Kevin and Tina chose autumn to get married – and they say’s it’s the second spring. The leaves truly did create a spectacular backdrop for their wedding and the cosy and intimate Roodezand Venue in Tulbagh.
It’s an incredible time of the year to get married if you love flowers, as the gardens are full of berries, fruit, incredibly coloured foliage and the last flushes of summer flowers like garden roses.
Their wedding colours were inspired by Kevin’s olive green jacket, which they couple combined with navy blue – we suggested bringing in some dramatic reds and then also some cream and coffee colours in the flowers to complement the deeper wedding colours but to add some romance and pretty to the day.
Tina’s dress was so perfectly ‘her’ – made to fit and with lace that she had imported from an Etsy shop in the USA. She was an incredibly laid back bride and so needed a wild, botanically styled bouquet to complement her easy-going manner and her amazing lace dress. It was full of garden roses, foraged foliage and berries, wild creepers and locally farmed lisianthus.
The wedding venue is as laid back in character as the couple, and so suited very low key flowers, with little clusters of blooms and berries on wood rounds and twine covered bottles. And a few more substantial wooden boxes filled with Autumn bounty.
Their wedding was featured on a favourite blog of ours www.southboundbride.com.

Thank you Tina and Kevin, for having us make pretty for your special day – it’s always an honour to be able to participate in such a momentous occasion.
