Wedding – 04 November 2017 –Vrede en Lust – Wedding Coordinator
We had such a perfect wedding day at Vrede en Lust on November 4, 2017. It was all that we could have hoped for! The weather was perfect; not a cloud to be seen, nor a breath of wind for our ceremony at 4.30pm. We said our “I do’s” with the picturesque vineyards and mountains as a backdrop, full of laughs and emotion. We then celebrated with our 60 guests who travelled from all over the world with canapes, champagne, and live music in the sunshine of the pool lawn with the gorgeous manor house behind us. We snuck away for some photos until we made out grand entrance in the Vineyard terrace. It looked like an absolute fairytale inside: The rustic chic wedding theme came through via long wooden tables, wine barrels and exposed bulbs. This was contrasted with a classic colour palette of navy, blush pink and rose gold which was featured throughout everything from the invitations to the cutlery. The abundance of florals consisting of reds, pinks and a spray of greenery was an absolute highlight. The celebrations continued, and we all laughed and cried through a series of speeches, cake cutting, and our first dance. Our wedding was absolutely perfect, and we could not have chosen a more suitable venue to fit all of our needs.
Elzahn was an absolute pleasure to work with, all the way through from our first meeting when we started looking at venues until after our wedding was over. She always replied to emails promptly, and communication and correspondence was so easy which helped a lot as I was planning our wedding from Australia! Elzahn was very accommodating with my requests and was willing to go the extra mile to make sure the day was perfect. Our wedding went over three days at Vrede en Lust, and we felt that everything worked like clockworks, and that was all due to Elzahn’s hard work. We cannot thank her enough for all of the effort she put in to bring everything together – if we could do it all over again, we would absolutely use Elzahn again as our wedding coordinator, and would recommend her, without hesitation, to anyone who is planning an event!
