The Wedding of Jackie Cameron & Ben Wessels
Jackie Cameron School of Food & Wine
2017/2018 and 2015/2016 students impress all guests at the marriage of Jackie Cameron and Ben Wessels
I couldn’t be prouder to be sharing this with all of you. For marrying the love of my life, Ben Wessels. Having my bestest sister by my side: Sheldeen Cameron and great friend: Nardia Adams. Walking down the aisle with my father: John Cameron and having him giving me away. Having my mother Mauveen Cameron helping me dress. To having the many little surprises that Rainer and Gabi Kirschke presented to us throughout the day.
For my 2017/2018 Students cooking to the standard of which I have shown them and expect - I couldn’t have been prouder of them. To having two of my 2015/2016 students involved as well, Kate Cousins running the show and Cara Conway assisting in front-of-house.
To Brett Thomson (Sun Safaris) and Courtney (Sun Destinations) for organising and having us for the best honeymoon experience ever at “Africa on Foot” and “Nthambo Tree Camp” in the Kruger. Together with wine maker: Dewaldt Heynes at Saronsberg Cellar for having us to stay at this most beautiful wine estate. What an absolute treat that we shall never forget.
To having my past staff, who worked with me a few years back, work at our wedding helping out on the front-of-house side: Zee Mnculwane, Mbulelo Mahlungulu, John Motaung, Thabani Nzimande, Thabiso Mgoza and Luthando Mnculwane … How special!
And of course to the TOP BILLING Team: David, Pierre, Rhulani, Patience, Simone, Erica, Stefan and Carlize And special thanks to dear Ann Rennie for putting the word out to Top Billing to cover our special day.
Thanks to Micky and Jules for opening up their home for the Men to get changed.
A day we will never forget for many reasons but especially for the uniqueness of what made up our team-so much love was shown not only between Ben and I but by everyone who was apart of our special day. A true team effort.
