Talking weddings with Tanya
Where did you get married?
We got married in the beautiful winelands in Franschoek at a gorgeous wine estate, Vrede en Lust. It may be cliché but my wedding truly and honestly was a girl’s fairy tale – a dream wedding come true. Although it all started a little funny… My stepdaughter was in charge of arranging a dinner for close family and friends the night before our wedding but was a little young for the task at hand (at the time) and this ‘Afrikaanse meisie’ ended up having a braai at the wine estate for all my guests! It turned out to be a great success though and I’d say in one word, our wedding was ‘magical!’
With access to so much wedding inspiration, how did you choose your style and theme for the big day?
I wanted it to capture romance and love, in its essence and knew my very good friend, Gavin Rajah was just the person to capture that. He executed it perfectly.
What advice would you give to someone planning their own wedding?
Hire a good wedding planner for all the stress and anxiety that goes with wedding planning so that you can enjoy this very beautiful and special time in your life and rather let somebody else to get stressed out with the nitty gritty. Enjoy being a bride and savour every moment.
