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 an 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!).

About the day

Christiana and Sébastien knew exactly what they wanted for their big day: a spectacular celebration without limits with their friends and family from all over the world.  All guests flew in from abroad and everyone on the guest list were French-speaking (including the bride and groom!).  Hundreds of emails, Skype-calls and Whatsapp chats over the course of two months culminated in a dreamy fairy tale wedding on 8th March 2017 at Val de Vie.

THANK YOU to the fantastic service providers who understood our vision of the couple’s dream and helped to create an unforgettable day!  Scroll down to see who made up this dream team.

A Romantic Proposal in Cape Town

A Romantic Proposal in Cape Town

 

Join us in marvelling over this coordinated wedding proposal in Cape Town.  Kuhle first contacted us in early in July, eager for us to help him arrange a romantic and unforgettable proposal to Angiswa.  They both live in Johannesburg and Kuhle planned to fly his fiancé-to-be down to Cape Town for a birthday weekend later in July.  We knew exactly what to do.  With Cape Town caught up in the middle of a freezing and rainy Winter, we turned to the 12 Apostles Hotel, which has the perfect plan B’s in place should the weather be too unfavourable.  With the lovely setting and tremendous views of the Atlantic Ocean, it is the most perfect setting for an intimate and private proposal.

The couple spent the weekend at the 12 Apostles, being spoiled from top to toe.  Spoils included a helicopter ride from the V&A Waterfront, massages in the privacy of their room and breakfast in bed on Sunday morning.

The plan:  As predicted, the Cape Town weather did not play along that well on Saturday morning and their planned private picnic was moved to their room’s balcony with views over the ocean.  We arranged a couple shoot for them at the hotel as part of Angiswa’s birthday gift from Kuhle.  At the start of the shoot, he bent down on one knee, popped the question with the ring in hand and from looking at the pictures, you can guess what her answer was.

Adele Kloppers, these photo’s are amazing, thank you for being there to capture the moment.

And congratulations to Kuhle and Angiswa – we wish you a happy life together!

A Cape Town Wedding

A Cape Town Wedding

 

What is more perfect than a Cape Town wedding with a beautiful African sunset? Every now and then you experience a wedding you wish you can have over and over again because everything just fell into place perfectly. Some things can not be “coordinated”. A  sunset, mist rolling over the ocean at just the right moment (look at these stunning portraits at Bakoven!), the light of the setting sun on the mountain while family and friends from all over the world celebrate a special union with good food and music… all these elements played a roll in giving Candice and Gary their dream wedding.

Candice is American and Senior Design Operations Manager at Ralph Lauren in New York – she is beautiful, stylish, unpretentious, has an impeccable eye for detail and knew exactly what she wanted for their wedding day. Gary is South African and resides with his new bride (and soon new born baby!) in NYC. He was determined that their wedding should be celebrated at his childhood home and where his parents still live – Geneva Slopes in Camps Bay. So, he brought his bride to Africa.

And what a good idea it was. Non-traditional weddings make us happy and that is what they wanted – an intimate gathering stripped of the expected. We loved every moment. Chic, with just a touch of Africa.

Enjoy these images by Catherine Mac (Gary is also a professional photographer and Catherine was carefully hand-picked after much deliberation).

Do scroll down to the bottom to look at the team who help us create this beautiful day!

The couple also treated their guests to a personalised wine tour in the week prior to the wedding to show off true South African hospitality and top class wines. The Event Planners planned the day to the “t” and hand-picked Babylonstoren, Vrede en Lust and Tokara as the wine estates of choice.

Candice and Gary, you are our perfect clients, thank you for trusting us with your wedding day.

“Thank you all so much for making our wedding night so seamless and perfect. We couldn’t have done it without you!!!!
The night honestly could not have been more perfect. It was an absolute pleasure working with you all.
Best,
Candice and Gary”

On the Day Wedding Coordinator

On the Day Wedding Coordinator

 

You have organised most of the wedding yourself, perhaps with the help of the wedding venue staff, but you still need the peace of mind that everything will run smoothly on the day itself, without you or your wedding party stressing about details.  This summary of what to expect from an On the Day Wedding Coordinator:

First Meeting

At this meeting (face to face or Skype) we go through all the details of the wedding suppliers involved in the day and draft a Function Sheet and Timeline.  Making sure there are no gaps in the planning.

One Week Before Wedding Date

The Timeline will be sent to all the suppliers, which will also include all important contact details, maps etc.

On the Day

On the day we will be there one hour before the start of the ceremony.  At this time we will do a final check of all set up.  We will also ensure that all involved parties are getting ready and things are all running to plan.  Allowing you to relax and enjoy the moment.

We will be there throughout the wedding celebrations, making sure that everything runs to the timeline and that you can enjoy a stress free day.

A Stellenbosch Winelands Wedding

A Stellenbosch Winelands Wedding

 

Chane and Dean tied the knot on an early winter’s day in May at the beautiful Landtscap outside Stellenbosch.  It was a perfect Stellenbosch Winelands Wedding!

It was a really really cold day… but inside the air was filled with so much warmth and love. Both being born and bred in Namibia, most of their guests travelled from far to the fair Cape for this celebration.  And what celebration it was!  

Chane and Dean’s biggest wish was to have the best time with their family and friends, and they did!  We loved being part of their wedding day and working alongside such an organised bride who knew exactly what she wanted for her Stellenbosch Winelands Wedding.  Our favourite parts?  We adored the bridesmaids dresses and the groomsmen’s outfits!  And the way our couple adore each other – Chane and Dean, you are the sweetest couple and we wish you the most beautiful future together!

What did the couple have to say?

“We were really happy with the service provided by THE EVENT PLANNERS and Madri was absolutely amazing! She guided us every step of the way and met our every need. Our wedding day was everything we could have asked for and more, and we would like to thank Madri for her excellent service! We would definitely highly recommend THE EVENT PLANNERS to anyone looking to hire a co-ordinator. Dankie vir al jou moeite Madri, jy is a ster – D&C”
