Magical Moments


As rain has been predicted for the day of the wedding, I wasn't too sure how it would turn out. But I woke up to a beautiful, sunny day. Another highlight definite highlight was arriving at the church, to find all my loved ones there to witness our nuptials. The reception hall was another one: strings of fairy lights, white chiffon drapes with gold accents. Simply magnificent. The Food and Wine was fabulous. The cake an absolute masterpiece. The cherry? Speaking to my sister and her family all the way from Belgium via a live video call.

The Honeymoon


Unfortunately, we have yet to go on Honeymoon as we both needed to work.

My Captured Moments

The relationship we shared with my photographer was a happenstance of fate. My photographer happened to have been chatting to my cousin when he mentioned what he does and let's just say that it all fell into place. We did not make use of an official photo booth however we had props that the guests could take their own photos in their own capacity. My photographer was Cyril van Wyk.

The party lasted until the early hours of the morning, almost until the sun rose. We had an amazing reception surrounded by loved ones who celebrated our union. We did not have dance lessons however danced our first dance to Savage Garden Truly Madly Deeply which sums up exactly our relationship perfectly. Our lighting was by Bru lighting. Our DJ was Tauq who kept the party going and could read the crowd without fault.
