Real Weddings: Luxury White Wedding at Molenvliet
ZaraZoo Photography shares this picture-perfect wedding at Molenvliet with us. Nqobile and Bheki’s special day is the perfect balance of elegance and luxury, creating a truly dreamy day that will remain in their memories forever. This high-end outdoor wedding ceremony is reminiscent of Gabrielle Union’s celebrity wedding – glamorous and smart with a happy and charismatic couple. Have a look at the amazing photos and wedding video. Here is main photographer Stefan’s account of the day:
Elegant and Luxurious Wedding in Stellenbosch
When I heard that Wedding Concepts would be coordinating this wedding, I knew we were in for a mind-blowing event. And we were not disappointed. This stunning luxury wedding held at the Molenvliet Estate, radiated opulence and style, from the ceremony to the reception. Kate and her creative team created a unique experience that included both classic and modern design and decor elements. They even featured a custom-made wedding logo throughout, created especially for the couple.
What better setting for this stunning wedding than the new and improved Molenvliet Estate. As you might know, Molenvliet had a few upgrades to their venue during the off season. This features a new ceremony & pre-drinks area right in the middle of the vineyards. And to add to the grandeur of this fantastic estate, the owners installed two massive fountains on either end of the area. The result – a stunning, symmetrical and almost Versailles-like vista, with the towering Franschhoek mountains in the background. The perfect backdrop for some breathtaking wedding photos.
Our ZaraZoo Cine division also covered the wedding videography on the day. Have a look at the highlights video below to get a glimpse into the amazing day.
The Wedding Ceremony and Celebrations
Nqobile and Bheki are one of the bubbliest and charming couples that we have had the opportunity to cover. They radiated happiness and it made our job of taking their photos a joy! Getting to see true love and enjoyment in their expressions was amazing. Both the bride and groom and their entourage got ready at Molenvliet. With a bride tribe of 8 and an equal number on the groom’s side, this wedding party could have filled up a wedding on their own!
Bheki and the boys were dressed in white tuxedo jackets with black pants. While the girls looked ever so stylish in their off-white bridesmaid dresses. Nqobile lived up to her eloquent self, looking like a royal princess in her classic Pronovias wedding dress. All the white wedding elements added to the clean and elegant theme of the day.
After the beautiful ceremony, guests were lead down the hill by the couple and their two sons. Guests were entertained by Buddy Holly and his jazz band while feasting on sumptuous braai bits and an array of other finger foods prepared by Two Chefs while we took the couple away for their formal photos. What a joy it is to work with a couple that enjoys taking photos – we had a blast!
The reception venue was as impressive as the ceremony and pre-drinks area. It even included special Champagne and Whiskey bar and a unique floral experience, as you’d expect from a Wedding Concepts wedding. The evening included a live show by celebrity comedian Felix Hlophe. All in all, the production was a huge success and we’re extremely happy with the end result and the stunning photos we were able to deliver.
