Cape Town Wedding: East Meets West at Waterkloof
As Cape Town wedding planners we do get to witness some really beautiful celebrations of heritage and culture. This was certainly the case with the wedding of Lilly and Marco who came out from Shanghai to celebrate their wedding in Cape Town.
The couple chose Waterkloof as their venue – a glass venue on a hilltop with awe-inspiring views across False Bay. Waterkloof has a very modern, minimalist interior with impressive double volume spaces. The chef is amazing and Waterkloof venue comes highly rated by our team of Cape Town wedding planners!
In Chinese culture the wedding colour is red and so we worked to incorporate red into the décor in a way that tied in with the modern, contemporary feeling of the venue.
The flowers and décor were done by Puccini Creations, who worked with soft pink flowers, contrasted against red accents in the napkins, wedding favours and wedding guest book custom made by Secret Diary Designs.
The couple chose to gift their weddings guests will organic artisan chocolate from Honest Chocolate.
Lilly looked feminine and graceful in a soft princess tulle gown with an embroidered bodice and veil.
Her hair and makeup by Sam Scarborough was simple and elegant.
Lilly and Marco were married outdoors under a beautiful floral arch and against an exquisite backdrop of Cape Town mountain ranges.
Shepherd’s arches lined the aisle and pretty posies of flowers and red ribbon hung from them. Guests threw red rose petals as confetti to bless the beautiful couple.
As per tradition, Lilly changed into traditional Chinese attire during the wedding and we adored her striking red dress and accessories. Look at this amazing headpiece!
Wades Cakes made a stunning, textured three tier wedding cake in pure white – a wedding planner’s dream!
