Charne and Werner

Charne and Werner – 17 Sept 2011 – Dunes Keurbooms

Charne and WernerOn 17th September 2011 we made Charne and Werner’s dream wedding come true…

the blushing young bride sure turned heads on her big day! Looking like a magazine cover-bride, she made her groom’s eyes sparkle at the very sight of her! 

Arriving at the picturesque St Peters stone chapel in a classic car, complete with personalized licence plates in honor of their big day, family and friends couldn’t hold back the tears of joy at the sight of her bridal beauty.

Beautiful bridesmaids dressed in fresh spearmint green satin gowns leading the way, and white rose petals from the adorable flower girl’s basket paving the way for Charné who was accompanied by her Father, to finally become Mrs! 

After the romantic ceremony, the newlyweds and their retinue proceeded to take some photos while the guests made their way to the Dunes Resort in Keurbooms beach, where they enjoyed sangria, champagne, fruit skewers and a chocolate fountain  while playing a game of casual crochet on the beach lawns!

Everyone then made their way to the fantasy which was their wedding reception! A fairy tale festival of lights transforming the room into a magical escape from reality! Flowers everywhere filling the air with a festive fragrance, one can’t even begin to explain it! With several personal touches inspired by the couple’s individuality made it all the more memorable!

Delicious delights and tasty treats, champagne flowing, family, friends and the hopes and dreams Charné & Werner share for their new life together as husband and wife!

All the “stuff” movies are made of! We’re so happy for them! We know their marriage will be just as magical as their big day! 

 

 


Garden Route Wedding Expo

Garden Route Wedding Expo

Garden Route Wedding ExpoOn 19th August 2011 we featured at the Garden Route Wedding Expo…

Our very display with clean lines and striking contrasts made heads turn at this years Garden Route Wedding Expo in the Mall in George.

We were voted among the top 5 exhibitors, the winners being Tramonto, a prestigious wedding venue in George and runners up the Garden Route Casino & Spa in Mosselbay. These guys had amazing displays in the main arena, and spared no expense! But we were quite impressed to learn that we made top 5! Seeing as we’re a smaller business compared to the winners!

The guys from Brown’s jewelers really took care of me in the couple of days during the exhibit, bringing me coffee and keeping me company when it was quiet. I even got a free lesson about diamonds! The cut, importance of color(or -less in this case) and all the elements one has to look out for when buying a diamond! So if you’re not sure where to go to get your perfect engagement or wedding ring, be sure to pay them a visit soon!!!

Juanita and Lloyd

Juanita and Lloyd – 14 May ’11 – Beacon Island

Juanita and LloydJuanita and Lloyd were married on 14th May 2011 on Solar Beach, Robberg in Plett! 

She had jaws dropping at the sight of her bridal beauty! I think i might have even spotted a tear forming in Loyd’s eye when he first glanced at her walking down the beach accompanied first by her step-Dad and then her older Brother, sadly Juanitas’s Dad passed away some years ago, and although he was dearly missed at the blessed event, his presence was there with them throughout the day!

a gorgeous day on the beach, sun bleached beach sand and cool blue waters setting the scene, with Dolphins playfully swimming past in the background! Lloyd & Juanita’s long awaited big day was an absolute fairy tale! and what a stunning bride!!!

Followed by an unforgettable reception in a Bedouin tent on the lawns of Beacon Island Hotel (same venue Freddy & I got married!) with sage and lilac accents, roses, orchids, lace, rustic wooden tables, white tiffany chairs, fairy lights, lanterns, bonfires and the whispering waves in the background! Another magical evening with a couple so in love, they can barely tare their eyes off each other long enough to mingle! Although surely they never wanted the night to end, they probably couldn’t wait for their amazing honeymoon in Thailand!!! 


Inna and Lars

Inna and Lars – 4 May 2011 – Solar Beach

Inna and LarsGerman Doctors (both specialists; internal medicine and cardiology), Inna and Lars were married on the 4th May 2011 in our beloved Bahia Formosa (Plett’s original Portuguese name meaning Beautiful Bay) 

A very small, intimate ceremony on the beach,  followed by a small romantic private seafood feast at the exclusive Coral Reef at Beacon Island.

Countless special intimate moments were shared by the couple, their obvious affection, love and adoration for each other is something that cannot be faked, and their natural spontaneity  made the photographer’s job all the more pleasant! Jan Minnie, really captured these moments beautifully!

Lars and Inna were completely taken aback by their romantic beach wedding and we exceeded their expectations entirely! On their return to Germany, they had a traditional large white wedding with all their friends and family, but still, they remember their “wedding for 2” in sunny South Africa! 


Anneke and Retief

Anneke and Retief – 23 April ’11

Anneke and RetiefAnneke and Retief were married on 23rd April 2011 in Natures Valley… a Forest Fairy-Tale indeed!

I’m pretty certain I spotted a few winged sprites gathering in the trees surrounding the enchanted forest service to witness the sacred event, where Anneke Villet became Mrs Anneke Tromp (even though they refer to themselves as ReTroAnVil and everyone’s come to know them by their collective name!) 

However no fairy dust was required to inspire every witness there, as the chemistry shared for each other by the newlyweds was inspiring and intoxicating! A very special ceremony with messages from the groomsmen and bridesmaids made this a truly memorable service!

Probably the most fun I’ve had in ages! Their wine-themed, vintage, rustic wedding decor was only part of the magic of this wonderful evening! The party carried on until the early hours of the morning! Strangers became instant friends and everyone, inspired by ReTroAnVil’s lust for life, their love and affection for each other, their family and friends, their passion for everything they do was infectious! Literally partying the night away, nobody will ever forget the nuptials and party of RetroAnvil on April 23rd ’11! Sure to go down in history!
