The Flowers

it is now just over 2 months till our wedding. 11 weeks to be exact. i have been thinking about it a lot this month, mostly because there are admin things that have to be sorted out – stuff i haven’t had to give any thought to because they weren’t…

Carolyn Kennedy's dress by Narciso Rodriguez

The Dress

just like many women i’ve always had an idea of what kind of wedding dress i’d want to wear. if at any point in the last decade you had to ask me on the spot i’d probably reference Carolyn Kennedy on her wedding day (her dress was designed by Narciso…

Thoughts on a Wedding

even a budget wedding can add up… and up… and up. generally i know what i want for the wedding – and how to keep costs down – but sometimes i have moments like, “i want ALL the fairy lights in the world! all of them.” so it’s a fine…

Kirsty & Simon

i haven’t been thinking about the wedding much at all lately, partly because it’s 7 months away (actually… not so far away if you think about it), and partly because i’ve been busy with other things, but mostly because i get a bit overwhelmed every time i think about it. so much…

A Wedding at Babylonstoren

weddings at Babylonstoren never fail to wow me. the setting is so spectacular that you don’t need any frills when it comes to decor and the usual wedding jazz (a blessing, really). We Love Pictures recently shared the wedding of Janina & Lean that was held on the grounds of…

Rimi & Jean

i first came across wedding photographer Celine Kim after she photographed Anabela’s wedding (which is just gorgeous you have to see it), so i followed her blog to keep up to date with her work. she recently shared the traditional Indian wedding of her friends Rimi & Jean – which looked…

Cake! Cake! Glorious Cake!

oh no, don’t tell me it’s another wedding related post. to be fair, cakes are delicious and amazing – SO – i hope you don’t mind that this post kind of has to do with the wedding. because the thought of the cakes makes me very excited. if everything goes according to…

Laure de Sagazan

oh well, i guess this was going to happen. you know – the engagement has done funny (and somewhat embarrassing) things to my brain. suddenly there’s a pinterest board involved. it’s secret for now, i don’t wish to spam the whole world with wedding talk. and i actually found the…

Sarah & Jamie by Love Made Visible

there are a number of talented wedding photographer couples in Cape Town whose style of photography i can really get behind – focusing on important moments rather than most of the cheesy schtick that has been perpetuated by the wedding industry. three, namely: Deon & Irene of  Modern Hearts, Travis & Maike of We Love…

Leigh & Brad by Modern Hearts

modern hearts have gone and photographed another beautiful wedding, this time Leigh & Brad’s special day held on a farm in mpumalanga. what an incredibly rad setting – nguni cattle and all (not to mention that dress).

Kelsey Genna

i’ve eagerly been following the making of of Kelsey Genna’s bridal collection on her Instagram account, so was pleased to see that her new website showcasing the entire range launched this morning. and WHAT a collection! you may remember that i blogged about Kelsey last year, so to see how her…

Bona Drag Ceremonial Collection

the Bona Drag Ceremonial Collection is something else. featuring exclusive collaborative pieces by designers like Samantha Pleet (who designed the first amazing dress below), Mara Hoffman (who has never done ready to wear gowns until now) and Bona Drag buyer & stylist Hannah Bartie’s range With Hearts in My Eyes (the…

Romy & Raphael

oh wow, i just had to share the wedding that photographer Hanni of Troistudios shared in the comments of yesterday’s plants post! Romy & Raphael got married at the Botanical Gardens in Berlin – what a perfect setting for such an intimate ceremony. they also had brunch and a reception at two…

Jackie & JFK

since i seem to be on a wedding trip today, i thought it might be cool to share some pics from the wedding of Jackie & JFK in September 1953, which was taken by Life photographer Lisa Larsen. there were 600 guests, they had 14 ushers and 10 bridesmaids and they…
