The Karoo. A place with real people, Genuine stories and vast dry landscapes. It is the canvas that Stanley and Elaine chose for their wedding vows.
As I pulled in to Rooiberg Lodge after a 4.5 hour drive from Cape Town, I could smell the rain hanging over the landscape in thick dark clouds. There were still a good 24 hours before the ceremony would take place and some rain would be very welcome in this dry, yet rich desert plain.
Stanley and Elaine’s story started 9 years ago. Both small town kids with a natural love for the big outdoors. They definitely chose a fantastic venue to express this part of their relationship with friends and family traveling wide and far to attend this one-of-a-kind celebration.
It was most certainly one for the books!
