Stacey-Anne Maritz

Married on Oct 25, 2014

We had one rule for our wedding - no tradition! It was the basis for everything from the decor to the ceremony, food and dress. I knew I wanted a beach wedding but nothing commercial so we started on the west coast, all the small fishing towns. A client of mine urged us to look at Bosduifklip in Lamberts Bay and the minute we walked in we both knew it was our place. Its just a huge rock in the middle of no-where with a spectacular rustic view and tree stumps for tables and chairs. They offered a typical west coast menu including mussels, prawns, paella, tomato, lamb and waterblommetjie bredies, home-made konfyt and bread, souskleitjies for desert and about 10 more courses. Spectacular! Our ceremony was on a beach with benches for seats and hanging sunflowers. We vowed to keep decor to a minimum so we didn't detract from the setting - a combination of sunflowers, rock roses and driftwood were perfect. Music is important t us so a guitarist played "Is this Love" by Bob Marley as I walked down the isle, and my dad played "I can't help falling in love with you" for our first dance, on the beach! Everyone was invited to be in the photos as we didn't want to disappear for hours to take photos. It resulted in such fun pictures! I created a giant polaroid frame for everyone to take pics in the photobooth and created my own props from cardboard boxes - the result was awesome. We hired a band called Naming James to get the dancefloor going and rocked the night away! And the best part of the day....marrying the man of my dreams.....
