Married on Nov 21, 2015

I've known for a long time what kind of wedding I wanted!!! a homely feel, lots of DIY and just a whole lot of love in the room! and boy did we get that and so much more!! We planned our wedding from London which was fun but proved to be quite difficult and frustrating at times and without the help of my mom, dad, brother & close friends it would never have been possible. My brother who is a wedding DJ himself helped us with venues and recommending a DJ so that he could party with us and my parents did all the running around and DIY decor. We couldnt wait to get back to Durban so we could help as well! But not only were we getting married, we had also made the decision to finally move back to South Africa after more than a decade in London! Our families and friends were the biggest support system we could ever have prayed for while we made the big move and were on hand to do everything wedding related and it was so awesome to be able to help with all the decor once we got back! We got to Rain Farm on Friday to set up all of our decor with the help of all our family and bridal party and seeing it all come together was just the most amazing feeling! It was exactly how I had pictured it in my head! That evening we had a burger braai with our closest family & bridal party, such a special evening seeing our families come together before the big day :) Our wedding day was just absolutely incredible! My beautiful bridesmaids kept me calm when the weather reported that Saturday afternoon would consist of gale force winds and heavy rain and boy did it come down, just as we got into the chapel! But that didnt stop us! We got some amazing photos despite the weather and just walking into our reception and seeing all of our favourite people in one room was just enough to make our hearts absolutely burst! The speeches were hilarious and emotional and boy did our DJ Pierre get the party pumping afterwards! You could literally just feel the love in the room and I will never ever forget that feeling! The absolute best day of my life so far :)
