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.

Thanks to all the wonderful service providers who helped us plan and execute this wedding! Scroll down to see more about our dream-team.

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!”

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.

A Summer Wedding in Tulbagh

A Summer Wedding  in Tulbagh

 

Janet and Henri are both South African, residing in Trondheim, Norway.  They decided to celebrate their summer wedding in Tulbagh at Montpellier, one of our favourite wine estates with its Cape Dutch Manor House, dreamy chapel on a hill, endless rolling vineyards, lawns, gardens, hidden paths and tree-lined walkways.  So, we were more than delighted when they chose us to plan their special day in this amazing setting.  Many lengthy Skype calls between Trondheim and Cape Town (over several months) later and here you have the result!

Janet and Henri’s guests were transported up to the chapel by the farm’s truck, welcomed by ice cold bottled water.  The Montpellier chapel is one of the farm’s most beautiful landmarks with stunning views over the vineyards and surrounding mountains and its breathtaking interior.  It was a sultry hot December day, and the cold water and cool breeze blowing through the chapel’s windows were welcoming and refreshing…  Pre-drinks and canapé’s were served on the lawn in front of the Manor House with Werner Denner entertaining guests with live instrumental music.

The reception was held in the farm’s famous dome cathedral, a wine cellar lined with wine barrels and bottles from floor to ceiling.  Janet and Henri fell in love with the venue the way it is and opt for natural, earthy and indigenous floral touches.

We are absolutely in love with their wedding photos by Charl from Agape Studio.  Enjoy them and scroll down for the list of service providers without whom this day would not have been possible.
