"Once in a while, right in the middle of an ordinary life, love gives us a fairytale!" This is true to our wedding day! It was unique, magical and very special!
It was love with the first Whatsapp message, in a relationship before we met each other face to face and two weeks later at Cape Town International arrivals, it was true love at first sight!
A match made in heaven, against all odds! He lived in Johannesburg and I in Cape Town with no mutual friends. His favourite holiday destination, the Bushveld and mine Paris, France! Worlds apart from each other, but God came and intervened and at the right time completed the last piece of our puzzle as He had planned it for us both.
Exactly 401 days later, I walked down the aisle to the man of my dreams, specially chosen by God for me. My perfect match, my soulmate!! Our happiness knew no bounds! Surrounded by our family and friends, the most beautiful green vineyards, majestic mountains, rippling water of the river audible in the ceremony of the I DO's!
I sang my vows to him that I wrote and composed myself, "My rots, my fondasie, ek kies net vir jou! Die een aan wie ek getrou sal bly, my enigste ware liefde... Ek gee myself vir jou, wil elke droom saam jou bou. Ek belowe om jou lief te hê, onvoorwaardelik..."
Right from the start we wanted our wedding day to be a casual day, filled with laughter, happiness and fun! That's exactly how our Carnival themed wedding turned out!
Stalls with popcorn, candyfloss, toffee apples, candy, a colourful ice cream cart with customized ice creams and a clown who took pictures at a kissing booth, were a few of the elements that took our guests on a journey into a fantasy world! Into the air, a hundred red heart balloons were released to celebrate our blessed future!
I got married in my "different from the usual" wedding dress, specially designed for me, with a touch of red as surprise!! A very special moment was when my mom, a professional make-up artist, did my make-up!
With the sky filled with stars visible from our bedouin tent and a heart overflowing with love and happiness, there was only one phrase that was turning in my head all the time, " AND HE HAS MADE EVERYTHING BEAUTIFUL IN HIS TIME..."
