Married on Jun 25, 2016 in Western Cape

Francois and I met way back in 2001 when we were both members of the Stellenbosch University Choir. After dating for a short while, we broke up as I was a first year student and Francois has already started working. Throughout the years, we've kept in touch thanks to our mutual live for dancing and choral music. When Francois needed a date for a New Year's Eve dance in 2011, I was thrilled to join him. And, as they say, the rest is history...
Francois planned an exclusive hot air balloon ride, because he knew that I wanted our engagement to be a private and intimate occasion. After being postponed twice due to bad weather, we got to go at last. The only problem was that it wasn't exclusive anymore. So, early on the morning of 19 April, he popped the question just as I was waking up. The most beautiful and perfect ring, which included two diamonds from his mother's engagement ring, was tied to our dad's collar. And so we spent our first moments as an engaged couple flying 1km in the air with breathtaking views over the Cape Town area.
The wedding arrangements soon started. I could not have asked for a better day. Many times throughout the evening, we found ourselves wondering when something will go wrong. We've had so many close friends helping on our special day. I had the privilege of a friend remaking my mom's wedding dress for our special day. Francois' childhood friend, Leon Oosthuizen, took the most breathtaking photos. Another friend and childhood neighbour of Francois, was the minister who wed us with such a special message. And, of course, we could not have a wedding without having a choir singing, so our friends got together and sang a very special musical composition which was composed especially for us.
We will forever remember this very special day in our lives and treasure all the beautiful memories made.
