Garden Route

Pierre & Madeleen – Villa Castollini Wedding, Knysna

Villa Castollini Wedding

Pierre & Madeleen decided on a Villa Castollini Wedding at Brenton-on-sea near Knysna in the beautiful Garden Route district.

I first met the couple on their family farm for their engagement shoot and it was soon discovered that our families grew up together. Pierre also has an avid eye for photography and we quickly eased into a relaxed shoot. Weather didn’t play along too well, so we redid a few engagement portraits when the spectacular mountain views were more visible. The early, cold morning was worth it, especially because the field and mountain views are the resting place of Madeleen’s late father.

A perfect Knysna Wedding

Their wedding day was just as perfect. A heart felt celebration with their closest friends and families. There were tears, laughter, and so much fun and joy. A Villa Castollini Wedding is known for the spectacular views of the Knysna lagoon. The guests were treated to this view with live music. The harvest table is a must with a variety of home baked breads. For the couple photos, we made use of the mature forest trees on the estate as well as a beautiful sunset over the beach at Brenton on Sea.  

Another trademark of a Villa Castollini wedding is their food. If you want to spoil your guests with a wonderful food pallet, then this is the place. Home made ice cream (so Yam!) completed a delicious plated meal. A nice touch was the McDonalds burgers for that late-night snack.

Pierre & Madeleen’s Villa Castollini wedding was one for the books with so many beautiful heartfelt moments and wonderful memories!

Villa Castollini Wedding Venue

I have been shooting weddings at Villa Castollini since 2008 (probably around 20 weddings over the years). Every time I am amazed at the views! There truly is no other venue like this in the Garden Route. The staff is top notch professional and so friendly. They always go the extra mile for their clients. The food is just the best and their decor is stunning. I have stayed over in the accommodation as well and it was perfect.

This wedding venue is as good as it gets.  I can highly recommend this establishment!
