Stacey & Pieter’s wedding at MolenVliet, Stellenbosch. Another Saturday, another Molenvliet wedding… We work this venue so often, I think the ZaraZoo team might as well move into the River Manor and live there on the farm during the season…
You might think that after 20 weddings at Molenvliet you’ll find it difficult to be creative here – quite the opposite! Molenvliet really has so much to work with and is such a convenient venue with preparations, ceremony and reception all happening in one place. Furthermore, with Stacey & Pieter’s wedding, the couple brought in so many decor and fun elements and this allowed Natelee & Annerien to again deliver some totally fresh photos.

A Fairytale Wedding at MolenVliet Estate
It was a day-wedding with the ceremony starting late morning, followed by a street festival between the vineyards and an afternoon reception. The change in time of the day is in itself a massive change for us as photographers. In this instance a great one looking at the stunning photos we got.
Stacey wanted to incorporate as many ideas and elements into this wedding as possible. Ranging from 1000 pastel coloured helium-filled balloons, dogs as ring bearers, a harpist, a guitarist, the band Manouche as entertainment, the hunks of Oyster King serving fresh oysters and much more.
The street festival was like no other I’ve seen at Molenvliet before. Cheese platters, fruit lollies on dry ice, Sushi, an array of canapes. These were just a few of the eats and treats on offer during the pre-drinks that were done in the middle of the vineyards!
For the photos with the bridal party and the couple, we had a classic Rolls Royce on-site. Photos were taken just before sunset, a really beautiful time of the day at the venue.
