This Couple Brought The Outdoors Inside At Their Natural Whispering Thorns Wedding

April 4, 2024 | justine

Kayla and Daniël opted for a natural theme for their wedding due to their profound love for nature. Despite their preference for an indoor setting, they aimed to capture the essence of the outdoors. This led them to select Junebug vendor and venue Whispering Thorns, a decision that proved to be just right as it aligned perfectly with their vision. Their big day exuded an ethereal and modern vibe, featuring a charming glass venue and chapel, dreamy florals, and timeless attire.

With breathtaking views of the Lowveld grasslands surrounding them, the venue’s contemporary design and indoor-outdoor ambiance provided the ideal backdrop for the festivities. The ceremony unfolded against a stunning panorama of the property, creating a picturesque scene. As guests moved to the lavish reception, they were welcomed by tablescapes adorned with candles and lush arrangements. To add a final touch of elegance, a glittering ceiling installation cast a soft glow over the space, enhancing the romantic atmosphere.

How Nature Inspired Their Whispering Thorns Wedding

We picked a natural theme for our wedding because we love nature. The venue, especially the glass chapel, matched this theme perfectly and made us feel like we were part of the outdoors. We chose Whispering Thorns because we wanted to be indoors while feeling close to nature. The glass chapel was just right for our dream wedding.

Farm-to-Table Wedding Favors That Came From the Family Farm

We chose to give honey in beautiful glass bottles as wedding favors. This idea aligned perfectly with our theme and added a personal touch to our celebration. The honey came from my parents-in-law’s farm, making it even more special. We gathered together to create these lovely favors, which looked beautiful on the tables at the wedding.
