Laatson Onthale, Porterville Wedding

In Afrikaans there is a saying; 'Sout van die aarde' meaning that someone is down to earth, good, humble people and that is the first thought which came to mind when I drove home after SP and Pietje's engagement session

They are kind, incredibly loving and have adventurous souls accompanied by a wicked sense of humor; my type of people! For their wedding, they chose a understated venue on a farm on the outskirts of Porterville (SP's family farm's in the area, so it had sentimental value) and they transformed the space into 

a tropical inspired summer celebration (their decor made me SO happy!), very fitting for the heat wave which presented itself on 7 September 2019 (it was 45 degrees in the shade just before the ceremony - Phew!) 

SP and Pietje's relaxed personalities was present in every detail and timing of their wedding day. Guests enjoyed delicious canapés and bottomless G&T's while the sun set followed by dinner, lots of bubbles, laughter and an ice cream station. These two know what is important in life!
