We met in 2005 and became really great friends and in 2006, we started dating, ten years down the line, Carl proposed on the 8th July 2016, while we were busy decorating a birthday cake for my sister (we bake together and even made our own wedding cake), and we got married on the 29th of October 2016. God worked in our hearts and changed our desires, we desired Him more, and then each other.
The day was full of laughter and excitement, so much excitement, that I even walked through the Chapel doors 5 minutes early!!
We didn't have money for a wedding, and somehow God provided, we are part of an amazing family and had close friends and family there. My cheeks were hurting by the end of the day, but still couldn't stop smiling from ear to ear. God gave me Carl, my best friend and now my husband, through all of our trails and good times, we know that God is always in control, and His plan came through, we could not be happier at this very moment!
(Our wedding cake 'melted' in the fridge at the venue, with it being so hot and all of the condensation, so the picture is the before picture, the only one we have of the full cake ;) )
