I can honestly say the most fun I have ever had was on my wedding day!
I woke up on the 20th Dec, after having a great nights sleep, to a beautiful sunny day in Clarens in the Freestate. Seeing the sun helped my nerves as it was raining the day before. The day started with a good cup of coffee and scrambled eggs and bacon. After that it was time to start the hair. I had 4 bridesmaids, my sister was my maid of honour and there were 3 flower girls. My mom did my hair for me and I did my own make up. Throughout the day I felt an unnatural calm and felt filled with joy and excitement!
When it was time to head to the venue, I was overwhelmed with excitement. When I heard the music and it was my cue to walk down the isle, my heart wanted to jump out of my chest. Hugging my dads arm, I looked up saw my handsome husband dressed in a navy blue suit and everything felt right. Saying ‘I do’ was the easiest part.
After we took our photos, thanks to Maryke Albertyn photography, we entered our reception area. A big thank you to our Wedding planner, Conrad van Staden, who got the décor so right. White roses everywhere, fairy lights, candles, white lanterns – its was breath-taking. On top of that our food was delicious and more than we could of imagined.
It was a wonderful night of dancing with friends and family, enjoying conversation with my school friends, eating ice cream and standing under the stars.
I am so happy to be a Willemse.
