Will and Gaylen decided on an intimate, elopement wedding with only their friends and family at the Honeywood Farm on the Western Cape.  The open-air table was set with wonderfully colorful wildflowers.  The ceremony took place under a majestic tree with a view of the majestic mountains.  The guests were treated to fine dining with courses like quail.  The bride collected vintage plates from fleamarkets for a year before the wedding and each guest could take their plate home as a gift.
