Shepstone Gardens wedding: Ursula + Kevin by Amanda Custo

When we arrived at Shepstone Gardens last Saturday morning (skies beautifully clear, a couple of white doves perched on the chapel steeple), we were told that "the weather is just too perfect...it will surely rain later on...".

But it didn't. And it stayed perfect. 
We were so ridiculously excited about Ursula & Kevin's wedding, we were shaking with excitement (quite literally actually!) - not only by the dripping blooms from every ceiling beam and arch but by Ursula and Kevin's contagious excitement (and of course, Ursh's AMAZING wedding gown). Zavion, Lauren and the rest of the Zavion Kotze Events Company team was in top form arranging and decorating, while the crew of Zavion's TV show was filming their every move.
We feel blessed to have been part of such an awe-inspiring production!

Sorrento, Italy Wedding: Sabrina + Agnello by Amanda Custo

To say that we'd been looking forward to Sabrina & Agnello's wedding in Italy is just a horrible understatement...we were counting down a year, then months and then finally it was just a few weeks away...

Sometimes, when your expectations of a place are so overwhelming, it very often turns out to be disappointing when one actually gets there. Take Paris, for example - there is so much excitement...one dreams, conjures, pictures seeing the Eiffel tower, the Louvre, the Arc de Triomphe for the first time (no pressure Paris!). Sometimes the expectations are met and other times it is less than expected, or just different.

Our expectations and experience of Sorrento? Unequalled! The food, the people, the atmosphere. It was what we dreamed and so much more. Sabrina and Agnello's wedding topped off our time on the Amalfi coast and I think everyone involved felt that this was something so incredibly special and a once-in-a-lifetime. If only time could be stopped we would have that beautiful Saturday afternoon, a vision of a regal-looking bride, a breathtaking cathedral, palace venue against the coastal cliffs and a feast fit for a king over and over again...
