Married on Mar 21, 2015

For Valentines day 2014 Bertus surprise me with flight tickets to Mauritius where we got engaged 4 days later on the beach under the stars with a grand dinner and Moët champagne. It was absolutely the most perfect days of my life and I couldn't think it was possible to be happier than that week. That was the 21st of March 2015 when I got to marry my best friend. We made a weekend of our wedding as our families and friends were flying in from Australia and Cape Town. On the Friday evening we had dinner at L'Aquila our venue with our parents and close family which just settled the nerves and we could enjoy the wedding atmosphere without the rush of the day. The Saturday morning we had all breakfast together, which afterwards I had a "milk" bath to relax and was amazing. All our suppliers was on time and knew exactly what they had to do, which made the day such a pleasure and we could truly just enjoy our wedding day. We had our photos taken before the ceremony which included our 2 Basset Hounds. The ceremony was beautiful and which Bertus did his speech afterwards while we where still in the chapel, and spoken the most beautiful words which made me feel like the most beautiful bride there ever was. We didn't follow tradition and cut our "cheese cake" after we left the chapel which the guests could enjoy while we had our last photos taken with family. The food was out of this world and we truly enjoyed all of it. Our first dance was Ed Sheeran's Thinking out Loud which was perfect and our dance lessons (or frustrations as I have 2 left feet) was so worth it, and our grand finale was a winner with Bertus dipping me to the floor. Everything about this day was wonderful and just perfect. I couldn't have married a better person and know we will share our love for ever.
