Jonathan & Aline’s wedding at Gabrielskloof was our first at this increasingly popular wedding venue close to Hermanus. It was a very small wedding with only closest family and friends attending.
The couple work on Luxury yachts around the world – seems to be the coolest thing to do when you are twenty-something. Here’s what Aline wrote about how they met:
“We both joined the yachting industry at different times and for different reasons. Our vessels travelled completely different itineraries however one faithful evening our paths crossed in the Bahamas. It was love at first sight, we were crazy about each other. And since that day on we have travelled the oceans together and when we got engaged in Paris, there was no doubt in our mind that beautiful Western Cape in South Africa is the only place where we would want to get married.”

After getting ready in Hermanus in two separate locations, the ceremony and reception was done at Gabrielskloof. The Estate boasts with miles upon miles of rolling vineyards set on the hills surrounding the venue. They produce their own wine and olive oil, pressed from the acres of Olive tree orchards also on the Estate. The scenery is fantastic and a photographers dream – Have a look at the photos below – quite different from the normal Stellenbosch / Franschhoek wedding vibe. Love it!
