The Venue

We got married at the most beautiful venue between Addo and Kirkwood, Eastern Cape. Shamrock Chapel and Belle Vue Function Hall is an amazing place situated at the top of the hill in Addo with amazing views of the valley. It was the perfect place to share our vows with our loved ones.
Most of our guests stayed the night. We supplied a list of the accommodation options in the area on our invitation. There are some amazing places to stay in Addo, it is stunning there!

Beautiful Bridesmaids

The very talented Kelly Dillon from KMD in Port Elizabeth made my dress as well as my bridesmaids' dresses. They were a dusty blue colour and the girls looked so elegant fitting in with the colour scheme for the occasion.

The Wedding Planner

We planned everything ourselves along with the help from our wonderful family and friends. I had been planning the day since before we were even engaged and we just knew exactly what we wanted. It was incredible to see our vision come to life. Everything was exactly what we hoped it would be.

Wedding Transport

In trying to keep everything as simple as we could, we asked my uncle to drive me to the chapel in his Amarok :D We drove back after the wedding in a very "decorated" polo filled with rice, left over dessert and baby powder...compliments from the groomsmen!

Wedding Stationery

My very talented younger sister helped me design and print all the stationery used on the day. I couldn't have asked for anything more special to have had her contribute to the wedding in this way, everything looked so beautiful.
