These lovebirds exchanged their wedding vows on the 1 of August 2015 in front of their family and close friends at the farm-style venue Uitsig outside George. Here are some highlights of their special day for you to enjoy!

Wedding photoshoot with beautiful Vanessa and Darryl.

Vanessa is the owner of the Besters’ Bridal Boutique in Knysna, hence the gorgeous dress and shoes, and Darryl is the artist behind Goldsmiths Knysna. It sounds like a match made in heaven.  Wedding rings were designed by the groom as a wedding gift. Their ceremony was special indeed. Lots of smiles, tears and laughter.
