Magical Moments at Tashreeqah & Marwaan’s Wedding

Tashreeqah Sadien is a world-renowned wedding dress designer in South Africa. So when she got married we knew her dress was going to be out-of-this-world! Get inspired by Tashreeqah & Marwaan’s wedding at Soetendal as told through the brides’ eyes.

Magical Moments

“The most memorable memory was seeing my husband for the first time after getting married and having him put the ring on my finger. I loved seeing our mothers so happy on this day and my whole family together. Both of our fathers passed on so therefore the presence and joy of our mothers was most important to us.”

The Wedding Dresses

“I got to wear two beautiful couture dresses designed by myself and hand made by an incredible team. Both gowns, the morning and afternoon took an incredible amount of hand work. The morning dress worn to the Nikaah and brunch was scattered with thousands of hand sewn pearls and the afternoon dress was an extravagant fitted dress with an over skirt that was fully beaded. I wanted to a two in one style for the formal reception, a style that is modern and elegant with a lace that is extravagant and fully beaded. I chose a slight champaign colour for the afternoon and an angelic white for the Nikaah (ceremony).”

Bridal Hair

“My hair was in an elegant yet simple bun for both the morning and afternoon attire. Both of my veils was fully beaded as i wanted my veils to be more of a focus and to show off the detailed hand detailing.”

Bridal Makeup

“The ceremony makeup was natural and classic with a nude lip and highlighted cheeks. I wanted a clean makeup look as my ball gown pearl dress was a showstopper on its own. For the afternoon i decided on a bolder lip with darker eyes and more refined cheeks. Makeup was done by Candice Joshua.”

Beautiful Bridesmaids

“For the morning i had two bridesmaids both of my nieces. They wore dresses I designed and made. A fitted crepe dress with tulle wings along the sleeves. The afternoon we had 7 flower girls – beautiful tulle layered dresses.”

The Venues

“We had two receptions. After the Nikaah (ceremony) Marwaan’s family hosted a brunch at Barrons Estate at 11am. The evening reception was held by my family at Soetendal Estate in Wellington – at 4pm. I had an on-the-day planner, Lelani from Unveil Elegance Events who managed my reception with excellence. I was so happy, she managed all my activities and everything that was on the program went off flawless.”

The Reception and Entertainment

“Our reception started at 4pm where our guest was welcomed in the beautiful courtyard with canapés and mock-tails. We had ballerinas roaming in the courtyard and gave out fortune cookies and performed a choreograph dance for our guest. The Grey Duo was in the courtyard playing the violin to a list of modern songs and the best part was the caricatures who sketched our guest in the courtyard upon arrival. Everyone loved him, it was really a great suggestion made by Lelani.”

“Inside the venue the ballerinas entered with Marwaan and myself which was magical and the Grey duo played a violin cover of our entrance song, “Can’t help falling in love” by Elvis Presley. The grey duo further played the violin with some dinner songs during starters and our MC sang the most beautiful songs whilst our guest ate their main course.”

“Our food was made by The Food Basket and our wedding cake from a family friend who owns a small patisserie.”

Wedding Decor & Details

“We wanted our decor to be classic. White linen tablecloths and linen napkins with lots of stem glasses. The flowers we decided on was blush and cream roses with greenery. The backdrop was custom made by Mac Style Hiring which consists of naked bulbs hanging in the background of our bridal table with big arrangement of flowers hanging with it. Our bridal table was filled with flowers. We wanted the bridal table to be the centrepiece in the whole venue. The venue had beautiful white Chanel chairs which really complimented the whole setting.”

Sound & Lighting

“The sound and custom lighting in the venue was done by Park Media. They made the lighting during our first dance in different shades of pinks and whites and the whole venue had a magical feel to it.”
