Married on Nov 11, 2016 in Gauteng

{Our Wedding Story}

As you know... Every love story starts the same way... meet through friends...fall in love.. date a while and finally say the big words... "I Do"

Our love story is not very different, but I can tell you one things...God gave us to each other.
I'm not going to go into detail on how everything went, but the highlights will be more than enough :)

We got engaged by The heads in Knysna on 20.12.2015. It was picture perfect, although he was so nervous that he did forget to get on his knees.. hehe... it was cute tho! We had a lovely Christmas holiday and celebrated the engagement with our loved ones.

After the holidays our wedding planning started. Moon & Sixpence in Muldersdrift was our second venue we looked at and instantly fell in love with the place. After that everything just fell into place and without our parents and God we couldn't have done this alone!

On our Wedding day {11.11.2016} there was a 90% of thunderstorms and heavy rain... and you know what... It was POURING DOWN!! I wasn't upset or worried, I saw this as this biggest blessing and my husband knows that I absolutely love the rain. It makes me calm and puts me in my happy place. We enjoyed the rain while we were getting ready (trust me with my bridesmaids and his groomsmen there will never be a dull moment... hehe... they were amazing!!) and as God always makes your day even better, the rain stopped 2 ours before and after the ceremony just enough time for us to take our gorgeous photos and enter the reception hall! Everyone knows that rain is a blessing on your wedding day ;)
Just to add... our photographers were absolutely amazing! They make you feel as if you have known them for years.. gorgeous photos and very professional service.

As we got ready to enter the ceremony hall we both knew this...
From this day forward, you shall not walk alone.
My heart will be your shelter, and my arms will be your home.

What more do you want if someone makes you that promise in front of God, your family and your friends.
We were honored by the Apostle who married us, for us that was the biggest blessing of all!

After that... let's say that we know how to celebrate and have a good time with some treasured family, friends, good food and a DJ who got everyone on their feet.

We never got a chance to thank you everyone personally, but deep down in their hearts they know that we adore them and are truly thankful to have them as part of their lives!

I also want to thank my Husband, you gave me everything my heart desired and made sure that we had the special day we both imagined! Thank you for loving me like you do!... I love you so much!
