Our Wedding Day

my fingers are hovering over the keyboard and i’m just sitting here thinking, how do i begin to describe this day? our wedding was held on a fruit farm about 2 hours from Cape Town, and the weather was cool and overcast: just perfect for us. it was the best day of our lives, and it was indeed the Best Day Ever.

the week leading up to the wedding was a mixed bag of emotions: excitement, nerves, laughs, occasional stress… but most of all a lot of love. our friends and family literally made our wedding day, everyone pulled in to help – be it with the flowers (thanks Amy), the decor, the tables, the cakes, printing menus and name cards and signboards, standing on ladders tying things up so the wind didn’t blow anything away, bringing me hayfever pills at 7am on the morning of the wedding (thanks Jess), making enough coffee that everyone was buzzing (thanks Pete). it meant so much to us that our favourite people were involved, adding their own special touches, and that our wedding was such a team effort.

it was very important to us, from the get go, that everything would be kept very simple with few frills and that the focus of the day would be about celebrating with our loved ones. our photographers, Rebecca and Bruce from Love Made Visible, really captured that feeling in their beautiful photos. you can see some more here.

my only advice to anyone planning their wedding: don’t stress the small stuff, and savour every single moment. it goes by SO quickly. people tell you that, but you won’t realise until you’re truly IN it.

NYC

NYC

hello! so we are in NYC and it is amazing. I wasn’t planning on checking in while we’re on our honeymoon (sacrilege) – but I see there have been some technical difficulties with images in the blog posts I scheduled. I’m sorry about that, and unfortunately I do not have my computer with me so it can’t be fixed. that means no new posts until we are back in Cape Town.

I’ll leave you with this pic I took at Top of the Rock until we get back. you can also follow all my updates on Instagram.

Best Day Ever

i thought i had it all figured out. i’d schedule a ton of posts, get married, go on honeymoon and just not look at the internet for 3 weeks or something. of course that did not happen. the wedding weekend took over and i just let go. we got together with our family and friends on a rustic fruit farm about 2 hours away from home, set up the reception (with the help of my amazing bridesmaids) and the rest just unfolded… exceeding every expectation we could have ever had. it was the best day ever.

we are bursting. bursting with happiness and love and just being on a hiiiiigh. an incredible high. if you follow me on instagram you would have seen some pics by now, but here are two more (thanks to our friend Joel). i will share more – and all the details – when we get back from our trip & receive the photos from our amazing photographers. until then we’ll be eating some NYC pizza, because now i don’t have to fit into the dress anymore. welcome back to the family, carbs.

PS: got any NYC recommendations for us? please share in the comments.

Pitchouguina

Pitchouguina is a London based label with Russian origins, by designer Anna Pitchouguina. i love the combination of gold and pale pink and grey, and especially love the detailing on many of these pieces – making them interesting yet wearable.

‘Pitchouguina’ is a label based on emotions. It draws inspiration from everyday moments, everyday people, random words, awkward smiles and all the little things that can so easily go unnoticed. We aim to create wearable garments that will make memories and play a subtle but important part in our daily lives. With Russian roots and a studio in London we let our melancholic dreams inspire our clothing. By our own choice we are a little naïve, and maybe a little obsessed.

These Things No 55.

hello! i am currently in the midst of one of the most exciting (and busiest) times of my life. yesterday the awful rain and hail we’ve been having stopped very suddenly, and we were greeted with snow and SUN  - basically the perfect combination – for my bridal shower. my bridesmaids and family and friends went above and beyond to make me feel so incredibly loved (with some laughs thrown in for good measure). as if that wasn’t enough, it is my birthday today. i am 30! it feels good. especially when you wake up to coconut cake in bed.

lastly, we are getting hitched in less than 2 weeks. this is my last week of work and then i’ll be stepping straight into the spiraling vortex of last minute wedding stuff and thingz… after which we leave for NYC for our honeymoon. so things are going to be a bit erratic around here over the next few weeks. i’m going to come out the other end as a Mrs, which is pretty damn rad. perhaps it’s time for a new blog name? while i ponder that, here’s a These Things.

The smell of Jasmine

been noticing flowers everywhere lately, especially with the wedding around the corner. all i can think about are arrangements and what’s in season and blooms blooms blooms. i’ve started buying flowers whenever i’m in the supermarket, something i’ve never done before. perhaps it’s also because i know that spring is almost on it’s way – even though we won’t have warm weather until well into September. here’s to the smell of jasmine.

this intimate wedding of Katie and Markus photographed by Celine Kim is absolutely exquisite:

the new Stella McCartney lingerie campaign:

designer Kelsey Genna has just launched her wedding site The Flower Bride, which is overflowing with blooms:

These Things No.54

HELLO! you may have noticed that it was a bit quiet around here since last week. we went away on Thursday morning to my parent’s holiday house for the long weekend (friday was women’s day) and i took my trusty internet dongle thing along hoping to get some blogging done, but of course there was no reception seaside. so there i sat, with nothing to occupy me with but my kindle. and it was GLORIOUS. i read JK Rowling aka Robert Gailbrath’s sleuth novel Cuckoo’s Calling, which is a nice & easy, breezy, engrossing bit of mystery storytelling – i highly recommend it. haven’t actually read a book cover to cover in one sitting since December holidays, so it was really rad to be forced to take a break from the internet & tv for a change.

so here you are, a catch up for both you and me: These Things No.54.
