While the 5-star Toadbury Hall is famous for its landscaped gardens, winter is in no way shy of perfect photo opportunities. Bare trees and beige forests, rough rocky backgrounds, a scenic jetty and dam, lavish lounge, a winding staircase – it’s all there for the perfect romantic shot. Add to your Classico theme a photo booth set up, sporting a dreamy teal velvet chair for classic photos to be remembered.
Also trending for 2019, is event branding at weddings. Sounds like a foreign concept? Not necessarily. When a wedding looks “put together”, your event branding is spot on. Think of it as a brand identity for your wedding. And it’s very achievable with a bit of planning and a lot of help from our friend Pinterest.
“No matter the style, cohesive and consistent event branding for weddings is becoming more of the norm. As you can imagine, it starts long before the wedding weekend”, Everygirl.com reports. “Your save the dates and invitations are the first hint to guests what your wedding will be like, and more brides are turning to custom stationery companies to handle designing and producing every element from start to finish.”
Wedding signs and signage, monogrammed napkins, wax-sealed, hand-delivered invites and laser engraved gifts all form part of the event branding of your wedding. This ties in nicely with the trend for smaller weddings where less is more, and quality reigns over quantity.
Cherie Heine and Ashley Heine recently got married in the heart of winter and would not have it any other way: “The venue was gorgeous and we fell in love with the Toad Chapel instantly. The reception was cozy, looked gorgeous and the fireplaces created the perfect atmosphere for a winter wedding! All our guests are still talking about our wedding as being the best they have been to!”
Toadbury Hall Country Hotel caters for small intimate weddings from 10 to 80 guests, in line with the trend to rather invite less guests, and pamper them to no end. Depending on your inclination, you could be treating your nearest and dearest to an intimate wedding in one of several venues including the Toad Hall, Toad Chapel, Toad Gardens, Gazebo or the Rose Chapel and Gardens. With 25 hectares within the Cradle of Humankind and a spot right next to the Crocodile River, it’s easy to see why brides fall in love over and over again.
