Arne and Hanco
10 Dec 2016 – Stellenbosch
Sometimes it takes a courageous soul to stick to the plan. This was the case with Arne and Hanco. Right from the beginning, they knew what they liked and wanted, and right through to the very last sprig of greenery; we stuck to Arne’s relentless resolve to use ONLY greens (how Gerrit’s heart jumped when later that year, the Pantone Colour of the Year was announced: a shade called Greenery!), light natural wood accents and clean lines throughout. Being a breakfast wedding, guests arrived early in fresh and light linens to witness the union of the classically beautiful Arne and her handsome Hanco. For those less rested, there was a call-order truck dispensing the caffeine fix! After the forest set-ceremony, guests were treated to a make-your-own-mimosa station and a variety of morning-friendly foods dreamt up by the bride and Mariette. Inside, we made use of clear ghost chairs, natural wooden pallet tables, a penny-gum runner spanning the entire length of the table and hanging gardens of green in the chandeliers to create a light, fresh and stylish setting for the reception. The entire day spoke of the elegance and effortlessly chiq style of an era perhaps gone by, but most certainly revisited by these two and all their guests alike.
