BLACK AND GOLD GLAMOUR
A bold colour scheme adds drama to Jonice and Wian’s classy celebration
COUPLE: Jonice de Villiers and Wian Laidlaw VENUE: Landtscap, Stellenbosch BUDGET: R150 000 GUESTS: 40
Wian proposed to his then-girlfriend of 18 months, Jonice, during a holiday in Botswana. “They say to test your love you have to travel together. It worked for us!” says Jonice (32), a make-up artist and hairstylist. And she did not hesitate to say yes when Wian (31), who owns a transport company, asked the question on the banks of the Chobe river under a starry sky and full moon.
Their wedding day at Landtscap in Stellenbosch eight months later was far removed from their camping adventure – there was nothing rustic about the elegant affair with a colour scheme of black, gold and crystal.
Even though an icy wind forced them to move the ceremony indoors, the Pretoriabased couple say they loved everything about their glitzy day of love.
