I have loved the same man since I was 15 years old. That’s around the age that a girl really starts dreaming about her wedding day. I consider myself one of the lucky ones as I had only ever dreamed of one face waiting at the front of the aisle for me, and that’s exactly who I got. I got my once in a lifetime love. I got my person.
We got married at Shepstone Gardens – a hidden gem in the heart of Joburg. The ceremony was under a beautiful glass marquee in the gardens and it was everything I had dreamed it would be. Making my way down the aisle, guests whispering sweet words to me as I walked past them and towards the man of my dreams was an out of this world experience. Watching my groom, standing tall and with tears in his eyes was so special and a picture I will never forget.
Our reception moved indoors that evening and a real highlight for us was walking into the reception hall with our parents and all the people we love most standing and cheering as we entered as Mr & Mrs Visser. In memory of my angel-mom, I had a heart cut from her gown (my something blue) sewn onto the inside of my dress...as close to my heart as possible.
We really did have the wedding of our dreams and I am so looking forward to the rest of my life with this wonderful person I now call Husband.
