It’s a pleasure to share this Venda wedding. For a long time, I’ve hoped to receive a Venda wedding submission and today is the day I finally get to share it. I’ve always been fascinated by the Venda culture and its customs. Their colourful attire, their mannerism and respect for their fellow man is admirable.
Rachel and Tshepo celebrated their traditional Tswana and Venda wedding at Ubuntu Kraal. She says she’s not an expert on events but judging from how well she planned, designed and styled her wedding I’d say the opposite. Maybe you should think about going into events Rachel? You’ve done such an awesome job with your wedding. Had you not mentioned it, I would have thought it was a professional job.
I remember when Solange married in 2014, she wore a gorgeous cape wedding dress that seems to inspire brides all over the African aisles. I couldn’t help but think Solange’ cape dress has nothing on Rachel ‘. Hers is embedded with Venda print, I tell you there’s nothing more beautiful than a dress with a bit of print.
“I was looking for a clean refined look, that was simple but elegant,started browsing the Internet looking for different ideas and put I those together. So simple, clean and elegant look was the driving force for the look on the day.”
“We spent most on the venue and food and saved most on the flowers most of the center pieces were by NDM wedding and events and the rest it was a DIY project on the night wedding.
Oh plus it helps to have a good suppliers like my awesome decor guy Rhulani Mabasa who entertained me and my demands, Ubuntu Kraal was very accommodating and awesome and we had the most awesome photographer ever Hanyani Makumbani.”
Advice To Anyone Planning A Wedding
I am not an expert but from my experience, I always knew the overall look and vibe I wanted on my wedding day. I would say you need to have a theme in mind, be it rustic, simple etc which you can build your whole wedding around helps. Mine was simple and clean and giving attention to detail.
