The Couple: Nqobile & Bheki – from Johannesburg
Wedding Location: Molenvleit, Stellenbosch
Guest List: 150 pax from Johannesburg
Design Concept: This celebration was adorned in glittering shades of champagne, gold and blush, dripping with lush florals and peppered with distinctive details that made it an occasion to remember.
The focal point during the ceremony was an impressive 3.5m gazebo, topped with a solid floral band of creamy roses and dripping orchids, with soft white fringing. The couple’s signature wedding monogram adorned the contemporary white aisle, while transparent plinths on either side of the entrance bore a modern geometric pattern. Guests then enjoyed cocktail hour in a luxury outdoor setting with three central cabanas connected by lush draping housed stylish lounge pockets that reflected the wedding’s modern, elegant aesthetic.
The breathtakingly glamorous candlelit dining room reception was replete with flowers, crystal chandeliers, and glittering tables. A set of arches – reflecting the signature pattern used throughout the design – formed a regal backdrop to the sweetheart table, while a mix of both round and rectangular tables for the guests added visual interest. Hanging ribbons and crystals dripped from the ceiling above the dance floor, along with a central chandelier brimming with blooms.
Our Expert Advice: A clear concept is everything but that doesn’t mean you can’t draw outside the lines. By working with different elements such as using both round and rectangular tables whilst keeping within your colour scheme and floral arrangements, your celebration will ultimately be unique and one of a kind.
