Forest-Wedding-South-Africa-Kikitography (33 of 44)

Elegance and glamour may not be the most obvious ways to describe a forest, but Daniella and Nathan’s wedding showcases most beautifully the romantic elements nature has to offer. From her tiered lace dress to her protea-centered bouquet, Daniella’s bridal style perfectly complemented her rustic surroundings. Kikitography captured the dreamy effortlessness of the forest wedding, including the cozy reception hall, which was decorated from floor to ceiling with rustic elements.

The Couple:

Daniella and Nathan

The Wedding:

Florence Guest Farm, Mpumalanga, South Africa

The Inspiration:

The theme of our wedding was one of simplicity with a casual rustic elegance. It involved stripping the wedding bells and whistles in favor of organic inspired decor to match the nostalgic romance of the forest. The rustic wedding chic attire matched the light-hearted fun we wanted on our wedding day.

As if these still images weren’t enough, we’re lucky enough to have the wedding film from Daniella and Nathan’s incredible forest wedding, as captured by Bravo&Thatcher

The Moments:

Our favourite moment was the small dance off we decide to do during the couple photo session after saying our vows. The endless laughter and fun we had completely epitomizes who we are, what memories we wanted to take with us and the reflection of love we share.
