Melandie van Schalkwyk

Married on Mar 22, 2014

After dating my husband for 9 and a half years, he proposed to me and 11 months later we got married on the 22nd of March 2014 at Ganzekraal Holiday resort, along the west coast.

I woke up very early the morning of our wedding and me and my bridesmaids all sat under a blanket on one bed, drinking coffee, staring out of the window on the beautiful beach and just chatting away the hours until we had to start getting ready.

From there onwards the time just flew by. Before i knew it i was walking down the isle, with the biggest smile on my face, towards the only man i have loved unconditionally. We had a beautiful ceremony and our guest made us feel really special.

Before long, we had our first dance on a song dear to us both, The Story, which was sang by a beautiful friend and their band.

I actually do not re call much of the evening after that because it flew by in seconds.

Overall it was a amazing weekend, with lots of laughter, Joy and love.....The perfect setting for an amazing wedding day.
