It is always a risky move to have your reception outside, but I suppose the probability of rain is very slim in the summer months here in Cape Town. Robyn & Tyrelle’s Outdoor Wedding at Nooitgedacht obviously had the blessings from the weather gods, as we had a perfect rain-free and wind still, warm summers evening under the stars!
Both bride and groom got ready at Nooitgedacht, the girls in the Bridal suite in the Manor house and the boys in the renovated old slave quarters. Robyn was dressed in a Grace Kelly inspired wedding gown. The dress was accompanied by an enchanting cathedral-length, mantilla veil, which was perfectly paired with a simple pair of her diamond earrings.
Tyrelle was dressed in a classic black single button tuxedo with peak lapel covered in rich satin which he designed and got made by his trusted tailor. Tyrelle’s attire was finished off perfectly with a pair of patent leather Dolce & Gabbana lace-up, a velvet bow- tie and a white silk pocket square.

The Wedding Ceremony & Reception
The Ceremony was conducted at All Saints Anglican Church in Durbanville. From there the 160 guests travelled back to Nooitgedacht for Canapés and pre-drinks. During this time the ZaraZoo team headed out with the newlyweds to take some couple photos on the estate. With the couple shoot, we were inspired to find a few different spots to the normal Nooitgedacht couple photos. We are very happy with how this set came out. Have a look and let us know what you think.
The long tables down the middle of the oak tree-lined road that leads up to the manor house. The wedding decorations were done by Memorable Occasions. The Wedding was coordinated by Brukman Consulting – we think they did a fantastic job with pulling this intricate wedding together. The wedding was conceptualised and planned by our lovely bride, Robyn – Tyrelle you better hold on to this one! It is not every day that you get a person that can plan a wedding while in the midst of her studies!
