Intimate Al Fresco Mediterranean-themed Pre-Wedding Celebration
On Bonny & Phillip’s wedding day, guests awoke to a typical summers day in Franschhoek with perfect weather conditions and a bright blue sky. Being naturally sporty families and incredibly health-conscious, the family’s siblings challenged each other to a highly competitive tennis match that was perfect for building up an enormous appetite for the Mediterranean feast that awaited them.
An idyllic Pre-Wedding Celebration
The natural olive groves at Sandstone House formed the perfect backdrop for Bonny & Phillip’s pre-wedding brunch. We drew inspiration from the bright colours of the Mediterranean, and the pops of sunny yellow, tangerine orange, and aqua blue contrasted magnificently against the dark greens and greys of the olive orchards.
Bespoke Mediterranean Menu & Cocktails
The intimate outdoor brunch was a delectable feast of all Bonny & Phillip’s favourite breakfast and lunch dishes from around the world. The menu included items like Shakshuka, crushed avocado with dukkah and salsa verde and Bonny’s favourite, freshly baked sourdough bread with an assortment of locally sourced vegan and dairy cheeses.
Unique Design & Styling Details
The styling and design for this pre-wedding celebration included casual yet bespoke details featuring Spanish style crockery, on-trend woven grass placemats with an abundance of magnificent floral arrangements interspersed with fresh fruit which could be eaten from the table.
On a glorious summers day, brunching al fresco was the perfect pre-wedding celebration to get everyone in the mood for the evening’s wedding festivities.
