Sneak Peak - Paul & Jenna

So thrilled to share these beautiful sneak peaks from Paul and Jenna’s crazy, fun, beautiful, happy, warm winter’s wedding! Mountains of pretty DIY made with love, a gorgeous bride, handsome groom and festive bridal party, the best wedding speech I have ever heard (by the bride no less!), and a vintage car with a personality all of it’s own. I absolutely loved this wedding! So excited to share the full day with you. Enjoy friends x

Raj & Parrot aka Neil & Tash’s Mexican Day of the Dead Barn Wedding!

I first met the precious soul who is Tash while I was at Netherwood. She was the tiny human with the most gentle and soulful eyes carrying the most enormous amount of equipment I’ve ever seen (she is known for this!) I was blessed to get to work with both Tash and Jax on numerous happy occasions, and come to know and love them both well. You earn Tashy hugs. She doesn’t bestow them easily, but once she has decided you are one of her people, she opens that incredible heart of hers and loves you completely, and forever. Tash is one of the most kind, gentle, generous and quiet souls I have ever known. When I finally met her wonderful Raj (aka Neil), I knew exactly why they were made for one another - kind, funny, gentle and generous, he is perfect for my little Parrot friend.







Being the special humans Raj and Tashy are, there was never going to be anything “ordinary” about their happy day, especially coming from a combined mixture of Polish / Indian / South African / Afrikaans families between the two of them! I absolutely ADORED the colour fest we got to play with for this wedding!

Part 2 coming soon!

Venue: Picadilly Farm
Catering: Paula Mckenzie
Drink: The vodka portion of the bar was proudly sponsored by the Polish contingent.

Dale & Rae’s Wedding Part 2

Part 2 of Dale and Rae’s beautiful wedding day is up today! Gorgeous winter light, pretty flowers and heart warming love. Such a special day for this special couple!

Special mention needs to be made about this bride’s completely chilled grace surrounding her wedding day. This week on the flower market, only half of my flower order was available (one of the occasional quirks of dealing with this beautiful but at times temperamental product). Rae, without even a hint of anxiety or stress, very graciously said that she trusted me to use whatever I thought best in lieu of the missing order, and that she knew it would be pretty anyway. In essence, she was simply happy to be marrying her person and she didn’t need to sweat the small stuff. I went from having a heart sitting in my boots to sheer elation in the course of one phone call. What a wonderful bride! Thank you Rae for being such a delight, and thank you for your beautiful grace!

Enjoy this happy celebration friends! Pretty images by Saysha Baker Photography x

Dale & Rae’s Wedding Part 1

Dale and Rae were married on a crisp winter’s day at Bellwood in the Midlands. Theirs was a day of warm love, happy laughter, friends, family and joy. Their wedding was such a delight to be a part of! It was beautiful to celebrate a day that was at it’s absolute core, simply about the fact that these two special people got to make the most beautiful promise to one another in front of all their favorite people, and that they got to spend the rest of their lives together as husband and wife. Did I cry? Absolutely! It was such a happy day! Look at how radiant Rae’s smile is, and look at how proud Dale is of his wife. Heart warming.

A special mention needs to be made of little Miss Lydia, Rae’s niece. What a show-stealer this gorgeous little soul is! She was working everyone’s hearts during both the ceremony and reception. Too adorable x

Marc & Sam’s Wedding

Sam and Marc has a vision for their day from day one - they wanted their day to be happy, they wanted their day to be full of love, they wanted their day to reflect the two of them, and they wanted all their favorite special people to get to share it with them. Sam’s gentle elegance and excellent organization in the lead up to their day meant that every one was super relaxed the week of their celebration, and they could all just enjoy the experience together. I so loved their focus on celebrating their marriage first and fore most, and enjoying the wedding second. It was such a delight to share this beautiful day with you Sam and Marc! I wish you a life time of happiness and blessings xxx
