    Umthunzi Hotel is situated on the lower south coast of kwazulu natal, we have had the priviledge of doing hair and makeup for many brides at this beautiful venue. The staff are always welcoming and happy to assist us in any way. We mainly work in the honeymoon suit, which is kitted out and so dreamy!One of the best honeymoon suits we have seen. – Kiss the Bride hair & makeup
