Beautiful December weddings – a beautiful Beth and her Donovan graced Olive Rock one morning while I was setting up for a wedding. Such an elegant couple, Beth wearing a gorgeous wide-brimmed sunhat, were all smiles as they sat falling in love in every corner of Olive Rock - with the views, the energy and the charm of our special space.
Beth has been one of my most organised brides, everything well perfectly arranged right down to the tiniest detail. One of the things i loved dearly from their wedding were the beautiful hand crafted bunnies and hearts.
They were hand-carved by an South African chap who made one for every table plus some. I was so inspired by this that for Christmas i bought our staff chisel sets in the hope that they would start making pieces like this to A)grow as people and learn a new skill, and B)sell their work at markets and funky shops in Kalk Bay and the like. When we have quiet time in winter i am going to get my father-in-law to teach them the art, and i hope they fall in love with wood as much as him.
The wedding was a lovely party and they danced all night long under a necklace of stars with a glorious full moon. A fairy-tale wedding for this graceful couple.
