I got married to my soul mate on 14 March 2015 at the beautiful Colnera Estate, near Heralds Bay in the Western Cape. 6 Years ago our story started at the exact same venue when JM asked me to be his date at his best friend’s wedding. Since then we have been inseparable. When searching for wedding venues we immediately thought about Colnera and knew this would be the perfect place to start our journey.
I started planning our big day months ahead. The planning felt like forever and when our special day finally arrived it flew by in a wink of the eye, but I will always cherish the unforgettable moments deep in my heart.
Hubby to be went all out to make our wedding day unforgettable. At 12:00 one of my bridesmaids arrived in the room with a note and a bottle of champagne. She read the note out loud and already it was difficult to keep from shedding tears. His note was so beautiful and made me even more excited to marry the man of my dreams. At 14:00 our make-up and hair was done... and there arrived another note… This time I had to read it out loud, full of emotions and nerves his note had an instant calming effect. At 16:00 on our way in the car to the chapel, guess what… my dad took out a note… the last note. He read it out loud. This time neither I nor my dad could keep in the tears. Even the car with my bridesmaids in front of us looked back at me and my dad crying and they cried with us. But these were tears of joy and happiness.
Arriving at the chapel, there he was, waiting for me with the biggest smile I’ve ever seen. At that exact moment I knew I would never stop loving him. Our wedding day turned out exactly as I dreamed of just better. I will treasure our wedding day for the rest of my life.
