Adore Weddings & Events Celebrating Laughter, Love & Light

Keryn & Byron’s Softly Romantic Wedding

Keryn and Byron’s wedding was a bit of an Adore Family wedding. Keryn has on occasion joined us to create pretty with us as part of the team, and Byron is our very own Jessie’s brother. It is actually because of Ke that Jessie crossed our path and ended up joining the Adore team! The love already ran deep for this special family before a single bloom had touched a vase for their wedding!

Ke and By’s wedding was the epitome of soft romance, and was a flower lover’s dream. Everywhere the eye looked there was an abundance of flowers - my heart overflowed! Getting to love and bless a couple with the work of our hands is always an honour. Getting to do it for an Adore “family member” is an extra joy. By and Ke, we love you both immensely. We wish you a lifetime of gentle love, heartfelt laughter, travel, adventure and warm light. From the bottom of my heart, thank you so choosing us to create for your special day. Bless you and your special families always xxx

Sneak Peak - Zak & Mailin’s Enchanted Flower Filled Zulu / Norwegian Wedding

The first words Mailin ever said to me were “I love that your website is full of flowers, I love flowers so I want you to do our wedding” … best start of a working relationship ever!!! Flowers are what Mailin loves, and flowers are what Mailin had in abundance to celebrate this beautiful day. I absolutely loved being a part of this wedding!!!

Planning a wedding as a bride from Norway is TOUGH, but Zak is by far the most gracious, attentive, generous-hearted groom we’ve worked with to date. He handled the vast majority of liaising and on the ground decision making throughout our time together and it was a pleasure. Zak, we are fans! It has been a privilege to witness just how beautifully these two compliment one another and how graciously they have dealt with the logistical challenges of conducting both their relationship and wedding planning while being based at opposite ends of the world. Their relationship is a testament to the depth of their love, willingness to communicate, and their desire to live life together. I am so happy you get to have the rest of your ever after with one another from now on!

So excited to share the full wedding with you friends, but for now enjoy these beautiful sneak peaks from Vanilla Photography. Have a beautiful day friends xxx

Sneak Peak - Lana & Herman

The first time Lana came to visit me she said “I love flowers and I want a lot of them at our wedding”. I knew right then and there that we were going to get along beautifully, and I was right! It was an absolute pleasure to get to create and make pretty for Lana and Herman’s beautiful wedding day. They are just the sweetest couple, and I am so honoured I got to be a part of their celebration. I’m so happy to share these beautiful images by Kate Martens Photography with you!

Ang & Justin - Gorgeous High Glamour and Love

Oh my goodness, talk about high glamour and sheer beauty! I LOVED dreaming, styling and creating with Ang for her and Justin’s gorgeous wedding day. Not only is this special lady incredibly beautiful, she has a beautiful heart and is an amazing ballet teacher too!

We chose to focus all florals at this wedding on the gorgeous waterside ceremony arch, and in Ang’s bridal party bouquets so that they became true focal points. In the reception, we went skyward; with gorgeous, lush foliage hanging installations over every table, and a river of gold sequin and candle light on the tables themselves. I completely adored the delicious contradiction of reversing the “normal” by having light focused below and focal features above! The results were gorgeous.

Ang and Justin, I wish you both a lifetime of love, happiness, friendship and adventure together. Thank you for choosing me to help bring your vision to life. It’s been a honour! All my love in the world to you both xxx

Nicks & Coops Beautiful Boho Marsarla Wedding

This was a wedding after my own heart! Abundantly rich texture, a marsarla colour palette to play with, and a completely bohemian feel - be still my wildly happy heart! Our brief had me excited from day one! Nicks and Coops were married on the most beautiful Autumn day on the South Coast. Between the gorgeously wild banana trees and the endless Indian Ocean, we have been spoiled for choice with beautiful backdrops for this incredible day. We really are so blessed to get to live in KZN!

A very special thank you to Kate Bain from The Wedding Company SA allowing us to dream and create for this beautiful celebration. Another very big thank you to Lara Rattray for capturing all the beauty so perfectly!

Shaun & Fay

Shaun and Fay are two of the most chilled, in love, and beautiful souls you’ll get to meet. Fay’s gentle boho heart and Shaun’s sense of humour and fun were an integral part of their family and friend filled celebration. As a South African heading back home to get married, I dealt with Fay via email for her entire flower planning process and in the end she gave me free reign to bring her heart’s desires to life … always my favorite way to work! Thank you Fay for trusting me to make pretty for your celebration. It was such an honour to get to be a part of your wedding. Wishing you and Shaun the best life of travels, adventure and love together always!

