I feel like we could spend a week looking at this wedding, don’t you agree? So many beautiful and thoughtful design details tucked away that I feel like I find something new to oooh and ahhh over every time I take a peek! The happy couple’s polka dot was whipped together by Kanya Hunt, Leipzig took care of the beautiful mixed flowers, Sebastine Pepler made Christine look even more beautiful than usual, and Cognito Restaurant catered what looks to be delicious eats. Hungry for more? Be sure to check out Christine + Iaan’s wedding video here, and check back later for one more detail from the day!

Describe your wedding cake: Fun and festive. We had a polka dot chocolate covered three-tiered cake. The first layer was berry ganáche, the second chocolate mouse and the third carrot cake.
What was the biggest challenge you had to overcome while planning your wedding? I’ve shot more than 125 weddings and I’ve seen so many different things, I didn’t know what to choose when it came to my “style” and colors. So I really had to decide who Iaan and I were and what would represent our personalities.
What was your most memorable moment about your wedding day? Walking down the aisle, for sure. It was a long aisle and looking at Iaan all the way, was just amazing. Knowing this is forever and my biggest dream come true was an honor and a moment I’ll never forget!
Did you write your own vows? If so, what was your favorite phrase, verse or line? We did write our own vows. I loved this part: “On this special day I give to you my sacred promise to stay by your side as your faithful wife.”
What’s next for you as a couple? What are you looking forward to in the future? We are building our own house this year and very excited about this awesome project!

Today we bring you the wedding of Christine + Iaan, or, as I like to call it, the Freaking Adorable Wedding of Two Freaking Adorable People. Seriously: could they BE any cuter? I think not. The giant proteas that Christine loves so much make a fabulous style statement in this wedding — no big surprise, since Christine is an extremely talented photographer and blogger with a great eye. These two South African lovebirds got married at Kleinevalleij in a gorgeous outdoor ceremony with the bride in a beautiful gown by Lace Blossom and heels by Stuart Weitzman. I’m always interested to see who wedding photographers choose to shoot their own weddings, and think Christine made an amazing choice in Julie Lim! We’ll be back with more soon!

Describe the proposal. Iaan and I traveled to Germany to shoot a wedding and also combined it with a bit of holiday. It was our last day in Münich when he suggested we have an ice cream later in the afternoon before we fly back, as we both LOVE ice cream and found a yummy little store close to our hotel. I didn’t suspect anything. We went to the ice cream store and past us walked a photographer, I recognized his cool gear and showed Iaan, but he quickly changed the topic. I didn’t think much about it. We then bought some ice cream and headed to a little area in the mid of Münich. Meanwhile there were two photographers following us all the way from the hotel and they captured the whole thing! Apart from getting engaged, this was totally AWESOME! We sat on a little bench, had some ice cream and then Iaan pulled out my iPad. He had been working on a slideshow without me even knowing! He showed me the slideshow and straight after he said he wanted to spend the rest of his life with me. We both cried and then it was smiles all the way!
Three adjectives that describe the day are: Stylish, funky and festive.
Our favorite detail of the wedding was: The bunting.
Tell us about finding your wedding dress: I’ve always been in love with Vera Wang. We took a lot of inspiration from her range and a good friend of mine made the dress for me. From the moment I saw the design, I was in love with it! It was a replica of my personality – modern and classic all in the same dress.
Describe your wedding flowers: I had peonies for a bouquet and we had different bunches of flowers on the tables in small vases. The colors were all pink and turquoise.
