Natasha & Gareth’s Greek wedding at Brenaissance…what a party!!!
After getting married in a Greek Orthodox church the week before, the wedding day at Brenaissance was there for the party and for friends and family to really enjoy themselves. Natasha was adamant that she wanted to spend the most time possible with her favourite people, so the traditional couple shoot on the day made way for a post-wedding shoot on Camps Bay the next day.

Wedding at Brenaissance Stellenbosch, Devon Valley
The couple met on a skiing trip in Italy and rumour has it that Gareth asked Natasha to marry him on one of the first nights of après ski jols. At that stage, she did not pay much attention, but a year later on a trip to Rio, the magic happened! Gareth popped the question. Fast-forward a bit and here we are, at their wedding ceremony in Stellenbosch!
The wedding was held at the Brenaissance Wine Estate in Devon Valley. It is just 8 minutes out of the central Stellenbosch area, which means the guests could easily travel to the venue.
The nice thing about this wedding venue is that everything is on-site. Both the bride and groom did their preps in separate cottages and the ceremony took place in the Rose conservatory (the purpose-built wedding chapel). Pre-drinks was done on the lawns overlooking the beautiful Stellenbosch mountains and the reception in the checkered floored main venue hall at Brenaissance.
As usual at Greek weddings there was plenty of traditional dancing, breaking of plates and drinking of expensive whiskey. It’s a miracle that one of us was not injured by pieces of broken plates flying around – this one was one of the roughest we’ve had! The Greeks certainly know how to throw a bridal bash!
