Weddings | Chapel

Tswalu Blue is a wedding planning and event management company owned by myself, Chrystelle Grovè. We are located on a picturesque game farm, just south of Johannesburg, Gauteng, south Africa in a secluded valley called Hartzenbergfontein.

The name "Tswalu Blue" was derived from the first part of the name of our guest farm and wedding venue, Tswalu Grove Safari Lodge. "Tswalu" is a Tswana word meaning "new beginning": A word most appropriate to weddings!

I chose the word, "blue" as most brides, to this day, still try and incorporate the rhyme "Something old, something new, Something borrowed, something blue..."

Opening a guest lodge on our game farm, was a dream of my husband, Johan and myself ever since we moved out of the city to the farm in 2003. We were fortunate enough to make this dream a reality and the lodge has been fully operational now since April 2011. Expanding the lodge into a wedding venue has always been part of the dream and building on the chapel commenced in February of this year, 2012.

A firm believer in offering my prospective clients the best service, whether it be guests in the lodge or a prospective bridal couple, I embarked on obtaining my Certificate in Advanced Wedding Planning from the SA School of Weddings. I have 20 years experience in the business world, having managed our own business since 1992. I am also a qualified interior designer.

Having a passion for people, a commitment to provide my guests with a memorable experience, I thrive on a challenge and making the most of any budget.

I am passionate about what I do, giving it my all in order to create that special moment, that "One Perfect Day..."

I am a creative thinker, believing that each client is unique, with their own ideas, dreams and visions.

Your dream day will be all about you...
