One of my all-time favourite luxury white wedding, that I was the coordinator for, was a couple from Turkey. They had decided to say their “I do’s” in Cape Town, South Africa.
Jessica and Ali’s special day had so many beautiful details within their luxury destination wedding. Some intimate details were, the custom diamanté “I do” stickers on the shoes, personalised wedding logos on the stationery and imported Turkish candy to name a few. The wedding was luxurious and top class without losing elements of who they were as a couple.
This took place on the beautiful lawn area at Bona Dea, overlooking the magnificent Hemel-en-Aarde Valley. The couple shared their vows under a classic white arch, with entwined draping and proudly South African floral arrangements. The florist lined the aisle with white cascading orchids and rose arrangements within tall glass vases resting upon white plinths. The bride gracefully walked down the aisle with her grandmother’s heirloom jewellery, a classic 55 year old tiara.
The pre-drinks and cocktail hour
Straight after the ceremony guests took part in a delicate and breathtaking butterfly release. Releasing butterflies at a wedding symbolises love, beauty and hope. The guests then followed the bridal couple to the cocktail area for their next exciting activity. The groom performed a sabrage for his new wife and guests, the sabrage symbolises triumph and to encourage the guests to have a good time. After all the excitement from the activities, the guests enjoyed the drinks and some delicious canapés served by Two Chefs.
The luxurious wedding reception
The wedding reception was another WOW factor. We decorated the ceiling with branches, white flowers and fairy lights. Creating an eye-catching fairytale look, each table had been adorned with crystal candelabras and flower displays, which consisted of various orchids, roses, and crystal garlands. As a wedding favour, the guests could enjoy authentic Turkish treats. The food was a highlight of the evening and was executed perfectly by the chefs. With the last surprise of the evening, Ali swooned his beautiful bride and their loving friends and family by playing a romantic movement on the Baby Grand Piano.
The day was an absolutely spectacular event, that the guests are mostly likely to never forget. Everything from the custom designed wedding dress and shoes, the venue and how it was decorated by very professional suppliers, that used creative and unique ways to truly represent the love the couple have for each other.
