Tish and Haytham – intimate Camps Bay beach ceremony
Tish and Haytham wanted to combine a intimate wedding with an African adventure rather than a big celebration in the USA, so they settled on an elopement to the beautiful Cape Town in South Africa.
Keeping in mind the distance and logistic of getting married in a foreign country, the couple quickly enlisted the services of Timeless Weddings to bring their dream day to fruition. Once Timeless Weddings was on board to assist them, the next step was to finalise their ideal romantic setting for their elopement in Cape Town.
They finally settled on an intimate ceremony on Camps Bay beach shortly after landing in Cape Town, and before their honeymoon around Southern Africa. So the stunning Camps Bay beach was the place where they exchanged their vows, on a rather overcast but fortunately sunny mid-morning in May.
Keeping it simple was their top line brief to Timeless Weddings, and that is exactly what we did. Tish selected her primary colour scheme as blue, which she said was inspired by Haytham’s beautiful vivid blue eyes,
Tish carried a hand tied bouquet of mixed white flowers with accent succulents, which she interspersed with some blue detail that she had brought from home in the USA. She wore a blue flower in her hair and completed the look with blue accent jewellery.
Haytham wore dark trousers and waistcoat with a blue shirt to match Tish’s accent colours. He had a simple white rose boutonniere which offset his dark waistcoat.
Reverend Brits met with the Tish and Haytham just prior to the ceremony to ensure legal work was carried out. They incorporated a simple sand ceremony which symbolised the joining of their souls in a new life together.
Classic Tours ensured that they were transported in there and back in style in a vintage limousine.
Steve Miller did a wonderful job of capturing all the romance of the day with the stunning backdrops that Cape Town affords, so they could show their family and friends back in the USA.
After the wedding ceremony, they were transported to the V&A Waterfront in the Limo to enjoy a relaxing lunch in an iconic setting.
Tish and Haytham, your wedding day was simple, but most certainly special and romantic, and we wish you both all the best as you move forward in life as husband and wife.
