The Best Of: The Oyster Box Hotel Weddings

A while back the marketing ladies from The Oyster Box Hotel asked me if I would be open to them using some of my imagery on their website. This beautiful Umhlanga hotel is one of my favourite place to photograph weddings in the whole of South Africa so I was more than happy to comply! I have shot ALOT of weddings at The Oyster Box over during all my many years of being a wedding photographer and whilst gathering the images together I realised it would make a fabulous celebratory blog post!

This luxury five star hotel is a prime South African wedding destination for so many reasons! It overlooks a pristine beach housing the iconic Umhlanga lighthouse, the decor in the hotel is breathtaking which for an artist like me is so inspirational, the service is through the charts, the food is absolutely delicious and the staff are all so friendly. If you are a couple who are looking for a classy wedding by the beach without the beach sand, this may be the venue for you!

Advice from a Wedding Co Ordinator – Carolyn

I first met Carolyn whilst shooting weddings at Netherwood. She reminds me of a ray of sunshine – Always smiling, always warm! Carolyn has since gone on her own and this is most certainly a blessing for brides who want to work with a wedding co-ordinator who will be as excited about your wedding as you are! Thanks to Carolyn for taking the time to give us some of her expert advice.
