Rosemary & Gareth flew into Cape Town from the UK with two days to get married before going to see Gareth’s family in Pretoria for a post ceremony celebration.

Predictably, the unpredictable Cape Town weather made things interesting. Luckily it cleared enough to allow for a beautiful ceremony under a huge tree, overlooking the Atlantic coast.

Rosemary looked gorgeous, in a dress with purple accents, walking to meet her man to the Star Wars theme song. Surrounded by 1 000 purple paper cranes and garlands of gorgeous blooms, they said their I Do’s and signed on the dotted line.

After a beautiful picnic brunch overlooking the ocean and a delectable mini cake, complete with kitty cake toppers, they were whisked off for a helicopter flip over Cape Town to celebrate!
