Lauren and Mike had their gorgeous wedding at Cape Point Vineyard. We love the gorgeous blush pink and navy blue accents of their wedding; the perfect colour scheme for a romantic wedding. Yeah Yeah Photography did an amazing job with the photos!
Lovebirds | How did you two meet?
We had previously met twice. But I (Lauren) forgot I had met Mike. Luckily he remembered me by my unconventional dance moves and a mutual friend arranged a dinner for a more formal introduction and the rest is history!
I said Yes | How did the proposal go down?
The day started out very normally with skateboarding along Sea Point prom and sushi. That night we had plans to watch sunset from the lighthouse in Kommetjie. Little did I know, our friends had set up the room at the top of the lighthouse with roses, champagne and candles. Mike popped the question and our friends joined us for that special sunset. I absolutely love lighthouses and so the proposal felt like something out of my dreams. We had a romantic candlelit dinner (thanks loadshedding) and dessert with our families at the waterfront. The most perfect day :).
The Big Day | Tell us the most memorable moment of your wedding day?
It was such an overwhelming day filled with our favourite people, amazing food and SO MUCH LOVE. But my most memorable moment was probably after we had entered the reception venue and the announcement that starters were served, everyone got up out of their seats to watch the most spectacular sunset. I loved that people felt comfortable and not hungry! Hehe. A strong contender for first was definitely the dance floor, because, you know, I love my unconventional dance moves ;)

Delegate! You don’t notice the ‘details’ on the day. So those who offer help, let them help! It makes for a far less stressful wedding planning period.
