Bongani and Lungi’s elegant boutique hotel wedding
Bongani and Lungi both living up the north coast of Kwazulu Natal, decided to hold their wedding day in Ballito which was further south to where they lived. This started to cause a few problems for the couple. Trying to organise and meet with suppliers was proving very stressful. So they decided to call on the assistance of Timeless Weddings to make things easier, and to bring their dream day to fruition. Finally after a date change for the wedding day, it was full steam ahead with the planning.
The venue selected was the elegant boutique hotel called Boulevard 44 chosen for its modern setting and the open feel to the venue. The couple opted to exchange their vows on the pool deck area. One of the big attractions of this venue is the stunning sunsets that the guests are treated to during cocktail hour – on the actual wedding day, this did not disappoint.
The colour scheme for the wedding was gold and cream. Both Bongani and Lungi wanted to create an upmarket and elegant wedding setting. Timeless Weddings achieved this by using light gold taffeta table cloths, deep gold base plates and beautiful clear Tiffany chairs adorned with a cream tulle chair tie on every second chair.
The beautiful flowers were done by Sue from Sue’s flowers. These were achieved by using tall glass vases placed on a mirror with a ball of roses and greenery on the top. Suspended around the balls of flowers were strings of pearls and around the base were votive candles. To bring in a slightly more modern and contemporary feel to the tables, the table numbers were mirror Perspex which finished it off beautifully.
The delicious cake was a tower of individual cakes with collars of white or dark chocolate – each with a thin gold ribbon at the base and a chocolate twirl on the top. There was a bigger cake for cutting and small boxes were provided for those wanting to take the cake home. It made the entire venue smell devine and edible!
The couple opted for limited invites to be printed and Timeless Weddings arranged for a personalised website to be done informing the guests of all the important wedding details. For the photo shoot, Bongani and Lungi were whisked off in the luxury of a Jag and the photographs were taken around the Ballito area.
Your day was beautiful and along with your traditional Zulu celebration, certainly a wedding to remember for all your guests. May all your days be filled with beautiful sunsets like your wedding day!
