How could I not feature this wedding! It is after all my Si-star's!
Yes, a whole lot of rustic, outdoors, natural, wilderness pretty...
Richard and Kaylie are the typical high school sweethearts. Always being the best of friends, their love blossomed and grew into something really special.
Seeing these two as the best of friends as well as the way they love each other is enough to warm anyone's heart.
Kaylie has always been the casual, jeans and takkies, outdoors kind of girl.
A farm girl at heart.
At first coming up with a whole lot of different designs and ideas, eventually the final dress style was decided and the material was chosen.
Kaylie's dress was a real surprise to all her family, friends and loved ones.
Especially when she told her bridal party that she wanted a low back, lace and fine bead work.
Rina Nel delicately put the final product together so well, her handwork and fine detail was beautifully sewn together with love.
Kaylie looked beautiful. Richard would agree, he couldn't keep his eyes off of her.
Wedding Style and Inspiration:
Richard and Kaylie's wedding style came long before the wedding even started being planned.
Before Kaylie and Richard started dating, we had a family joke saying that Kaylie will land up getting married someday in a barn with cowboy boots and her horse in the background, well...
Richard and Kaylie both love the outdoors and wildlife. They drew a lot of inspiration from their natural surroundings, rustic wilderness. There is even some proudly South African inspiration. How cute is the cake display?
East London never really had a very rustic barn wedding venue, and a couple of years ago if a person had said they wanted to get married in a barn; people would think that you were a little bit crazy. Luckily by the time Richard and Kaylie decided to get married, the sweet little venue, Blue Barn, came a long and really took East London by surprise.
Richard and Kaylie both knew right from the beginning that this is, definitely, where they would be saying their "I do's".
Steph from Blue Barn is so accommodating in so many ways and made Richard and Kaylie's dream wedding come true.
