It’s time to say goodbye to another week filled with inspiration. And what better way to send you off on the weekend than with this chic Cape Town wedding by Alice Swan? Raymond and Nomsa said their vows at the stunning Roundhouse Restaurant with Table Mountain as majestic backdrop. This easy-going affair simply fills our hearts with glee, as it’s full of love, joy and beautiful surroundings. Not to mention Nomsa’s stylish tea-length dress and bright red lips. Enjoy!

Francois & Lenate’s Beach Sunrise Shoot

Today we share the beautiful honeymoon shoot of Lenate & Francois who were the lucky winners of a couple shoot competition run by the lovely Claire Harries Photography. What made this shoot so fantastic was that the couple got up at 3 am to be camera ready at the crack of dawn for a sunrise shoot on Llandudno beach. The early morning mist and light was spectacular and certainly contributed a great deal to enhance the dreaminess of these beautiful images. Enjoy!
