South African Wedding by We love Pictures

Well we have just had the most splendid weekend around here... absolutely glorious weather! I'm realising how difficult it's going to be to get work done over the coming months when the weather gods bless us with sunshiny days!! Very very difficult!! I might have to revert to working late at night and then slumbering in the sun during the day!

I have been a big fan of the work that We Love Pictures produce for a long time, so I'm thrilled to be featuring their work on the blog today. This wedding at Beloftebos - which looks like such a fabulous venue - was such a fun family affair and luckily for us, the lovely couple have shared some of their details with us. You can see more of the wedding in {MAG}rouge here.

Jane & Jon spent a lot of time giving their attention to all the parts that would come together to make up their special day and truly put their stamp on it. Once the venue was found, the theme was born and it all came together from there. As musicians, naturally music played a big part and they ensured there would be lots of good music and plenty of dancing which made for a 'fuuuunn wedding' as Jane described it.

The couple came up with a theme of 'HummingWolf' based on the symbolism of the humming bird and the wolf and incorporated it into everything they did. The logo they designed was woven throughout the details of the day, even down to recording a duet album called HummingWolf which they gave to each of their guests. They then performed the title track from the album at the reception and plan to record a new album every year on their anniversary.

The couple chose Beloftebos as their venue; with it's  magnificent grove of majestic oak trees it offered both beautiful daytime surroundings as well as a dramatic evening ambiance, with lights throughout the trees making for a magical feeling. It offered them a place to have a beautiful, moving ceremony and then move onto a wild and fun evening with plenty of dancing - all without having to transport guests between locations.
