WATCH: Prepare to Be Blown Away by This Gorgeous South African Wedding

Real Weddings

Whether you're newly engaged or about to get married, there's something every engaged lady has in common: You love some good wedding eye candy. Namely, a gorgeous real wedding video with tons of inspiring ideas you can consider for your own big day. While our real wedding video channel is made up of well over 100 beautiful events, each week we take you inside just one of our favorite new celebrations. And today's is a real doozy. Kate and Rob wed in a breathtaking wedding on a charming South African winery, and the footage captured by Hand Stitched Films is not to be missed.

Sure, not everyone has the luxury of jetsetting with friends and family to a far-flung locale, but that doesn't mean you can't appreciate — and steal ideas from — a party in a far-off destination. Although the South African backdrop certainly doesn't hurt, it's not far from the only thing we love about this couple's sunny spring vows. And speaking of which, Kate and Rob's incredibly emotional ceremony featured some of the most touching promises we've heard to date. They kept the format simple and swore they'd wake up next to each other and try to bring the other happiness everyday, proving that promises spoken from the heart make the very best type of wedding vows.

As for the reception, these two knew what they were doing when they planned their day. From the thumbprint guestbook to the tower of cupcakes for dessert, it was clearly important to Kate and Rob that wants and needs of their guests came first. Their understated décor, which included a beautiful tent, café lights, and bunting banners made for a relaxed atmosphere that paved the way for a fun-filled evening.

Last but not least, can we talk about this couple's impeccable style? From the bride's form-fitting lace dress and dainty flower crown to the groom's decision to pair his formal suit jacket and suspenders with a pair of laid-back shorts (yes, shorts!), this beautiful bride and groom were all about being themselves on the big day.
