At the ninth edition of the Belief Awards, Christina Holt (Wedding Concepts), wedding planner to Sarah Langa, won the prize for the best cultural wedding.
About the wedding:
The wedding of South African, fashion blogger and social media influencer, Sarah Langa, to her fiancé Jehan, a CEO of one of South Africa’s largest technology companies, was bound to be a designer affair!
When the renowned team from Wedding Concepts first met with this high-profile couple it would ultimately be two bespoke celebrations that would require their exclusive creative and management services, and it was imperative that their creative team were able to not only translate their design vision but also that their individual cultures were recognised and celebrated throughout both their traditional and classic wedding celebrations.
Known for their keen attention to detail and handcrafted celebrations, the Wedding Concepts creative team applied a contemporary touch to the traditional design elements for the first celebration, and brought together brilliant Swazi patterns, vibrant colour, and high fashion to give this wedding a modern Afro-chic twist! Sarah set the scene with her stunning Swazi wedding dress by South African couturier Tuelo Nguyuza – perfectly complemented with locally made, bold neckpieces & accessories. The fashionable bride then later changed into her second couture dress – an exquisite Gert-Johan Coetzee crimson floor-length gown!
