Married on Dec 17, 2015

Our wedding was the best day ever! It took place on the wonderfully sunny, but not too hot, 17th day of December in the year 2015.

We both feel so blessed that we are able to celebrate our love and were able to join our lives together in marriage, as a few years ago this wouldn't have been possible! With all the colours and the mingling of cultures, our wedding truly embraced what it is to be part of a rainbow nation!

We had our ceremony and reception at Shepstone Gardens in Houghton, Johannesburg. The venue is the perfect setting for a fairytale wedding, complete with a castle!

Our food was done by The Culinary Workshop, and it was fantastic!

Our amazing photographer was Alexander Smith, he was one of the best decisions we made!

Our theme & inspiration: After being together for almost 10 years, we know each other pretty well. Devlin's favourite song (Shimmer by Fuel) speaks of strawberries, champagne, lavender, cream and butterflies. So we incorporated this into all our décor. The bridesmaids dresses, the flowers, the stationery, and the table settings. All the cards used had a "shimmer" to them too!

The highlight of the day for me: There is not a moment that I can single out better than the look on Devlin's face when he saw me coming down the aisle. I used the song "How Long Will I Love You" by Joe Boden, Sam Sweeney & Ben Coleman for my entrance. It is from his favourite movie, "About Time". As I heard the song begin there was no keeping me back from my groom, my poor dad basically had to hold me back from running down the aisle!

A wedding is not only about the bride or groom, it is about the celebration of love, two families coming together and an unforgettable party. Mine and Devlin's wedding had all of these aspects, and made our wedding one for the books!
