Paula and Darryl were legally married in Chippenham in May but also decided to have a second wedding for their South African contingent in September. They had a beautiful (yet freezing!) outdoor ceremony officiated by a friend at Dunkeld Country & Equestrian Estate in Dulstroom.
“Our original plan was a wedding theme was bicycles, birds, skulls and succulents”, explained Paula. “Birds and bicycles for Darryl as he’s a cyclist who loves birds, and skulls and succulents for me. I incorporated birds into my dress, I wore beautiful hummingbird earrings and we used birdcages for the centrepieces. I’m a biologist and I love the cycle of life. I didn’t want to have cut flowers – I don’t like them I think it’s freakish to kill these beautiful things and then watch them wither… Skulls are okay though, haha! During the course of planning succulents turned in to air plants.”
