Our Weddings - Chantal's Elegant 40th Birthday


Planning a birthday party is always fun but planning a surprise destination 40th birthday weekend in Cape Town is epic!

When we were approached by Chantal's sister in-law Ronell with the brief to design, style and create an ultra luxurious and intimate dinner for Chantal's 40th birthday we knew that this was a very special family.

Chantal's husband treated their family to a weekend in Cape Town at the heavenly Farm Lorraine in Franschhoek. We were initially briefed to design and coordinate a private dinner at the exclusive five star villa but due to the unpredictability of the weather and space constraint we decided it would be better to surprise Chantal with pre-dinner drinks at Farm Lorraine followed by dinner at Grande Provence.

To this day, I will always remember the surprise and love on Chantal's face when she walked through the door and saw what Ronell and Reagan (Chantal's husband) had planned for her!


Ronell has impeccable taste and it was easy to design and style a private dinner for the family in Jonkershuis, the private dining room at  Grande Provence. Executive Chef, Darren Badenhorst's four-course a la carte dinner was as beautifully plated as it was sumptuous to eat with each course served on striking crockery that perfectly complemented the dish.

From the beautiful and opulent flowers by Epanoir Flower Studio to the bespoke and individually printed acetate menu's and dazzling dark chocolate ganache each detail was carefully crafted to create an ambiance of exclusivity, luxury and intimacy. 

Thank you to Dehan Engelbrecht for the magnificently captured memories. The photographs certainly do convey the essence of this very special birthday celebration for a wonderful woman.
