Catherine and Petar’s pretty South Africa wedding day had it all…gorgeous scenery in Cape Town, a stunning Greek Orthodox Cathedral, and an elegant ballroom! I love the glimpse of their festivities at every single location, from Du Wayne Photography!
The Couple: Catherine and Petar
The Wedding: 2.3.12 – St Georges Orthodox Cathedral and The Bay Hotel – Cape Town, South Africa
What three adjectives best describe your wedding? Classic, Colourful, Fun
What was your wedding color palette? Shades of pink and grey/silver
What inspired your personal wedding style, and how did you incorporate your style and personalities into your big day? We both love the ocean and the great outdoors. Choosing Camps Bay, Cape Town, with its amazing mountains and ocean scenery, was not difficult even though we are both from Australia. We included colours that contrast the blues of the ocean and sky (hence the pinks), added a few African touches (favours and Marimba band), and celebrated with with good food and wine, family and friends. It was a lot of fun.
Looking back, what are the moments, decisions or memories that you love the most about your wedding? Everything was perfect!
What piece of advice would you give to a bride planning her wedding today? Have a good diary and wedding file, be organized, be careful not to get too carried away as budget can blow out, do a little bit every week as this stops it all getting on top of you, and have fun!
