We are delighted to share images of Karen and Phil’s beautiful wedding at Morgensvlei in Tulbagh.

Karen and Phil got married earlier this year in February, in the middle of South Africa’s Summer. They chose the historic country town of Tulbagh, to host their wedding celebration. Just an hour and a half drive from Cape Town, Tulbagh is nestled in a small valley with many popular wine farms, historic buildings, and is surrounded by a majestic mountain range – perfect for a weekend wedding away!

The couple chose to have a stylish wedding celebration, incorporating elegant and vintage décor elements to create a chic yet classic atmosphere.

Their wedding colour scheme was a combination of off-white and ivory to reflect a vintage backdrop with touches of colour in shades of deep aubergine purple and fresh green, which was reflected in the floral arrangements. Accessories of glass were combined with different mercury and silver vases.
