Weddings at Singita

March 22, 2011 - Events,Experience

Intimate settings made just for two…or a small group of friends and family…sunsets…hippos and elephants in the background…champagne…a river, or breathtaking vistas across the bush or plains.   How could more picture-perfect settings be created or orchestrated?  This is Africa and nothing could be a more beautiful backdrop for a wedding of a lifetime.

One of our favourite weddings at Singita Lebombo took place last year.  A New York couple now residing in Nashville, Tennessee, exchanged their vows in a truly intimate fashion – just the two of them.  The setting was breathtaking; at the confluence of two rivers with the low rumble of hippos in the background and the calls of fish eagles piercing the serene tranquility.

After the ceremony the blissful couple drank champagne and cut cake at a look-out point over N’wanetsi Gorge while the sun set over this memorable occasion.

More treasured memories were made when the DiCristinas were married at Singita Sweni.  A slightly larger affair but still truly intimate with a few family members seated around the couple.  Every detail was carefully hand-picked to grace the picturesque bush setting – candles, silk ribbons, hanging flowers, gently draped fabric, and lanterns.  The Singita Sweni team pulled out all the stops to make the afternoon ultimately romantic.

One of the most delectable recipes we will ever post – this one is a winner from our Singita Lebombo kitchen.  There’s no question you will fall in love with it.

Chilli and Pepper Jam

Ingredients

5 red peppers

3 yellow peppers

1 clove of garlic

1 shallot

1 tablespoon grated ginger (or less according to your own preference)

1 vanilla pod

85 ml white wine

35 ml while balsamico vinegar

2 fresh chillis

Instructions

Deseed the red peppers and cut them into small cubes.  Do the same with the yellow peppers.  Finely dice the garlic, shallot and ginger.  Place all of the ingredients into a pot and bring to a boil.  Season if necessary and simmer for 10 minutes – then remove the vanilla pod.  Continue to simmer until the jam forms a jelly if placed on a cold plate.  Fill clean jars with the chilli jam and store in the fridge.

Serve with charcuterie, cheese, bread sticks and olives.

Bon Appetit from Singita Lebombo Kitchen!
