11 Mar Island Fabulous: Praslin Island, Seychelles
Our very first international wedding took us all the way to Praslin Island in the Seychelles. Abraham and Embe wanted an Island Fabulous wedding and it was both a challenge and a pleasure to make that happen!
The process was a massive learning curve. The resort was very helpful and professional, but we really struggled to find suppliers on that side that could carry the vision and bring the right skills to the table. So after many a trial and error, we decided to fly a florist in and by a process of elimination we stumbled upon an amazing decor supplier (who really saved the day in the end!)
We didn’t have the support or the infrastructure in the Seychelles that we do here in Cape Town, so it was quite stressful not really knowing how it would all come together in the end. There was a lot that was left to chance, in a sense, but in the end it all worked out beautifully.
Through all the ups and downs of the journey, we built a beautiful friendship with the couple and more than the experience and the splendor of the Island it is something that we will cherish.
The wedding was intimate, beautiful and filled to the brim with laughter and fun and we will definitely remember it for all the right reasons.
