Hi everyone, Fil here. Two weekends ago, I was thrilled to be able to attend the wedding of my dad and step-mom in Albertinia, in the Western Cape. Remember these invites that we designed for them? The wedding was held on the family Ostrich farm and was the perfect back drop for a beautiful vintage country inspired wedding. Beautiful silver vases adorned with local flowers (including our gorgeous national flower, the Protea) were used to decorate wooden tables in palettes of dusky pink and gold. Everything about this day was so perfect - from the hand-sewn cushions (on hay bales!) we sat on during the ceremony, to the hand-crafted wooden cake toppers on a delicious carrot cake (laced with delicious white chocolate truffles). Even the light rain during the ceremony was a perfect blessing to such a special day.
