Wedding at Val de Vie

Val de Vie - Paarl

Over the last 5 years, Val de Vie has firmly cemented itself as one of the premier wedding venues in the Cape Town area.  It has become the choice venue of couples with class and taste and this is the very reason that Siya and Sinawe decided to tie the knot here.

Val de Vie is situated just outside Paarl in-between the Boland mountains and vineyards.  It boasts with world class polo facilities and some of the best wines in the valley is made here.  The Polo pavilion with chequered floor, high ceilings and wooden features reminds of upperclass mansions and royalty.  This venue was a perfect fit for our couple!

Both Siya and Sinawe got ready on the estate at the Polo Village.  The villas, less than 300m from the ceremony location, means less stress and far less logistics in getting everyone there on time.  Siya arrived in a blood red Ferrari 488 Spyder from Mr M Prestige and Sinawe was gracefully delivered in a Rolls Royce Phantom Drophead, also from Mr M Prestige.

Is was the absolute perfect, windless day for the outdoor ceremony and Sinawe looked absolutely stunning in her Vonve Bridal Couture Dress.  After the ceremony, as is tradition at Val de Vie, the couple threw in the first ball, to start the polo match.  With their guests enjoying canapés and sipping champagne while watching the game from the pavilion, we took the gap to take the couple for their photo shoot. All photos were done on the estate.

The reception was held in the Ballroom at Val de Vie and after all the formalities, guests moved over to the restaurant, that was converted into an afterparty venue.

Apart from the photos, ZaraZoo also did the Video. A big thank you to my team for rocking up on the day and making this one of the best of the season!
