Dornier Wine Estate Wedding – Jon & Shireen

By WeddingNo Comments

Dornier Wine Estate Wedding.

Tell us about how you met and the attributes that drew you to each other.

We met at medical school 10 years ago and became good friends. It’s fair to say we had a soft spot for each other right from the beginning!  Over the first couple of years of friendship we became very close sharing our love of adventure, travelling and good food until we both realised we were much more than friends. Jon proposed on a beautiful day at our favourite place near Cape Point.


Why did you choose your venue?

We literally drove around the Stellenbosch and Franschhoek area going into every vineyard and asking about weddings. Dornier was actually the first one we saw and we loved it immediately, nowhere else could beat the scenery with its beautiful mountains, vineyards, gardens and homestead. We had lunch there and the food was amazing.

What was the most memorable moment of the day?

Jon – its corny but for me it was Shireen walking down the aisle, I really didn’t expect to cry but I had tears in my eyes even before Shireen made it down the steps! The first dance was also comes to mind, it was unique….

Shireen – There were so many magical moments, it’s hard to decide. It was very special walking down the aisle with my Mum and seeing in that moment just how much I meant to Jon. The weather was beautiful, the jazz band were amazing and the food was delicious. It was extra special having time to spend with Jon for our couples shoot, it was so fun!

Any advice to other couples still in the planning process? What was the most difficult and what really helped?

Try to enjoy the process!  It will be the most perfect day you can imagine even if some of the tiny details (which will seem like huge details when you’re planning) don’t go like clockwork. You’re marrying the person you love with all your special people around you.

A friend told us to make sure that we are always ‘in the moment’ during the day. Enjoy talking to the person you are with rather than thinking about who you haven’t yet greeted! Take everything in because it goes so fast.

Describe your wedding day in ONE sentence.

The most incredible day, more than we could have ever hoped for!

Dornier Estate Wedding.

There is something about dark clouds that raise people’s spirits and excitement.  Combine this with a wedding day and you will find emotions high, happy and full of anticipation all round.  This was the mood felt at the Dunkley wedding which took place at the beautiful, Dornier Wine Estate in Stellenbosch.  A beautiful venue at the foot of the Stellenbosch mountains, surrounded by vineyards and forests.  The Dunkley’s could not have chosen a more perfect location.

Dornier Estate, Stellenbosch.
Louis & Mareleen.

I am a strong believer that People’s lives intertwine for the right reasons and at the right times to form part of a bigger picture at another point in our lives.
My path crossed with these two beautiful people and I am honestly so blessed to now have made two amazing friends.
Their wedding was perfect from start to finish.  Everything happened as it should have and exactly at the time it should have.  The day’s story took place on the picturesque wine estate, Dornier at the foot of the Stellenbosch Mountains.   Everyone involved in the planning did it with love as all their close friends and family all lent a hand.


How special to have formed part of this day.
