Travelling all the way from Canada to celebrate their wedding on home ground.  I loved everything about this colourful wedding.  Rulisha and Gabe were just so divinely made for each other and their festive celebration was a reflection of the happiness they wanted everyone to experience.

Being the private couple they are they have requested to not showcase all the photo’s of their special day; I have however been granted the privilege to share the following with you.

For a little over twelve months we spent constructing, planning and building a mix of Hindu inspired colour with a fusion of South African flair.  The preciseness of Ruli’s way was so in sync to our methodical approach that we were on the same wave length throughout the wedding planning.  Like many bride’s Rulisha wanted to ensure she weighed up all her options before making any decisions.  This allowed us to spread the fun from beginning to end escalating with each new event so as to build the excitement. 11181409_10152877404588123_8191872484353972050_n 11174829_10152877406138123_2989340823826684134_n

The day started with a joyous Hindu celebration set in the garden’s of the beautiful Nooitgedacht Estate.  Heart cut-out’s, pewline petals and dangling petal garlands set the colourful scene.

After a truly sentimental and inviting service, guests were entertained with scrumptious eats, games and a creative photo corner to entice the spontaneity they wished to create.

The flavourful mix continued into reception where long banquet tables stretched the majority of the hall.  To Rulisha and Gabe it was important for all to feel welcome and honoured for their presence by being seated as close as possible to the bridal table.

The highlight of the evening had to be the opening of the dance floor which was done secretly by the bride and groom just moments before we drew a fairy light curtain apart to reveal the deeply-in-love pair.
