Mazeth & Faan’s Kleinevalleij wedding was the second of two we did back to back at this popular wedding venue in Wellington.
The wedding was coordinated by Hannes of [KRAAK] (wedding coordination) – with the brides inspiration they pulled off something totally different! The theme was royal blue and frames and this was incorporated in just about everything. As I walked in I saw “small sappling trees suspended in the air” – A very interesting decor element that I’ve not seen anywhere before. Don’t worry all you green fundies out there – these babies are alien tree species in SA (I hope). Other decor elements included artist dummies and the daring diagonal blue stripes in the reception venue.
Mazeth did her preps at Grand deDale (my all time favourite preps venue). This place has such nice light to work with, not to mention the awesome furniture and decor in the main house. The wrap-around veranda of the manor house creates this instant holiday feeling – You can just imagine yourself lounging on that stoep on a warm summers evening. For a Kleinevalleij wedding, this is the ideal preparations venue and wedding night accommodation.
The grooms entourage was styled by Moi Styling. Mazeth looked stunning in her dress by Elizabeth Stockenstrom and make-up by the ever calming Alicia Buckle. I swear you can be in the middle of nuclear holocaust, but with Alicia there to calm you, you’ll feel like it is the best day of your life – apart from her stunning make-up I would recommend all brides to have an Alicia close just to keep the nerves down! lol
The food at this Kleinvalleij wedding was another stand-out – done Malita Joubert catering. I just love the french bread table idea for pre-drinks and starters – this is my kind of food – it creates a more informal feel and allows people tot take bigger or smaller portions without feeling guilty.
