Friendly Family Farm wedding

Last weekend we hosted a big family (ours, the bride Rouxlene is Cornelia’s cousin, sister to “the cousin who does the PR and marketing”) wedding on Kalmoesfontein. Although the wind blew us (and the bride’s veil) away during the ceremony and into the night it was a very cosy, love filled, fun affair. 

 “The Chapel” in front of the cellar. 
 “The cousin who does the PR and marketing, plans weddings and plays bridesmaid” with the proud father and blushing bride and 9 of the 10 blond kids who preceded them down the isle. Samuel and Ana also made the cut along with their cousins Richard, Jan-Hendrik and Hardy (who is the missing 1).

 The makeshift wind shelter – Swartland style. 
 The first dance.
Ouma Joey, the only grandparent in attendance, made all of the flags from old telephone books, to fit with the recycled, eco-friendly theme. 
 Simple, not so windproof, table settings of white and glass. 

 Every seat had a unique quote on love and marriage (in the glasses cause the original plan was even less windproof) 



The dance floor might have just been the parking lot in front of Adi’s office, but that didn’t stop the guests (everyone, from the vet bride’s farming friends to the professional MMA fighter groom’s cage fighting buddies) from busting a move and dancing into the night. We think we have Secateurs (and Oom Jan’s Paradyskloof wines) to thank for that. Remember the Secateurs warrior!?

We hope Rouxlene and Paul will have a long and loving life together and we thank them for sharing their special day with us.
