Dear South Africa, you have the most wonderful weddings, Love Kat.
Seriously… seriously… Look at these guys!
Matt & Sarah were married at Rain Farm Game & Lodge. The ceremony was held by the picturesque infinity pool with the reception inside, in the venue’s ‘boma’, an enclosure traditionally used for livestock. To decorate the space the couple hung a Swarovski crystal chandelier. The table settings were simple and elegant. “We hung a 3 metre long Swarovski crystal chandelier over an elevated central fire”, explained Sarah. “Instead of flowers I chose to decorate each table with over 40 pillar candles, some were floating in water, as a contrast to the fire theme. Each candle was set in a unique clear glass vessel. Some as tall as 40 cm down to small votives. I was inspired by the alter in a cathedral. I chose fire and candle light to be the focal point of the wedding to create drama and almost a gothic type of feel. This is why I decided to do the bridesmaid’s gowns and neck pieces in metallic bronze as it carried the heat and fire and element through. There was no colour, just the warm glow of candles against a white / clear contrast.”
