After meeting my husband 6 years ago, he decided to pop the question on the 9th August 2014 and our magical wedding day took place on 7th November 2015 at an unbelievable wedding venue, Zonnevanger, in Paarl. This date chosen was very special to me, as my Grandparents would have been married for 56 years if my Grandfather was still alive, we are aiming to beat their record.
We shared our vows and became Husband and Wife on a little dam surrounded by close friends and family, the reception followed thereafter. Saying our vows was not unnerving at all, I thought it would be, but we had good fun laughing, giggling and grinning from ear to ear when one of us pronounced something incorrectly.
After the ceremony the guests were served with canapes and punch whilst close family took photographs with us in the lush gardens. We then had the couple’s photo shoot where we had time to spend together in lavender fields, bright colored flower beds and gravel roads between vineyards, this is the chance we got to take it all in and realize that we were officially husband and wife.
The reception followed thereafter where guests were served with starters, a buffet for main course and dessert. The starters was chicken Phyllo pastry. The buffet included, Gammon, lamb, Pumpkin Fritters, Broccoli and bacon salad, Mediterranean vegetables, potato bake, green salad. To finish the meal off, each guest was served with Tiramisu.
The rest of the night was spent dancing and celebrating our new life together with our family and friends.
Our wedding day was beyond describable, it was everything we wished for and more and we have our friends and family to thank for this as well as our suppliers on the day, as listed below. I would refer every single friend and bride to be to the suppliers that did such an amazing job on my wedding day.
Choosing to marry my Husband was by far the best decision I have ever made. Our wedding day was the best day of my life. I would do it all over again tomorrow if I could, every single treasurable moment.
