What do you do if your wedding guests hail from every continent of the globe and you want them to get to know each other before the Big Day? You throw an epic party the night before and let them mingle under the stars till the early hours, of course.
JP and James currently live in Switzerland, but they chose to get married at Vrede en Lust Wine Estate here in sunny South Africa. For their rehearsal dinner the night before the wedding, they wanted something completely different to the style and look/ feel of the next day. For this reason, we set up long, raw, wooden tables on the lawn in front of the Manor House and played around with fresh greens, whites and beautiful botanical elements.
Bistro lights mimicked the stars above the heads of the guests and the sweet sounds of a saxophone provided the background music to this stylish soirée.
