Married on Dec 6, 2014

On the 06th of December 2014 I got married to the man of my dreams. While planning our wedding, Lyle and I knew exactly what we wanted our special day to be like, we wanted it to be elegant, but intimate. We also decided early on in the planning stages that no matter what we want our wedding to reflect our love for each other. Our motto throughout the planning and on the day itself was: If at the end of the day I am married to you, it would be the best day of my life.

We chose Umbhaba Lodge in Hazyview for wedding. We fell in love with the venue the moment we saw it. We knew that Umbhaba will fit in with vision we had for our wedding. We were mesmerized with the water features, the small wooden chapel on the river and with the friendly staff.

Our wedding colour scheme was yellow, black and silver and we decided on Gerberas, Rose and Arium Lilies for our table decor. We add a few slices of lemon into vases with the flowers for a different look.

We had a small and intimate wedding with family and close friends to share in our celebration.

When I walked down the aisle and I saw Lyle (the groom) tears rolled down my cheeks and my heart jumped, because I couldnt believe my luck. I am getting married to my best friend. I was so excited when the Pastor announced you may kiss the bride, I knew at that stage I am officially MRS Jansen van Vuuren.

Our wedding day was the best day of my life.
