Magical Moments

 

Our Wedding was truly an amazing day, it was completely who we are and therefore the significance of the day truly was highlighted. A really memorable moment was the weather ... every bride getting married out side desires a sunny day, however as I was arriving I could feel a few rain drops every few seconds.

I looked up and there is one dark cloud above us. My amazing bridesmaids and I didn't get our selves caught up about it.

I started to make my way down the aisle, my step dad walked me half way and handed me over to my dad ... my dad walked me to Neil (my husband to be) and handed me over. The ceremony was almost done and that cloud was still hanging above us, the drips of rain had stopped and the moment Neil and I said "I DO" ... the sun had beamed through that cloud and all you could see were rays of sunshine. A little bit later a huge thunderstorm was approaching whilst Neil and I took photo's, we were watching our friends and family from a distance being blown by the wind ... amazingly where we were there was absolutely no wind, no dark clouds, only an amazing sunset. As we were walking to the reception all we could see was these dark clouds approach, one huge thunderstorm. Amazingly the thunderstorm quickly diverted and as we stood on the porch of the reception in the far distance you could see the storm and loads of lighting that came with it. As the sun went down and we enjoyed the presence of friends and family there wasn't a cloud in the sky.

The Honeymoon

 

Cape Town, we stayed in Paarl for our entire honeymoon. We were significantly blessed through Family Friends to stay in an amazing Hotel, in Franschhoek. We did the wine tram, and would take a few day trips through out Cape Town.
