Married on Oct 17, 2015 in Western Cape

My beautiful wedding day took place on the 17th of October 2015 and because our wedding ceremony was an outdoor one I had prayed all week for a sunny day ( As I'm sure most brides can relate ;) And boy were we blessed with the most perfectly beautiful summer day!

Our wedding ceremony and reception took place at the incredible 12 Apostles hotel with its breathtaking view of the 12 apostles mountain range and Atlantic sea. It was a small wedding with our closest friends and family there to celebrate the day with us. Both my husband and I love Japanese culture and design and we opted for an oriental inspired theme, which was perfectly captured by the incredibly talented wedding vendors we chose. My 3 beautiful bridesmaids wore black Kimono inspired dresses finished off with obi belts created in Japanese inspired fabric. My breathtaking cascading bouquet and floral decor and was designed by Lol’s flowers and our beautiful cake by Wade’s cakes. For guest entertainment we decided to hire the fantastically fun Martinus Van Tee for caricatures which was a huge hit! The jazzy soundtrack to our reception featured the jazz band Breakfast Included.

Our photographer, Kaitlyn de Villiers captured the day in images that look like they were made in my dreams. It was truly a magical day filled with our all our our favorite things; family, friends, blessings and love.
