Top Billing attends the glamorous polo wedding of Gregg Hammond and Chanelle Sardinha
When model couple Gregg Hammond and Chanelle Sardinha decided to tie the knot it was bound to be a stylish wedding. With a glamorous event at a world class venue that allowed for a polo match, it was definitely one to remember!
Attorney Gregg and aspiring business woman Chanelle have been a power couple for years, and have known each other since high school. Shortly after starting to date Gregg was so sure she was the one, he gave her a promise ring.
When it came time for the proposal Gregg pulled out all the stops, flying his bride to Mauritius where they were serenaded with a piano rendition of Frank Sinatra, and hotel staff spelled out ‘Marry Me’ on a large sign.
Chanelle, who is head of events at a large telecoms brand, is also a top model, Miss SA finalist and World Swimsuit rookie, so it was no surprise that she looked absolutely breathtaking in a form fitting Italian- style gown.
As for Gregg, he lived up to his reputation as former winner of Power Dresser and most Stylish Man of the Year.
The couple put on an amazing event for their 140 guests. The Val de Vie Estate polo field was not just there for decoration, and they put on a full polo match to mark the occasion.
As for the reception, the couple chose to go with a simplistic and elegant look. The chosen colours were white and off-white with touches of gold, crystal and pearls. Chanelle is an events professional who she knew exactly what she wanted, and wedding planner Nick Nicolaou brough the vision to life, complete with stylish poke bowl for canapes.
The guest list was not short of celebrities, and personalities such as Nicky van der Walt, Lee-Ann Liebenberg and Gareth Cliff were on hand to help celebrate.
As for the couple, they plan to travel the world for a few years, and afterwards hope to welcome some little Hammonds to the family!
