Sarah and I initially met over skype for the first time when she decided she needed a wedding planner based in Cape Town for her wedding. Sarah and Stephan live in Johannesburg.
I was super happy when they hired me. Sarah and I got on right away, we spoke often and emailed back and forth with ideas and comments. She is a bride who knows what she wants, so when they mentioned that Tokara Wine Estate was one of their all time favourite places, I got to work and we booked their wedding venue.
When working with couples that don’t live in the area, Pinterest is a great help for inspiration. Sarah invited me to her board and it helped me make sure that her ideas came to life. Everything looked fabulous on the day!
It was a boiling hot day, so once the ceremony was over the oysters from Oyster King were served along with some bubbly and everyone cooled down and had a wonderful time. The couple and their friends danced the night away and Claire Nicola captured some seriously amazing moments!
This wedding was small, intimate, emotional and filled with love – which is exactly what a wedding should be filled with if you ask me.
To Sarah and Stephan, thank you for bringing me in on such a special day. I loved getting to know you both and I can see the love you have for eachother will last a lifetime! I wish you love, light and happiness in your marriage.
