Portrait of a Marriage: Kristy & Greg

Which of your wedding pictures has remained your favourite?
It’s still the same one I’ve always loved the most- Greg and I running out of the ceremony while our bridal party cover us in confetti! So special and joyful!

What changes have happened since your wedding?
We welcomed our first child, Lucy Grace, last year in March – exactly one year after our wedding, and I am currently 38 weeks pregnant with our second!

Any marriage advice for SBB readers?
Remember to make each other a priority, it’s so easy to get caught up in the “busy-ness” of life after your wedding – be it with your jobs or with starting your family; it’s easy to forget just how much you mean to each other when you have so many other things demanding your time and energy! But trust me… You will be a much happier wife a few years down the line if you really feel like you are a priority for your husband, so make sure he feels the same way from you!

Real Farm Wedding {Bianca & Chevy}

Oh I do love me a farm wedding. And who could fail to love one as pretty as this? Personalised pinwheel favours, bridesmaids in belted floral dresses, a love letter motif based on the couple’s relationship… not to mention a big, red, Just Married truck. Chevy and Bianca (who get my vote for the couple with the coolest names, by the way) chose to celebrate their marriage at a place important to them – Chevy’s grandmother’s farm near Pietermaritzburg, where he grew up. They were surrounded by family and friends and a sunny afternoon, which signalled the end of a long distance relationship and the beginning of a married one. Their lovely pictures were taken by Thea Cogill of Tink Photography, and are full of colour and life and general down-home goodness that makes me want to pull on a pair of wellies and trek out to the countryside. Yup, farm weddings are the rockingest.Read More
