Wedding at Kleine Zalze
From New York, to London, Lebanon and South Africa. Family and friends travelled from across the globe to come celebrate Carol and Walid’s beautiful wedding at Kleine Zalze Wine Estate in Stellenbosch.
50 Guests from Johannesburg, Durban, Cape Town, Beirut, Dubai, New York, LA, UK, Ireland and Malawi attended the wedding that was planned from New York where our couple lives. They got engaged in March and decided on the Cape Winelands as they knew that Cape Town and surrounds would be a fantastic place to visit for their guests.
Planning a wedding remotely was a daunting task initially, but everything fell into place in the months leading up to the wedding and Kleine Zalze couldn’t have been a more picture perfect location. Having the ceremony, reception and accommodation all in one place was really important with most guests coming from so far away.
The reception was also held at Kleine Zalze – the perfect size wedding for the venue! The night was concluded with heartfelt speeches and an interesting choreographed first dance!

Wedding at Kleine Zalze Wine Farm, Stellenbosch
An International Wedding in SA
After torrential rain in the early morning of the big day, it turned out to be a beautiful sunny afternoon. The perfect weather for a summer wedding! Gosh if they got married this week, our couple and guests would have fried. Cape Town has had a heat wave for the last 2 weeks, with temperatures hugging the 40’s!!
Carol looked gorgeous – Here’s her take on the dress bought in NYC
My dress was the Nicole Miller “Poppy” gown, purchased from Lovely Bride, a gorgeous bridal shop in Tribeca, NYC. After trying on multiple dresses in different styles, this was the one I had always pictured myself in.
Walid wore a grey Joseph Abboud suit and his groomsmen wore charcoal suits with purple ties to match the bridesmaid’s dresses. A gift to the groomsmen was the “map of the world” cufflinks to represent the different continents their friends and families had all travelled from.
Our bride and groom both got ready on the estate and had to travel just a very short distance to the ceremony that was held under the huge oaks in the Garden that overlooks the world-class golf course at Kleine Zalze. After the vows were done, guests enjoyed canape’s on the lawn and we took the bridal party away for photos on the Estate. Our favourites are the shots of Carol and Walid in the lush Vineyards.
