With over 170 of their closest friends, Josh and Tina tied the knot at the Greek Orthodox Church in Port Elizabeth on 29 December 2011. Their reception followed at the then newly built Ukuphupha Venue in Kragga Kamma Road.
Tina's beautiful fitted grecian style wedding gown, which flaired out at the bottom, with a soft organza single shoulder piece was made by Michelle Dodds. It was finished off with similar brooches on both the front and the back of the dress and also showcased a beautiful long train.
Jeans Hair Dressing Team did an amazing job with both Tina and all her bridesmaids hair and Juanelle from Rare Beauti finished off her look with gorgeous make-up.
The guys hired their suits from Peri's and opted for a simple classic black suit with white shirts and purple ties.
From the beginning Josh and Tina wanted the country feel of hessian paired with purple and lime green and finished off with touches of white. Ukuphupha has beautiful exposed beams, and Tina chose to have her florist, Cathy, hang wreaths made from natural twine with clusters of peach, green and purple flowers from them. Hessian was bought and specially made into round tablecloths which was used for overlays on all the guest tables. Roses, Lisianthus, Succulents and Col Col were all incorporated into the centerpieces and the beautiful favours which was all handmade was placed on the tables for the guests.
Instead of draping the entire hall, sections of drapes were hung from the ceiling and tied with twine, this created a beautiful curtain drop effect. Lots of candelight and fairylights in the roof were used to give artificial lighting, which all added to the romantic feel of the wedding.
Hay Bales partially covered with green and purple fabric were brought in for additional outside seating and complemented the beautiful stoep at the venue which was adorned with wreath hearts and country lanterns.
Duncan Crisp entertained the guest with some great music choices and added some traditional greek music which was loved by all.
A four tiered carrot cake was baked and decorated by Androula Polemitis. She covered the cake in cream cheese icing and finished it off with purple flowers. The topper, the couples initials made from wire was made by the florist Cathy
Josh and Tina bough droewors in bulk, and wrapped two pieces with brown paper and finished it off with purple twine as a gift for the men. They had personalised labels printed for this as well as the jam jars that they filled with jams and covered with different coloured fabrics for the ladies. The other thing the couple did was they asked the florist Cathy to take an old ladder and cover it with moss. They then tied the seating plan to this. Wooden clipboards, on which they stuck the printed numbers and menu's with wooden pegs were used for the table numbers and to indicate the meals.
Rick Moller took some incredible photo's for the couple and managed to capture some beautiful intimate moments. Craig from my World Creations captured it all on film.
