African Fantastic

Okay I'm not a wedding blog but sometimes weddings give you such inspiration I just couldnt resist posting this truly amazing one. The setting is Hermanus in the Western Cape of South Africa and I its by Aleit via The Pretty Blog which is an amazing South African wedding blog. My man is South African and having visited a couple of times I love that there is so much creativity there and they have such lovely ideas. 

How gorgeous and different is the brides dress and i totally love her flowers which are a mix of Protea (the national flower of South Africa) and fynbos.  (a shrub grown on Table mountain and in parts of the western cape)  They are just absolutely beautiful.

There are so many creative ideas here - the toasted sandwiches (which totally sold me the whole wedding!) Those cups of tea in the enamel mugs, the whole rustic vibe... swoon!

I could talk all day about the decoration, I love the fresh green and white vibe, the silver chairs, those divine lampshades. The protea's on the tables! And the table numbers hanging from ribbon is such a great idea!
