Dreaming of Vikings and Vineyards

Posted in: Weddings on Wednesday, April 23rd, 2014

Has it been so long since my last post? Dare I say I have been too busy … well it is true, I have had a really great wedding season and now with winter fast approaching I can finally sit back and take stock. I’ve met some really great people from all over who have journeyed to our shores to join their lives … what a special thing for them and every one with me has been a journey with them , and I take great pride in the part that I play in their day, and ensuring they have special memories to share for the rest of their lives with friends and family.

Journeying to Cape Town from Norway were Frank and Åsne, with their beautiful daughters and wonderful friends. We spent a great day together in the sun at Palmiet Valley Estate in Paarl, and they were over the moon when they got home and received their A3 Coffee Table book in the mail…..

The Wedding of Mario and Silvia

Posted in: Weddings on Thursday, January 16th, 2014

It’s been a busy time …. no excuse not to be chatting here, but many changes, many good things and have been working hard while closing off one year and welcoming in another.

What better way to close off one year than to share in the love and celebration of a beautiful beach wedding on an idyllic summer’s day in de Kelders. Hosted by Grootbos Private Nature Reserve, Mario and Silvia from Switzerland chose a perfect day for their wedding, and Silvia was wearing a stunning red dress – beautifully made and guaranteed to stand out on that white beach sand!

We had a really great day with this wonderful, fun couple, and it was a very special time.

Cape Town Weddings

Posted in: Weddings on Saturday, November 2nd, 2013

The Wedding of Tom and Jayne

Our summer seems to have been a little late in arriving, and we have had plenty of late-winter rainstorms, followed by gale force winds, and then suddenly summer was here ….. or not, as yet another cold front hit Cape Town, and hail storms affected the interior of South Africa.

 

You have to be rather brave to try and plan a perfect wedding day in the Cape in October …. do you get the Cape of Good Hope or do you get the Cape of Storms? Tom and Jayne ventured from the British Isles to tie the knot in Cape Town and I’ll admit I was slightly nervous as another storm lashed at Cape Town. I put on a brave face, put in  my order for warm weather with some clouds …. need those clouds for beautiful soft light … and of  course a spectacular sunset.
The wedding was to take place at the charismatic 2inn1 Kensington, one of my favourite Cape Town guest houses, with minister Walter Schwaer at 3pm, and the weather had clouded over and luckily gave us some relief from the 30 degree plus heat that was lurking around … but it looked too thick to guarantee any sort of sunset in the evening.

We had a lovely small intimate ceremony with Lion’s Head behind us and agreed that we would take a chance on the sides of Table Mountain or Signal Hill for some sunset images over the ocean ……

Later in the evening, the light was lovely, but the wind was rising … still, can’t have everything and we got some great photos along the road with the beautiful chincherees in the foreground and the twelve apostles and Lion’s Head in the background.

We headed over the back of Signal Hill and were treated to, not only windless conditions, but a most beautiful sunset, and on the bay ocean side a full rainbow above us, just to top it all off!!!

What a wonderful day!! Couldn’t have ordered it any better!
