A Feast For They Eyes: Christine + Wesley’s Hathersage Wedding


Tasteful simplicity, a beautiful dress, gorgeous do-it-oneself particulars:  Only a number of techniques to describe the beautiful Hathersage wedding ceremony of Christine and Wesley held in Somerset-West. We are thrilled to share these photographs captured by the tremendously gifted Taryn Ward.


Tell us a small about how you met?

We at first met when I was in my mid-teenagers by means of mutual close friends. A couple of many years later on we randomly bumped into every other at a neighborhood hang out and had our 1st official date the following evening. That was the starting of our 6 romantic relationship ahead of Wesley proposed.


How did Wesley propose?

‘Wesley took me out on a day journey, 18 August 2012, toKirshtenbosch botanical gardens. Although strolling by way of the gardens I was admiring the beautiful plantation. At a particular quiet, intimate spot I turned around to uncover Wesley on his one knee.  It was best in every way.


How lengthy did the wedding ceremony planning consider?
‘The wedding ceremony preparing took approximately 13 months. We specifically extended it as Wesley’s mother had to program her trip from Canada.’


Had been there any DIY details on the wedding ceremony? Please elaborate on the how-to’s?

Yes, primarily almost everything! To make the wedding as price range friendly as attainable, we decided to do every thing ourselves. It was enjoyable, but really tiresome.  I developed the invitations, the ceremony stationary and even the wedding dress. I had a couple of stamps made to pull through the theme, punched the confetti from old books and recycled glass jars for the ceremony. I had the table numbers and cake topper laser cut.


How did you decide on the theme and/or the colour palette?

Our theme was contemporary rustic with a neutral palette, as it is closest to our private fashion. We consciously made a decision to maintain it minimal and timeless as possible.


Any suggestions for engaged couples?

Preserve point of view of what the occasion is really about: the declaration of your adore and commitment in front of your family members and buddies. Do not be disappointed if every thing does not perform out exactly as planned, your visitors will by no means know! Your diary is your best pal. Attempt not to be influenced by the limitless concepts and inspiration you uncover on your favourite blogs (you will be altering and altering until finally the final 2nd!) Much less is a lot more. Strategy upfront, stay centered, and consider to take pleasure in every single minute.
