Izel Hattingh (Pieters)

Izel Hattingh

Married on Feb 20, 2016

I have prayed and patiently waited for my husband for a long time. I knew that God had someone for me and that he would be the perfect one for me.

We started our new lives together with a majestic Magaliesberg wedding at Cussonia Crest Venue. With a stoned build chapel and hall and beautiful gardens we had an unforgettable wedding.

The presence of God was tangible and the day was filled with fun, peace, joy and love.

The theme of our wedding was trees as they represent life & growth.

While our pictures were taken at the historic Vygelkraal ruins, with old Wild Fig trees, our guests could enjoy pre-drinks & starters. They kept themselves busy with a few fun-filled lawn games. As we could hear the joy and laughter from a distance, we knew that they were having great fun.

The roses and fairy lights at the reception created a romantic atmosphere and guests were enjoying delicious food, music, dancing and fellowship throughout the evening.

We named our tables love, peace, joy, hope, dream, inspiration etc. so our prayer for our guests was to be filled with that. We also gave each couple a small 1m tree as a thank you gift. I didn’t just want a normal wedding; everything had to be different and special.

Psalm 1 says “He shall be like a tree Planted by the rivers of water, That brings forth fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not wither: And whatever he does shall prosper.”

I can truly say our faith is rooted in God. Our love for God and each other will grow stronger each day and whatever comes our way will prosper. I am married to my best friend and I will choose him over and over again.
