Simone and Greg’s copper and rose gold wedding is the ultimate modern rustic wedding inspiration!The couple kept their wedding’s color palette clean and minimal with ivory, sage green, and tons of metallic accents to complement The Stone Cellar‘s organic and relaxed vibes. Simone’s fresh bridal look was complete with a sweet A-line gown from South African designer Anna Georgina and an incredibly natural flower crown! Page & Holmes Photography expertly captured Simone and Greg’s day with gorgeous images of every single detail.
Simone and Greg
The Stone Cellar, Gauteng, South Africa
It was really important to me to wear a dress from a local South African designer. As soon as I tried on my dress I knew it was the one for me before I even looked in the mirror. The details on the bodice were exceptional and tulle skirt was so much fun to swing around, and to top it off the dress was so comfortable and as light as a feather! I also loved my full length veil that I wore for the ceremony. For the couple photos and reception I wore such a beautiful flower crown.
We spent some time finding some readings that we felt had some good advice and were relevant to our lives together. These were read by the bride’s brother and good friend from Australia. Also, the rug we stood on during the ceremony was our rug from our dining room at home.
The beautiful bridesmaids wore dark grey dresses accessorized with a rose gold belt, geometric bangle and the most amazing flower crowns and bouquets.
I had come across this venue on the internet, so we took a drive out and it was absolutely perfect. We both loved how natural and relaxed The Stone Cellar was.
From the first time we met our photographers at a coffee shop, we hit it off and could not wait to work with them. Our engagement shoot was so much fun, and we were so excited for them to capture our wedding. Kristian and AJ are incredibly talented, they make you feel so relaxed and you spend a lot of time laughing with them. We absolutely loved how the captured every moment perfectly, you can really see the love and emotions of the day in the photos. We really could not have chosen a better team to capture our day!
We still wanted our wedding to be formal enough to capture the sense of occasion but relaxed enough for our guests to have a party, so we had lots of eucalyptus and all decor items were in rose gold and copper. Most our the decor items were also geometric shapes. This look really suited the character of our venue.
We made personalized napkins with each guests name. These where white napkins with each name written in rose gold. They also doubled as the place card.
Shortly after Greg‘s speech he took by the hand and led me to the dance floor, where our band started singing the slow romantic version of 500 miles by Sleeping at Last. This was special as I had heard this song a few years ago and said if we ever got married I would want this song to be a part of our wedding, and he remembered after all that time! Then to top it off, all the male guests at the wedding got up and formed a circle around us and broke out into the faster original version by The Proclaimers. Greg had organised this with all of his friends before the night. I don’t have enough words to explain how amazing and romantic this moment was, it was the best moment of my life!
I imported a pair of wooden clogs from The Netherlands (Greg has Dutch heritage which is he very proud of) and had them decorated by his sister in law with a line from our wedding song and our wedding date.
