Western Cape South Africa Wedding by Hannes Uys Photography

Western Cape South Africa Wedding. True love can cross any ocean and climb any mountain. Doctors Carin and Shaun, who currently reside in Mossel Bay, South Africa, celebrated their marriage with a wedding in beautiful Klein Karoo, at the exquisite Surval Boutique Olive Estate. With lots of love and laughter, it was a day devoted to making beautiful memories.

With olive trees abounding all around the venue, there were lush green leaves everywhere. In the midst of it all was the gorgeous A-frame El Vestibule, where the couple said their I Do in front of dear friends and family.

With wooden beams shooting upward, and a grand candelabra in the center of the ceiling, Carin walked down the aisle to her groom. She looked like the picture-perfect bride with a soft V-neck gown, crafted with layers of satin and chiffon. She paired it with a simple veil, featuring a hem in varying lengths and carried a bouquet of soft pastel flowers.
