Whimsical Fairytale Wedding at Johannesdal1207

Couple

Jacqueline & Ope

Venue

Johannesdal 1207, Stellenbosch

About the day

After many postponements, this long-awaited wedding finally came around. And WHAT a day! Jacqueline knew exactly what she wanted. A romantic, whimsical theme with flowy florals and dreamy moments. Our favourite part of the wedding… not easy to pick! The carefully designed and beautifully printed wedding programme booklet with artwork designed especially for them. See the watercolour painting here. Okasie’s incredible floral installations (which they create with so much talent and ease) which were exactly what they envisioned. Oh and the DRESS.

It is impossible to sum up a destination wedding that took months to plan in detail, 100’s of emails, calls and whatsapp’s, ideas, emotions… We will let these images say what we can’t put into words.

From the couple

“Niki and Madri made our dream wedding come true, in spite of the unprecedented times we faced with numerous date changes. They were always available, managing the budget, managing all the vendors, interpreting our dream and making sure we got everything we dreamt of.

On the day of, they managed everything so well we don’t think we noticed if anything did not go according to plan, but I strongly believe everything went according to plan. If I were to celebrate any other event in Cape Town or South Africa, they will be our go-to planners.

My close friends needed to plan a get-together before the event and they can’t stop talking about how great Madri was in helping them!

You are bound to have a great experience with them!!”

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.”

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!
