MR & MRS OLIVIER | river place centurion weddingNovember 26, 2012

posted in Real Weddings

On the 6th of October 2012, as I arrived at River Place Country Estate in Centurion, I was welcomed by bright colours and wild flowers and I just knew this was going to be a fantastic wedding to be a part of!
Meagan and Brink put so much thought into every detail of their wedding – from the wedding cake decorated by Meagan’s father, hand-weaved flower petal baskets and even homemade beer at the reception! There were bottles filled with orange, purple and yellow flowers on the steps leading toward their chosen reception venue, Al Fiume Restaurant at River Place Country Estate, and the restaurant was decorated with bright coloured prayer flags with beautiful flowers and candles used as centre pieces.

Meagan and Brink looked amazing in their wedding attire and I love the boutonnieres made with colourful ribbons that were handed out to all the guests. I’m not even going to go into detail regarding Meagan’s hair, make-up and dress, but let’s just say the make-up artists, dressmaker and hair stylist did a fantastic job! Hands down, my favourite part of this wedding was the African Marigold flowers in the bride’s hair – it just looks so lovely in all the photographs!

Brink and Meagan met through a mutual friend. In his own words:

“I saw her and fell in love! She had space boots on, and boy, do I love space boots!”

He proposed to Meagan whilst they were having drinks on the lawn at Mount Grace Hotel in Magaliesburg.

Congratulations to Mr & Mrs Olivier! If a wedding is in any way an indication of what a marriage will be like, these two will definitely have a very happy, joyous and remarkable life together!
