A sophisticated and elegant affair – Memoire Wedding Venue, Muldersdrift

Kelly and Chad got married at the picturesque Memoire wedding venue on a rainy Friday afternoon. The heavens blessed this couple with rain, and even though it threw the garden ceremony plans out completely, this did not take away from the beauty of this sophisticated wedding. Having planned everything down to every exquisite detail, this promised to be a totally glam wedding

The groom was ever so calm as he got ready with his groomsmen. Kelly surprised him with a precious gift, to begin their happily ever after

There was so much love in the bridal suite as the girls were getting ready wit hair and makeup. Kelly’s beauty team was all sorts of levels, with Saadique on hair and Precious Xaba on make-up. End result – she was a vision!

Kelly wore a gorgeous Milla Nova gown from Vonve bridal couture. As we prepped her to walk down the isle with her father, the most natural thing happened. Dad sobbed uncontrollably and as you would have it, tears just welled up in all our eyes. It was a surreal moment. With dad being a pastor, he quickly changed gears at the altar and stood on the other side to take care of officiating duties. Needless to say, it’s not the same when your own father is the one to says – “you may kiss the Bride”

The rain held up long enough, for Estilo Photography to capture the most heartfelt moments. Guests were treated to a gin bar, delicious canape and jazz sounds from Langa and the band.

To achieve the romantic fairy tale look the reception tables were lined with candles from end to end and accentuated with a luxurious tightly structured rose ball arrangement. Every detail was carefully thought out, from the rose dripping chandeliers to the gold stencil cut out of each guests name. The candle holders and glass votives on the mirror tabletops gave a reflection that flickered the candlelight long after the guests gasped at the splendor of this reception

I have organised many dance classes for past couples before but never have a couple chosen to do the rumba before, and what a performance. Kelly and Chad looked like they straight off a movie set. A perfect end to a well planned and memorable day
