Nick says Gatsby found his real Daisy

“The Great Gatsby”

Gatsby found his real daisy – This Amazing wedding of Neil and Leanne on the 13th of September 2019 had us REVELING in the beautiful love story.


We at Chez Charlene 5 Star Wedding and Function Venue, Pretoria – Gauteng do not have to go back to 1922 to appreciate this love story. We had a real-life Gatsby and his REAL Daisy hosting a special event, as Gatsby does best.

Round tables decorated with white luxurious linen, high statement-hourglass black and white centrepieces, filled with the most beautiful peacock, black and white feathers and draped with white shimmering stringed pearls all designed by Charlene Georgiades at Chez Charlene Venue, and our in-house décor company. The Wedding Emporium added their finishing touches with beautiful White King Proteas and Moodlight Candles creating the atmosphere with beautiful candles and pearls.

Neil and Leanne had a slightly different plot to that the book reads; they found each other a little later in life, rather than earlier. Neil was full of surprises and he arranged for the best entertainment of the evening yet. Entertainment that would leave the guests surprised, excited and joyful. Neil did not only host and celebrate his 50th Birthday Party, he secretly surprised all his guests and got married to the love of his life, Leanne on the exact same day.

Neil stood outside with his guests whilst waiting for the entertainment of a lifetime. His green light is coming to his dock here at Chez Charlene 5 Star Wedding and Function Venue. Music playing spontaneously whilst Leanne Daughter – Siena and flower girls danced their way in between the guests with the softest and cutest mannerisms. Bridesmaid to follow with tears of joy. Leanne walking down the aisle with her son – Trent, giving her away to the love of her life.

Platters served by butlers, delicate canapés to tickle the sensation of each guest. Our Executive Chef Derrick and team of chefs at Chez Charlene venue outdid themselves once again. Presentation and quality, 5-star!

Photobooth with a The Great Gatsby Backdrop created with Antique Candelabras, Feathers and Pearls, set up in the middle of the venue captured special memories to last forever. A Gin Bar and Whiskey Trolley added to the enjoyment and entertainment of the crowd.

This is Neil and Leanne’s forever together version of, A HAPPILY EVER AFTER.

The Chez Charlene 5 Star Wedding and Function Venue team were honoured to participate in such a beautiful love story that had us remising “The Great Gatsby” love story written by Author F. Scott Fitzgerald. Thank you Leanne and Neil for starting your FOREVER with our venue.

Many blessings and beautiful wishes to you both,

Chez Charlene Team,
