Carla + Stelio’s Whimsical Wedding…

Carla and Stelio’s whimsical South African wedding, captured by Sybrand CilliĆ©, is overflowing with creative details! Their ceremony set up is one of the most unique I’ve seen! A chalkboard platform covered in sweet verses and romantic phrases, placed underneath a sprawling tree adorned with hanging birdcages. Just beautiful! I’m also totally in love with the ombre hem of Carla’s gown. It has such an ethereal feel!
