Chirese and Jannie had a fully DIY wedding at a game lodge in the heart of the Waterberg Mountains in South Africa. Their theme was bohemian and creative with a hit of geekiness thrown in for good measure.
“We chose to do a lot of the planning ourselves, by calling upon our family and friends to help out where needed”, began the bride. “Pinterest and blogs were a saving grace for us as we would easily share ideas with everyone involved. We got married at Shumba’s Rest Game Lodge in the lakeside chapel overlooking the sunset of the African bushveld. Our reception was at the main thatch roof hall at the lodge.”
“The aim was never to break away from the traditional wedding in the formal sense of the word”, she continued. “We just chose to combine the things we love as a couple and as individuals, such as his love of all things geeky and my love of all things funky! We both love Game of Thrones and Vikings and movies like Avengers so these were the inspiration for both of our hair styles!”
