David and Nicoline’s South African wedding had a very obvious theme – rainbows! They wanted their day to be colourful, cheerful and fun. “We wanted the day to be special, a day that our guests would always remember and talk about”, the bride said. “We did a lot of things differently but one of the most obvious ones was that there were no girls in the bridal party – we had ‘bridesmates’ instead!”


“The ceremony was very special, our guests were sitting on straw bales and on the grass,. It had a very casual vibe. The officiant gave a beautiful speech and afterwards we planted a tree.”


“The day was just AWESOME from beginning to end. There was so much laughter and everyone spoke about how amazing the wedding was afterwards. The dance floor was under the stars and it was full until the end of the night.”


Most of the decor was homemade. “We made the the hearts, the bunting, the tableplan, and the thank you gifts which were cookies. My mum made the cake and a family friend did the flowers. We had every table as a different colour of the rainbow with different coloured flowers and napkin rings.”


“Seeing every little detail that went into the planning on the day and seeing that all the hard work paid off was the best feeling! It was so worth all the stress and hard work.”
