The inspiration for my wedding was nature and I envisaged a botanical theme for the décor and all aspects of the wedding. My focus was also very much on family and I tried to connect these two elements as much as possible throughout the ceremony, décor and finer details. Our colour palette was shades of purple and this was complemented by the greenery of our botanical theme. I envisaged the inside of our venue looking like a beautiful green house. Our table décor was wild and unique. My 17 year old cousin baked our cake and it was decorated simply with pansies, while my great grandmother’s serving knife was used to cut our cake. My mom and I spent hours hand making all our stationary and wedding décor and for me it is those memories which add a special element to our wedding day.
