Karen and Nic’s Wedding at Vrede en Lust

These photos are so full of love, life and colour. So happy that I get to share these with you today. Nic and Karen chose the beautiful Vrede en Lust for their destination wedding. They flew all the way from Bermuda for their special day.

Karen & Nic were very specific about the look they wanted and they made sure that certain items had a personal touch to them. Their rings were engraved with their initials, fabric was hand stitched, wine bottles were engraved with their wedding date and handwritten notes were given. Everything was very special.

The ceremony had a lovely African influence with singers and dancers. Karen really wanted to bring in some sort of African feel and these guys did a phenomenal job! The weather was perfect for an outdoor ceremony. It had bucketed down the day before with rain, so I was super happy that we didn’t have to move everything inside. The sun arrived just in time!

The decor and flowers were gorgeous, the whole venue was transformed, and once lit up at night, it was like the outside had been brought inside. Fairy lights were everywhere! Lindy did a great job capturing this couples fun personality and I know they are very pleased with their beautiful memories. 

The reception was full of fun, dancing and speeches. They thanked everyone name by name and were very grateful that guests had flown in from all corners of the world to celebrate such a special day with them. Their bridal party pulled out all the stops and the bridesmaids even sung a song for them! To make things even more South African, we had the local Engen deliver their famous pies for late night snacks, this was such a treat! Nic and Karen had practiced their first dance a lot, and they got it perfect when Nic swung Karen right off her feet – so this deserves a special high five!

To the happy couple, thank you so much for allowing me to help plan your day. It was a wonderful day. I wish you all the love and happiness in the world!
