Die Klipskuur | Natalia & Darryl

3 September, 2012  |  Weddings

The new wedding season started for me on a high with Natalia & Darryl’s beautiful farm wedding. 

Die Klipskuur, Heidelberg, was the perfect location for their rustic farm celebration with lots of DIY details and fabulous fynbos! Natalia & Darryl are the owners of a landscaping company called, Whirlwind Gardens, which I would guess is the main reason why she knew exactly which types of flowers would go well with their theme. Her stunning country bouquet was made out of all kinds of fynbos, jasmine and white proteas – her favourites – and her talented Mom put it all together. I adored her shoes from Call it Spring as well as her dress made by Sally Higgs (who also made all the bridesmaids & flowergirl’s dresses & matching waistcoats and ties for the guys).

The dessert table was something special with everything from toffee apples, macaroons, red velvet cake to heart-decorated milk tarts! They even made the bunting and personalised heart seating tags themselves! It was such a privilege to have been part of your day!
