Winelands Wedding : Vintage Elegance

A Winelands Wedding with a classic style and love for vintage touches. Cara & Jaco took the traditional route and got married in a small intimate soireé . Cara’s love for vintage glamour and timeless elegance is very similiar to my own and with us being like family it was a really special event for me to be able to capture this beautiful moment in her & Jaco’s lives.

I was touched to find out that Cara specifically chose a tea length wedding dress because both her mom and grandmother wore tea length wedding dresses on their big days. Cara’s beautiful lace bodice & silk tea length wedding dress was made by Trang Binh Cao and her beautiful 1950’s inspired hair & make up look was put together by non other than Marnel Toerien .

The vintage mood was set with the ceremony being held in the beautiful and historical Stellenbosch Moedergemeente and a breathtaking combination paired with Cara’s elegant and timeless bridal style.

Cara being like a sister to me it was very special to spend the day with their closest family and friends to celebrate the beginning of their story together as Mr & Mrs Willemse.
