Caz and Max | Autumn Wedding in Dullstroom

Love is what happens when two hearts find their happy place right beside each other. We’re looking back at one of our favourite couples – Caz and Max – and their gorgeous wedding with us at Walkersons Hotel & Spa in May 2021. Mint Tea Photography beautifully captured their special day, which was shared with 50 of their nearest and dearest.

Johannesburg-based couple Caz and Max met through a mutual friend in 2014, embarking upon a storybook journey that culminated in his proposal in front of a dam called ‘reflections in the water’ in Tulbagh.

When asked about why they chose the quaint town of Dullstroom, Caz explained “I have been going to Dullstroom since I was a little girl to fly fish with my family. Max became part of that tradition when we started dating and we absolutely love being there together. It also has a very special place in my heart as it reminds me of my late mother.”

As for why they selected Walkersons Hotel & Spa as the venue for their big day, she said “Walkersons captures all the beauty and character of the beautiful Dullstroom.”

Caz got all dolled up in our Honeymoon Suite, the flagship room at the hotel. Complete with a fireplace, a four poster bed, a large jacuzzi bath and picturesque countryside views, it was an idyllic setting for her to get ready. She wore a stunning Vonvé Bridal Couture dress while Max wore a fitted black suit and matching bow tie.

For the ceremony, a four-poster wooden arbour was erected on the grass beside one of Walkersons famous dams. Adorned with roses, peonies, hydrangeas, snapdragons, pampas grass, and more, the arch completely suited the picturesque outdoor setting. As Caz explained: “Getting married in front of the dam was definitely our favourite backdrop.”

Walkersons Estate boasts countless backdrops for exceptional wedding photographs from open pastures and waterfalls to green fields and winding roads. What do you think about their choice of settings below?

The table setting was understated yet mesmerising: exposed wood tables topped by pale pink table runners, simple white candles and lush flower arrangements.

All in all, explained Caz, “We had the most incredible experience at Walkersons. The team was very accommodating and did everything they could to make us happy.”
