Kirsty & David
We loved Kirsty and Dave’s August wedding at Minas and used the opportunity to work with warm rich colours and foods. Although August heralds the end of the Winter season – it can still be really chilly up here in the mountains! Kirsty and Dave wanted to play on the winterish theme and bring in golds and rich reds and maroon’s and we wanted to carry this warmth through to the food. We suggested a menu with deeply flavoured curries (a favourite of Kirsty’s) preceded by what we knew was Davids favourite South African “Biltong” soup for starters. Kirsty and Dave first got to know our venue through the quarterly food markets hosted here at Minas so I knew they loved and would appreciate good food. Kirsty told me that when she attended the very first market she also instantly fell in love with the venue and told her friend that if she got married it would have to be at Minas! So…when Dave popped the question a while later they both knew that the venue was already a done deal! This wonderful couple live close by near Polokwane and have subsequently become firm friends! They still visit regularly and are avid supporters of our market and brewery!!
