Frieda Vorster

Married on Mar 1, 2014

Every bride will start their fairy tale with...IT WAS THE BEST DAY OF MY LIFE! Well, I am no different, but I would like to see it as THE BEST DAY OF OUR LIVES SO FAR.

My husband and I are both from Gauteng but we have a great love for nature and the unique serenity that it provides. That is why we decided to get married on my friend's farm in Underberg, KwaZulu Natal, with the Drankensberg Mountains as our back drop to our special day. Close family and friends joined us for this weekend celebration. Everything and everyone were calm and enjoyed this peaceful setting.

We didn't really have a theme for our wedding but I guess if we had to label it, it would have been Natural Vintage. We used candles, wood and lace for our table decor and Navy Blue ribbon and Lavender as our main attention item. My dress was a sweat heart lace mermaid dress and my husband looked very handsome in his navy blue suite and bow tie:-)

They say that when it rains on your wedding day that you are blessed..well it POURED on our's. Luckily it decided to stop for about an hour so that we could take our wedding photos (which by the way came out stunning with the dark clouds).

I was very blessed to get married by my father. He wiped my tears when joy overwhelmed me, kept me calm through every step down the isle and gave my hand to my one and only, which I knew that he couldn't have chosen anyone better himself. Six months later my dad unexpectedly past away due to a heart attack. When I look back at my wedding photos, I can say with surety that my dad was so proud of me, of us for making such a success and of everything yet to come.

Thank you to everyone that made our day THE BEST DAY OF OUR far ;-)
