Johann & Zara

I have a gorgeous South African wedding to share with you today, courtesy of the lovely Lizelle Lotter. Sadly I don’t understand Afrikaans and so can’t translate some of the wedding details for you. Luckily, the beauty of weddings can transcend the language barrier and I really don’t think it matters that I don’t understand what is written on the aisle runner, I know it will be something lovely and I think it’s a unique idea!


I also love the dresses! The daring dress for the bride with its thigh-high split and those awesome bridesmaid dresses! Love the colour, the style and the tartan fabrics used! The wedding car is cute too with its big bow and of course I adore the light in this last shot…


Awesome images courtesy of Lizelle Lotter

Congrats to Johann & Zara and thanks to Lizelle for allowing me to share this amazing African wedding.

    Oh how beautiful.

  2. I love Lizelle’s work and this wedding is no exception!! Beautiful moments captured with so much love. My first language is actually Afrikaans Debs – love what the blackboard on the stand says: “I will write poetry about your mouth and your body. I will make up songs and sing it to you until you’re asleep”. So romantic! :-)

  3. Thank you so much for the post! Love it!

    Zara, how did you do a chalkboard aisle runner!?

  10. Josie says:

    So cool! The chalkboard aisle is brilliant.

  11. Zara says:

    Hi Amanda, It is black material and I wrote on it with white material paint. I wrote this on my knees, bum in the air :) Be sure to write it on a flat surface and remember to cover the surface used because the paint comes through the material. The text is 1 Corinthians 13… So happy that you like the idea! x

    Hi Zara,

    Ek sien hierdie post is al `n bietjie oud, maar ek het gehoop dat jy dalk vir my kan se watse soort materiaal jy vir die aisle runner gebruik het? LOVE dit!!
