If I were to script a wedding, it would not be far off the amazing beach wedding at the Walskipper in J Bay that I enjoyed with Mark, Beda, their close friends and family. These are definitely my kind of people.
Mark and Beda met while doing a few ski seasons in the Italian Alps. It is a genuine fairytale love story that brought them together. They both enjoy the outdoors and extreme sports. Being from Sweden, Beda is a natural born skier and Mark is very much into his surfing and water based activities, hence the want for a beach wedding. In fact their wedding is the start of a whole new chapter for them as they embark on a new adventure living in Cape Town.
The entire day was quite surreal. We were experiencing a severe red tide in J Bay, which had turned the sea a mottled brown colour. The night before the wedding an offshore wind blew the red tide out to sea. We did enjoy a rain shower on the morning of the wedding however. This soon cleared and we were blessed with the most wonderful day to have a beach wedding starting at. Even the wind behaved as a slight breeze was welcome relief from what surely would have been an uncomfortably warm day to be wearing a wedding dress. We could not have asked for a more striking sunset. Bright pink and orange clouds spread across pastel skies makes for a wonderful setting.
