Wedding weekend

Who doesn’t love attending a wedding? I love love and seeing two people coming together in the most beautiful way.

Sox and I were invited to attend our friends, Kyle Brown and Tarryn Styane’s wedding on Saturday. Sox would also be DJing at the wedding, which guaranteed a night of endless dancing. We packed a small overnight bag, hit the road and arrived in a little town called Riebeek Kasteel, which is about an hour or so outside of Cape Town.

I took yet another road trip selfie; Sox’s favourite, can’t you tell?

We arrived at The Shades of Valley Guesthouse and were welcomed by a lovely lady and her dog, Lucky.

We were given the Wild Olives room, where we relaxed first and then freshened up and got ready.

I was laughing at our mirror… at least I got to see what the bottom half looked like.

We headed out to Delsma Farm where the ceremony was held right next to a bubbling river, underneath the trees and singing birds. It was so beautiful and peaceful.

After the beautiful and sentimental ceremony, we headed up for Pimms cocktails, wine, snacks and games, like giant Jenga, that had everyone competitively enthralled.

I didn’t managed to get a photo of the cheeseboard before it was devoured attacked. It was so damn good though.

After a while, we were allowed into the reception and found our tables.

I took a photo of the chocolate board, but didn’t touch a piece. I’ve quit sugar for 2015 and it’s been so hard, but so rewarding too. Blog post coming about that soon! 

We danced until 02h30 and my feet were so sore by the end of the night, but it was such a party! We climbed into bed at 03h00 and as soon as my head hit the pillow I was in dream land instantly.

In the morning we made plunger coffee and nearly fell back asleep, but we wanted to explore the little town, Riebeek Kasteel. I love wandering through streets and finding the gems.

We found this natural soap shop, where we bought Vanilla hand soap. It had the most beautiful angel wings on display. Gorgeous.

After a meander, we headed to Eve’s Kitchen for something to eat. It was rather tempting to join the doll, but we left her to dine alone.

After lunch and exploring all there was to explore, we headed back to Cape Town.

Congratulations Mr and Mrs. Brown – wishing you a lifetime of happiness together!
