Another absolutely jaw dropping wedding from South African wedding designers Wedding Concepts, I am, as usual, a bit lost for words. Here is what they had to say about the big day.
“Combining the sophistication & traditions of their home countries France and South Africa – Jeremy & Lindy asked us to design a Winelands wedding of elegance & class with some modern twists. There was to be no compromise on the top-quality of the 5* boutique location – a hidden gem in the Wellington Winelands – and the culinary delicacies they would have on offer to their well-travelled guests.
Their casually glamorous pre-wedding beach picnic had already set the tone for a designer wedding that was to follow the next day. Sleek grey tones with rich purple touches and shades of ivory created a contemporary colour palette that complimented the elegant winelands setting.
The debonair Jeremy, decked out in top hat, tails and of course a cane, was met at the alter by the ueber-elegant Lindy, to exchange vows in an outdoor ceremony surrounded by picturesque forest and mountain views of the Bainskloof Valley. At pre-drinks a spirited and highly interactive African drumming circle proved to be the highpoint for the international crowd.
The chic wedding reception was arranged under a Bedouin marquee that covered the stylish courtyard and water feature. Table tops were adorned with contemporary floral installations, stylish stationery elements (yes – each with a personalised wax seal) and an exquisite lighting concepts. A renowned swing band kept guests boogying on the silver striped dance floor; designer cocktails matching the wedding colours were a special feature in their own right and finally – a delectable Candy Station presented alongside a 5 tiered African-themed wedding cake ensured every person’s sweet tooth was spoken for.
Thanks so much to photographer Jean-Pierre Uys for sharing these photos. The have captured a pretty remarkable day!
