool deck and its beautiful... just the way I'd envisioned it. Apart from a few gushes of wind from mother nature, the ceremony was perfect.

A quick signing of the registry and then off to photo's we rushed. I could tell Lee-Ann was in her element... a real feast for the eyes the island provides. So a few here and there... and then we are directed to the spa's garden, a little gem Lee-Ann had scouted earlier the day. Our MC Shan gives us a time check and ensures us the guests are enjoying the pre-drinks. We proceed to Isola for our cocktail reception. The venue is set accordingly, cocktail tables scattered around and our fabulous wedding cake featured on a beautiful tall table. Its even more stunning than our initial visit. We get on with the formalities and we're on ques for dinner.

The highlight of the day begins at this point. Out come platters, the guests probably starving at this point, lol. They just keep coming. The meat station opens and the guests are keen for more. Its a feast fit for a King and everybody is stuffed. Later out comes the dessert, my favorite part of any meal. Its just as beautifully presented as the canapes - too good to eat, yet equally as tasty. The guests could not stop raving about the breathtaking setting, stunning venue and scrumptious food.

On our return to our suite we were surprised with treats. We concluded our magical stay with a yummy breakfast.

Wonderful experience, thank you.

Andrea & JP – 23 November 2013

Colone & Kevin - 02 November 2013

Good day Adele.

Marcus was absolutely fantastic, could never have asked for anyone better, the venue was amazing as well as the staff. I have received so many calls after the wedding from our Guests complimenting the venue as well as complimenting the service that was received on the night.

Thank you for spoiling us the way you did and for making us feel so special, we will never forget our wedding day and all the people involved in it.

Sarah & Daniel - 25 May 2013

Hi Adele

I just wanted to send you a quick mail to say a massive THANK YOU!

Thank you for all of your hard work with our wedding. I can't believe how amazingly smooth the day went.

There were only compliments from the guests - the food was amazing, the service was superb! Our two night stay was out of this world and I couldn't have asked for anything more.

Thank you for ensuring that Daniel and I could have the best possible wedding.

I will recommend the One&Only to every engaged couple I know.

Have a great week!

Kind Regards


Amelia & Werner - 03 May 2013

Dear Adele

I have been thinking about what to say to you and seriously can't seem to find the right words to justify my gratitude to you and your team!

What an AMAZING experience!!

Everything worked out perfectly and I felt like the most special person in the world…. I do find that incredible as I saw the following day you had another wedding on the go! That is truly amazing! Not once did I feel that I wasn't the focus or that it wasn't just my wedding or that I was just another bride…. and that is all due to you, Marcus and Madre!!

Thank you for EVERYTHING!!!

The venue, decor, food, professional staff and service, the hotel room, EVERYTHING was just wonderful and incredibly well organised!!

Because of you and your team, Marcus and Madre, this day was unforgettable - not just to Werner and myself BUT to every single guest who shared this day with us! And that is evident in their feedback!

I will still come and thank you all in person when I return to CT!

Love Amelia & Werner

Lauren & Wesley - 30 March 2013


Thanks so much for all your effort in helping us to achieve our dream wedding. From sending e-mails, to menu tasting and décor hiring…. to setting up the ceremony and ballroom and coordinating the wedding, wow, you really exceeded my expectations in making this very special moment in my life an absolute pleasure and an unforgettable experience! You are an incredible wedding co-ordinator and such a delight!

Marcus handled everything like a true gentleman. His assistance was so professional, a joy to be around!

The setup team and waitrons where incredible! Wine glasses where always topped up, tables where cleared at all times and food was served promptly… All the guests where blown away.

The food was incredible, exactly as we anticipated after the menu tasting…. I appreciate all the hard work that went into creating such gorgeous dishes!

Our stay was incredible…. Amazing staff, a breath-taking view, stunning room and such professional service with a smile. The One&Only truly lived up to its reputation in every way! I couldn’t be happier with my choice in wedding venue or the people who helped me to create my perfect wedding!

Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, to all who were involved!

Much love Lauren & Wesley

Janis & Jef - 23 March 2013

Married friends always try and advise the unwed to save their hard-earned cash from their proposed lavish wedding and rather get sunburnt and hung over on some exotic beach somewhere. I never got this advice and neither did my fiancée, and now wife, Janis. To me, the wedding is the first step in what will be a long journey, and should be a reflection of the style you'd like that journey to take, so starting off in a Courthouse seems like a bad omen.

We decided before we were engaged that we were going to get married in a proper fashion, surrounded by close friends and family, and at a memorable and luxurious venue. Beaches, wine farms, gardens, zoos and whatever else passes as an exotic wedding locale nowadays seemed passé and, at times, inconsiderate to the guests, who have to travel far and wide to sit on grass and be bothered by flies. We figured that holding the ceremony and reception at a central hotel would be ideal, and even unusual considering the current odd fascination with outdoor weddings. Living in Green Point, we’re surrounded by some of the world’s finest hotels, but there was only one real nominee for our special day and that was the One&Only, and we made the decision to meet with their Wedding Co-ordinator, Adele, and take a tour of the venue.

Obviously, the One&Only is a world-renowned hotel for guests, but this diamond holds an ace up its sleeve in its wedding venue and organisation. Once Adele showed us Isola on The Island, which is where our ceremony would be held, we were 100% convinced of our decision, and after showing us The Ballroom for the reception, we wanted to get married immediately! So, 13 months after our engagement, none of which was spent stressing over details thanks to Adele and her team, we did just that and the day was as memorable and luxurious as we could have hoped. Everything from the venue preparation and 5-star catering to the service and comfort was incredible. For that, we owe Adele, Marcus, Nicola, and the entire One&Only team a debt of gratitude for making our dreams come true, as I’m sure they have done, and will continue to do, for countless more couples.

Best regards,


Carman & Damien - 19 March 2013

To Adele, Marcus and the rest of the team at One&Only Cape Town,

Damien and myself would like to express our sincere appreciation for your great service and dedication. We could not have asked for better coordinators! The whole day was so magical for us and filled with lots of fun moments, thanks to you. Damien and I cannot thank you enough for creating a wedding that far exceeded our expectations.

Our guests raved on about how beautiful the reception looked and how tasty the food was. It was, as most of them said, "top class!".

Here's to looking at renewing our vows at no other place.... but One&Only Cape Town!

Thank you again, and best wishes to you all.

Carman & Damien
