Wedding Cake Toppers


Far from the cookie cutter classics of yesteryear are these wedding cake toppers designed and created by Durban’s Christi Pretorius. Each couple is crafted and created from wooden dowel sticks and careful attention is paid to their defining traits, as to replicate them in their wooden selves. Christi works with photos of the couple and captures their likeness, from wearing glasses to the height difference between husband and wife to be. Even the dress details and accessory colours are painstakingly added for a dapper edge. Ideal as a quirky and individual wedding touch or as a gift for impending nuptials the cake topper couples add a fun and sweet touch. The custom couples sell for R300 and you can count on a great deal of love and care going into each piece of handiwork. Perfect for capturing your happily ever after moment! Christi sends her custom creations around the country. Contact her via email on christi.coetzee@gmail.com or call her on 084-552-9151.
