Tommy & Aleka


This wedding is definitely one of my favourites!

Tommy and Aleka, otherwise affectionately known as “Tomeka”, travelled from the UK with their friends and family to get married in beautiful South Africa.

The weekend’s festivities started with a Friday cricket tournament complete with branded hats, custom-made travel guides, food trucks, lilos and a killer view of the mountain- what a vibe!

What followed was the most magical, laid back wedding at Babylonstoren. We loved the little “events” that were created to entertain everyone. Guests started in the house of shadows for the ceremony after which they were ushered through the wooden archway with champagne, through the garden to the canapés station where Zamanani Brothers Cultural Group entertained guests with their beautiful voices and dance moves.

Guests were then transported to a wonderland of greenery and fairy lights for dinner and then casually guided into an all white dessert room across the path. After dessert and dance everyone made their way out onto the grass again for a pizza mid night snacks and then, finally, were entertained in the white room with soothing Jazz and yummy cocktails.

A truly sensational day!
