South African Farm Wedding: Katrien + Marinus

Categories   Real Weddings

Such a pretty, truly rustic South African wedding for you all this morning. Love the dry, dusty, truly South African landscape as a backdrop for such a crafty, thoughtful celebration. As you’ll see, Katrien is (as her photog dubbed her), a DIY goddess.

She and her mom created so many pretty and quirky details for the wedding – from the woollen sheep on each plate, two kinds of pretty bunting, and all the decor on the tables, to the men’s fabric boutonnieres and the flower in Katrien’s hair, to…wait for it…Katrien’s own shoes! We didn’t even know you could make your own shoes.

So pretty! Congrats K+M! And thanks so much for sharing, Rebecca and Bruce!

Such a gorgeous wedding! One of my favourite "real weddings" ever posted on 100 Layer Cake. I love the colourful details on the bride – pink flower and turquoise bracelet. Also love the touches of South African charm and pops of rustic colour throughout. Just lovely!
