Real Wedding | Nicholas & Jeanita
Springtime – the sun is out, the birds are chirping and the flowers are blooming! The stunning couple, Jeanita and Nicholas are about to celebrate their wedding at Idlewild Country Estate with their 300 guests.
On arrival guests were treated to a variety of delicious canapés. Guests tucked into our famous beer and drinks tables. They loved the gin station with all its extras, while enjoying the sounds of the Saxophonist getting carried away in the garden! Kids were running around on rolling lawns mesmerised by the Blesbok roaming freely.
The venue was adourned with thousands of fairy and globe lights, with modern draping of the ceiling. The backdrop for the main table was an array of fairy lights with a massive garland of greenery and flowers suspended from the ceiling, this combination really did bring the WOW factor to the venue.
The white dance floor reflected the stunning chandeliers of the venue and the cylinder vases with candles at the base of the bridal table created the perfect mood and ambience. The main table was adorned with a runner of greenery, flowers and an abundance of candles, with the addition of silver cutlery, fine crockery and elegant glasses, it simply oozed elegance.
The décor and flowers consisted of higher and lower candelabras arranged in colours of gold, rose gold, green, white, blush roses, cymbidiums and orchids, which perfectly captured and enhanced the beauty of our authentic wooden tables.
A special Portuguese touch was brought into the menu including Portuguese Rissoles, Caldo Verde and Pasteis De Nata. The mini dessert station with an array of sensational, knockout desserts and Jeanita’s special touch – the doughnut wall – was a smashing hit!
Midnight was munchies time and Chef Ndu speedily made pulled pork bread rolls to the delight of some very hungry guests.
Guests rock and rolled the night away until the early hours of the morning with blazing bonfires and phenomenal music. A truly elegant and cheerful Portuguese Wedding at Idlewild Country Estate.
