Alana & Jan’s wedding at Old Mac Daddy was only our second at this uber cool wedding venue in Elgin. Both weddings were shot by our all girls team – Natelee, Annerien and Jo-Lizna. Natelee is a very good friend of Alana and was present when our couple got engaged in Thailand last year (at Ryno & Marita’s wedding Natelee covered)
Alana is one of the leading wedding dress designers in Cape Town – you can imagine the anticipation to see that dress the moment she walked down the aisle! Well, see for yourself below – nothing short of a breathtaking creation by a very talented designer. What Alana does well is to create a dress that fits your personality like a glove.
Our wedding was truly the best day of our lives!!! With both of us being visually inclined, we have spent hours together planning, imagining and dreaming about our big day.
Alana’s Perfect Old Mac Daddy Wedding Day
We asked bride Alana to write a bit about the wedding in her own words:
“Our wedding was truly the best day of our lives!!! With both of us being visually inclined, we have spent hours together planning, imagining and dreaming about our big day. We knew that we wanted something intimate (only 80 guests) and that it needed to reflect our relaxed, eclectic and slightly quirky style. Old Mac Daddy Luxury Trailer Park had been our very first (and to be honest, only) choice for a venue – we loved everything about it!
For décor, we went for a vibrant gold & pink theme (gold is my fave colour!!) – a beautiful contrast to the natural, organic backdrop of the venue and surroundings. We loved working together in planning this special day – Jan designed and printed all the stationary: the invites, programs, menus, popcorn boxes, confetti cones, all the posters and signage and the men’s badges. I designed and made 8 of the dresses worn that day. My own dress was a simple blush pink & cream lace dress with gold beading on the bodice. I also made a short, fun party dress for later in the evening.”
