A whimsical seaside wedding in South Africa with breathtaking views

Today's wedding comes to us all the way from Plettenberg Bay, South Africa. Jayne and Andries held their wedding at the Plettenberg Bay hotel and married outside in the ruins of an old cathedral. After the vows, the bride and groom with their guests headed to the beach for some fun where there were all sorts of games and entertainment. The bride is a wedding planner and her attention to detail can be seen in each flower, place setting and napkin. The fun and unique stationery was created by Nita of Elsje Designs and included stitched brown paper bag menus, pop-up placemats, distressed foil paper rosettes and more. The brides beautiful dress was from Abigail Betz and the fun day was captured by Wesley Vorster.
