Our wedding took place on the 26 September 2015 in the Winelands area of Stellenbosch. It was spring and it symbolised a new beginning and new season in our lives. Our wedding venue was the beautiful Vredenheim Wine Estate (The Hudson). We had the spectacular view of the mountains in the background. The wedding ceremony was held in the stunning garden by the dam which provided a natural element displaying the beauty of nature and this was exactly what we wanted. Our reception was in the stunning venue hall at The Hudson in Vredenheim Wine Estate and it was classic, elegant and filled with warmth, colour and a sense of intimacy. The atmosphere at the ceremony and reception was one of love, happiness and God in the centre of it all. The focus of our wedding day was on us, God and our close family and friends. And our guests had an opportunity to have a deeper glimpse into our love for each other and our journey together over the years.
When my husband and I reflect back we feel it was a special, beautiful and blessed day! We had been planning for this day for two years and it was an exciting journey with a rollercoaster of emotions and events that took place. But in the end we made the decision that no matter what happens we would enjoy the day to the fullest and have the time of our lives because it was our moment. Thinking of our wedding day fills our hearts with joy, happiness and gratitude. We are grateful that we were given this precious gift from God. When we think about the day and all its memories, we are just glad that we were present in every moment. And even though things don’t always go exactly according to plan (no matter how well you are prepared) it’s what you make of it and in the end the day turned out to be perfect for us.
