Family roots lead this British couple to have their wedding at the beautiful Spier Wine Estate on the outskirts of Stellenbosch. Francois van Tonder, the founder of Sorrento Events, met up with Annie & Jamie in London, after which our team in South Africa dove into planning their wedding. Many skype meetings and e-mails later,…

A traditional wedding was never an option for this young couple. As per the current trend, they chose to forego the typical sit-down dinner at the reception, rather creating beautiful cocktail areas and chill lounges where guests could easily move around and enjoy the party. But Katherine and Jon-Leslie went one step further and also…

Our team made a trip up the West Coast to the scenic town of Yzerfontein where Tracey and Daniel got married one Saturday afternoon at Strandkombuis. You would be hard pressed to find a friendlier, more easygoing couple. Even the gale force wind and tide that didn’t subside as it was supposed to didn’t hinder…

Alex & Alexandra (or Alex & Alex as they call themselves) had their wedding reception at the One & Only in Cape Town. They opted to have a very traditional, elegant look and feel for their celebration. The room was washed in luxurious shades of cream. Flower designs of cream, white and soft pink flowers…

This is the wedding our team has been looking forward to for one and a half years. And when the time finally came, it was flawless! It is immensely satisfying to see the result of your hard work when you have put so much time, love and care into an event. We had coordinators on…

Kim & Chris had an intimate wedding on the iconic Camps Bay Beach, followed by a reception at The Bay Hotel. The décor was tastefully elegant. It was delightful to see three different shades of Proteas in one table design. The impact was astounding. Beach elements were also brought into the reception décor in the form…

We have seen the fynbos-protea combo used in flower arrangements a million times. Yes, it still holds a stunning rustic African appeal, but what if you can glam it up a bit? For this event held at the 12 Apostles Hotel this was exactly what we did. By using the traditional Protea and wooden beads,…

A wedding so dear to our hearts. This time around it was one of our very own coordinator’s turn to have her dream wedding. Shahnee and Derek had their cocktail style wedding at the gorgeous Penhill Manor in Robertson. The Sorrento Team not only had the honor of bringing this day to life, but also of…

It is my pleasure to start this blog by saying that none of our team members melted on the scorching hot day that was the 19th of December 2015. Yes, you can probably recall that Saturday! Despite the heat, our team rose to the challenge, resulting in yet another exquisite wedding. The venue of the…

The Belmond Mount Nelson Hotel wanted to showcase their spectacular new banqueting rooms and so they enlisted the help of Sorrento Events and photographer Micky Hoyle to create these beautiful images. Blood, sweat and luckily not so many tears went into this styled shoot to transform these rooms into irresistible venues.        …

Francois and Terri’s wedding had a lavish outdoor reception at Constantia Uitsig. It had everything to offer, including  garden lounge pockets, draping from the trees, a decadent dessert table and a fun table for the kids! As a team we had an amazing time working with this couple. We feel so privileged to have had a hand in…

This exquisite wedding at the Mount Nelson is one of our favourites. The pink-tinted glassware and romantic floral designs made one look at the world with the rose-tinted glasses of true love. The wedding played with classic beauty, adding unexpected colour to elegant décor. A huge thank you to DNA photographers for their incredible work.…

The historical Cape Dutch architecture, undulating vineyards and breathtaking mountain scenery of Vrede en Lust set the perfect scene for this wedding. To compliment this romantic venue, tables were designed in a colour pallet that included shades of pink and beige with touches of silver. The result was magnificent!
