Luxurious destination Winelands wedding
Located near the top of the famous Helmshoogte Pass in Stellenbosch, Tokara Wine Estate boasts magnificent views of the Winelands valley. It is a prestigious venue for smaller, luxurious intimate weddings.
The Tokara vineyards’ iconic backdrop framed Owen and Sheri’s modern outdoor wedding ceremony, and guests were treated to a fantastic display by the resident peacocks.
Their opulent and contemporary white and gold wedding reception decor worked perfectly with the modern paintings and interior design in the restaurant.
We had the pleasure of coordinating this magnificent wedding for Owen and Sheri at Tokara Wine Estate in October 2017. Everything about this wedding was luxurious, stunning, beautiful and filled with love!
Owen and Sheri are childhood sweethearts. Their love and friendship are clear to everyone that witnessed their wedding ceremony and heard the speeches!
Sheri’s gorgeous sense of style lent itself to a clean and striking neutral palette of whites, golds, rose golds, and Decor4U did a fabulous job with decor elements, tablescapes, and flowers!
Sheri’s gorgeous wedding dress was designed for her by Kobus Dippenaar Atelier, one of South Africa’s top wedding dress designers. The intricate lace bodice and full skirt were simply stunning!
The handsome groom and groomsmen all looked very elegant in their tailored suits from Fabiani and crisp white shirts, and we absolutely loved the bridesmaid’s stunning black lace dresses! We adored the cutest little flower girls and page boys, Sheri’s sister’s children! Many weddings these days do not include children, and it was a treat seeing these beautiful little people part of their wedding! Owen and Sheri even created a special lounge area just for the kiddies to relax and play in!
The very talented Helga Strydom did Sheri and her bridesmaid’s hair and makeup, and they all looked stunning!
The very talented Wade made their wedding cake from Wades Cakes, one of our favourite confectioners!
The light at Tokara Wine Estate in summer is beyond magical, and Jana Marnewick’s incredible wedding photographs perfectly showcase this elegant wedding as well as the love, laughter and friendship that was so abundant during this special celebration. This is definitely a wedding we will remember for a long time to come!
Thank you, Sheri, for your lovely wedding testimonial.
