Happy Monday brides! How about some extravagance to start your week?
I have an ahhhhh-mazing wedding to share with you today. Flowers, flowers, FLOWERS and so much more! This wedding is so sensational, inspirational and .... wow! (Sorry couldn't think of another ...ational).
The team at Wedding Concepts is beyond talented - While creating this wedding (not sure of the budget... if there was one) they were going for a glamorous opulent effect with a 'wow' factor. Well I think we can all agree they succeeded!
Where and when: Stellenbosch Winelands, December
The Look: Glamorous opulence - a translucent marquee with a decadent wow factor and customisation to the "T"
Guest List: 370 South African and International Guests
Photographer: "Zara Zoo Photography"
Take Our Word: Bold and beautiful, lavishly opulent, colourful and vibrant - are the buzz words for this designer wedding with no expense spared.
The Story: Nwabisa and Mikki's wedding was always going to be the talk of the town and our brief at Wedding Concepts was to set a new standard in designer weddings. With 35000 roses forming exquisite table centre pieces, customised tables with organza covered tops, a dramatic custom-made dance floor and stage set for the Jazz Band with renowned singer Lindiwe Suttle, the couple were confident that this celebration had to be one that their 370 guests would remember and talk about for years to come.
It was also clear from the beginning that definite tailor-made and designer elements never seen before in Southern Africa were key for this elaborate celebration. The complex setup leading up to the wedding took place over 7 days and involved over 200 staff and suppliers whose tireless efforts turned the 900 square meter marquee into a master piece. A uniquely designed network of pin-spotting lights were carefully fixed to the ceiling of the marquee to ensure that the dazzling display of over 300 roses on each table were lit up from all angles as the sun set behind the mountains. The specially designed dance floor was painted by hand, with a 5-tier wedding cake dramatically placed in the center. Careful and strategic uplighting of the breathtaking surroundings as well as clustering trendy lampshades over the dance floor turned this exquisite marquee reception and nightclub-lounge into a venue and extravaganza that was fit for royalty.
Outdoor and indoor designer lounges in soft shades of pink, purple and white were especially created for the couple together with free flowing French Champagne and the sheer natural beauty of the Cape Winelands. Four different bands entertained with Classical, African, Jazz & Swing music and with a DJ creating a once in lifetime party for the well heeled guests and everyone agreed - this wedding was nothing short of absolutely spectacular. We agree!
Congratulations to Wedding Concepts for creating this incredibly amazing wedding! Congratulations to the very lucky bride and groom also!
