A Traditional Vineyard Wedding in Cape Town, South Africa

For their late August wedding in Cape Town, South Africa, Carmen Visser (28 and a sales and account manager) and Manfred Hoebel (28 and a technical account manager) gathered their closest family and friends for an intimate celebration at the Nitida Wine Farm. With its breathtaking mountain vistas and acres of lush vineyards, the Nitida offered an awe-inspiring backdrop for the couple’s vows.

The day started with a tented ceremony overlooking the lush, expansive property, in which Carmen and Manfred exchanged heartfelt vows they’d written themselves. As an extra special touch, Manfred showed off his ukulele skills during Carmen’s processional and later shared a song with his wife-to-be and guests.

The rest of the evening unfolded indoors, with a spectrum of vibrant purple hues infusing the elegant dining room with color and life. Lace table runners and antique bird cages filled with fresh florals lent the decor a note of old world flair, while details like mirrored plaques and bunches of seasonal purple and white blooms brought a contemporary edge to the overall aesthetic.
