On the Edge : A Fyn Love

Right on the edge of one of the most beautiful areas in South Africa and my home town Plettenberg Bay is this phenomenal venue; the Plettenberg Park Hotel. I just needed to share this past weekend’s epic location so as to set the scene before I could continue telling you about this wonderful couple’s love story.

Andries & Marga are probably the sweetest and kindest couple; their respect and love for each other is evident in every little thoughtful gesture towards each other and the people around them. I found this quote online and with the overall theme of the wedding being fynbos from the beautiful floral designs to the wonderful reading the marriage officiant did. It just came together for me about the kind of love these two share:

I cannot live without your love, with you I am strong. Like fynbos firmly rooted to this earth

One part of the ceremony that stood out for me was definitely about how fynbos needed to burn once a year to germinate again and like any relationship I’m sure these two will go through ups and downs, but knowing them I can only see it making them stronger for it every time and just deepening this love they already built on such a solid foundation.

If we were in England I would have compared Marga’s natural beauty as that of an english rose but our local equivalent is even more perfect; the blushing bride. Full of laughter throughout the day  she just absolutely glowed with the love and happiness this moment was for both her & Andries.

Love is in the Details
