MR & MRS JOOSTE |kuthaba bush lodge modimolle limpopo weddingJuly 21, 2014

posted in Real Weddings

This wedding was absolutely beautiful – Kuthaba Bush Lodge in Modimolle/Nylstroom, Limpopo, remains one of my favourite wedding venues with its stunning sunset and bush scenery. This was also our last wedding of the first half of 2014’s wedding season – Liezel and Wicus said their vows on the cliff at Kuthaba on the 24th of May 2014; I’m so glad we were able to wrap up this wedding season with such a creatively inspiring wedding. Their precious day was filled with colourful homemade touches and vintage elements. I adored every part of this wedding and I loved working with this couple.

How did you meet?

Liezel: “We met on a blind date set up by both our employees who were very good friends. They obviously saw potential and felt they needed to play Cupid!”

How did the proposal happen?

Liezel: “Wicus arranged a dinner with family and our closest friends. We were having dessert when the waiters brought champagne to the table. This made me very suspicious since we had nothing to celebrate. All of a sudden Wicus went down on one knee and proposed! I was so shocked, I just kissed him!”

What was your favourite part of your wedding day?

Liezel: “Our wedding day was just perfect so picking my favourite part is very difficult! Walking down the aisle and seeing his face was very special. Also opening the dance floor!”

Wicus: “My favourite part was the entire day in itself. It was exactly how we imagined it would be!”

How would you describe your wedding theme?

Liezel: “Our wedding day was filled with old cameras and suitcases, lace and old newspapers. To add our own special touch we added our favourite colours – turquoise and red! We wanted a relaxed bush wedding where everyone could just enjoy themselves and have fun.”

Do you have any tips/advice for our future brides and grooms?

Liezel: “Planning a wedding can be very stressful. Just relax and take a deep breath! Your wedding day is supposed to revolve around you and your husband. Nothing else matters! Do what you can with what you have and remember to enjoy every moment!”

Is there anything else you would like to add?

Liezel: “I would just like to thank every single person who helped make this day unforgettable. Morné and Nicole for all your hard work. To my mother, thank you for being there when I needed advice, for all your hard work, all the late nights and for being my best friend! To my brother, thank you for making me laugh when things got a little too much! To my amazing husband, thank you for being so patient during the whole planning process. Thank you for making my dreams come true and picking me to grow old with! To Izelle and Gerhard, thank you for making our memories last a lifetime!”

Congratulations Mr & Mrs Jooste – may your life together be just as beautiful as your wedding day was! <3
