Natalie Venter

Married on Feb 25, 2017 in Gauteng

I am very lucky to have had the honour of marring my best friend and soul mate. Most would say we have complete opposed characters but together we are an unstoppable team that supports one another in every situation.

Our big day happened 10 years and one month after we started dating in 2007. We decided to finish our studies before we would get married.
So on the 25 of Feb we tied the knot at De Hoek Country Lodge in Heidelberg, with a rustic and relaxed feel.

After 2 weeks of constant rain we had the perfect day with only 3 drops of rain as I walked into the chapel.

We did most of the décor ourselves (with the help of the entourage) including the flowers and bouquet.
There were two wedding cakes, one a rice crispy cake (sweet for me) an a biltong tower cake (salty for him).
On the tables we placed empty wine bottles with the bottom cut off and a string of fairy lights inside.
We were so excited to share this special day with all our friends and family and wanted to make sure they had an awesome night, and they sure did as some only went to bed after 2am.

I can truly say our day went off without a hitch and I am so in love with my husband Vian.
