Simple, natural weddings always have my heart. Take Kirsty & Kobus’ big day. An adorable couple in gorgeous surroundings, neutral French country decor, a beautiful dress handmade by the bride’s mother, organic floral runners, and friends and family all around. It’s understated and elegant, and oh-so-pretty. Then throw in fun touches like tekkie wedding shoes, groomsmen in shorts and leather bowties, and these lovely images by Louzelle van Dyk, and you have a celebration that’s personal and unique too – the perfect recipe!
There’s just something about the winelands that’s completely and utterly wonderful, isn’t there? I know my heart soars every time I near Stellenbosch, and stopping for lunch or a wine tasting (or two), I feel like I can just breathe in the romance. So no wonder so many SouthBound brides and grooms choose a vineyard setting for their wedding, and today’s couple added their own, utterly dreamy touches to their Molenvliet location. I’m especially enamoured with the flowers by Okasie, from the rose bedecked ceremony arch to hanging arrangements above the tables with tendrils of roses and greenery hanging down, as well as flower-lined tables and favours in tiny terracotta pots. Like a little garden fantasy, right in the middle of a wedding reception. Jilda G was there to take these beautiful pictures.Read More
