I feel like things have been a little muted around here recently, and while I adore a wedding in classic white or soft neutrals, it’s always a pleasure to have colour wash across my computer screen and warm my wedding-loving heart. Inspired by the colours of a country sunset, this bright and beautiful farm wedding does just that. Liree and Willie (who met as housemates – adorable!) took on a challenge when they picked a venue that needed everything brought in, but the result was a celebration that was exactly as they’d envisioned – a “proper fun farm get-together”. Mingling sophisticated touches like Liree’s gorgeous lace gown and glamorous gold elements with relaxed spit braai catering and ‘just picked’ flowers, they pulled off the perfect mix of laid back and luxe, and the fab Christine Le Roux was there to capture it all in these pictures.
Since we’re spending the month talking about natural beauty, is there anything lovelier than a tulip? I think it must be one of the most elegant creatures in the garden – clean lines, pure colour, and the feel of summer coming.

Chic, contemporary, but unfussy. That’s just what we have today, in this beautiful wedding by Christine le Roux.

Let’s take a little peek, shall we?Read More
