Our Weddings - Rikus & Tami

 

From the moment Darryl (Owner of The Field Kitchen) and I met Rikus and Tami we knew that this was going to be an epic wedding with a lot of love, tons of tears (definitely of happiness) and belly aches of laughter!

Their love for each other is clearly apparent in everything they say and do. Tami is an Art Director with immense talent and a hectic job! Rikus is an Engineer who started a new job as we began the wedding planning process. They bought a house and moved before their wedding. Life was hectic for them both throughout the entire planning process, yet there was nothing but gentleness, absolute adoration and love!

Tami and Rikus had a vision of their special day and entrusted us to make it happen. Tami a trained graphic designer created a stunning bespoke wedding website, gorgeous electronic wedding invitations and designed all the very detailed wedding stationery herself! Each symbol created in their bespoke wedding stationery meant something to her and Rikus - from their love of music to their joy of road-tripping together.

Their Bohemian decor vision was inspired by their love of music festivals and the great outdoors and we gave it an interesting twist by combining this with metallic geometrics to create a modern and chic theme more suited to them as a couple.

Rikus and Tami are both avid foodies and they wanted their guests to experience their wedding food in a festive less formal style. The Field Kitchen created a Spanish style feast with meats prepared and served over a hot fire and a range of delicious large sharing vegetable and salad platters served to the tables. There were a number of different courses and a tasty mid-night snack for all the late night revellers!

Pat Busch Mountain Estate provided the perfect venue for their destination wedding in Robertson and guests celebrated with Rikus and Tami from Friday through to Sunday!

Pat Busch offers a wonderful selection of cottages and Africamp Luxury Bushcamps set amidst a beautiful meadow, rolling mountains and striking dams. I may be biased but this is one of my favourite destination wedding venues as besides knowing the owner Stephan and his wife Lindi, their attention to detail, bridal offering and their team are simply fabulous!

We loved every minute of wedding planning with Rikus and Tami (including our numerous and swanky gin drinking meetings at Planet Bar) but most of all, we loved being part of their wedding weekend and getting to meet all their fabulous friends and family.

The love, respect, kindness and generosity between Rikus and Tami and their friends and family is certainly something we will remember forever!

We developed a friendship with Rikus and Tami and look forward to watching their achievements as a couple in the coming years!

Thank you Rikus and Tami for honouring us with the task of planning and managing your incredible and unforgettable wedding celebration.
