The perfect season starter… a Wedding Concepts Wedding at Molenvliet!
We’re so excited to share Nqobile and Bheki’s luxury wedding with you. It was a perfect, windless, blue-skied spring day! To top it, we had the most handsome and easy going couple to work with! A big thanks to Nqobile and Bheki for trusting us to capture your special day!
As many of you might know, Molenvliet had a few upgrades during the low season. One of these was a fantastic new ceremony / pre-drinks area right in the middle of the vineyards. And to add to the grandeur of this fantastic estate, the owners installed two massive fountains on either end of the this area. The result – a stunning, symmetrical and almost Versailles-like vista, with the towering Franschhoek mountains in the background. Honestly, this venue is just getting better and better!
Both bride and groom and their entourage got ready at Molenvliet. With a bride tribe of 8 and an equal number on the groom’s side, this wedding party could have filled up a wedding on their own! Bheki and the boys were dressed in white tuxedo jackets with black pants. The girls looked ever so stylish in their off-white bridesmaid dresses and Nqobile lived up to her eloquent self, looking like a royal princess in her Pronovias Dress.
When I heard that this would be a Wedding Concepts Wedding, I knew we were going to be in for a mind-blowing setup with the decor and design. Again Kate and her creative team created a unique experience that included both classic and modern elements, with a made-from-scratch wedding logo specially designed for the couple. Well done girls! You’re the best of the best!
After the beautiful ceremony, guests were lead down the hill by the couple and their two sons. Guests were entertained by Buddy Holly and his jazz band while feasting on sumptuous braai bits and an array of other finger foods prepared by Two Chefs while we took the couple away for their formal photos. What a joy it is to work with a couple that enjoys taking photos – we had a blast!
The reception venue was as impressive as the ceremony and pre-drinks area. It even included special Champagne and Whiskey bar and a unique floral experience as you’d expect from a Wedding Concepts wedding. The evening included a live show by celebrity comedian Felix Hlophe. All in all, the production was a huge success and we’re extremely happy with the end result and the stunning photos we were able to deliver.
