Michelle & Ruan / Goose Hill Bloemfontein / Free State Wedding Photographer

April 16, 2015

Michelle and Ruan have known each other since she was much younger, but never paying one another any attention… as he is her older brother’s best friend! Since he was around often, they got to know each other better, and even though at first is seemed to them a bit of a joke to like each other… love showed up in all the small things, and before they knew what was happening, the two were head over heels for each other.

When I met with Ruan and Michelle, and they described their wedding, they called it “Plain Boere Plaas Troue” and said they wanted it to be easy going, fun, and very relaxed! their Farm theme was pulled into all aspects as well as the relaxed idea. And as everyone entered to the outdoor area where the ceremony was to take place, each couple received a pillow to sit on the hay bales with, which was specially embroidered with cowboy boots, the date and couples own name! And to match, the only requirement for the wedding: that everyone wear jeans and cowboy boots… for the farm feel*
