This was truly a special wedding for me to plan and execute. Kate and Ed are based in Melbourne, Australia and with Ed being from South Africa, they wanted to plan an intimate occasion to celebrate with his local friends and family. We chose Askari Game Lodge as it reflected the bush setting along with spectacular views…
Their Melbourne wedding included a black and white base with touches of elegant maroons and gold and so we included that in the styling of their SA wedding, with elegant black bows and gold lanterns and the beautiful mix of King Proteas and greenery.
The weather was truly spectacular and made for stunning photographs in the forest and with the elephants.
I loved how Kate changed her sleek, elegant wedding dress to include a tulle skirt and sneakers for her wedding reception. The dance floor was alight and the celebrations continued until late into the evening.
What a honour to be trusted with your South African Destination wedding, it was certainly one of the highlights to the start of the 2018 wedding season.
