Estelle Ciaglia

Married on Mar 26, 2016

When I lost my husband in 2013 due to cancer I could not even image myself with someone else again. Never did I realize that a very special man will capture my heart, become my best friend, soul mate and eventually my husband. My wedding day was everything I have ever imagined it would be.

On a rainy summer day we got married in a smallish boutique style hotel close to the Durbanville vineyards and magic forest in Oude Westhof with approximately 60 close friends/family. When I walked into our venue I was overwhelmed by the beautiful décor as I have left everything in the capable hands of my event planner, Odette. So to me my day was just as a surprise as for my guests and I have to say that it took my breath away!. I walked in on the beautiful lyrics of “My story, by Touch of Class. Although it was cold and rainy my husband surprised me with 2 beautiful horses he specifically arranged for the photo shoot.

We danced the night away … and like the song says, I climbed across the mountain tops, swam across the ocean blue, crossed all the lines ….. And I was made for you……. But these stories don’t mean anything, when you’ve got no one to tell them to. So it’s true,…. I was made for you.” So it is indeed a privilege to share my story of love with you.
