The Rose Pavilion Plettenberg Bay Wedding – Jani + Petri

Jani and Petri met whilst Jani and her family were on holiday in Plettenberg Bay. Jani and her brother were keen to try their hand at surfing and so Jani’s Dad organised them a lesson with Petri who had taken him and his wife on a safari around Africa. The rest they might say is history as this was the first and last surfing lesson Petri ever gave, and he caught more than one or two waves, he found his wife to be!

Petri knew the Jani wasn’t one for a traditional proposal so he planned something rather spectacular. They got engaged at the Victoria Falls after doing a tandem bungy jump together. He popped the question while they were still hanging in mid air surrounded by beautiful rainbows and the sound of thundering water. This man clearly knows how to sweep this girl off her feet! Besides her love of adrenalin and adventure, Jani is absolutely mad about flowers, and so they decided to get married at The Rose Pavilion in Plettenberg Bay. If there was ever a wedding that was about love, flowers and family this was it!

Jani and Petri, it was truly such a joy to work with both of you and your families. Thank you so much for looking after us so well and for picking me to capture your special day!
