Our amazing photographer, Mark Engelbrecht has posted some of our wedding photos on his blog and facebook!! 🙂
We should be receiving our photo disk soon.
Here are some of my favourites:
I will be blogging soon about all our wonderful suppliers – Photographer, Videographer, Florist, Venue, Cake, Dress, Shoes…everything!
Our wedding would not have been as beautiful without the help of all these committed and talented people!
It has been a manic past few weeks….I love my blog, so to neglect it for so long has been totally unintentional!
I will be starting my new job soon, so I have been super busy. Brendon is quite busy too with his studies. We hardly have time to just relax together anymore 😦
I have had a few days to finalise the last few wedding tasks….It has not been easy!
I got myself in a tizz last week when trying to decide between vases at the hiring company. Then the sight of flowers at the florist made my brain turn to mush…!!
A vase is a vase right? And flowers aren’t hard to pick right? WRONG.
Today is the day though – I have just confirmed my final order with the hiring company, and I am off to the florist to finalise with them now…
A few weeks ago, after searching for what feels like a year, I found my wedding shoes 🙂 Well, one pair that could be my wedding shoes…
I found them at the Errol Arendz sale. Gorgeous satin champagne coloured sandals!
Then the next day, I was casually walking around in the mall. I went into Truworths, SALE – the poster screamed out at me. And behold, I found teal satin sandals on sale! TEAL, our wedding colour, and on SALE. I bought them. Obviously.
Then one week went by, and I found the most beautiful satin champagne shoes at Aldo. I bought them (well, my husband-to-be paid).
Now I have 3 pairs of wedding shoes 🙂
A few days ago I was on a mission to find teal satin ribbon for the invitations. After 4 hours of driving up and down Cape Town, it seemed like Mission Impossible. Considering that this wasn’t the first time I was looking for this dreaded teal ribbon, I was beginning to lose hope!
Luckily, I managed to find the ribbon at the end of the day (probably at the 30th place I looked at). Teal ribbon is scratched off the list!
All my decor / DIY items have now been hired or bought.
New cupcake samples will be collected tomorrow, and invitations are going out this week!
I don’t think that it was by coincidence that I happened to stumble upon The Rose Cafe in Newlands a few months ago. I knew immediately after walking into the shop that this place would understand what I was looking for!
The vintage pieces and homey decor inside the store confirmed that my Vintage Elegance theme would be a piece of cake for them, and of course all the lovely colourful roses made me swoon!
Before the wedding planning began, I was not into flowers. I could appreciated them, but I wasn’t mad over them. Now I LOVE flowers! When I walk past flower shops or see beautiful bouquets at Woolies, I get excited….Strange!
I can blame the quoting process for this – lots of time spent at the florist – seeing, smelling and touching a variety of flowers was lots of fun!
Initially when I started with my flowers quote, my wedding colours were Salmon and Ivory. Along the way that changed to Teal and Cerise. So there was a lot of up and down and quote changes when it came to my flowers! Thank goodness I found a florist who was able to keep up with my messy brain and indecisive thoughts!
Thank you to Chloe and the owner, Angie! You ladies are really creative geniuses and I can’t wait to see my flowers in April next year! 🙂
