Helaine Lombaard (du Plooy)

Helaine Lombaard

Married on Mar 8, 2014

Me and Johann met by fate and faith, God knew we needed each other. We became friends, then best friends and then realized that we were soul mates all along. He asked me to be his girlfriend on New Year's at exactly 00h00 in the middle of the dance floor. Two years of loving and laughing followed and then on his birthday party he dropped on one knee and handed me a protea flower, my favourite, while declaring his undenying and everlasting love for me. It took me a while to see the beautiful engagement ring inside the protea and couldn't imagine saying anything else but yes.
Our engagement unfortunately was spent apart because of my work taking me 700 km away for a year, we started planning our wedding over emails and telephone calls until I returned. We had the most stunning 'little bit of vintage', 'little bit of bushveld' wedding on a game reserve in the middle of the veld with giraffes watching over the ceremony. And that was just the end of our beautiful beginning together.

Thank you Inyala Game Lodge, La Gracia Photography, Alexandra van Onselen(hairdresser), Jean Nalida Collections, and everyone else who made our day special.
