Chantelle Marais

Married on Nov 15, 2014

Our wedding was on 15 November 2014. Venue & Wedding was The River Cabin in Sandton. The day was rainy (just how we like it), and even though I had a white dress on, the rain subsided as I walked down the isle until we where done with the pics.

The ceremony was by the river on the property, and the reception was in a beautiful cabin type hall up the hill. We had deer running around on the property the whole day, making for amazing forest, whimsical photos taken by my talented friend Marianne Brits-Strodl.

It was a magical day with all our friends and family enjoying a simple wedding with us. The décor ladies at A2Z helped me create an amazing gothic type wedding feel in the reception area, that even took my breath away. I made my own Brooch bouquet with all the brooches I collected in my time with Stephen and also add ones from my Granny and friends that couldn't attend the wedding. Wanted everyone to be part of this day with us.

Nothing like seeing your vision come to life, feeling like a queen and then having the most amazing human being by your side! I am a very blessed lady, and could never have imagined it all being so perfect!

After 7 years of me battling with cervical cancer, and then being told I couldn't have a child, I found the most amazing man that is fine with this, stood by my side every step of the way, and after we got the all clear on the cancer, we decided its time to tie the knot. I cannot say that I have ever been happier in my life. Cliché.... Maybe... but I'm proud to say it out loud every day of my life.
