Stacey and Richard’s wedding
On Thursday 6th April 2023, Stacey and Richard got married. What a wonderful celebration of family, love, and joy.
Stacey and Richard reside in the UK, Stacey is originally from New Zealand, and Richard is from South Africa. They had a long journey to get to their wedding day, Covid interfered with their plans along the way. At the start, we began planning their wedding with venue ideas and once they had seen a few, lockdowns were happening so they decided to postpone until further notice. After 2 years, they returned and we continued the planning. They were toying with the idea of getting married in Plett, but Cape Town was the chosen city. They viewed quite a few wedding venues and finally decide to book La Paris.
La Paris is a stunning venue between Paarl and Franschhoek. We love this venue as it is adaptable to any couple and style. They have a large open lawn where a marquee or tent can be erected. Stacey choose a Bedouin tent which suited their look & feel of simple and fun.
During the wedding wait, they actually got married abroad and started a family. Their little boy, Caleb was to be included in the wedding. He is just too cute! This meant their wedding was more of a celebration, rather than saying I do’s. They opted for many wedding traditions but included elements of fun.
The ceremony took place in the rose garden, with 92 guests who came from all over the world. They asked a good friend to officiate the wedding ceremony, who shared the couple’s personal stories. After throwing the confetti, it was time to get the party started.
The pre-drinks were held at The Arbour lawn area, we set up a bar with canapés being served. The guests enjoyed some time to mingle while the couple went for their couple shoot with the photographer.
The colours and style were sage greens, white creams, and natural tones. From the gorgeous oranges tones of the seasonal local flowers to the natural oak dance floor, it suited this down-to-earth couple. N-concepts did a great job with the flowers and décor elements.
We booked the band, Me & Mr. Green who played live sets at the reception, they are amazing at getting the party started. The tent looked festive with fairy lights, a full moon, and a packed dance floor.
Congrats to Stacey and Richard, we hope they had as much fun as we did planning their wedding. They were a delight to work with and an easy-go-lucky couple who deserve only the best. Wishing them success and happiness in their future adventures.
A huge thank you to all the suppliers involved in this wedding, we could not have done it without you.
