• Music Themed, Rustic Chic Farm Wedding In South Africa Part 2

    It’s time for Part 2 of Dylan and Gen’s gorgeous wedding!

    (The awesomeness that was Part 1 can be found here.)

    Dylan and Gen had their ceremony and reception at Rockhaven, a rustic, farm venue in Elgin, South Africa, which they adorned with pretty, playful decor such as bunting, teacups, chalkboard, beautiful bird garlands and one seriously amazing LOVE light.

    Oh how I love the wild, moody weather in these beautiful portraits by We Love Pictures. It’s not quite how I imagined South Africa but who cares about grey skies and a little wind when your photos look this good?

    Here’s Gen with a little more about the decor and details from their day:

    4 Every Event helped with a lot of the decor and was key in making our ideas come alive. As we didn’t have a wedding planner, Nadia was amazing in helping me organise our ideas and source things from far away. She had the ‘love bread’ bags made for us and the arrow chalk board signs. A friend wrote out all the signs for us. The vintage teaset and books were also hers.

    We sourced the bride/groom signs for the chairs, the ribbons and bakers twine, Jenga set and sign, the Letter mugs spelling ‘love’, cake stand and silver cake knife was lent to us from our close friends who used it at their wedding. A friend made us the giant wooden Jenga set for lawn games.

    My Pretty Vintage organised the LOVE light for us. I never thought we would be able to find it and Angie said she’d just make it for us! She also provided the letterpress table numbers, the book to hold the rings {A Tale of Two Cities}, some teapots and the turquiose writing table.

    Darling DIY Projects 

    Our family and friends all chipped in to help create:

    ~ Flying paper bird bunting
    ~ moustache/lips for straws
    ~ s’mores guest favours
    ~ stationary
    ~ the groom and groomsmen’s boutonnieres
    ~ the bow tie for our page boy and rosette for flower girl
    ~ sheet music cones for the confetti

    We Love Pictures

    Travis and Maike of We Love Pictures did such an awesome job with the photos we are so happy that more people will get to see them. They really are incredible when it comes to shooting a wedding and creating an incredibly chilled out, fun and supportive atmosphere on the day.

    Wow. Hands up who needs one of those LOVE lights in their life right now?

    Also, isn’t that random leg the best photobooth photo ever?!

    I have to say a great BIG thank you to the newlyweds for taking the time to share the details from their gorgeous wedding ~ all the way from their honeymoon in Bali! Enjoy the rest of your honeymoon you guys and may your days always be filled with love and music!