Julian & Michelle’s African Boho Bush Wedding

Michelle and Julian have been together for years, have two beautiful girls together, have moved countries, moved continents, changed careers and built a life together … and in April they tied the knot! It was such a delight to get to create, dream, and play with Michelle’s South African bohemian bush vision for their day. They had a small, intimate wedding weekend at the beautiful Nambithi Hills with their closest friends and family. I loved how beautiful, laid back and happy the entire day was! They started with a game drive, followed by breakfast with all their guests. What a beautiful way to begin a wedding day! It really set the tone for the remainder of the special celebration; which included a gorgeous outdoor bush ceremony set in the ruins of an old farm house, bridal party pictures in Africa’s wide open spaces, sunset cocktails on Nambithi Hill’s front deck (that view!), an enormous, wildly unstructured bouquet, and an elegant African boho reception. Not to mention endless hand made decor details created especially for the day by Michelle in person. It was a stunner.

A special mention needs to be made about Michelle’s ridiculously GORGEOUS wedding dress, a custom design by Casey Jeanne. It was an absolute show stopper! I still have dress day dreams about it.

Enjoy these beautiful pictures by Jacki Bruniquel friends. More to follow tomorrow! Love & light x

The Language of Flowers - Kerry’s Bouquet

Kerry’s wild and whimsical forest bouquet was a personal favorite, and was named “Gaby’s favorite” on Southbound Bride‘s Best Wedding Bouquets of 2014.



This cascading beauty was created using the following flowers, with these beautiful meanings:

Asparagus Fern - fascination
Blushing Bride - bridal blessing
Dendrobium Orchid - love, beauty, refinement
Jasmine - attachment, sensuality
Spanish Moss - longevity, hardiness

Pierre & Jolene

This is an immensely personal wedding for me. Jo has been one of my boho soul sister friends for over 7 years. We met at the beer tent at a music festival in the mountains, and have been adventuring either together or apart ever since. No matter where our respective adventures take us, we are always in touch. Jo is the kind of friend I won’t see for months (usually because she is floating to exotic places and sharing her light all over the world), but every time we reconnect it is as if we’ve never been apart. The very first time I heard Jo speak of Pierre, there was a sparkle in her voice … I had a feeling this was a very special man. When I met him I knew Jo had found her perfect match, he is even as tall a skinny as she is! I love the way his eyes light up when he looks at her. He is a keeper for sure! I love these two happy hippy travelling adventuring tallies!

Pierre is good friends with my good friend Jacki Bruniquel - isn’t this a crazy small world? Jax got the honour of shooting this wedding, and she did such a grogeous job! A couple of pictures follow below but please go have a look at the full post here, is it well worth the visit.

This was my first experience working at Cairn of Old Kilgobbin and I loved it! Not only is the space absolutely beautiful, but Carl is a pure delight to deal with too. This wedding has me completely sold on a day time celebration, so much so that Chris and I will be following suit for our own wedding in November!

Enjoy the pretty friends. Pierre and Jo, love you guys xxx



























In Jo’s own words:

Sometimes the best plan is to not to really have a plan, well thats how we operate anyway. No order, no seating arrangement, no colour scheme, no fuss & no traditions. All we wanted was to celebrate our love and union with friends and family. Just soaking in the real reason of being together.

And when we reflect, thats is what our wedding day was. Lots of laughter, tears, honesty, feasting, joking, merriment, rolling down hills & dancing in the rain. It was our day, it was us and we did it our way!

We are deeply grateful to all our service providers for just going with the flow with us. We wouldn’t change a thing. And the ever so lovely, dearest and talented Jax… we would only ever pick you!!!

Venue: The Cairn of Old Kilgobbin – Carlene Bronner, info@horseplay.co.za
Carl is the absolute greatest and dearest. We LOVE her! We would go and have a wedding meeting and spend hours chatting about dreams, travels, art, love, horses, relationships, family, life and laughter. We love Kilgobbin. It really is the most special and enchanting place.

Chapel: The Crab Apple Chapel – Helen and Barend, info@crabapple.co.za
Helen and Barend are the sweetest couple and so kind and accommodating. As soon as we walked into the chapel it was a done deal. It really is like something from Lord of the Rings.

Decor: Carlene Bronner from The Cairn of Old Kilgobbin
We told Carl to do whatever she wanted to do with the venue, decor & flowers. We didn’t have a theme, style or colours. We just wanted her to go for it and be free in her creativity. It was perfect. She has an incredible talent and we wouldn’t have changed a thing.

Catering: A Pinch of Salt Catering – Hayley Fyvie, apinchofsaltcatering.kzn@gmail.com / 0722217749
Hayley and team did an amazing job of keeping our family and friend’s bellies full. The food kept coming and it was yummy!

Flowers: Chapel arrangements, bouquets, flower crown. The lovely Carolyn from Adore Weddings
Its beautiful to be able to share a special day with the most special friend. Carolyn you are such a blessing. Everything was perfect and how I imagined it to be. You let me dream of what I wanted and made it happened.

