Boorwater Farm | Bruce & Ilze
A wedding to remember…..
Boorwater Farm is a little gem of a wedding venue about 2km from Hopefield. This was their very first wedding and everyone involved did such an amazing job.
I have known Ilze for about 20yrs now, and met Dirkie & Anneke (Owners of the farm) through her also about 20yrs ago. Ilze immigrated to New Zealand quite a few years ago and in 2014 she met Bruce who is originally from Manchester. We won’t get into all the details about the planning of the wedding because I can’t remember everything as Ilze talks quite a bit and it was just so much information for my little brain to take in at the time, LOL. They decided on Cape Town for their wedding and thats all that matters. Ilze’s best friend, Anneke, has been wanting to make a wedding/event venue on their farm for a while now and here was the perfect opportunity for her. They converted their barn into a reception area and created a ceremony area outside. It is so beautiful and rustic and the landscapes are stunning. Roxanne from Bloom added her touch of colour with all the beautiful flowers around the venue.
Ilze and her bridesmaids got dressed at Miss Girly, a very quirky, lovely guesthouse just down the road from the farm. Ilze’s very talented sister, Charlene Faurie, made her beautiful dress. Ilze you looked beautiful and your bridesmaids looked so lovely too 🙂
It was a beautiful sunny day so the pommies (Groom and Groomsmen) were struggling a bit with the heat and the few miggies BUT when Ilze walked down the aisle all that was forgotten. After all the formalities I was in charge for a bit making them walk all over and through fields, thanks guys for putting up with me and especially my assistant (my hubby) I know he was annoying at times.
The food was amazing, well done to Christine Bester and her team. The cake was delicious, I couldn’t stop eating it!!! My favourite part about the wedding was to sit down around the fires outside and chat to everyone. You have some very special people in your lives and you are both so lucky and Im so glad you found each other.
Thank you Bruce & Ilze for asking me to capture this very special day.
