Zithe & Alex’s wedding at La Residence was the 2nd we did at this amazing Franschhoek venue in less than a month. The couple met in the Netherlands in 2009 where they both studied towards a Masters in Law degree at Leiden University. Looks like fate, or should I rather say “Law” brought these two together from opposite sides of the world. Alex from Germany and Zithe from Cape Town, South Africa. They now live in Munich, Germany where they both practice law.
La Residence was indeed the perfect match for Zithe & Alex. The opulence, crystal chandeliers, beautifully manicured estate and rich art collection is a perfect match for two people that love the finer things in life.
Zithe and her entourage prepared in the honeymoon suite at La Residence – WOW – one of the most luxurious bridal rooms I’ve come across in 10 years of doing wedding photography. Alex and the boys got ready at nearby Pearl Valley golf Estate. The ceremony took place at the Dutch Reformed church in Franschhoek and from there it was back to La Residence for the reception.
