Our wedding day was absolutely perfect! We always wanted an initimate beach wedding filled with plenty laughs, happiness, love and family and that’s exactly what we had! The day started off overcast which did not get us down as thankfully it was not raining, but as I walked down to the ceremony with my parents, it’s almost as if God was thrilled with excitement,the clouds left and God gave us beautiful sunshine for the entire day!
We only had 34 pax including kids and I wouldn’t change it at all! All our guests travelled a long way for our wedding weekend! The intimacy is what made our wedding different! We are big on the closeness of family! Every single person present at our wedding day formed part of our entourage! We took all our photographs on the stunning beach of Cape St Francis and had the tallest masonry tower on the South African Coast, Seal Point Lighthouse, in the background! Magnificent! Our Recepetion was at Nautilius Beach House, stunning venue with picture perfect scenery! All our service providers played a huge role in our amazing day -Wim our wedding officer, Jean from Cape St Francis Resort and Cherie Theron for our photos. They’re all great and would highly recommend them! Along with our family, all our decor was custom made just for us and all the shells used were hand picked from the beach! I made our delicious wedding cake which was vanilla with caramel and white chocolate ganache. There was not a single piece left! The calamari starters fresh from the ocean were divine followed by a hearty spit buffet! All our guests had lunch and dinner! Our family bonded and became one and my husband&I had the greatest day of our lives! Everything we could’ve dreamed for and more! A wedding doesn’t need to be expensive, it’s about family and the love that 2people have for one another and that is what makes it just PERFECT!
We live in such a beautiful country and decided to spend our honeymoon in the beautiful village of St Francis! We went on a fishing trip into the St Francis Bay, did a wonderful cruise on the Canals with our 2 Scottie’s, and spent the most wonderful time together on the stunning beach and authentic village!
I went for a very natural look given the person I am! My dress was something that I had thought of and always wanted, something beautiful that I can wear again! Lizette from Bridal Alchemy made me my stunning dress. It was a cocktail dress with a mesh skirt that I could later remove. I wore flat shoes as it was a beach wedding and is by far the most comfortable! My dearest sister all the way from the USA did my natural look hair and make up! My earrings from my mother in law and they were my husbands great granny’s so that was incredibly special!
We got married at Cape St Francis Resort and all our guests stayed the night
Gym gym and more gym! I didn’t change anything else :)
Our decor was all hand and custom made by us and our family members! We had glass jars( purity jars and coffee jars decorated), cockle shells with succulents, hand made wooden boats, handmade unity cross, handpicked baby shells with St Francis sea sand, hessian overlay, hand made wooden crosses,hearts,fish. A Hand made Mr &Mrs Warrington sign board made with baby shells! All our decor was so special! We made custom jenga blocks that each guest could write a special message for us to keep! Encourage each other and build each other up!
