Philip + Jo | Die Strandkombuis

What was supposed to be a quick preview turned into a full fledged wedding blog! I just couldn’t help myself; There are too many beautiful things about this day. The moment I arrived at Die Strandkombuis and walked into the shelter of that huge stretched tent, I knew that there was no limit to the level of attention to detail. Everything had meaning; From the smallest Chuckle to the Celtic knot pendants Philip made for Jo’s daughters. These knots also featured on decor and stationery: Delicate glass urns and pots were engraved with this Quaternary symbol and neatly stamped silver wax seals adorned table decor and seating charts. Shades of duck egg and pale blue complimented the Dusty Miller that was used in bouquets and arrangements perfectly. Adding to this deliciously dusty dream were Café au Lait roses as big as tennis balls! Be still, my heart! The sentiment surrounding all these elements stretched like an intricate web from Jo and Philip’s hearts, through the heart ache and laughter life has given them, to the hearts of their guests. This is the start of a brand new chapter; There is much to celebrate!

Enough of my banter! See for yourself how things came together to create wedding perfection. Hats off and glasses up to everyone involved; I’ll brave anything with you!
