Gabbi and Kyle met through the alternative nightclub scene in South Africa. Ten years to the month that they first laid eyes on each other they were hitched at Langverwagt Historical Farm in Cape Town.
Touches of Spanish culture were incorporated throughout the day to reflect the couple’s love of the country. It was the first place that they vacationed together and continues to be their favourite place to visit. “Besides the fact that I am completely in love with all that is Spain, it was on our very first vacation overseas together, in a beautiful 18th-century hacienda in Toledo”, the bride began. “We wanted to get married there but couldn’t afford to do a destination wedding with 90-100 close family and friends included, so the challenge then became to recreate the look and feel back home in Cape Town.”
“The aim was to not create a cheesy Spanish theme, but to rather incorporate aspects of the style and food in the right environment to recreate the same ambience. I really wanted it to feel genuine and for guests to truly feel transported. Added to this I wanted to add some vintage touches to reflect my personality, and bit of a Rock n Roll flare to represent Kyle. Overall we wanted a sophisticated and classic look for us to look back on one day.”
