Willie and Jo got married at Gabrielskloof Wine Estate, an estate tucked away in the Overberg valley and a mere 75 minutes drive from Cape Town on the N2. The Houwhoek pass on the N2 towards Caledon means passing and stopping at the Houwhoek farmstall to indulge in their home-made treats along the way!
Darren and Megan were married at the beautiful little Catholic church of Saints Simon and Jude. Built in 1885, this is one of the oldest churches in the country and has always had strong ties to the navy. On the 3rd of March 2012, 127 years later, people congregated here to witness the marriage of Megan and Darren.
Hilton and Deidre celebrated their marriage in Misty Cliffs, which is a small seaside conservation village, neighbouring Scarborough and Cape point nature reserve.
I love their unconventional approach; a small atlantic seaboard home as your venue, a hand full of guests and a fabulous roast!
Simple. Natural. Beautiful.
Sharna and Leo had their wedding celebration on a hot summer's day at Vredenheim Wine Estate. They had a Catholic ceremony in Cape Town, before heading out to the venue. A beautiful wedding with a lovely couple, gregarious guests, heartfelt speeches, a sparkling chandelier and a massive green garden with an incredible array of garden flowers and of course, that majestic mountain in the distance.
Philadelphia is the most beautiful and historic little doll house town in the Western Cape. The town has managed to sustain its " village in the middle of nowhere" quality, mainly because appearantly most of the land still belongs to the church. This charming little village is surrounded by farm land and is the equivalent of five unpavel streets and about 6 houses in total. It's amazing that it has escaped Capetonians attentions for so long.
Kirstenbosh is the most beautiful and tranquil space to find yourself in! It induces a meditative like state and trascends the spirit.
Deidre and Carlo held their reception at the Silver Tree Restaurant and decided on a fynbos floral theme, which was a perfect choice for this setting. Check list: Protea Cynaroides , 1 Table Mountain slope, a cool summer's breeze to set the scene and you have a simple, beautiful and earthy wedding celebration!
We are so lucky to have the National Botanical Gardens on our doorstep.
Nick and Christine have been living in Australia for several years and came home to the southern tip of Africa to celebrate their evergreen wedding with loved ones at Kirstenbosch Gardens. Renowned for it's beauty and diversity of Cape flora, the Botanical Gardens is a magical place, set against the eastern slopes of Table Mountain.
