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!
