04 Apr Melanie & Andrew, Belair Estate
Their story began in the midst of both their workplaces, Andrew being a manager and Melanie, his trainee.
It was his confidence and educated work ethic that caught Melanie’s attention. After chatting on the phone for a few months they finally had their first date. What better place to have a romantic date than the town of Stellenbosch!
With similar interests, adventures at wine estates and fun memories, they fell deeply in love. Melanie and Andrew both knew that they were going to marry each other.
A weekend away to Paternoster turned into an unexpected sunset proposal on the beach. He proposed with a ring that he secretly designed himself.
With it being my first wedding at Belair Country House in Paarl, I was blown away by the beautiful light and gorgeous garden – any photographer’s dream!
The most challenging part for Melanie was finding her wedding dress. She met with Didi, from Didi Couture and immediately knew that her creativity and talent would create her desired dress. Melanie loved her low-back French Chantilly lace dress.
And because weddings can sometimes be total overwelhming, Celeste from Celeste Styled Events was there to organize everything to perfection.
Their most treasured moments include the walk down the aisle, the kiss after being announced husband and wife, and their first dance.
I saw everlasting love happening before my eyes and I wish Melanie and Andrew many more adventures together.
