The River Walk

One of the special side-effects of elopements and destination weddings is the precious pockets of time they open up. As the wedding-noise reduces, swallowed up a celebration’s exclusivity or by a hands-on wedding planner, devoted moments are inevitably shared between couples and/or their loved ones.

Mornings at Emily Moon are nothing short of magical. As the sun rises over the Bitou River, up into our vast African sky we cannot help but feel big and small all at the same time – anything feels possible and at the same time immeasurable.

The quietness of dawn allows space for our bodies (and minds) to wander through the woods and walk next to the river. Kelly and Lloyd, did just that, embarking Emily’s River Walk on the morning of their special day. See more of their elopement here!
