Lowveld ‘I Do’: Simple elegance at the Rautenbach wedding

The following service providers ensured that this couple had a day to remember:

Couples name: Steve and Ilse Rautenbach
Date: 19 March 2016
Photographer: Mila Photography
Venue: Cabbage & Rose, Middelburg
Flowers: Cabbage & Rose, Middelburg
Catering: Cabbage & Rose
Makeup: Arina Duvenhage makeup
Hair: Lizca Swart
Dress: Ever After Bridal Wear, Maggie Sottero dress
Theme: Simple elegance
Colour scheme: Dusty pink

For the proposal, Steve took Ilse on holiday to Richards Bay. He bought a pizza and a bottle of wine and they found a quiet spot next to the sea. He then surprised Ilse by going down on one knee, and the rest is history!

Dusty pink was the colour scheme of the day

Ilse says that she was so lucky with dress shopping because she found her dress in the first shop that she walked into

Ilse says that the bicycle wheel with the flowers was one of her most favourite features of the chapel

The bride wanted her wedding to be simple, but elegant and that is exactly what she got

Cabbage and Rose provided a “plaas kombuis” meal that was loved by all

The couple says that their most memorable moment was when they were in the glass chapel and it started to rain, but not too long, and then the sun came out

Ilse and Steve were friends for a while, but both of them were too shy to make a move. One day Steve plucked up the courage to tell Ilse how he felt, and clearly it was worth the wait

Ilse kept her bridal party small with only two bridesmaids and two flower girls

Mila Photography provided for the beautiful wedding photos for this couple’s special day to last forever
