Eclectic, Sparkly Wedding with Rustic Touches

Eclectic, Sparkly Wedding with Rustic Touches (34)

Ali and Werner’s South African wedding was eclectic but with rustic touches. They mixed and matched everything but planned it all to suit their venue, Black Horse BreweryinĀ Magaliesburg.

“The venue has a farmy feel, but we added some glam with the candelabras and my sequins”, said the bride. “We also wanted it to be really comfy and cosy with fireplaces, comfort food and unlimited craft beer.”

“The inspiration was to have a low stress comfortable day where close friends and family could celebrate with us. That was how every decision was made. If we were working on something and it got too complicated or too expensive, we scrapped it. The initial vision of the day evolved many times in the months leading up to the wedding and we were fine with that.”

Elli and Oli’s wedding was inspired by the letter B (for Bates, their surname) and with a colour palate of soft pinks and peach.

“We bought all the props secondhand, or used things we (and our friends) already had at home such lanterns, fairylights and birdcages”, said Elli. “We had all sorts of things starting with B, from the bridesmaids books to plastic bugs we painted green and put tiny hearts on (lovebugs!) My bridesmaids and one of their boyfriends even helped me decorate a 3 foot tall free-standing B with flowers, as well as folded 400 paper cranes! One of the other bridesmaids created our dog Isabelle’s outfit and she definitely was the cutest one there!”

The bridesmaids all wore pink dresses of their own choosing to match theĀ theme and the whole venue was decked out with plenty of flowers and foliage. “I’m Italian and Oli is English so we also want a bit of a English/ Italian theme. We wanted our wedding to reflect us, so we picked all the things we like and threw them in the mix. Our florist helped with this and we had olive trees and wine baskets filled with herbs on the tables. The venue looked and smelt amazing!”

Kate and Graham had a rustic and boho inspired wedding in South Africa. They spent under Ā£9000 on their dream wedding. “WeĀ really wanted a lot of greenery and everĀ since I was littleĀ have always dreamed of getting married in a forest”, said Kate. “We chose Cranford Country Lodge as our venue to incorporate all of that.”

“Our ceremony was lovely because it was so relaxed and informal”, she continued. “We live in London now and had only flown back to South Africa a week before, so we had never got a chance to chat to our pastor properly. But he surprised us with these lovely metaphors using some rope to symbolise our bond, and it definitely got the crowd laughing and made us feel very relaxed.”

Meg and Craig didn’t wantĀ a big wedding but with the bride having a large Irish family it was slightly inevitable! In the end they agreed a guest list of 85 which was mostly close family and our best friends. They were married at Pangdean Barn, Pyecombe, Sussex.

“I would say the theme was rustic barn setting with a cute and quirky decor that reflected us!” said Meg. “We didn’t want formal or traditional and this was my first wedding to attend that wasn’t in a church! I LOVE Harry Potter and was allowed to have one Harry Potter element in the wedding. It’s better he restrained me really other wise we could have been getting married in Gryffindor robes by Albus Dumbledore. Our tableplan was my nod to Harry Potter. Made by my sister Becky, we named each table after a couple from the books and we sat at Snape and Lily’s table which was written on a page from the chapter the unbreakable vow.”

To reflect both of their backgrounds they had lots of Australian and Canadian details. “We had a board made with the Australian and Canadian flags, rabbits ornaments, and wooden magnets as favours. Our name plates were a Canadian maple leaf with a maple leaf shaped burlap behind it.”

Julie and Bryce’s San Francisco wedding took place at The Log Cabin in Presidio Park. “Tucked behind the Golden Gate Bridge in a giant city park called the Presidio resides a very little known (even to locals) log cabin in the woods”, explained Julie. “Here, we married, figuratively and literally, the idea of our big city love with our absolute happy place, which is Tahoe. The perfect blend of Truckee cabin and city skyline, it was the perfect crossroads of everything we love.”

“Being San Francisco natives (a very rare thing), it was very important that we kept things traditional to our roots while combining our biggest loves and inspirations: travel, design, cookies, family, and our dog.Ā In the spirit of Tahoe, we created a sā€™more bar outside and a fireplace setting in front of the Log Cabinā€™s indoor fireplace. We also didn’t have any cake, we served milk and cookies instead!”
