This couple came all the way from Gabon to have their wedding celebration at Zarose venue in Stellenbosch. With the help of close friends, they managed to plan a beautiful wedding day in December. I was very excited to book this wedding as I have wanted to shoot at this venue for some time and this couple did not disappoint.
The day started with Regine getting ready in the Zarose Venue beautiful bridal suite while surrounded by a hum of activity. Girls were getting dressed, having their hair styled and their make up done. There was so much excitement in the air about the day that was about to unfold!
I absolutely adore Regine’s dress choice as I love soft, full skirts and long sleeve, lace gowns. She not only had this gown, which was perfect for the ceremony, but a second and third gown for the reception! I was lucky enough to be around to see all three and boy did she look gorgeous.
Their ceremony took place on the deck outside the reception venue with a view of the Stellenbosch mountains. It was a joyous ceremony with guests dancing and cheering for the couple. Once they had been pronounced husband and wife and sealed it with a kiss, I spent a little time with Regine and Joel on the estate doing their couple portraits before Regine was whisked off to change into dress number two.
The romantic, pink reception kicked off with a bang with the couple’s dancing entrance and continued to be festive throughout. There was alot of dancing and happy cheers for the bridal couple. The party continued into the night as their friends and family joined the couple on the dance floor.
Congratulations Regine and Joel! Thank you for having me along for this very exciting ride.
