Ronel and Johan’s Cape Town destination wedding
Enjoy the full feature from Ronel and Johan’s Cape Town destination wedding.
We love seeing couples from across the country coming over for their Cape Town destination wedding! Ronel and Johan decided to follow that dream and get married with the ocean in the background and the beach sand underneath their feet. Not literally, as the ceremony and reception setup was the opposite of simple and low-key!
Ronel was getting ready for her Cape Town destination wedding at the Royal Hotel in sea Point. The spacious, marble- filled interiors and corridors provided an excellent scene for this glamorous bride. We all sighed when we saw the dress! Hand beaded masterpiece from Casper Bosman was both covering and revealing, the gown was perfectly tailored to Ronel’s figure. And if there is one girl in this world that should wear such a daring gown, it’s definitely Ronel! Gorgeous pair of heels finished the look and we got to stroll around the marble promenades taking photos and video.
The ceremony venue for Ronel’s and Johan’s Cape Town destination wedding was setup at The Grand. This venue needs no introduction, it’s the one place in Cape Town where sophisticated luxury meets beach. Karla from Absolute Collection built a palace out of drapings, crystals and flowers for our bride! Lit in all shades of pink, the reception venue looked out of this world. The ceremony was conducted on the beach, underneath sheets of white drapings. The wind gently picked up the fabric and played with it over the guests’s heads. It was such a perfect moment, when everything was ready and all we needed to complete this Cape Town destination wedding was the bride! Rondel looked breathtaking when she walked down the white aisle in her beautiful gown.
We have decided to shoot straight to Clifton for portraits. This iconic beach location offers magnificent mountain views for wedding videography. Rondel and Johan enjoyed a few moments away from the guests, as we snapped away, creating stunning shots of the couple.
The reception setup of this lavish Cape Town destination wedding really came alive after sunset. Crystal chandeliers and candles started shimmering, creating a soft, dream-like fee. The colours of the flowers popped in the spot lights, the drapings came alive in the delicate wind. The guests loved this unique reception setup, that transformed The Grand into a palace for one night. Dancing carried long into the night, as everybody congratulated the couple and wished them all the joy and happiness on their journey ahead.
