Most perfect day any bride could wish for. Skies opened up blue perfectly over the ocean view few minutes before the day got started as it was pouring with rain. From start to finish everything was filled with love and much laughter. Bride has a full and happy heart.
Wedding was a very simple and relaxed boho feel. Dress plain and simple yet very elegant. Hair was an updo messy boho look with a simple flower crown to bring in all the greenery. Makeup was perfectly done by Blush Makeup Candice.
Shoes, bride wore nude Steve Madden heels and groom wore no shoes.
We made a weekend of our wedding for family and friends to relax and enjoy a weekend of love and fun.
Wedding was held at "The Laughing Forest" in Elysium on the South Coast.
Nothing to fuss about as I was a very relaxed bride. Beauty regime was to just stay on my healthy clean eating and everyday early 10km run.
Decor was simple. We had a Devine macrame back drop over the view of the ocean for the aisle made by Knot Again. Wedding flowers were all greenery, having gorgeous hanging kokadamas over each table and soft ferns and pennygum all done by Rox from bespoke botanicals.
We had 4 greenery hoops hanging above the main table.
Knot Again also made a gorgeous macrame bouquet wrap around for the stem of the bouquet.
Lighting was soft fairy lights draped on ceiling with soft candles on each table.
We had a wooden arch draped with greenery for the photo booth.
Our wedding was mainly around the two of us and our 2 kids, our son the "Best man" and our daughter "the maid of honor". But we did have our bridal teams, the ladies wore soft nudes and denim shoes and the best man wore white shirt, khaki pants wotj denim bow tie, grooms men wore denim shorts and khaki pants, all men rolled up pants and had casual slops on:
Bridesmaids were able to select their dresses that they felt most comfortable in. Bridesmaids chose a soft natural tan/pink to go with the natural flow.
Diane Visser from the South Coast did an amazing service that fit the day perfectly together.
We both have a child from a previous marriage whom stood at the alter with us. We decided on a rope knot to tie us all together with both children helping us pull the knot together.
We had Lauren Setterberg doing our photography whom was incredible on helping us feel so comfortable and allowed us be ourselves and captured the love so effortlessly.
Videography was the multitalented Abigail Thompson whom also was our live singer at our wedding, she is absolutely gorgeous and soooo talented.
I did the wedding all on my own!
It was a weekend wedding and so my transport to the asile were my "Steve Madden heels"
Wedding cake was toooooo delicious made by Rachelle Smith. Gorgeous naked look 2 tier vanilla white moist cake with Lindt drizzle.
Food was prepared by the venue we had lamb on spit with lamb, chicken and veg potjies.
Shindig did most of my printing with my own designs. Soft thin writing on plain natural board.
We had two live bands Chico Muya and Abi Thompson.
We also had a great Dj, Dj Riaan.
Live bands were incredible as all guest were brought together outside around the pool and night ski.
