The couple opted for a traditional four tier chocolate fudge wedding cake complete with chocolate cigars and a ganache filling. The culinary masterpiece was made by Christa Schonitz- the girlfriend of Judy-Leigh’s cousin and a silwood pastry chef- at Florentines Coffee Shop in Cape Town. Topped with red roses and silver ‘A’ and ‘J’ initials, the lower tiers were decorated with a dark red satin ribbon.
After emotional speeches, fantastic DJ Craig Hort from Enjoy Productions in Port Elizabeth got guests up on the dance floor before the newlyweds danced their first dance to ‘Here in Your Arms’ by HelloGoodbye.
Judy-Leigh advises future newlyweds to hire a professional videographer as “it is well worth it” and urges brides to consider a quote she found while wedding planning; “A wedding is a party, not a performance. If at the end of the day you are married to the one you love, then everything went perfectly.” (Unknown)
