Classic, elegant and hopelessly romantic – the words that describe Gunther & Nicola’s wedding.
I just love how Gunther proposed to Nicola: “Gunther booked a weekend away at Platbos Log Cabins in the Slanghoek Valley near Rawsonville. He cooked & set up a romantic dinner for two on the deck over-looking the lake. The deck was decorated with fairy lights and on the table, candles and champagne. When it came to desert time, he surprised me with the ring wedged in the Malva pudding and went down on one knee and proposed to me.”
They chose to get married at the Waldorf School in Stellenbosch – it is a beautiful setting for intimate weddings.
A few tips from the bride:
-Keep a file with all your receipts, emails, quotes and follow up every discussion with service providers EVERYTHING in writing.
-Delegate to friends and family who want to help.
-Do not compromise on your photographer. Get the best you can afford!
