We were blessed with amazing people who made our honeymoon a reality! We visited the Eastern Cape in Koffiebaai it was an amazing experience for us! Koffiebaai is a picture perfect destination! It is very peaceful and romantic. We went on a 5km hike to the Mpuzi Cliffs and did cliff jumping. We also went to the most famous Hole in the wall. We took surf lessons and had one amazing time!

My wedding colors was mint, peach and gold. I chose beautiful pastels for my wedding. We had white table cloths with mint flower runners and peach serviets, the chairs had white covers with golden bow ties! Golden underplates with a bit of bling. Centerpieces was tree slices with log candle holders that was specialy made by my father in law. Also I used coffee tins which i sprayed white and added hessian with logs inside, peach flowers in glass flower pots. Table decor was personally done by me my husband and mother. It was so beautiful i am really proud of the end product!
