Oakfield Farm Wedding
An Oakfield Farm Wedding. Starring Warren & Rochelle. I haven’t met them before the wedding, but knew they were very special people the moment we met on their wedding day. Kind, generous and thoughtful are some of the words that come to mind if I think about them. We did the photography and videography at their wedding, it is always nice if our whole team work together.
I asked Rochelle what she want from her wedding photos and the first thing she said was…photos at the stables with the horses. That is the highlight of her life…her 4 horses that she has on their smallholding. Surika and I have been there yesterday to deliver her wedding video, you should see the magnificent horses she has.
Warren & Rochelle, it was so awesome meeting you guys and being your wedding photographer at Oakfield Farm, we are looking forward to spending many more awesome times with you in the future.
I asked Rochelle a couple of questions about her Oakfield Farm Wedding and how they’ve met.
How did you meet?
A friend told me about his friend that he wanted me to meet, and I saw the picture of him on face book, which was oh him in one of his bodybuilding pictures and I said no thank you not for me and a week later we met and have not been apart since
Tell us about the proposal
He took me up to the Kalahari and we rode into the Kalahari on horseback and he proposed on one of the dunes with champagne and the sun set – it was the perfect proposal – me loving horses and he loving the bush
Describe your wedding day, anything specific that you will always remember
Absolutely the best day EVER for a bride’s special day, everything went 1000% to plan, my dad walking me down the aisle and seeing warrens face, and they way he squeezed my hand.
Spending time with my bridesmaid getting ready. Having my mum out here from England
Friends coming from overseas to be with us
Well that is a whole other story, I had it made by peter soldatos, and the Friday 23rd day before the wedding I was at his house waiting to fetch the dress.
I chose it out of a 3 dresses and when Peter saw it he loved it, my fairytale dress
Obviously it would not look exactly like the model had as I am not a 6foot model not as this as she but I loved the dress
Could not have asked for better flowers or arrangements the decor company are super fantastic
Highlight of the wedding
Getting married to my best friend and now calling him my husband
Was there any drama
Yes but prefer not to say, it was the venue through but not going to let that ruin our day and memory
Still to come Hawaii and Las vagas
Tell us about your photographer.
The whole team was amazing….JC was chilled and me hating the camera well the pictures speak for themselves, they were there but not there if you know what I mean.
He has an amazing way with people and the camera
Who did your make-up and hair?
If you want professional call Sam
Any other suppliers that you want to mention?
Magnifique floral art that did the decor and flowers thank you for making my wedding special
The company that did my invites Vera she is amazing too
Peter Soldatos wedding dress designer
Do you have any advice for other brides/grooms-to-be?
I enjoyed every moment and did it all on my own, warren went with me to look at venues and to look at some decor places.
Remember it is YOUR day so don’t let anyone ruin it or do what they want including parents
You cannot do the day over and the people that annoy you cut them out.
Groom’s support your wife to be it makes a big difference
If I could be a wedding planner I would, if you ever need numbers or advice and I can help call J
Save if you are on a budget
What was your inspiration behind your overall wedding decor and colour choices?
Simplicity and as natural as possible which I think I achieved
Other people might not like my taste but then again it was my day!!
I had an idea in my head from when I was little and I got my fairytale wedding
