"Love will find a way"

After planning endlessly for just under a year, our day finally arrived, and now we are left with the amazing memories.

We chose Boesmanland Plaaskombuis because it was very important to me and Herman to get married on the West coast where our love started to bloom. And we wanted a place that best fit our personalities...down to earth, intimate and soulful.
Their help during the wedding process was endless and their food delicious.

We were so blessed to have one of the most beautiful days in Langebaan.
Everything was perfect, from the flowers to the decor and the little touches that made everything come together.

Everything was DIY and even though this caused a lot of nerves before the wedding, it was definitely worth it.
There were so many of our family and friends that were just so willing to lend a hand.
One of my best friends since childhood and flower guru did the entire wedding's flowers and Herman's wedding ring. She added touches that only a friend could do.
The printing was done by my cousin and her husband and it looked spectacular and added so much detail to our day.
Jenny from Jenro Beauty made me feel so beautiful, I can honestly say that until that day I have never felt so pretty as she made me feel.
Then Carien, our photographer, had a way of making us look and feel so special. She was so professional yet intimate. I am so very blessed that our moments are captured in time by her and Toy.

We were very fortunate to have had all our family and friends attend this special day with us. They were so very important to us, and we wanted our guests to leave knowing that their presence at our wedding made our day so much more special.

After being friends for 7 years, we couldn't have asked for a better beginning to our life as a couple.
Herman is the most handsome man I know and he was even more handsome on this day, if it was even possible.
I felt like a princess and couldn't help but give little jumps of joy as we sealed our marriage. We shared our own vows to each other which made it so much more special.

We are so fortunate to have each other, to be blessed in marriage by God, to have incredible family and friends who contributed so much to this day and to have a ONE day that was absolutely flawless.

We would like to give special thanks to:
Carien at Love of Light Photography
Rene at Uproot for the flowers
Anthony and Sonja at Cape Branding
Cathlin at Boesmanland Plaaskombuis
Jenny at Jenro Beauty
Leah Francisca Bridal for my amazingly beautiful dress!
