This is the story of Juan & Roxanne Van Der Merwe!
I flew down to my home town of Port Elizabeth at the beginning of November to capture this amazing event! The attention to detail that Roxanne and her mom, Linda Dix-Peek, gave to the day were just wonderful. The theme of the day “Our Story”, was based on Roxy’s favourite quote: “Every love story is beautiful, but ours is my favourite”. The concept was pulled through to a story book design invite, books as decor, notebook favours and a board of family photos featuring all the married couples on their wedding day. The DIY projects were incredible, from cut-out letters on the staircase to personalised place mats, glitter matchboxes to light up the sparklers for the first dance and a very cool cardboard man to pop used disposable cameras into. But you have to see it for yourself…
This wedding was very dear to me as Roxy is my cousin and it was a family celebration! I wish you and Juan all the happiness in the world!
