Having a Beach Ceremony? We’ll Make It Fabulous!

Lesley of Wellspring, a wedding planner, can assist you, with a wedding ceremony on the beach and a dinner only or a dinner dance house party type wedding at a beach house or a reception at an indoor venues close to the beach, whether you live just around the corner, in another province, or on another continent and visiting South Africa for the destination beach wedding of a lifetime. We plan weddings mainly from Pennington, near the coastal town of Scottburgh to Port Edwards in KwaZulu-Natal, on the east coast of South Africa, where shores are washed by the warm Indian Ocean. This includes, Pennington, Umzumbe, Umtentweni Port Shepstone, Uvongo, Margate, Ramsgate, South Broom and Port Edward

We prefer to work with small, intimate weddings of no more than 40 people. You would use our services if you live far from the location of your wedding or can see the value of having a professional wedding planner/organiser on board to help you plan your wedding to eliminate a huge amount of stress, and your wedding day to run without a hitch. We will save you time and anxiety.

Our wedding planning/ organising services include:

  • Booking a marriage officer to conduct a beach ceremony or a chapel or church ceremony in English or Afrikaans and facilitate all the legalities with home affairs
  • We will set up a draped bridal arch, with flowers on the beach or in a chapel, or at a venue
  • We will supply a table on the beach for use when signing the register
  • Through us you may order a bridal bouquet of your preferred colour and style
  • If you require a beach ceremony, we can recommend the quietest beaches or find suitable chapel/church.
  • We can assist with  in door (not out door)  dinners or dinner /dance receptions
  • We do not do marquee weddings.
  • If required, we can recommend and book a venue for a dinner/dance reception.
  • If required and for a less expensive wedding, we can recommend and book a venue or restaurant for a celebration dinner without a DJ and dancing.
  • Organise the cake, décor and flowers and items that need to be hired. You tell us what you want, we make it happen
  • If required we recommend and book: photographer, florist, wedding cake, décor, make-up and hair stylists and more …
  • We prefer to work with trustworthy local suppliers that we know and who offer good value for money, but will also work with suppliers of your choice
  • Part of the package includes compiling a wedding schedule/function sheet to manage the timing of events so that everyone knows what they are doing and WHEN everything is supposed to happen.
  • On the day a consultant will be in the background directing operations so you don’t have to worry about anything other than preparing yourself for  your special day.

 Beach Ceremonies

Many couples dream of getting married in Kzn, because they want beach ceremonies and we gladly assist them. However, we always recommend having a Plan B in case inclement weather drives you and your guests under cover. The south coast has lots of reasonably priced venues close to the beach.
