South African Spring Wedding

Photos By: Dearheart Photos

This wedding is absolutely nothing short of relaxed, intimate perfection. Sam and Garth chose to wed each other on a rose farm (have you ever heard of a more perfect venue?), and corralled their family and friends for crafting projects that knocked their big day right out of the park. Dearheart Photos, of course, worked wonders on the images!

From the bride, Sam: We wanted a laid back, beautiful yet not over the top feel for our wedding. We wanted our guests to feel comfortable and to relax and enjoy the day with us. We got married in summer on a rose farm, so I picked up on all the natural colours that surrounded us… white/creams and light pinks with a lot of greenery. There were MANY DIY projects involved. We had a very small budget and produced a wedding we never dreamed we could have. I pulled in many favors and ALL our friends and family to help. We did all the décor, stationery, signs, flowers, music, our band, cake, and garter on our own. It saved us thousands and made the whole project that much more rewarding!

Flower recipe: Seeing as we were on a rose farm, I included some beautiful roses in my arrangements as well as lisianthus, carnations, and more. We also foraged lots of greenery from friends gardens.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Lists, lists and more lists! I did my homework, I got quotes upon quotes so I could get a feel for what things cost. Also make sure you delegate duties for your big day to friends and family, so you can relax and enjoy every minute of getting married.
