Magical Moments

 

-Had a calm night chilling with the bridal squad by the fireplace ,relaxing make-up and hair session the next day which resulted in tranquil atmosphere
- Photos between the apples (got to sneakily eat 1 or 2)
- Seeing everything you have planned just being put together
- and just being MARRIED, finally , after 10 years of dating!

The Honeymoon

 

We were planning on exploring Thailand (maybe that became be our "2nd" honeymoon as we have never been overseas) but decided to become tourists in our own area due to COVID and travel restrictions. So we had our 'mini honeymoon' in Plett. We favoured Plett as our honeymoon destination because we are campers at heart and Plett is our #1 camping spot. But don't worry we didn't go camping on our honeymoon. We have never stayed in a hotel in this area ( only camped) so my husband surprised me and booked us in a fancy hotel - The Sky Villa Boutique Hotel. We then got go explore Plett more and the surrounding areas. After all the excitement from the wedding (planning and all) we decided to take it easy on our honeymoon and finally enjoy our time together as a married couple. We did do a few activities such as explore Birds of Eden and go on a game drive.

Bride and bridesmaid stayed at Misty Orchads ( amazing little secluded house on a hill surrounded by an apple orchard) the night before which is about 5 minutes from the venue and just around the corner is Highlands Lodge where the groom and groomsmen stayed.
