Jeanine van Velden

Married on Mar 26, 2016 in Gauteng

Our wedding was an absolute dream come true and the most fun we have ever had!
The navy and gold glitter colour scheme had all the glamour I associate with such a special event. Small personal touches, like my husband's handwritten place cards and the homemade wedding favours, made the night extra special. Our wedding was a real team effort and I will forever be grateful to everyone who contributed their time and skills to help make everything amazing.

The main focus was giving all our guests a good time. To me, that meant good food, wine and beer; short speeches; lots of dancing and taking the time to chat to everyone individually (even if only for a minute or two). Our cocktail hour also offered the guests the opportunity to pose for a caricature they could take home.

Our ceremony was very traditional and formal with all the pomp and circumstance one comes to expect at weddings. Standing in front of the church doors waiting to walk down the aisle, remains the most vivid memory I have of the whole day. I will treasure the love I felt at that moment for the rest of my life.
