Carien loves the color green, so she felt it was a no-brainer for her to wear green shoes on her wedding day. As Phil is 6”7, she knew she’d need to wear a heel. She found the perfect green shoes from Nine West, complete with a 4.5 inch heel! As they weren’t available in South Africa, she had them delivered to a friend in the States, then sent on to her.
She was also inspired by the film Bride Wars, so she tracked down some blue flower hairpins like the girls wear in the film. The bride also had a beautiful brooch that once belonged to her late Gran attached to her wedding flowers, so she could be with her on her special day.
