Destination Oyster Box Wedding – Cagla + Brendon

Cagla is Turkish but grew up in Germany and Brendon is South African but grew up in Zambia. They both studied in Australia and were brought together by fate at a bar one evening. That night marked the beginning of a love affair that would stand through huge obstacles like a serious accident, different cultures and a two year long distance relationship. Nowadays they both live in Zambia but decided to have a destination wedding at the Oyster Box Hotel in Durban. Guests flew in from all over the world and it must have been one of the “global” weddings I have attended in a while! One thing is for damn sure, the guests at this wedding knew how to party. It was also very clear just how much these two adore each other!

Cagla and Brendon it was wonderful to see you both beaming with joy and enjoying your wedding to the absolute fullest. Thanks so much for picking me. We wish you all the best for a long happy future together.

And now a personal message from the bride and groom

Oh what an unforgettable day & night we had…
Thanks to our amazing suppliers who became the best partners for our big day! However, it would not be a wedding if there wouldn’t be family & friends to share it with…
Having a very international background we have friends all over the world, it was very touching seeing most of them come and share our special day & night. They flew in from Canada, Germany, Australia, Zambia, Mozambique, Turkey, UK and the Reunion Island. The dance floor was not empty for a second and their moves the most creative ever!THANK YOU. YOU ALL ARE VERY SPECIAL TO US. WE WILL NOT FORGET!
