Cape Town Venue
This Cape Town Venue photography project took us into the leafy suburb of Plattekloof near Cape Town. We were commissioned by the lovely Liza van Schalkwyk to photograph her gorgeous VinBoHo establishment. Not only is VinBoHo a wonderful function and conference venue, it also offers accommodation facilities.
Why the name VinBoHo? Says founder and owner Liza: “Ever since I can remember, I was always in touch with nature and Mother earth. I had a flair for all things unique, creative and interesting. I felt that earth was a gift from God and therefore all of my projects were to include the elements of nature in one way or the other. While planning my best friend’s daughter’s wedding the inspiration for vintage and bohemian themes transpired in combining the definitions of Vintage and Bohemian and so…VinBoHo was born!”
Liza’s very special Cape Town Venue is surrounded by an eclectic mortar and iron wall. You are immediately drawn as to what lies beyond. For us it truly was like stepping into another world. We were amazed to see what Liza had done with an ordinary home. She has literally transformed it into and establishment that reflects her own personal style. With a sensory overload buzz it was not hard to start clicking away with so many gorgeous subjects in every nook and cranny!
On entering you find yourself in the reception lounge. This area can be used for intimate functions and serves as a welcoming point for guests. The lounge area definitely has a green, natural vintage feel about it. Scattered around are beautiful succulents and plants offset by found natural objects. A few vintage pieces add a feeling of nostalgia.
