In city lights and passing cars, on winding roads and wishing stars.”

Melani & Marthinus

Destination Wedding at Cabrières, Montagu

It’s not everyday that I get to travel to my hometown for weddings. Needless to say: Whenever I do, my heart is filled with nostalgia and newly found admiration for this hidden gem.

Melani & Marthinus held their beautifully, simple and intimate wedding, at Cabrières Wine Farm – A gorgeous little wedding venue, nestled among the mountains, surrounding Montagu.

These two wonderful souls, are madly in love with one another and I really adored every moment spent with them. Every single detail on their day was absolutely perfect: From an outdoor ceremony, under a large peppercorn tree, overlooking the vineyards & valleys below. To delicious, sunset Canapés with the most amazing view. The formalities followed, with a romantic dinner inside the lovely decorated, rustic cellar. Candles & fairy lights lit up the evening, with only friends & family’s laughter to compete with. The outdoor, dance floor soon opened with Melani & Marthinus’s evident (and infamous) love of dancing.

I am so excited to be sharing, a few photos, from one of my favourite destination weddings with you.
