Majorie & Helgardt - AHOY Guesthouse - Paternoster

What a beautiful garden wedding in the most perfect weather conditions we had with the wedding of Marjorie and Helgardt in the  tranquil gardens of the AHOY guesthouse.  The theme for this wedding was lime green with patches of black and this add to the mysterious treasure chest that add a fun element to the decor.  The ceremony was held on the one side of the guesthouse and the reception on the other side and the cocktails around the swimming pool.    The bride was dressed in a beautiful ivory wedding gown and the bouquet of pure white gerbera's with a black centre just let her glow.  The centrepiece was done in a beautiful black rose bowl and the flowers was gerbera's  and Lillie's.  

Our best wishes to Marjorie & Helgardt on a beautiful future together full of happiness and love.

Dewald & Angelique - THALI THALI GAME LODGE - Langebaan

One of the biggest hidden gems here on the West Coast are the Game Farm,  Thali Thali where Angelique and Dewald choose to have there wedding.  They want it natural, elegant but simple with elements of nature.  The table setting was simple but striking.  Small square containers with glass pebbles and a little bouquets of vandella roses, feeling green sprays and dodder add a splash of colour to the setting.  The centrepiece was home grown succulents in a dodder nest planted in a silver roman urn.  The gift to the guests were homemade fig and apricot jam with dodder detail repeating the theme.  The blackboard table numbers just add uniqueness to the tables.
The marquee tent was beautifully draped with hessian to tie in with the nature outdoors  and we just add hundreds of little fairy lights to created an ambiance to die for.  The ceremony was held in open air for guest to experience the natural beauty of this estate. On the edges of the pole veranda around the tent we hung tin luminars and everywhere in the trees little glass lanterns.

Our best wishes to Dewald and Angelique on a prosperous future together full of love.
