Greg and I met at school when we were only 7 years old! After being friends for over 20 years we realized we had feelings for one another and decided to persue a very slow and cautious courtship. After a few months of coffee dates, walks on the beach and sneaky date nights in the week,we fell in love.
Thereafter we describe our relationship as if it were a garden! A place of beauty, vulnerability and peace, a place where we can be ourselves and accept and love one another perfectly in this garden. Working hard at planting the right seeds and nurturing them so that in the end we have something spectacular to marvel over!
We are so proud of our walk and our journey as a couple and have grown to love, adore and respect eachother unconditionally! Our wedding day was an image of this garden. We chose the perfect venue (Embassy Hill in Constantia) to encompass the feel and tone we wanted to set, and it all came together perfectly! From the flowers to the layout to the speeches, everything was centered around our perfect garden!
We had an incredible team who worked very hard at pulling everything together so quickly, as we were only engaged for 4 months! Okasie (florists) grasped the essence of our theme so well and executed this beautifully on the day. Something different (lighting) lit up our reception area so perfectly that everything just glowed. Scape events (furniture, decor and styling) setup the most exquisite lounge areas and cocktail seating for the pre dinner, dinner area and the ceremony area. Jenni Elizabeth (photographer) captured every tiny moment so well and just her presence on the day was warming. Andre from Visid Blue (videographer) captured every angle of our wedding and we are very excited to see the footage
It was all honestly just perfect, every minute was experienced, embraced and adored! I look back on this day every day and smile. The joy it has brought Greg and I as well as our families is indescribable!
