Cherie & Simon’s Wedding:

Wedding Flowers and Decor at Cape Point Vineyards

We recently did the wedding flowers and decor at Cape Point Vineyards for Cherie and Simon. I was introduced to Cherie and Simon through a friend and colleague, Katharine Price, who was coordinating their wedding day, and hosting them at the beautiful Maesteg Guest House which neighbours the Vineyard and overlooks the breathtaking Noordhoek Valley.

I met Cherie and Simon over a Skype chat and was instantly engaged with this fun-loving, bubbly bride and her chivalrous groom.

Working with these two was the greatest pleasure, as we all pinned away furiously on Cherie’s wedding Pinterest board, gathering ideas and images, most with lots of sparkle, and sharing the feel for the overall style and vision for the flowers and décor for their special day.

Cherie and Simon provided their guests with lawn games to keep them entertained on the terrace during the couple photos. This included giant Jenga, Croquet, Boule and Noughts and Crosses that they enjoyed during pre-drinks, all adding to the fun that this couple is all about.

From the start Cherie told me of her love for all things shiny and how this ‘magpie’ trait had earned her a reputation with her family, who lovingly teased her about this. It was very important to her, and to us, for this to be incorporated into the décor. We did this by using lots of twinkly fairy lights, silver sequinned table runners, mirror trays to reflect the gentle candlelight and the bright and beautiful floral rose bowls.

The couple have travelled extensively together, so they incorporated this into their day by naming the tables after the different destinations they have travelled to together and remembering the richness of their life experiences that brought them to this special day.

We sprinkled table crystals and scattered mercury tea lights for a gorgeous glow on the tables and added turquoise, glittered butterflies, supplied to us by the bride, to add an extra ‘pop’ of colour to their table flowers.

With the freshness of the venue and the white cloths off-setting the exuberance of colour, light and sparkle, the end product was magical.
