The Honeymoon


We did go on honeymoon and I recommend it to every newly wed. There is just something special about it ,no matter where you go. We went on half an road trip. First stop Oudtshoorn we didnt stay in a romantic or fancy place that night but my husband ensured me that where we were going would make up for it. Enoying all there was to see and do , the open road and my husbands company we drove 610km to Hogsback. And o what a wonderfull little hidden away place this is. Staying in a romantic little cottage at The Edge and this place is exactly as the name states it your cottage is on the edge of a cliff. We stayed there and ventured around for a week in this magical town. On our way back home we traveled along the coast stopping at Addo elephants nature reserve, staying in the forrist at Knysna and going on a sunset boat trip after which we went all the way home.

I was fortunate enough to have a very good friend who loves to help plan events. Maryke van Niekerk making sure i stay on top of everything needing to be done. Reminding me and asking difficult questions I would not have thought about until it was to late. She also make sure that everything was in order on the day, taking a lot of stess of me. I cant thank her enough. I will appriciate this forever.

I left the transport entirely up to my husband and as soon as I heard the sound of a Cobra coming our way I know that was our car and instantly smiled. From Cobra Cape Town.

Food & Cake

The venue has menu options only from Ebony and Ivory it's included into the venue price.They know what they are doing and you can really make it your own. My cake was perfect my sister in law also decorated it just the way i wanted it. I was so privileged.
