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!

MR & MRS ROSS | the moon and sixpence muldersdrift weddingNovember 6, 2012

 I saw Kresha & Warren for the first time at a wedding I was covering earlier this year. They seemed like such a happy couple – needless to say, I was really excited when Kresha phoned me a few months later to discuss her own wedding. I loved their Newtown engagement session (click here to view their engagement session); it was so easy to work with them. Warren wrote an awesome poem about how they met for their engagement session’s blogpost – this cute story of how they met made me even more excited to cover their wedding!

Their wedding was on the 29th of September 2012 at the lovely Moon & Sixpence wedding venue in Muldersdrift, Gauteng. I love how relaxed the atmosphere was and all the laughter that was shared on the day. There were so many emotions during the speeches and so many guests dancing by the end of the night!

Mr & Mrs Ross added some twists to the wedding – their wedding was themed around several characters, mainly cartoon characters, and they even had a lightsaber battle during their first dance!

Here’s what Kresha has to say about their wedding decor:
