We are super excited to share this gorgeous eastern Free State Wedding of Hanro & Kaila with you.

Hanro and Kaila went on an Island honeymoon to Mauritius! The perfect location for a dream honeymoon.
The Story behind the wedding dress:
I followed Bridal Wardrobe on Instagram. When they posted their new range on Instagram, I immediately showed my mom the photo of my dress and told her that this is the one. We went straight to Bridal Wardrobe in Pretoria, I tried on the dress and just knew that that’s the one. It was my first and only dress.
It only took Hanro nine years to finally pop the question. He planed an amazing surprise picnic in the bush. A lie or two was told to keep it a perfect surprise! After celebrating the excitement of our new journey together, we joined our family for a five-course meal that leads to the perfect ending of a perfect day!
Advice to couples planning their wedding:
Enjoy every bit of the planning! And ladies.. try and let your future husband have a say as well?
Wedding Colours and Decor Inspiration:
Our colors were green and copper with the effect of wood. We had a look at the venue and immediately thought of a rustic theme. Kaila has always been one for “less is more”. She wanted different shades of green leaves instead of a bunch of different colored flowers.
We followed through with the rustic theme from start to finish. Pinterest helped me with a few things as well! To be honest. We wanted minimalistic with a touch of elegance. The staff at Oranje Guest Farm did a fantastic job of making our whole wedding look like something that we dreamed of and more!
A wine farm wedding was always something we wanted. With the effect of mountains surrounding you. Or in the bush itself that gives you a bit of a rustic feeling. When we saw our venue on the website, we immediately fell in love with it. It gives you the best of both! AWe even paid a deposit before visiting the venue and we will do the same thing again!
