On the 21st March 2015, we woke up to the most horrible rainy and stormy weather conditions with heavy tides coming onto the shore.
What started out as a disappointing day, turned out to be the most beautiful, blessed, warm summer’s day at the stunning venue of Ganzekraal in Yzerfontein on the West Coast.
After a Year and 1 month of planning, our Big day finally arrived.
My dream of a beautiful beach wedding was about to take place in just a few hours. I was marrying the man of my dreams.
I felt like the Little Mermaid in my white and silver wedding dress. It was a non-traditional setting as the ceremony took place right next to the ocean as the spring tide was splashing onto the shore.
My ring-bearer and little mermaid flower girl, along with my 4 bridesmaids in different shades of blue with their Chinese umbrellas accompanied me down the aisle.
My mother and father were on my side as we were walking towards my handsome Knight in shining armour standing at the altar.
The wedding reception was held in the banqueting hall which was situated on a hill overlooking the beauty nature had to offer us.
Guests were sipping on sundowners whilst the sun was setting over the ocean. The venue was decorated with fairy lights, Chinese lanterns, loads of candles, turquoise blues and sea shells.
A 3 course meal and champagne followed with jazz music, fun and laughter.
We ended off this beautiful memory shared with loved ones and family, by dancing the night away.
This is our love story.. Memories that will be treasured for ever, filled with romance, love, joy, happiness, a day we wouldn't have wanted any other way.
Thank you for taking the time to read our love story.
