This post is going to look the prettiest yet! Firstly, because our Bruce ‘Flyinghorse’ Geils takes the most spectacular pictures, but also because I’ve finally worked out how to get the pictures the same size within this new ‘blog’ thing. Slowly, but surely, we get the hang of this… I always seem to start an entry with an apology. I seem to do the same with our newsletters! Honestly though, time runs away far too fast and there is so much to say and so many lovely guests to take care of, so once again, apologies for the delay in telling you all about this very special rainy October country wedding…
Lizelle & Kevin are a dream couple. They are gorgeous, uncomplicated, easy-going and we clicked with them immediately. They absolutely LOVED Wander’s food especially his homemade chocolate ice-cream. So much so, that Kevin ate it for breakfast more than once. Their wedding was HUGELY blessed by the relentless rain. Lizelle & Kevin galoshed (is that a word?) their way through their ceremony which was held at the most spectacular property close to Swellendam called ‘GodsWindow’. Lizelle had visited the farm there as a little girl and had kept it in her heart for her ideal Swellendam country wedding.
Their reception was held in our light and airy conservatory which looked so beautiful. We loved the ‘Candy Bar’ with sweets made themselves, we loved the white balls and fairy lights hanging from the ceiling and we loved the pure colours, succulents with soft roses, but most of all, we loved spending this glorious day with a truly lovely couple. Thank you to Lizell & Kevin for choosing to share it with us!
And then there was the food…
Phyllo cones with roasted aubergine & pistachio in ‘broekie’ lace
Malay spiced prawns with garlic lemon aioli canapé and panfried salmon, creamed leeks and an organic tomato salad as a main
Oh gosh, so many beautiful photos… here are just a few more for prettiness..
