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!).

Feast your eyes (thanks to Catherine Mac!) and ensure to scroll down to the bottom to see the dream-team of service providers!

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 Wedding in Plettenberg Bay II

A Wedding in Plettenberg Bay II

 

Remember Suzanne and Gerhard’s beautiful winter wedding in Plettenberg Bay we published a while back?  If you missed it, find it here.  Well, this is Part II.  We had to split their wedding into two blog posts because we just could not get enough of the way Adel Ferreira captured this magical wedding!

The wedding has also been featured in Wedding Inspirations Magazine’s Autumn 2017 edition.  Watch their wedding film here!

This is how the bride describes the best part of their wedding day:  “The celebration!  Having all our friends in one room, as we are from different parts of the country and currently live in Cape Town, so it was incredibly special for us to share it with all the important people in our lives.”

And her advice to future brides and grooms?  “Relax.  If you’ve done your research well when choosing your service providers, you should be able to trust them completely.  Focus on the look and feel of the wedding you want rather than obsessing over the finer details.  As your service providers are experts in their fields, give them some creative freedom – you’ll be amazed by the results.  Work on a budget before you start figuring out any details to eliminate a lot of heartache later.  And get a wedding planner – it made all the difference.  I enjoyed every second of the day, including the build-up, and Niki from The Event Planners was a big part of it!”

A Summer Garden Wedding

A Summer Garden Wedding

 

Late last year we had the privilege to coordinate Jade and Brad’s summer garden wedding – a delightful morning ceremony followed by canapé’s around the pool and lunch on the terrace.  The venue:  hidden gem Ibis House in the Constantia Valley, which we grew to love so much! This superb Cape colonial villa is set on seven acres of lush private garden.  A network of ponds and streams run the length of the property creating a truly magical atmosphere. Jade and Brad are both South African, but recently relocated to London to pursue their careers.

The highlights of the wedding?  Jade’s incredible dress (have you seen the back?).  She has a thing for bows.  The giant floral heart suspended from the tree at the ceremony by Flowers in the Foyer.  The ceremony walk-in song!  The couple chose Everlong by the Foo Fighters, beautifully performed live by Kai Liam Connor with vocals on guitar – the most mellow and romantic version of the song you will ever hear.  The food.  Salt and Pepper Catering outdid themselves as usual and served the perfect al fresco lunch silver service style.  James’ Chargrilled Beef Fillet with Bearnaise sauce and Fillet of Norwegian Salmon with Salsa Verdi were the highlights.

Once in a while you come across a wedding which has a secret ingredient, it’s a synergy of real love, laughter, togetherness, true happiness and a focus on the things that are really important.  This was one of them.

Jade and Brad are made for each other and we are so grateful to have been part of their wedding journey!

Wolfkop Styled Wedding Shoot

A few weeks ago we hand-picked some of the wedding industry’s top suppliers to assist us with a shoot.  The aim:  to promote Wolfkop Nature Reserve and Camping Villages as a destination wedding venue for the “free-spirited” bride and groom (go like and follow them on Facebook to stay up to date with all things “free” and “spirited”!).

 
Lying 5km from Citrusdal, at the foothills of the CederbergWolfkop is a 450ha reserve featuring privately appointed cottages and camping village. It’s the ideal weekend wedding venue for the free spirited bride and groom, who want to spoil their guests with a unique weekend get-away. Wolfkop can accommodate from 60 to 160 guests with accommodation and venue in a comfortable Bedouin tent “village”.
 

The farm also boasts with four luxury cottages, each individually decorated. Queen-size beds with cotton percale bedding, an indoor and outdoor hot shower, an open-plan, well equipped kitchen (including fresh orange juice in season and fresh coffee beans and grinder for the perfect cuppa!), your own private jacuzzi and fireplace.

Farm activities include mind boggling hiking trails, swimming, fly-fishing and braai areas at the dam.

Carla, from BlueCheri Photography suggested we make the absolute best of the late afternoon and early morning light on the Citrusdal farm and so our adventure turned into a stay-over.  Nobody complained.  After 100’s of (it felt) emails and nail-biting challenges, we finally set a date that suited the whole team for our two day adventure.  Everyone went out of their way  to take part in this shoot.  Our models and hair-and make-up artist, Rina Viljoen, had to get up at 3:30 am to be ready at 06:00 for the first light on the second day!  The dresses from Alana van Heerden were absolutely exquisite and suited our “bride”, model Kim, as if they were made for her (without a fitting!). Thanks Marcel, for making Wolfkop and the models even more breath-taking.
 
Our team left the farm refreshed, having experienced the truly beautiful African sunset over the mountain and sunrise in the orange groves.  The crisp fresh air and natural beauty of the valley will have us going back for more very soon…
 
It was a pleasure working alongside some of the top wedding industry professionals, without egos, with only one aim:  to create beauty stripped of pretence, just like Wolfkop.
 
Good things come to those who wait patiently… see for yourself.
