Real wedding: The simple life with Kristin & Nicky

By  |  0 Comments

Kristin Breytenbach and Nicky Rossouw roped in their families for a modest-meets-rustic wedding in the heart of the Cape Winelands.

THE VENUE

Winery Road Forest was a dream come true – unpretentious yet lovely and enchanting. I’d always wanted to get married in a forest and Winery’s Morne and Lize made our day special and easy.

THE THEME

There was no theme, but the venue and day were filled with things we love in a sort of mismatched rustic and enchanted way.

THE DRESS

Sharon Burrows is highly creative and worked tirelessly to accommodate all the features I envisioned for my bridal look.

THE DECOR

This was definitely a family effort. We hired a few props, such aschalkboards to write quotes on, from My Pretty Vintage, but the whole family pitched in, as did our friends. Sewing 560 bunting flags was no joke.

THE FOOD

Chef Martin De Cock of Diemersdal Farm Eatery was amazingly imaginative with our budget and informal tapas-style menu. He and his team created small fine-dining magic.

THE DETAILS

We roped everyone in on other small details of the day too: I loved making my own crown, Nicky’s mom made my earrings and bracelet and, together with his aunt, created my wild bouquet too. One of my bridesmaids even sewed my garter that morning (one of the ‘small’ things I almost forgot on the day).

THE FIRST DANCE

For King And Country has long been one of my musically talented husband’s favourite bands – and when we heard ‘This Is Love’, we just knew!
