HOW… DID THE TWO OF YOU MEET?
Alex and I met in Stellenbosch in 2008… two students enjoying a night out at the famous Nu’bar in Stellenbosch. Alex asked me to accompany him to his formal house dance and the rest is history.
WHY… DID YOU CHOOSE WATERKLOOF FOR YOUR SPECIAL DAY?
Waterkloof offers the best of both – spectacular views of mountains and vineyards, as well as breathtaking views of False Bay. We fell in love with the setting the moment we drove up the pathway to the ‘Cellar in the Sky’. It was the perfect choice for us.
WHAT… IS YOUR BEST MEMORY OF THE DAY?
The best memory of the day is the moment I locked eyes with Alex, my soon-to-be husband, as I walked down the aisle. It was a magical moment. Other great memories were: the pre-drinks with live music in the background, the reception with the decor, flowers and lighting –seeing how everything came together so beautifully, it was all I ever imagined and more. Our wedding day was perfect, everything I dreamed about.
WHAT… IS YOUR FAVOURITE WATERKLOOF WINE AND DISH?
Peacock Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon and the Beef Fillet – absolute hit!
DO YOU… HAVE ANY ADVICE FOR FUTURE BRIDES?
Enjoy every moment, cherish all the memories and take a moment during your wedding day, sit back and create a snapshot in your memory of how the reception looks, what a great time your guests are having… these memories will always be a reminder of your perfect day.
