Deirdre & Hugo

Private Farm - Witzenberg - Ceres

Family. Love. Celebration.  The three words I will use to describe Deirdre and Hugo’s wedding day.  From our first meeting I knew that this will be an extremely special event due to the fact that the couple and their family had the right vision for the wedding day.  We loved traveling to Ceres for site inspections with Deirdre’s family.  It was never just a formal meeting.  It always felt like we were visiting old friends so it was never quick!

Thank you to the Du Toit family who welcomed us into their home and allowing us to be part of this celebration.  Of course when you get a bride that says you can do whatever you think can work within the short description she provides us with, we are very close to heaven!  And that is exactly why this day was filled with so much fun.  Don’t get me wrong…the logistics that went into this wedding was hectic seeing that the reception was held on top of a mountain on one of their farm… But we LOVED the challenges we had to face.  The ceremony was held in the Dutch Reformed church in Ceres and guests were taken to the reception by different shuttles.  They had no idea what they were in for… Over the Gydo pass just outside Ceres guests were lead through breath taking views until they reached their destination on top of a mountain overlooking the Witzenberg Valley.  Words cannot describe the vibe we had on top of that mountain…  Will Punt from Peartree Photography was there to, as always, capture EVERY DETAIL to absolute perfection.  After the pre-drinks guests were ushered into the main tent where the reception took place.  We created a rustic yet elegant look and feel for this vibrant couple.  The tent was placed strategically so that we could make use of the beautiful trees who served as one of the “walls” of the reception area.  Newton & Co entertained the guests with their unique backdrop consisting of a Wendy House, mass fairy lights in the trees and marquee letters.  Deirdre & Hugo was so relaxed since the minute the wedding started.  It was clear that they are loved by all their friends and family.  Their hearts are in the right place…  The event was one big celebration and Deirdre looked like a real princess.  Thank you that we could help you create this extraordinary event for you…
