Congratulations to Eugene & Karen van der Merwe who tied the knot at The Cowshed on Saturday, 13th. The weather had us on tenterhooks until mid-afternoon. After yet another downpour and a thirty-minute delay, the sun broke through the clouds and the ceremony was able to commence under the trees as planned. Karen looked magnificent in a strapless, figure-hugging gown which cascaded into an elegant, tiered train. Eugene scrubbed up pretty well too! A very good-looking couple!
After the ceremony, guests enjoyed cocktails and an array of mouth-watering canapés prepared by celebrity chef Franz “The Power Chef” de Waal and his team from Johannesburg. Latin American Live Band, TÓNA, kept the guests entertained whilst the photographers snapped away. Once again, Zaskia excelled herself in the décor stakes, reflecting Karen’s sparkling personality in the many mirrors & sparkling chandeliers which adorned the shed. The tables were elegantly decked in silvery cloth, candelabra & the most gorgeous, deep red roses. Franz and his team served up a delicious royal banquet, after which guests danced and partied deep into the night.
Sunday morning saw us serving breakfast to a tired but happy Karen, Eugene & their families & close friends on The Farmhouse Stoep. We wish them a long and happy life together and look forward to posting some pictures of their fabulous celebrations!
