Kristy & Adam's South African Vineyard wedding was beyond breathtaking. The theme of the day was 'rustic elegance and my goodness did they deliver!
Kristy had always wanted to have a vineyard wedding, however, didn't want the occasion to become too formal. She found the perfect venue to fit the bill at Vrede en Lust with its jaw-dropping mountainous backdrop and rows of ripening trees. The wedding party readied themselves inside the ornate Manor House built in 1688, while the reception was held inside a terrace with a marquee tent roof. The glass-windowed reception venue provided a glorious view of the surrounding scenery.
Kristy's impeccable taste was evident in the beautifully styled elements throughout the wedding dotted with old-world charm. The rustic vibe came through via long wooden tables, wine barrels and exposed bulbs. This was contrasted with a classic colour palette of navy, blush pink and rose gold which was featured throughout everything from the invitations to the cutlery. A key highlight however, were the abundant florals consisting of reds, pinks and a spray of greenery designed by N Concepts and Designs.
Our gorgeous bride Kristy wore Tibet by Pronovias - a beautiful mermaid gown with an illusion boat neckline and decadent guipure lace motifs. Her gown was absolutely perfect for the setting, giving the entire occasion an almost regal feel.
When asked about her gown, Kristy said that "It had everything I didn’t even know I wanted in a dress. I loved the champagne underlayer that really made the lace motifs stand out, the illusion neckline, and the shape that the dress gave me!"
After their teary 'I do's", the happy couple headed to the reception to celebrate with all fo ther family and friends. As for the honeymoon, the pair are expected to jet off on a delayed getaway to Hawaii at the end of the year!
We wish this beautiful couple all the best for their future together!
