“Our flowers were eucalyptus and there were a few white roses and gyp our table.
The décor was very plain. We only had fairy lights, candles and some eucalyptus against
the corrugated iron. We made wooden underplates and lanterns. Everything
complimented each other and it looked very beautiful.
My dress was exquisite. It was an A-line dress with a square top. Part of the top was
see- through and the back was covered in lace with parts that were also see-through.
It was a Sherri Hill dress that I hired from Carmen’s Bridal Boutique in Welkom.
We got married on a farm in a big store. The ceremony was in the garden under open
trees and the reception was in the store. We did most of the décor ourselves and we
had to transport everything that we used out to the farm. We loved all nature
scenes that was available.
Johan Badenhorst from Johnnique in Kroonstad did the catering for the main meal and
the desert. The food was delicious, and it looked very pretty. On our menu were meat,
chicken pie, a potato dish, pumpkin cookies with caramel sous, Greek salad, carrot and
pineapple ring, and watermelon. We had four different desserts that were in small glass
containers: cheesecake, chocolate mousse, peppermint crisp tart, and brownies.
The look was very much of a farm style. There was a lot of raw light wood and it looked
beautiful with the dark green eucalyptus. It was a very comfortable feel yet elegant
because of the simplicity of the wedding. The colors of the wedding were olive green
color (eucalyptus), raw light wood color and a bit of white and silver.”
