Thinking back to our wedding it wasn’t a type of wedding anybody would’ve expected. We had very little tradition because we wanted the wedding to reflect us as a couple rather than what society had people believe what weddings are like.

 

The day before the wedding, a bunch of family and friends all pitched in to help with our flowers. The tables and hanging bouquets were made up by us and the big floral arrangements and the hand bouquets were designed by Louise, the venue coordinator. During the week leading up to the wedding, our floral supplier phoned us and said they can’t find any ranonkels but can substitute them with peonies, awe shocked we immediately said yes!!

 

We chose simplistic and elegant decor and a very natural colour palette with saturated greens and gold. We decided on candles instead of big floral centrepieces to help contribute to a festive family-style dinner. Our stationery was designed with a minimalists hand and the little details added to the softness of our day.

 

One decor element we LOVED was our table seating chart. We designed it ourselves and with the help and love of our friends we managed to stick the 1.8m x 2.2m pure white, delicate sticker onto a sheet of chocolate colour stained wood. It stood on the front lawn where cocktails were being served during canapés which meant everybody could find their seats easily.

 


Our wedding day started out by me quickly dropping by Roelandi at the bridal suite to give her a gift and to pray for the day, we couldn’t even make it 30 seconds before we both burst out in (happy) tears. After this, I went with the groomsmen and a few friends for breakfast and Roelandi started getting ready for the day.

 

Eventually, I also started getting ready and had my portraits taken with my three best friends who stood by my side throughout the day, we laughed and shared a beer before leaving for the formalities.

 

Right before the ceremony, Roelandi and I had a “first look”. We knew we were too emotional and would’ve cried way too much if we saw each other for the first time in the ceremony. It was awesome doing this, we spent a few minutes just with each other and was able to talk and chat about anything and everything. We also did the majority of our couple shoot in this time, this ensured that we had enough time to enjoy a few drinks with our guests after the ceremony.

 

Our ceremony area was made up beautifully, the venue placed a few bottles of water at the entrance door and made everything look amazing with leftover flowers and greenery. My father-in-law and I built the arch that we got married in front off, it was made out of old grapevines from our own farm. It was a rough but beautiful piece that stood out against the beauty of the bushveld.

 

I think if you ask anybody who was at our wedding what stood out for them, they would all say the exact same thing, the food and the atmosphere. While we were still planning the wedding we wanted it to feel as if we all were at a dinner and we happened to get married. For us that is exactly what it felt like, we were having a beautiful candle lit dinner with our 90 closest friends and family and we just casually slipped in a wedding :D

 

Thank you so so much to each and every family and friend who did so much just to be part of our wedding. We love you!
A simple thank you will not do any justice, but to our service providers- you were amazing! Thank you for always dealing with us with your kind hearts and helping us create this beautiful day!

This is my Great Gran, Ouma Lien. I think she deserves a round of applause for seeing one of her great grandchildren getting married.
It was a privilege having ouma there!
