Hermanus on the southern coast of the Western Cape, South Africa, is truly where the ocean meets the land and the earth meets the sky. Many are attracted to it as a whale watchers’ mecca when the Southern Right Whale choose the seclusion of the bay to rear their young between July and November each year.
But the town and surrounding areas hold so many more secrets of little rock faced beaches and beautiful mountain garden paths leaving all visitors in awe of the moist mountain smell mixed with the salty sea breeze – by the compliments of God Almighty.
Here, irrespective of religion, one is reminded that earth was created by a Higher Power. And as man was placed on earth to tend and watch over it – we were not destined to be alone – which should make Hermanus the perfect wedding destination. Inspiration comes from the surroundings with a variety of unique and intimate venues, wine farms, restaurants, upmarket boutique Hotels – all for the special day or an elopement wedding destination.
On Langbaai, (meaning Long Cove) the Bride dressed by Lubellos® is waiting on the beach, surrounded by ocean, bushes and rocks. The table is simply set in the sand – it is authentic, natural and with simple elegance.
Her diamonds supplied by Marion Rehwinkel Jewellery, are glistening in the morning dew and her face is blossoming. Suitably her arms are filled with a variety of indigenous flowers – including the White King Protea (the national flower of South Africa).
The Arctic bridal gown – styled perfectly for the day is completely at home by the Ocean and complements the setting with the promise of a combination of comfort, quality and contemporary fashion – true to the Lubellos® design style.
Standing on the cliff path, looking down at the cove, overwhelmed by the natural effortless beauty, the memories of Langbaai are etched into our hearts. We will keep accompanying our couples to the deepest secrets of South Africa, making memories and experiencing the unforgettable gifts that life offer us.
We will all meet down by the Ocean…
