Married on Feb 4, 2017 in Free State

Fairytale that came to life

We got married on the 4th of February 2017 at the beautiful Pont De Val located on the Vaal river. Our ceremony was absolutely breathtaking and filled with so many heartfelt emotions. I walked in to "canon in D" played on the piano since it is a very special song to my husband. He once told me, "I've always wanted to play this song on my wedding day when I know that I have found the love of my life". Our ceremony and reception was shared with our most loved family and friends. My husbands three daughters were my bridesmaids and one of them was my maid of honour. This made the wedding planning just so much more special to us. All was so enchantingly spectacular and magical. Our wedding theme was classic bohemian. The reception speeches made grown men cry and it was definitely a wedding all our guests still talk about. I know I have married the love of my life, I knew he was the man for me when I saw him for the first time four years ago. We knew the day that we saw each other for the first time that we had such a strong connection that not even the universe could fight it. Our souls were wired to be together forever. Marriage is more than a ring you give someone, it is a lifetime commitment with the person you want to share forever with. It's your reward saying that you have conquered the world together. We are absolutely blessed with a beautiful marraige and with each other. I can't thank God enough. My husband is my pillar of strength, best friend, lover, soul mate and the love of my life. He is home. We've been told that we've made people believe in love again, I mean, we also have made each other believe in love again. True love is eternal even after your physical body has left left this Earth. Soulmates always find each other. We knew our souls were home again.
My wedding dress is from Bridal Wardrobe, the Enzoani collection, and Nicole Amory did my make up for my special day. Everything was perfect. ❤
