They got married two days before they moved out of the country!

These two had a beautiful civil partnership ceremony in Cape Town, South Africa. Since the two brides were moving to Germany, they wanted to run around taking wedding photos that captured as much of their home as possible — its buildings, beaches and spirit. I don't know anything about Cape Town, but I do know that these photos from their photographer Michelle Joubert-Martin are pretty damn sweet…

The girls decided to go for an easy approach to the whole day, and you can tell how relaxed and sublimely happy they are from the photos.

Their ceremony was held at a quirky little restaurant not far from the centre of town with only a few close family and friends. Not only did they manage to pull it all together in a matter of weeks, they also managed to pull it off on a tight budget AND while packing up their house!

Their reception also doubled as their going away party. Two days later they got on a plane, left their life in South Africa behind and embarked on a huge trip, traveling (through places like India and Vietnam) for several months before finally settling in Germany. Crazy, right!?
