Die Woud Wedding

The Couple

Nadine & Christiaan

The Venue

Die Woud

About the day

Die Woud in the Western Cape was the perfect destination wedding venue for this couple from Johannesburg, South Africa.  With their busy work and and life schedules, it was important for them to have a wedding planner right from the start to manage all the suppliers, styling and on the ground logistics. We had a wonderful team involved in creating this exquisite setting for their perfect wedding day.

From the couple

“As a severe over-thinker, I had moments of doubt throughout the process – Perhaps my dress wasn’t the right one, perhaps the groomsmen will forget their suits at home, perhaps the majority of the guests won’t come to the wedding.

Nikkie Fivaz captured a moment on camera where we saw the venue for the first time and, for both of us, this photo encapsulates exactly what we felt. Every single puzzle piece came together to create a beautiful harmony of emotions.

And, in that moment, we had never been more grateful for the trivial concerns we had during the process. We realised that we had not once worried about the DJ, the flowers, the food. All the things that created the perfect wedding was all taken care of. We were allowed to experience the roller coaster of emotions as they come and go without doubting that our big day will be perfect. Niki took care of absolutely everything.

As we stood under the most beautifully curated selection of flowers, we finally realised what everyone meant when they said that it is truly the happiest day of your life.”

Destination Wedding at Boschendal

The Couple

Barbara & Bruno

The Venue

Boschendal Wine Estate

About the day

Barbara and Bruno travelled from their home in Vienna to celebrate their wedding with family and friends in South Africa.  They chose the beautiful Boschendal as their wedding venue, making use of both The Olive Press and The Werf Restaurant.  Boschendal has plenty of luxury self catering accommodation options and having all the guests stay on the farm, made the entire celebration even more special and intimate.

The ceremony took place on the lawn in front of The Olive Press, beneath a Bedouin tent and with the majestic mountains as their backdrop. After drinks and canapés, the bridal party made their way up to The Werf Restaurant for dinner and dancing.

It was such an honour to work with Barbara and Bruno and to be part of this wedding. We wish them all the happiness for their future!

Camps Bay Elopement Wedding

Couple

Ruth & Saul

Venue

Glen Beach, Camps Bay, Cape Town

About the day

Ruth and Saul travelled from the UK to come say “I do” on one of Cape Town’s most beautiful beaches, Glen Beach in Camps Bay. They were accompanied by an adorable and charming “page boy” who stole our hearts from the very first second – their baby boy, Frank.

Their hired beach house was situated right on Glen Beach – from here they leisurely strolled down to the beach for their nuptials… absolute perfection! There were so many sweet touches… Their confetti was made up of dried flower petals from loved ones’ gardens back home in the UK. Saul surprised Ruth by secretly bringing her grandmother’s vintage brooch and special bunting made by her mom from the UK. The brooch was fixed in her bouquet and the bunting framed their flower arch.

What we loved the most about this intimate wedding?  Ruth’s understated elegance and natural beauty in her Oscar de la Renta gown, being witnesses to these two special people’s nuptials and the incredible sunset that sealed a perfect afternoon.

From the Couple

“Madri, thank you so much for everything. You did it all, so thank you so much. Saul and I were saying what a difference it made to have lovely people around us like you and Niki. And thank you for the care and time you had for Frank too. We could totally relax and have our photos done because he was with you guys. Thank you for fitting perfectly into our teeny tiny relaxed wedding. And thanks for the bubbles!”

Timeless Romantic Wedding at Cavalli Estate

Couple

Hsin & Sean

Venue

Cavalli Estate, Stellenbosch

About the day

Hsin and Sean stole our hearts from day one.  An inspiring couple and just so so in love – with each other and  life.  We were delighted when they chose Cavalli Estate for their multi-cultural wedding.  A combination of South African, Taiwanese and Portuguese guests ensured a very lively party and 100’s of memories.  Our favourite part of the day was the flowers flowers flowers!  Hsin opted for a very classic white look with touches of soft pink and gold.  Taiwanese guests names were translated into Mandarin on the seating plan and personalised ‘Africa’ shaped menus.  Hsin is a travel agent and included a subtle travel theme in the stationery design – printed invitations, order of service cards, seating plan, menus and thank you tags for the guests gifts (a bottle of SA wine of course!).

From the couple

“Where to even begin… We were recommended The Event Planners by a friend and after meeting with Madri we decided she would be the perfect person to help us plan our big day.  She set up meetings, came along to meetings and helped coordinate everything for us – from choosing the stationery, the food tasting to the venue decor and flowers.  She suggested vendors and never overstepped or pushed ideas on us – always letting us choose what we wanted. Madri always made sure we knew what had to be done or paid for on a timely basis (it was so helpful having someone remind us of these things).
I never ONCE felt stressed about our big day.  And when I walked into the wedding venue and saw everything finally come together for the first time, my heart was so, so full.  The venue was beyond beautiful and it was everything I expected and more.  I have Madri and her great team to thank for making it the fairytale wedding that it was!”

3 Reasons Why You Need A Wedding Coordinator

Wedding coordinators are pretty much gifts from the gods. Knights in shining armour, usually working behind the scenes, bursting at the seams to make sure that your nuptials turn out even more successful than you have dreamt. So, you just got engaged.

Cost Effective

Don’t worry about rumours that event coordinators are a waste of money or too expensive. Professional event coordinators can benefit you in so many ways, one of which is delivering the wedding you have in mind without the stress-factor. Especially if you are planning a destination wedding and are based in a different country. They are trained and experienced in handling all levels of event management, from invitations to venue selection, menu details to flowers and decor, music and entertainment to lighting requirements and photography. They are able to match your style, personality and budget to the most suitable and trustworthy service providers, without you having to work through 100’s of options, never knowing if you have ticked all the “wedding planning” boxes.

Coordinators Know What Works And What Does Not

Even if you have researched wedding planning tips, you won’t be able to multi-task and be everywhere on your wedding day. You do need someone who knows what works and what does not. Your wedding day defines who you are, so you do not want to make costly mistakes or have to deal with an unforeseen behind-the-scenes crisis while you would rather be celebrating and be present with your guests. Reputable and established coordinators know the pitfalls to avoid and rocks to climb to make your wedding unforgettable.

You Want To Get Married, Not Organize

Chances are, because you want to have the wedding of your dreams, you started searching for ideas and other beautiful weddings that took place at your favourite venue. And that’s where it should end. It is ideal to enjoy a stress-free wedding day and let your event coordinator liaise with the all the service providers, taking your ideas, turning it into reality while ensuring everything runs smoothly –  just as you envisioned.

If you don’t want to stress AND deliver a grand event on the day, a wedding coordinator is a priceless assistant you should bring on board.

About the day

What a wedding! Alhan and Adib stole our hearts right from the start and it was just wonderful to work with a couple who trusted us to bring the look they envisioned for their wedding day to life. White white and more white abundant flowers combined with the luxury of hundreds of candles and the sparkle of crystal chandeliers worked so well for this mid winter wedding. What’s more, they were blessed with the most beautiful, sunny day with blue skies right in the middle of winter.  We are publishing this wedding in two parts because there are just so many stunning images to share and oh my… the camera loves Alhan!

From the couple

“I just wanted to thank you for all the hard work and effort you put towards our day. It was absolutely everything and more than what I imagined. Thank you times a million.”
