Karike & Werner

Martijn Roos -8617

Back in March 2017 we had the honor to be a part of this beautiful couple’s wedding day.

Karike & Werner had a truly extraordinary weekend with us, celebrating their family and friends and showing the type of love you can see when being around them. The Roos brothers did not disappoint in capturing this with their combined photography ad videography! Just take a look at the amazing video below showcasing the wonderful weekend in the Nuy Valley.

The weekend started off with a get together of the family and friends the evening before. They had a pizza tuk-tuk catering for them the evening and we provided drinks. They had some fun and games with family including Giant Jenga and our Italian bowl set.

Saturday the guys kicked off the day with a Nuy Valley Tractor Trailer drive to Willowcreek for olive oil tasting and Conradie Family Vineyards for wine tasting and finished at Leipzig with wine tasting. All while the girls started their day out with make-up, bubbly, fun and laughter with her bridesmaids.

A beautiful ceremony took place in our garden underneath the century old oak tree and this is also where both of them said their own vows to each other. Werner promised all his love to Karike and promised she would never walk alone again. He also promised to walk hand in hand with their path leading forward.

She promised where he’ll go, she’ll go and stay where he is. His God is hers and she chooses him above all with all of his strengths and weakness. She chooses him and him alone and is looking forward for the road ahead.

The group went to take photos at the amphitheater and we quickly turned the ceremony area into their pre-drinks area.  Hosted outside in the garden with games for young and old. Guests were spoiled with Saggy Stone beer, cocktails, while waiters roamed around with gourmet canapes.

Their colour scheme green, white & touches of gold. The reception so beautiful with candles surrounding the entire hall. Slow braised Red Wine Lamb Shanks was a sensation for main, while others enjoyed a Creamed White Leipzig Chicken dish as an option. Guests danced the night away with decadent canape-style desserts to snack on.

The crowd were definite dancers and the floor was full the entire evening. They opened the  dancefloor with bubbles surrounding the two of them, upon their second song all guest popped crackers filled with golden confetti and danced the night away.

The Month Of Love

Bride & Groom Cake

Did you know that February is National Wedding Month?

Not only are we three weeks into the month of love, but also the National Wedding Month. And what a beautiful month to get married in South Africa. Valentine’s day has become such a popular day to get married on, that people are booking these dates well in advance. The month of love also brings us an extra day every four years, which has also become a very popular date for weddings. With so much love, why not get married in February.

Have a look at one of our beautiful weddings, showcasing so much love. The most amazing pink hydrangeas and natural table settings. The couple had a lot of natural items brought into their wedding with flower arrangements on¬†our rustic arch and wooden planks at their table settings. Leipzig Country House offers so many outside areas with beautiful sceneries for the most amazing photos. See for yourself…

Round vs Rectangular

Round vs Rectangular…
When doing your to do list for your wedding, you will come to the point of your table plan and who is going to sit where. First of all, you need to decide what sort of tables you are going to have…Rectangular or Round tables? Or the nowadays, popular, long tables?
This thought shouldn’t be keeping you awake. I have some pointers for those who struggle.
Most people go for the round option because they think their guests will interact better than with rectangular tables. That is not the case. Round tables have a bigger surface between the opposite guests than rectangular table. Rectangular tables are just as easy to interact than round tables, you will be able to speak to guests next to you, across from you and diagonal.
Long tables are basically the same as rectangular tables, just next to each other. You will still put those guests closest to one another, adjacent to each other.
Basically it depends on your Centre Piece. If it is big and takes up a lot of space, go for round tables. If your Centre Piece will be slim or you would like to go with flowers and candles of different heights, go for rectangular or long tables. Also take in mind the venue and theme.
