A simple, focused day of love & marriage in a city they adore, made for the best kind of wedding day magic.
Each one of my couples brings their own love story, style and focus into the planning process and ultimately their day…I call this their magic. Each time I figure out this individual type of couple ‘magic’ out I’m humbled, overwhelmed and energized.
Luke and Leigh embodied these feelings completely. Humble, overwhelming (in the best way) with the best kind of energy.
They chose the Boer War Memorial because it was the place they had their first date and is their favorite place in the city. As they stood under the angel of peace with their closest people (some zoo animals and a few random strangers) looking on I totally understood why.
I often do simple decor weddings but here all we did to ‘decorate’ was add a few flower details to the ceremony chairs and created Leigh’s bouquet… and somehow both the Memorial and Their venue space, Sir James van der Merwe, felt full and beautiful (a complete testament to the people there and all that the Memorial and the Sir James bar are)
Leigh was a vision of class and style. With very modern flowers we tied this old world beauty into this urban architectural setting. Clean, simple, stunning.
Luke and Leigh thank you for sharing your love and special brand of magic with me. I feel truly lucky to have met you and experienced it.
