Lansmore Masa Square has delighted fashion tastemakers and brides and grooms to be with the launch of the hotel’s inaugural Wedding Expo.
Billed to be an annual event in the wedding and hospitality scene, the first ever Lansmore Wedding Expo was held on Saturday 20th April 2013 at Lansmore Masa Square.
The Expo saw the hotel and the Masa Centre piazza transformed into the ideal wedding venue with industry professionals from both Botswana and South African showcasing their offerings and talents.
Set against the entertaining medleys from popular DJ’s DJ O’Neal and DJ Kellz, the Wedding Expo saw designers including local names Lebo Merafhe and Black Trash, showing off their designs. In addition, South African fashion house, Fundudzi by Craig Jacobs, delighted visitors to the
Expo with his now infamous sense of style and riveting design pieces. Also on show were wedding cakes by Lebo Mokgatle from Creative Planet which intrigued all through their sheer beauty.
Finally, visitors to the Expo were also treated to a mock church ceremony set up within the hotel’s banqueting area and cake and champagne sampling to follow the tantalising meals offered at in-house restaurant, La Touche de Provence.
, “Every wedding is different and every bride and groom deserve to see all the possibilities of what they might have for their big day,” said Lansmore Masa Square Sales and Marketing Manager Botho Mogami.
She further said for everyone else, weddings are celebrations whether or not you are close to the wedded couple.
“We’ve had visitors to the Expo that came simply because they love food, fashion, music and that celebratory feeling that a wedding promises,” she said.
With a growing reputation for playing host to some of Gaborone’s most exclusive and glamorous events, the Lansmore Masa Square offered the perfect backdrop to a showcasing of design and talent across the board and proving that it is not only the hotel industry that Lansmore is redefining, but the kind of experience we are now becoming accustomed to.
The event also saw a number of visitors walking away with even more than they bargained for.
Bride-to-be Lucy Mamelodi of Mogoditshane found herself the recipient of a P50,000.00 wedding package.
Winners also walked away with a wedding dress valued at R150,00.00, a weekend away to Hotel Cardoso in Mozambique, and weekend away to Leopard rock in Zimbabwe, respectively.
