Francois & Mari – An Outdoor Affair

If you can’t imagine yourself in a white dress then how about getting hitched in a coloured one? That is exactly what fashion designer Mari Vosloo did when she married husband Francois at the end of last year. What’s more is she made the dress herself!
Mari’s vintage-inspired dress made from mocha-embossed lace is simply gorgeous.Francois and Mari said their I do’s on a sunny summer’s day in Stellenbosch. The couple danced the night away under the stars with their closest family and friends. Charlene Schreuder was there to capture Francois and Mari’s big day.

Tell us your love story. How did you meet and fall in love?


Francois was interested in one of my friends initially, so I tried to get them together. Next thing I knew he was asking me out!

So how did he pop the question?


I was very specific about the engagement ring I wanted, so I knew he was going to ask me. I did not know when or where, so on the 7th of May he took me out on a picnic at the beautiful botanical gardens in Stellenbosh and asked me to marry him.
