Robert and Nicola are high school sweet hearts and their day was filled with so much love and happiness.
They are both from Cape Town but are living in Ireland where Rob plays rugby professionally. I worked with Nicola over quite a few FaceTime calls and emails to plan their romantic winter wedding. Luckily, we had Nicola’s twin sister Lindi in Cape Town to stand in at a few dress fittings for her.
The couple simply wanted a fun weekend that brought everyone together so that they could make the most of their time with their family and friends in Cape Town.
