Kelly and Tyrone, along with Nicky M Photography, visited Emily Moon for a pre-elopement shoot the day before they said “I do!”. The next morning the couple got ready at our lodge before heading into the Tsitsikamma Forest to elope!
Winter in Plettenberg Bay is the best-kept secret – July is actually our driest month. Leo and Wayne got married on a clear and sunny winter’s afternoon. For African art curator/vintage collector Leo, and quantity surveyor/vinyl collector Wayne, Emily Moon was a blend of everything they loved.
“It is the best example of how to combine different styles, architectural pieces and memories from different travel destinations and cultures to create a space that feels like someone’s beautiful holiday villa, rather than a cold formal hotel or wedding venue. Emily Moon’s staff made us feel like family, and we couldn’t stop staring at the amazing river views.” - Leo
Leo never dreamt of wearing a white wedding dress. Instead, with the help of Cape Town designer, Kobus Dippenaar, she decided on a classic, vintage cut in a daring, gold sequin fabric. Her bouquet was an eclectic mix of fresh garden flowers and succulents.
We hope you enjoy W + L’s wedding story as much as we did!
