Chris and I started dating in 2010 and on 13 February 2015 Chris asked me to share forever with him. Without a doubt or a blink of an eye I said YES! A month later we found our perfect wedding venue (Florence guest farm, located in the center of the Lake District in a small town called Chrissiesmeer), a venue that suited and fulfilled our every need to make our dream day a reality. The wedding date was booked and the exciting time of planning started! As the months of planning progressed, our love for each other only grew stronger and deeper. It was a wild, fun, busy, crazy journey that I will do it all over again with a smile. From the smallest décor detail to the fun dancing moves we choreographed ourselves, nothing was getting in our way of our special day.

The early morning air of 1 October 2016 was filled with light rain and fog, covering the horizon of the beautiful farm lands. There and then our marriage was blessed already. The moment the old wooden doors in the forest opened, with my dad holding me tight, my wedding song, “I loved you for a thousand years”, filled the cool but loving atmosphere and our eyes locked. Immediately happy tears covered my cheeks …. Pure happiness, excitement, amazement. We never felt more blessed to share such a big day with all our family and friends. We vowed our eternal love before God and our hearts became one the moment we said “I do". We had a feast in an old barn that was transformed into an elegant chandelier-and-stone setting with a touch of French flair. We created the most memorable moments that included dancing, laughing, happy tears and lots of fun. We celebrated until dawn and the honeymoon phase began and never ended. We are best friends, soul mates, my forever person, Chris.