Hair & Make up: Charelle McAllister 079 888 8777 / charelle.mcallister@gmail.com
Charelle is so lovely, warm-hearted, incredibly talented and professional. Totally recommend her, she’s just cool!

Brides Dress: Emma Pallet emmarachaelpallett@gmail.com and Lauren Taylor Lataylor@mrp.com
Having plan A, B & C fail and three weeks to go with no dress, I approached my dear friends Emma & Lauren to see if they could help me out. Thank goodness they said yes! I had a clear picture in my mind of what I wanted and they just got it and they get me. Sometime friends are the best people to ask for help. This was their first creation and a real team effort of figuring it all out. And I’m totally going to wear it again… often

Brides shoes: Given to bride as a gift from a dear friend

Bridesmaids dresses: Each bridesmaid chose their own individual dress. The less planning the better. They each just went with whatever they wanted.

Groom’s Suit: Hilton Weiner and then some shorts to make the groom feel like himself

Priest: Our dear friend Deta Clark

Sneak Peak - The Croxon’s

Nicole and Matt were married at beautiful Glengarry last weekend. The week before her wedding, Nicole contacted me and asked for flowers crowns for her bridesmaids and a flower hair piece for her. I love flower crowns! While I had absolutely nothing else to do with this special day, I couldn’t resist sharing some of the gorgeous sneak peaks posted by the immensely talented Derryn Semple.

I had such a ball doing their wedding! The flower and decor vibe started with the world map, because these two love travelling. The creativity and fun spiraled from there! Throughout the journey of planning this wedding, Sarah grew from a client into a wonderful, appreciated, loved friend. She really does have a beautiful soul!

Working at the Orchards was an absolute pleasure, it immediately became one of my all time favorite venues over this wedding. Belinda and her team are awesome! I also got to work with the lovely Bronny Fourie of Vanilla Photography and my fun and happy friend Laura Halgreen - two of my favorite creatives to collaborate with!

Derryn & Mark’s Beautiful Wedding by CC Rossler

It’s not every day that a sensationally talented wedding photographer gets married … and has no less than FOUR incredibly gifted fellow photographers to shoot her special day! Today I get to share the beauty captured by CC Rossler Photography.

Doing Derryn‘s wedding was a stylist’s dream. Her relaxed style, beautiful heart, kind generosity and down right fabulousness was a joy to be around. I swear it sparkled like pixie dust over everyone involved in her wedding! We literally met for the very first time when she came to visit our studio and discuss her vision for her day (thank you Christy for the referal). She arrived a client and left a friend. We’ve been working together ever since!

The only guidelines she gave me were that she wanted, texture and movement with her flowers, didn’t want roses, loved the relaxed bohemian style and had a budget guideline … other than that I could do whatever I wanted - wheeeeeee!!!!! From the bottom of my heart, thank you Derryn and Mark for choosing me to be a very little part of your amazing day of love! It has been a pure joy to get to know you both. Adventure, blessings, joy, laughter, love and light to you both for the rest of your journey together.

This was such a special day. Enjoy friends x

Jeremy & Kerry’s Boho Forest Wedding - Getting Ready!

Jem and Kerry’s celebration is one of my all time favorite weddings ever. It always helps when you and the bride are both complete boho hippies with a passion for flowers, yay! It also helps when the couple are dear friends, are creatives, love great food, are in the hospitality industry, are getting married in a forest on their home farm (love), and are happy for you to take their brief, and then just do whatever you want to make it happen. What a dream! Jem and Ke, thank you for inviting me to be a part of your pretty day! Thank you for letting me dream and play with all the pretty. And Ke, thank you for letting me make you the biggest, wildest, most enchanted bouquet ever! Blessings, beauty, abundance, adventure and joy to you both, always.

Very little more needs to be said about this gorgeous day other than it was a full celebration of joy, laughter, love and light. I’m going to let the visuals by Katie from Summertown Pictures do the talking instead. Enjoy this beauty friends!!!!! Part two and three to follow … I couldn’t choose so I’m sharing it all x

Sneak Peak - Jeremy & Kerry

This has got to be one of my all time favorite weddings! It was made up of special people, a forest glen straight out of A Mid-Summer Night’s Dream, loads of flowers (especially jasmine), tweed jackets, two character-rich dogs, a harvest table groaning under locally produced deliciousness, a cake table that made my knees weak with delight by just looking at it, live music, an over-sized bouquet packed full of enchantment, and love! I’m smitten with these sneak peaks from Summertown Pictures.

Enjoy friends! can’t wait to share the full wedding with you!

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.
Flowers & Decor: The flowers, décor, lighting and overall pretty stuff was a massive collaboration between Sunshine Adore Weddings, Ash, Woogy, our two amazing families and us (human and me).

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
