Lloyd and I made our vows to each other in the place I grew up and love most in the world, the Sunday's River Valley in the Eastern Cape. The ceremony and reception were held at Avoca, a family friend's citrus farm overlooking the Sunday's River. As I walked down the aisle with our family and friends looking on, a view of the citrus orchards in the background and my future husband waiting for me at the other end, my heart just filled up with love and happiness, a truly magical moment.
That set the tone for the rest of the day. It was such a warm, joyous occasion. We just wanted everyone to have a great time while celebrating with us. So we went for good, local food (and plenty of it), excellent South African wines and champagnes and a live singer to make sure the party went on late into the night. And I think we succeeded. Everyone had a great time, especially Lloyd and I. The day was everything we hoped it would be and more. An incredible start to married life.
