On 9 April 2016 I married my best friend and love of my life, Gerrit Pretorius.
After a four year long distance relationship, we couldn't wait for this day! The day started with a breakfast at La Maision DeVille for the men and at our wedding venue, Riverside Country Estate for the ladies.
It was a morning filled with fun and laughter as our hair and make-up was done. Clarika Wahl from Clarika Wahl Photography was there to capture every single moment.
When it was time for me to step into my beautiful dress made by Over the Moon Bridal and Evening Wear, reality set in. I couldn't wait to see my soon to be husband.
Before I entered the church, a recording I made for him played which had everyone in tears. As I walked down the isle, all I could see was him!
After the ceremony cocktails and canapes were served and guests entertained themselves with the photo booth while we were taking pictures.
Tracy from Riverside Country Estate and her team really outdid themselves with the decor, food and flowers.We had the most beautiful and convivial reception and people are still talking about the delicious food!
When my husband and I started planning our big day a year before, our biggest wish was to make our wedding something all our family and friends could enjoy with us and remember forever. It turned out to be that and so much more!
What a privilege to be married to your best friend and love of your life!
