Looking for a classy venue for your wedding? Le Manoir de Brendel is a 5-star spa, wine and guest estate nestled in the heart of the magnificent Franschoek valley, which offers superb service and have their own little chapel with church wedding bells and all…
This was Duo Decadence’s first wedding for 2013. The chapel seats about 40 guests and our live wedding music was a perfect fit in regards to space, acoustics and atmosphere. We played the flower girl in on Canon in D, the bride followed on the traditional Wedding March and she left the church on The Trumpet Voluntary.
While music is the language of memory, the bride and groom created their own special memories by engraving their wedding date, as well as the Hebrew word “Mizpah” into the rings. Mizpah translates from Genesis 31:49, meaning: “May the LORD keep watch between you and me when we are away from each other.” We managed to capture this special moment during which the bride explained the significance of the word “Mizpah”.
It was time to quickly pack up and move to the pre-drinks area – I think we have by now mastered the art of packing and unpacking at a fast pace! We were set up and ready to play before the first guests arrive. Everyone enjoyed some icy drinks while we entertained them on light minuets and trios – what a festive feel with guests hanging around, catching up with old friends and chatting away while the couple had their photos taken.
As we left and the guests also started to move inside for dinner, we came across the wedding car. It is always amazing to notice how people go into the finest detail to make their day extra special… note that the number plates were even colour coded.
This was a fruitful day for us once again, to build new relationships with pastor Timothy at His People, N1 City, who married Vince and Monique and also with the manager at the Guest House. We’ll see you around and thanks for recommending our services, we’ll do the same.
And last but not least….if you truly need superb service by a wedding planner, feel free to contact Jaco @ 0769389003. We truly enjoyed working with his team and can testify that this was one of the most organized weddings over the last couple of years. You did a fantastic job!
Blessings to Vince and Monique, stay the beautiful couple as on your wedding day.
