DUNCAN & CASEY PRATT “We honeymooned in the Maldives.” OLDER BROTHERS often have nice friends and that’s how Casey met Duncan. Watching rugby at a friend’s braai was to be the start of their romance. What made you choose iNsingizi Game Lodge & Spa as your venue? We thought it would be nice to be in the bush as we practically live on the beach and the bush is our other love. We wanted something casual and I wanted a potjie area with a boma and bonfire. iNsingizi’s set up was perfect. I loved the way you could use the whole venue outside and inside so it felt like you were really part of the environment. It was the only venue we looked at and we loved it straight away. How long did you have to plan? We got engaged in February and married the following May - so just over a year. Theme/colour scheme? Greys and Blues - a chilled natural theme. How did you choose your bridal party? Mine was easy - I had my three sisters. Duncan had his four surfing buddies. The best part of your wedding day? We’d been together around 13 years so finally getting to say ‘I do’ was amazing. My sister and her husband did a surprise little campfire song for us. And just having a party with all our friends and dancing the night away. Any glitches? The flowers I wanted weren’t available but my florist was amazing and just changed a few things. Also our first song didn’t play so well on the speakers but the rest of the music on the night was perfect. Did your invitation include children? No, but we had our 2 year-old son and a few of his cousins at the ceremony. We asked our friends to get babysitters so that they could let their hair down. Things you would have changed? Honestly nothing - we just wanted a chilled relaxed wedding celebrating with our friends which is exactly what we had.
