Take Our Word:
Sometimes bigger is better and über-glamorous is the way to go! Opulent florals, customised lounges, handcrafted designer details and A-List entertainment are the perfect ingredients for a “talk-of-the-town” celebration.
From the bespoke details and exclusive customization, to the stunning A-list reception at a newly and stylishly renovated winelands estate, Rosette & Lunga’s glamorous wedding had all the makings of another dazzling, flagship Wedding Concepts celebration!
Rosette and Lunga are a couple that exude natural elegance and magnetism. A woman with many titles such assupermodel, philanthropist and mother, Rosette was now going to become the wife of affluent businessman, Lunga Ncwana.
From the first meeting it was clear that the couple wanted a sophisticated and luxurious celebration but still keeping it relaxed, fun and truly enjoyable. The focus for our design team turned to creating unique concepts that would ensure various details across the day were not only personalised but also customised down to the lastembroided napkin – which all 250 guests received at their place setting! Rosette’s love of pastel colours and hues of gold were reflected throughout the day and across all the key elements that go into creating bespoke wedding décor. A specially designed “logo” incorporating the couple’s initials was applied on the dancefloor as well as on all the handcrafted details such as exclusive gifts, luxurious wedding stationery and even on the custom-made floral photo wall which was a highlight for guests during Pre-Dinner Drinks!
The inspired creativity did not end there! The vast lawns, which were surrounded by panoramic views of the Stellenbosch mountain range, were transformed into a stylish open-lounge area with furniture that too had been custom-made. There were also unique lighting features at the reception as well as an unbelievable “double-sided” entertainment stage layout that would play host to some of South Africa’s top entertainment acts! The groom had always emphasized the importance of top entertainment throughout the day and Wedding Concepts subsequently engaged a number of A-list South African entertainers such as Hiphop Pantsula, 5-piece jazz ensemble Breakfast Included and the talented singing duo, Mafikizolo who had all 250 guests, including high-ranking government officials and other VIP guests, on their feet dancing!
The dinner tables were adorned with amazing floral “talk-of-the-town” centerpieces that added an incredible kaleidoscope of romantic colour to the reception. To top off this extravaganza, a 6-tier wedding cake with intricate floral and icing details on each tier once again brought through Rosette’s favourite colours. Stunning Gold applique adorned every second tier and it was a true design feature at the reception! Not to be outdone and for a refined close to the evening for the gents, our team created an exclusive “Grooms Cigar & Whisky Lounge” which was a specially appointed with stylish lounge furniture and offered some of Scotland’s finest scotch whiskies and single malts, as well as exclusive Cuban cigars for the groom to enjoy with his guests.
Rosette and Lunga’s top priority was to make each guest feel personally welcomed and with the incredible amount of tailored detail throughout the day, there is no doubt that this wedding will be remembered by all those who were lucky enough to have shared in this momentous occasion.
