Marizelle Botma

Married on Feb 6, 2016 in Northern Cape

Our special wedding day

We got married on 6th February 2016 at Broadwater River Estate against the Vaal river in the Northern Cape. I met my husband in High School and we were together for 9 years before we got married, through High School, University and a lot of distance we worked hard to make it through everything.

A month before our wedding, the owner of the farm my husband rented said that he would not be able to rent the farm anymore. At that stage we had no house to live in after our marriage and my husband had to find another job. The wedding bills still needed to be paid. Luckily we had our parents and an awesome God! We started praying for a job for my husband and a house, and everything fell into place two weeks before our wedding. He got a job and we got a house to live in for free on the farm. During this time we realized that no matter what we are going through, God is always there for us.

It was truly a magical day that will stay with me for the rest of my life. It was special, because we had all our friends and family, who shared it with us. It was everything I ever dreamed of, especially my wedding cake. We praise God for what He did for us and the privilege He gave us to get married and share a peace of the love He has for us, with one another.

We hope our story mean something for someone.
