Weathered and Wistful Wedding Décor Inspiration
When this group of wedding suppliers in Cape Town came together to create this gorgeous weathered and wistful wedding décor inspiration; the end result was nothing short of jaw-dropping!
Hoogstede is a fifth-generation family-farm, situated at the foot of the Paarlberg. The farm became operational in 1693. This working farm with daily farming activities mainly revolves around vineyards for wine-making.
The shed was used for storage and workshop activities was revamped in 2017 to serve as a venue for weddings and other functions. What makes the Hoogstede venue unique and special is its beautiful view of the surrounding vineyards and the unbelievable sunsets. On clear days even Table mountain is visible in the distance.
Coordination & Styling
Happinest Hire started with a small décor hire collection and a BIG vision. Fuelled by pizza and a minor strawberry swirl addiction, the collection quickly grew and the vision followed suit, and today we are a full-service design, manufacturing, and event hiring company, making badass bridal dreams come true and rocking corporate events and brand experiences that need that extra POP of creativity.

Wedding accessories and jewelry
Marelé Moolman, driven by her passion for creating unique pieces and wanting to explore new horizons joined the workshop of David Bolding in 2005 as assistant manager and in 2007 freeRange JEWELS came into being as a result of Marele’s desire to keep her own creative energy vibrating.
Real and raw moments are important to Lauren, and this is why she takes a non-intrusive approach to photograph your wedding day as she prefers to capture those ‘real’ and unposed moments, however, should there be a spot of perfect light, Lauren Pretorius Photography may ask you to go stand there for some beautiful portrait/couple photographs.
“Photographing a wedding, is something so special and something so incredible. Not only is each wedding COMPLETELY unique; I love the whirlwind of emotions and the little moments going on in-between everything. I am often asked to describe my style which sometimes can be tricky. If I had to use only three words, I would say that my work is; HONEST, RAW, and EMOTIVE.”
