12 July 2014. The BEST day EVER!
After only 4 short months of being engaged, but 6 years of being in love, we finally arrived at the first day of our lives together as one. Our wedding day was perfect in every single way possible - and I know all brides say that but when I say literally everything was perfect - it was! From the dramatic thunder and rain, to the children of a nearby settlement, to saying our vows and joining our lives, to dancing for hours and laughing even more, to the most incredibly beautiful grooms speech and unique best mans speech - everything was filled with so much joy and absolute love! Family and friends from all over the world made this day more than what we could have imagined, and the blessing that is cannot even be described. Thank you to every single one involved in, and a part of our perfect day.
We got married at Slipperfields Wedding & Conference Venue, just outside PE. They managed all the decor and the beautiful venue came alive. Our theme was Rustic Glam and it turned out way beyond my wildest dreams. (http://www.slipperfields.co.za/)
Our wedding photography was done by Erna Loock - the photos speak for themselves - this woman is ridiculously talented! (http://ernaloock.co.za/) We asked all our guest to wait until the reception before whipping out their camera's as Erna is quite (ridiculously) capable, as well as we wanted each and every one of them to be present in the moment as we committed our lives to each other.
My extraordinarily talented Grandmother made my one of a kind wedding dress, she isn't a dress designer or even seamstress but no-one in the world would be able to tell that from the exquisite dress she made for me. I have never in my life felt more beautiful!
Our wedding was planned on a strict and tight budget - because our value was not on how much it cost, but rather on the celebration of our love and life together. You probably wouldn't believe me if I shared it!
I honestly could speak about this day for hours, days even, but it all comes down to being happier than I have ever been before, because I got to marry James, my high school sweet heart, best friend, my absolute rock and most importantly the love of my life.
PS. it was the BEST DAY EVER!!!!
