Jane and Ben were married in South Africa in April. They wanted their wedding to feel natural, beautiful and ‘foresty’. They were inspired by A Midsummer Nights’ Dream and wanted something that resembled a wonderland forest meets a magical fairyland! Since the wedding was in South Africa’s Autumn, they also wanted it to have an autumnal feel. They used lots of dried leaves and autumn colours.
However they actually had no real flowers at the wedding. “I didn’t want any flowers, except for the ones on my dress,” explained Jane. “All the bouquets were made of herbs, which we now have hanging around our house and we used my mum’s old brooches for the bridesmaid’s sashes and on my bouquet – it felt very sentimental and special.”
