Pamela and Justin dreamt of eloping to Finland to get married under the Northern Lights. Before they could, they received the exciting news that they were expecting a baby boy! They still wanted to tie the knot but a bit closer to home. We were asked to find a beautiful forest for them to say “I Do” before the baby made an appearance. And not just any forest… one that had a magical, down to earth and all round good feel to it.

We found exactly what they were looking for the Melody Hill Yoga Retreat in Magaliesburg. A river runs along the bottom of the property and on the river bank is a forest! There is a blessed tree that covers the area and gives the space a cozy, calm feel.

Pamela was walked down the aisle by her two sons. She and Justin shared their vows next to a roaring fire, under the ‘stars’ and surrounded by fairy lights, with monkeys, cows and hadedas adding to the soundtrack of rustling leaves.

The cake cutting took a hilarious turn, especially for Justin… but that’s what this family is all about, love, laughs and fun! We all enjoyed a slice of cake with them and left then to share a relaxing family dinner on the patio of their cottage.

Pamela and Justin… thank you so much for inviting me to share your special day with you. And sending lots of love and happy thoughts to your new family X




Thank you to the super talented people who helped make this day so special!
