Briefly tell us about you and the groom as a couple.
Dan and I met back in December 2017 in a very random and most unexpected way. We have not been apart since then.
Fast forward to 3 years later, one evening I walked into our apartment, filled with candles and roses, with Dan welcoming me on one knee. The evening we got engaged was nothing short of magical and I will cherish it forever.
We are what you would consider quite an unorthodox couple as Dan is originally from Uganda and I am a born and bred Capetonian.
There are many Paarl wine estates with wedding venues to choose from. How and why did you decide on Rhebokskloof?
Rhebokskloof met all our expectations for the vision we had of our wedding. We were impressed by the friendly hospitality and service we received from the staff. It was that excellent service of making us feel so welcome and the beautiful scenery that cemented our decision to celebrate our big day here.
Briefly discuss the vision for YOUR wedding. Was there a particular theme?
We knew we wanted deep jewel colours to match the plush greenery of the venue, therefore lots of pink, purple, red and green tones were in the brief.
We also knew that we wanted to incorporate elements of both cultures to ensure we are both presented as individuals at our wedding.
Your wedding was bright and colourful, and it shows in the flower choices! Discuss your choice of flowers/bouquet. Did it represent anything to or of you? Also, who did your flowers and/or décor.
We worked with Limitless Events, a wedding décor company, who guided me on choosing the right flowers to achieve the look and feel we wanted. We wanted bright colours as they presented myself and Dan’s personalities. Looking around on my wedding day, I believe the bright and ornate bouquets helped created a happy and joyous mood all round.
