It all started in 2014 when my sister phoned home from Hong Kong and asked my parents if she could host her very simple and casual wedding at Haycroft Farm. (Long before the wedding venue was even thought of)
She promised that all of the planning would be handled via email, and she reassured my parents that the preparations for her simple and casual wedding would be a breeze.
As time drew closer, we quickly realised that planning a wedding, even if the brief is simple and casual – can be a mammoth task. My love for planning and organising was finally put into practice. I gave up my corporate job in Sandton, and relocated to the midlands, with nothing more than a laptop and some sticky notes. And that’s where my dream of Haycroft Farm began.
I have developed the property, along with my dad, into an exclusive wedding venue and self-catering accommodation which sleeps sixty guests. We have converted some existing buildings, and added some brand new buildings. The old horse stud farm has set the scene, and this is evident throughout the property. I am a simple country girl, who loves planning and organising functions, whether it be an intimate dinner for 2, or a “simple & casual” wedding for 222!
I now lease the property from my parents, who are happily retired and enjoying the finer things in life.
I consider myself very lucky to have turned my passion into a small business, and look forward to showing you what I can offer. I have the most amazing team working with me, and we pride ourselves in making your day THE most special day of your lives.
I look forward to meeting you!
