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!).

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 of. So, you just got engaged. You should know why event coordinators will make all your wedding ideas become a reality. Not sure why? You need to know.

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.”

Summer Wedding at Landtscap

Summer Wedding at Landtscap

 

Couple

Kirsti and Justin

Venue

Landtscap, Stellenbosch

About the day

Kirsti and Justin flew from the UK to celebrate their dream summer wedding with friends and family in the Stellenbosch Winelands. We were delighted to have had the opportunity again to plan a wedding at Landtscap – it’s always a pleasure to work with the professional and friendly team there. The highlight of this wedding for us was the floral design by Leipzig which perfectly mirrored the landscape outside. The hanging “gardens” above each table and bunches of in season plants and flowers enveloped the room in the most exquisite scents and colours!

Thank you Kirsti and Justin, for trusting us with planning your wedding. You met us and saw the venue for the first time in the week before the wedding! That’s trust! I think we just clicked from the start and understood your vision – an intimate celebration of you love in a beautiful place with a view that sums up the beauty of the Cape.

From the couple

Thank you so much!! I must admit it was a huge decision to have our big day in The Cape knowing that we were handing over the control… but oh WOW! We couldn’t have asked for anything more… it was the most stress free wedding ever… everything went so so smoothly and we just had the most beautiful day, it really was just perfect! The setting, the venue, the food, the flowers, the decor, the make up and photos are stunning! Thank you so much to everyone who made it so special for us. Madri, you are a superstar.

Couple

Anicia and Nikola

Venue

Nooitgedacht Wine Estate, Stellenbosch

About the day

When an adventurous South African girl and a Serbian guy decide to get married (and you are lucky to get invited!), be assured it will be one of the most incredible celebrations you will experience. Anicia and Nikola both work as cabin crew for Emirates and met on a flight to Cape Town in 2015. It was not long before Nikola proposed in the Maldives on Anicia’s birthday in the most romantic way (a private candle lit dinner followed by a treasure hunt on the beach…). We are privileged to plan weddings for the best people and seeing how much love and pure happiness there are between couples such as Anicia and Nikola makes us smile for days. We hope you continue your journey and stay in love just the way you are!

From the couple

“For years and years to come our hearts will still smile at how perfect our wedding day was. What an absolute blessing it was to work with you, Madri and Niki. Your professionalism, kind heartedness and passion for the work you do really showed from day one till the very last minute of our wedding day. It was such a pleasure to have you on this journey with us, and not mention the amount of “bridal stress” you just lifted off our shoulders. Thank you cannot express enough the gratitude and gratefulness we have for the work you’ve done for us. Many many many thanks!“

A Wedding at Embassy Hill

A Wedding at Embassy Hill

 

Couple

Neda and Farshad

Venue

Embassy Hill, Constantia

About the day

Neda and Farshad contacted us two months before their wedding date searching for the perfect venue to host 150 guests.  All the guests were coming from Persia, Canada and other parts of the world!  It wasn’t long before Embassy Hill in Constantia (and us) were signed and booked – it was love at first sight.
There are many things to love about this wedding:
  • The couple – it was a tremendous joy to work alongside them to help make their wedding day dreams come true.
  • The pre-wedding ceremony prayer  – the couple and their closest family met for a short prayer in the sitting room at Embassy Hill before they walked down the aisle, together.
  • The couple walked down the aisle with their family.  The entrance of the two sets of parents, followed by their children, grandchildren and then the couple was a heartwarming and very intimate way of opening the ceremony.
  • The beautiful and mellow swing and jazz notes of Ike Moriz during pre-dinner drinks at the pool lawn.
  • The incredible floral arrangements by N Concepts and Designs that encompassed exactly what Neda wanted.
  • The surprise Zulu Dance performance just after main course (organised in secret by the groom and us).  Be sure to check out the pictures!

From the couple

“Of the hundreds of decisions we had to make regarding our wedding, choosing The Event Planners was by far the best!  We couldn’t be more happy with the professional and friendly service that Madri and her team provided.  Nothing was too much trouble, and it was clear from the outset that we were in good hands.  Their experience in the wedding industry was clearly displayed by the great suppliers, entertainers and artists (florist, photographer, videographer and wedding cake designer) they tailored to suite our preference.  We can’t thank The Event Planners enough for a flawless execution of our wedding day.”
