ROMANCE IN THE FOREST
Kelly and Tyrone tie the knot beneath towering trees
COUPLE: Kelly Mac Lachlan and Tyrone Davies VENUE: Tsitsikamma, near Witelsbos (between Plettenberg Bay and Humansdorp) BUDGET: About R60 000 GUESTS: 11
It was pouring with rain as they travelled from Plettenberg Bay to their wedding ceremony in a Tsitsikamma forest. But the gloomy weather turned out to work in their favour – once it stopped raining the cloudy sky created a magical, romantic atmosphere for their special day, which Kelly (27) said they wanted to be simple, practical, unique and raw.
Kelly, a physiotherapist, met Tyrone (29), a construction planner, in 2007 while visiting Madagascar, where he worked. After eight years together (including a five-year longdistance stint) the Port Alfred couple tied the knot in an intimate ceremony along the Garden Route. And it was unique – the reception was held the night before the ceremony and the bride and groom got dressed together and walked down the aisle hand-in-hand.
