I’m officially in love… with South African weddings. Although this blog was started with a focus on the Rocky Mountain region, not only am I enjoying, but I’m love featuring weddings from South Africa. I love the elegant, stunning, and rich feel from the weddings. They are all unique in their own way. I have also heard about how beautiful South Africa is, now I’m ready to jet set from the beautiful Rocky Mountains to the stunning backdrop of South Africa.
I’m very lucky to have a global following and I will continue to feature weddings from the Rocky Mountain region, but I will start to feature more real weddings from my new favorite area South Africa.
This real wedding comes via our AMAZING Dylan List member, Wedding Concepts. With the beautiful backdrop of the Stellenbosch Winelands, Kundai and Patrick had a wedding fit for a queen.
The joining of two African cultures – Congolese and Zimbabwean – all set in the heart of the Cape Winelands, spells the beginning of an incomparable union and a lavish extravaganza. Kundai’s wedding was always meant to be fit for a queen! Classic undertones were kept throughout and no detail was overlooked.
The selection of the best chairs available, top of the range tableware and linen set the grand tone of the evening. A number of oversized crystal chandeliers were suspended from the eves – this not only balanced the proportions of the room, but added the WOW factor. To achieve variety food was served with sleek white sideboards specially constructed for the occasion. The stylish counters – each unit shared between two guest tables – were groaning under the weight of butterflied Spanish prawns; barbecued free-range Namibian sirloin, North African lamb cutlets; lemon and thyme roasted chicken and more!
After dinner, Kundai by then in her party wedding dress, and guests were treated to a fire show set to exceptional music and flanked by the vineyards! As the party got underway to the sounds of Rene the Frenchmen, oversized silver coolers – filled with dry ice and mini magnum ice creams – were circulated to cool the steamy atmosphere of the vibrantly filled dance floor!
