Lwazi & Sindiswa
Lwazi and Sindiswa decided on Val de Vie Estate as the backdrop for their magnificent wedding. Lwazi suggested the amazing venue a week after they got engaged, and Sindiswa immediately fell in love with what she saw they could offer…
…“The wedding was intimate, but spectacular. The best day of our lives. Every detail was attended to, and the guests looked splendid,” Sindiswa says.
The couple agonised for a while on what look and feel they wanted for the day, but they finally settled on a black and white colour scheme. “The ladies from Grand Room Design took our concept and turned it into a ‘Great Gatsby’ experience.” Sindiswa’s dress fitted into their theme perfectly. It was inspired by the TV series, ‘Games of Thrones’ and a design that she came across on Instagram.
What would the couple change about the day? “Nothing, except that it went by in a flash,” she says. And what were the highlights? “Everything, but especially the guests. They really came to the party to party.”
“Saying our vows was absolutely amazing! I can’t explain the joy I felt finally standing next to the man of my dreams as his wife, and knowing he was my husband. He’d been looking forward to it from before we started dating.”
For their honeymoon, the couple spent five days in Rome, Italy, followed further five days and nights on the Greek island of Santorini.
Sandiswa’s advice to future brides? “Take your time before making any decision, but, equally important, surround yourself with specialists.”
