Will & Grace

Light is made of colour

“I bring arms outstretched and willing  / You bring armfuls of wood for the fire, securing our generous, bountiful home 

I promise, not to obey, But to respond joyfully, to forgive and console, For once incomplete, we are now whole” 

– Grace to Will, on their wedding day

It’s safe to say that we will never forget this wedding. Anyone who knows Will & Grace loves them – it’s impossible not too! From the very first time Will emailed us, we knew that this celebration would be something special. Friends & family gathered in the tiny Eastern Cape Village of Hamburg, at the Jewel Box, the house where the couple have spent many family holidays together. The bridal party wore outfits custom-made from sumptuous African wax prints, the couple were transported by donkey cart, Will bought two spits on which the wedding feast was prepared, and friends contributed incredible salads and side dishes to supplement the meal. This celebration was lovingly created by the hands of people who adore Will & Grace; in a village that does not even have a grocery store, everything had to be sourced from neighbouring towns, or made from scratch. Almost every guest contributed something to the day, a speech, a song, their time, part of the meal or a piece of the decor. There was a spontaneous fish auction, an energetic game of dodge ball on the lawn and dogs and children running freely. We bet you will wish you were there.
