Glamorous Floral Wedding at Groenrivier by Michelle du Toit

I know some of you brides don’t consider yourselves ‘flower people’, and that’s just fine – a wedding should be all about your personal tastes after all. But for me, beautiful blooms are a must-have. Seeing gorgeous florals just makes me so darn happy, and really adds a particular magic to any wedding design. Today’s […]

Candlelight Cellar Wedding at Groenrivier by Riekert Cloete {Karli & Divan}

I know photographers are going to hate me for saying this (because to be fair, they are a nightmare to photograph), but candlelight ceremonies like the one in today’s sweet DIY farm-style wedding are just dreamy! And even more so in a wine cellar (after all, what good thing does NOT come out of a […]

Coral & Mint Groenrivier Wedding by CB Memories Photography {Vanessa & Andre}

I clearly remember the first time that coral and mint entered my colour vocabulary, because not only did I love the cool combo, but every time I used the colours in an inspiration board, I’d get dozens of likes and shares.

It’s the PERFECT balance between laid back, vintagey farm cool and stylish sophistication; I die over the little details every time I look at them. The stationery is, quite simply, amazing. Playful […]

Best of 2015: Groomswear

Afternoon, lovelies! This morning was all about the ladies, as we rounded up our favourite wedding dresses, but now it’s the boys’ turn – and what a stylish lot the boys have been this year! From formal to casual and everything in between, and from matching parties to cleverly mismatched groom & groomsmen, it seems […]

Gift Guide: Groomsmen

As I mentioned, I am feeling WAY more Christmassy as December creeps on (or maybe it’s just that it’s been rainy and dark for days in Durban and it feels more Northern Hemispher-ey than usual). But I must admit I am WAY behind on Christmas shopping. If you’re anything like me, you’ll need some ideas, […]

Fresh Ideas for Travel Themed Weddings

Credit: Julian Beattie So I’ve been doing this blog thing for over three years now, and although some posts and ideas disappear into the archives, some keep getting hits again and again. But lately, instead of just feeling pleased (thanks for the love!) I’ve been feeling a tiny bit embarrassed. I started wondering if the […]
