Natalie and Marc’s Stellenbosch Winelands Wedding

Natalie & Marc

Where does one even begin to describe Natalie and Marc’s beyond fabulous Stellenbosch Winelands wedding day?  It’s been a while since we’ve photographed a wedding with SO much joy and laughter.  It was one of those days when you leave with such a happy heart, because not only have you photographed two people who you know are going to be together till grey hairs show, but the entire day was filled with so many moments and the most perfect light.

Cape Town wedding photographers are so spoilt for choice when it comes to photographing couples in beautiful wedding venues.  Natalie and Marc’s winelands wedding took place at Vredenburg Manor on Winery Road outside Stellenbosch.  We arrived quite early in the morning, and the grounds were so fresh and peaceful.  There were ducks waddling about, and squirrels collecting acorns on the lush green lawns.  The beautiful Cape Dutch manor house is set between massive old oak trees and has a complete wrap around stoep.  The ceremony area was set up under a huge oak tree, and the feast table adorned with colour filled the length of the front of the manor house.  The entire lawn had been divided up into little chill areas with beautiful throws, cushions and garden furniture.  Lawn games were laid out to keep guests entertained. What a perfect setting to arrive to!Natalie and Marc wanted to create a casual Bohemian feel for their wedding day.  Natalie’s mom made a lot of the décor items, and so much attention was given to small details – even a couple of guitars for guests to play to add to the chilled vibe!  The décor popped with colour, and especially the glasses on the long wedding table looked amazing as the sunlight caught them.  The giant dream catchers hanging from the trees, also made by Natalie’s mom were amazing!

The wedding ceremony was beautiful with so many special moments, and a few tears.  Afterwards everyone enjoyed bubbly and canapes before sitting down for a long lazy luncheon.  After lunch it was time for lawn games and chilling.  Natalie and Marc had organized a caricaturist which was loads of fun as well as a mobile ice cream stand.

We did the couple shoot at the end of the day.  The light was soft and beautiful and Natalie and Marc were AMAZING to photograph.  They are so spontaneous with the most beautiful hearts and smiles.

Natalie and Marc, what an honour it was for us to photograph your special day.  Your colourful, Bohemian winelands wedding is one we will remember for a very long time!
