On 15th October 2016, we had the privilegde to exchange our vows in front of God, family and friends.
It was a beautiful day, typical Port Elizabeth wind, but the weather wasnt going to spoil our excitement.
Jaenine and i have been together for 5 years before taking the big step. The road was not easy, we had so many suppliers, venues and people not wanting to help a same sex couple, but we were lucky enough to have had stunning people, professional and kind angels, willing to make our dream come a reality.
We got married at a venue in Kragga Kamma, called Ukuphupha, a Xhosa word, meaning "to dream"
Our photographers were phenomenal and made us feel so special, the day was captured by Rachel Andrews and Lauren Claire Pinches. We were lucky enough to have met Rev. Wim Vermeulen, from Weddings without boundaries, he is such a special, humble man, i would definetly recommend his services. We had the best DJ in town, Shane from Occasion DJ'S, making sure that everyone had a jol. We were so blessed on this day and we would like to be an example to other same sex couples that if you really want something, you go for it, it doesnt matter how many times people want to take you down and make you negative, you must always believe and stay strong and love fiercely.
At the end of the day it is only about being happy and marrying your best friend, lover and life partner.
I wish we could have our day over, it was by far the highlight of my life and i wouldnt want to change anything <3
