Mediterranean brunch in the olive grove – Sandstone House, Franschhoek Wedding
When the venue you select to marry at, has an olive grove, it begs you to host a mediterranean themed brunch in it. These colours and the fruit really were enough to transcend one to a Tuscan landscape for a wonderful pre-wedding breakfast with your nearest and dearest. I loved these colours and textures for a more traditionally styled event. nearly all the flowers were locally grown and sourced, apart from the garden roses which came from Kenya. And much of the foliage came directly from my own garden, ensuring the lowest footprint possible, to offset the imported flowers that were indeed a special addition to the overall designs.
This was the second of 5 individually designed and styled parts to an intimate wedding for 11 family members only, held over 4 separate days in the beautiful towns of Franschhoek and Llududno in Cape Town.
The concepts were put together by the creative guru Johan from Scape Events and we filled in the floral blocks. What a delight it was to style this event in these gorgeous colours and create a lovely, relaxed start to the couple’s wedding day. With mismatched cutlery, antique crockery and gorgeous colour-coded napkins, it was wonderful way to start my contribution to this beautiful event.
A delicious breakfast with freshly squeezed juices, home made banana bread and granola and more were served by the food whizzes from Table Seven
The event was expertly managed by Ursula of Boutique Concepts with whom it is always a pleasure to work and I am constantly grateful for being part of her events.
The concept was put together and furniture styled & supplied by Scape Events
