Ashley Gerrand (Groenevelt)

Ashley Gerrand

Married on Dec 15, 2014 in Western Cape

From the day that met my husband, I knew that there was something very special about him... And from then on it was a whirlwind journey of getting to know each other and falling in love. The four years that we have spent together have been nothing but fun, adventure, challenges but most important love and friendship. We can honestly say that we are the best of friends and I could not imagine my life without him.

When Sean asked me to marry him, it was the best day of my life not only because it was so special and I was over the moon with happiness but because it felt so right. Everything was perfect. We were so perfect for each other. We spent a year and a half planning for our big day, with all our amazing friends and family involved, the whole process was enjoyable. We laughed together through it all and had fun doing it. Yes of course there were challenges and disagreements but what made it all work was our ability to compromise and in the end we had the most incredible, magical day of our lives.

From the moment I woke up on the day of our wedding I felt at ease, completely content! (normally I am very emotional, can cry at the drop of a hat). Knowing that I would soon be Mrs Gerrand, married to the man of my dreams, my bestest best friend in the whole world just make me so happy and so calm. I was really able to take in all the special moments with my beautiful mom and bridesmaids and have during all the morning preps.

And then it was time.... All dressed and ready to go - feeling like a Princess, arm in arm with my amazing dad, I walked down the aisle to meet my Prince Charming. Overcome with emotion, all I could do was focus on him and was drawn into the moment. Saying " I Do" was the moment it all became real and that was incredible.

Our wedding day was absolutely unforgettable. Having our incredible friends and family there to share in the joyous occasion and have fun with us as newly weds was just the best thing that we could have ever asked for. Every aspect of our day was excellent, the venue was gorgeous, our ceremony and reception were both so magical with such a heartfelt service, amazing food, an great DJ and the photographers / videographers were brilliant. A very important thing for us was that our guests all have a good time and I think a true sign of that is when there is no food left over and no one wants to leave the dance floor.

15 December 2014 will forever be a day that will live on in our hearts and through life as one of our best days together and we will hopefully be able to share our magical with our children through the amazing stories, pictures and videos.

Words cannot describe how thankful we are to each and every single person that was involved in making our wedding and the whole experience so amazing. We are truly blessed to have such amazing friends and family who show us so much love, and we are so grateful to have chosen such amazing service providers for our big day, they all contributed to making it perfect.

Happily married I sit here today, thanking my lucky stars for blessing me with the man of my dreams and the amazing future that we have to look forward to.
