A time to wed...

 This Saturday we attended Julia and Athol's wedding at Groenland Wine Estate.  They made a lovely couple and the setting was so beautiful and romantic, that Marlon and Carmy looked like they wanted to get married all over again!Pastor Beckett was the minister and the whole ceremony took place outdoors on a really warm and lovely Spring day.  Groenland took care of the food, tables, chairs and table settings at a VERY reasonable price.  It also made sense to have everything happen in one place: the ceremony, the reception and the photographs in the lovely garden.  The outdoor ceremony finished at around 10:30am, after which we had nice brunch indoors with a few speeches and then the photographs out in the lovely garden.  By lunchtime, everything was over and the happy couple could head off to their honeymoon.

I just loved the simplicity of this wedding, and thinking of RJ's (Ruth-Jade) wedding coming up next year, hope that she will be inspired to keep it simple too!

This is how the place settings looked.  The flowers were stunning too, and were supplied by Bunches for Africa !  Each guest was given a cute little jar of honey as a gift.

A wedding like this for 60 pp could have cost around R10k which is a really affordable option.
