We met at University (UJ). We were both out one night after Varsity Cup at a place in Melville. He came up to me and asked me if I had false eyelashes. My reply to him was “NO I don't!”. I then started laughing (more like blushing because he was so good looking). He then asked me to close my eyes to prove that I didn’t have false lashes. I closed my eyes and he kissed me...
We have been dating for almost 5 year
I’m the more organised and serious one, where as Ivan is the easy-going, loving one who always takes care of me.
He nervously asked me to marry him on 27 April 2015 whilst on the big wheel at the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town.
We won a photographer on Facebook by participating in a competition.The brilliant Wynand van der Merwe is our engagement-shoot photographer.
Roedean School - the Venue. It is a gorgeous private school in Johannesburg. My mom is a teacher there and asked permission for us to have the engagement shoot there.
We had no theme initially, on the way there Ivan suggested a picnic basket and goodies.
We shopped around for engagement rings, so he got an idea of what I liked. Then he had one made at Poggenpoel Diamonds
We don’t have a wedding planner.
A rustic winter wedding, at the Hertford Country Hotel in Muldersdrift. Warm colours, good music and great company.
