Traveling all the way from Cape Town to Graaff-Reinet for a Karoo wedding…. Madness I know!! But it was worth every bit of the 16 hours it took us to travel there and back.
The setup at Samara Game Reserve was massive – truckloads of tents, catering equipment, decor and food was shipped in, all the way from Bredasdorp, to cater for 200 guests in the middle of nowhere – nothing short of a feat for destination wedding coordinators Antoinettes Events. Apart from the stunning Manor Lodge at Samara there was literally nothing when they started – the end result…. a stunning world class wedding that competes with the best we have covered to date!
The wedding itself was preceded by a cricket day at neighboring game farm eSante Sana – odd – yes very odd! Check this out below – a cricket pitch smack bam in the middle of the Karoo! All the none, this social cricket day & spit braai made coming out to Graaff-Reinet absolutely worth it!
Sam & Ed and the Colletts – what an amazing interesting and genuine couple and family – Thanks for making us feel so at ease and part of the crowd!
PS. Next time we’ll travel with a satellite phone – that might save us from being stranded in a car at night for 5 hours!
