WeddingDavid & BiancaHartford House

Dave and Bianca held their black-tie wedding at Hartford House, a picturesque boutique hotel situated at Summerhill Stud Farm in the Natal Midlands. We were thrilled that the autumn leaves hung around on the treelined lanes and covered the ground with a crunch of golden brown.

“Dave and I wanted to create a day to remember – A magical formal winter wedding filled with the contrast of rich and warm colours, combined with the experience of an outdoor wedding, inside. We wanted our day to be close, intimate, filled with delicious wine and food. A setting created for overflowing love and memories that would last forever.

Walking down the aisle with my father by my side, towards the man of dreams was the best part of my day. Seeing Dave’s emotions towards me was something I will never forget. It was like it was just the two of us in a bubble.” – Bianca

“My favourite moment of the day was experiencing the raw emotion I felt, watching my breathtaking bride walk towards me. Nothing else mattered.” – David

The mix of exquisite detail and deep emotion that flowed through Dave and B’s wedding day will warm your hearts and leave you inspired. (Oh and watch out for the Soweto Choir’s flashmob during the reception – it was epic!)
