Cape Town Wedding Planner Real Wedding: True Opulence at Molenvliet
Today we are reflecting on a truly beautiful wedding we planned and coordinated in the Cape Winelands two summers ago, that was both bold and trendy at the time, but has also stood the test of time and still holds strong and current today.
The bride and groom live in Dubai, but wanted to plan their wedding in sunny South Africa, so needed an experienced Cape Town wedding planner to plan and coordinate their whole wedding from across the globe, and chose Nicolette Weddings for the wedding planning honour.
We chose Molenvliet to host this beautiful Cape Town wedding, as it provided several ideal locations to hold the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception, as well as offering luxury accommodation to the bridal couple, and their guests. This wedding venue is also conveniently located in the heart of the Cape winelands in order for international wedding guests to get the most out of their visit to Cape Town, and experience all the beauty that this wine region has to offer.
We also chose to plan this Cape Town wedding with the best possible Cape Town wedding suppliers, and therefore enlisted Something Different to provide the specialist wedding lighting, including the hanging naked bulbs over the tables, and the dance floor chandeliers which we’ll see later on in this post.
Something Different also provided us with all the other hand picked items which brought this wedding vision to life, like the natural wooden tables and chairs, cutlery, glassware, and these fabulous suede pink chairs for the sweetheart table.
Of course we also needed incredible flowers to make this an unforgettable wedding, so we worked with floral expert, Fluer le Cordeur, who adorned the wedding reception venue with hanging florals in blush, fuchsia, and rose, over all the tables, as well on the tables.
We always like to plan weddings with a “golden thread” through the whole wedding. This doesn’t mean everything has to match perfectly, it just means that it’s nice to have some continuity throughout the various parts of the wedding. For example, we made sure that the invitations, beautifully designed by the talented team Secret Diary, were a subtle hint of what guests from around the world could expect to see on the wedding day in Cape Town for this luxury destination wedding.
Cocktails and canapes were served to the wedding party, while top Cape Town wedding photographer, Shanna Jones, led the newlyweds out for some romantic golden hour sunset shots, in order to capture the special memories that were being made at their Cape Town destination wedding.
