Magical Moments

 

As a somewhat non-traditional couple, we decided to have our photographs taken before the ceremony.
- The highlight is the moment he turned around and saw me, the moment was private and very personal. Being able to share the moment between just the two of us. I'll never forget that discussion.

The Honeymoon

 

To a remote wooden cabin in the Knysna forest - Fern Gully

Its dog-friendly, very private and super romantic.

My mom made my dress :)

We each chose a colour (Her: Copper / Him: Dark Blue / Navy) The look and feel were bits and bobs of individual items we both liked and put together.

The Venue

We got married at one of our fav places to have lunch. Wild Clover Brewery in Stellenbosch.

Beautiful Bridesmaids

Everyone got to wear what they wanted to.
Confort and having fun was my top priority.

My Captured Moments

I can not recommend a more professional and fun photographer: Linda Smal
https://www.facebook.com/smallinda/

She captured all the moments I requested, made the shoots so comfortable to just have fun and has such a positive happy attitude. She also has a knack for seeing an opportunity within the current environment and goes for it. I loved every minute of it.

The Wedding Planner

I did everything myself along with the help of friends and family.
On the day the owner of the brewery did a fantastic job in making sure things went according to plan, thank you Karin.

Wedding Transport

Friends and Family really came together in assisting on this one. As we dressed on the venue, i didnt opt for a special car.

Food & Cake

The venue did the food, we wanted to serve our fav meal: Pulled Pork on a homemade Beer Bun with potato wedges and onion rings.

The cake was done by a fabulous artist: Ansia Kohrs

Wedding Stationery

I designed the artwork myself and did everything digitally

The Reception and Entertainment

I did not take dancing lessons and did a side to side shuffle like in my teens as I cannot dance well.

Sound and Lighting was done by: InchBrook Audio Visual
