Honeymoon before the wedding is not quite traditional, and it is called an elopement.
I was tempted when we tied the knot, and when I mentioned it to the father in law afterwards he said I should have told him, it would have saved the cost of the wedding and reception.
Talking to the wife on the honeymoon, she reckons she would have said yes, just from the nerves. Mother in law though would not have been impressed.
Maybe I could have done a deal and eloped with his daughter and gone halves with him on the wedding cost. Would have paid for the honeymoon.

Just a thought :-).

Shakey
I've done the Cape twice - first time Aug-Sep, second time Jul-Aug my preference is to go in the earlier timeframe. It's cooler and I also found the the fishing was better. Another good point is that the corrugations don't seem to be as big or as many early in the season.

Cheers

If you can push your departure to early May. Crowds start about May 28 going on the last couple of years. We had great fishing on the west coast around Weipa then.

I would go the earlier time frame it is more crowded but nicer time of year.

All the best
