Married on Jun 17, 2017 in Gauteng

The van der Merwe Wedding

On the 17th of June 2017, it began with no stress, listening to "Ellie Goulding - Something in the way you move" on my way to the Buitengeluk venue where the first day of the rest of my life will begin.
It got a little busy at the reception hall where my mom, dad, aunt and everyone helped with setting up of the tables. Buitengeluk helped with most of the setting up, fortunately :)

Nerves built when all the guests were finally at the venue and I was called to the chapel. Having a perfect Ceremony, and heartfelt preach, we exited the chapel where everyone welcomed the new Van Der Merwe couple by throwing popcorn as confetti. One popcorn piece managed to get in my dress and danced the whole night with me. From the Chapel we had to hurry to cut the cake and then off to our photos, because of the sun that was already setting (17h00) we did not have much time to waste to get our perfect photos.

The whole night went perfect - everyone knew what they need to do, everyone had fun, especially at the photobooth. The food was fantastic, the music great! So many people stayed until the end (00h00). I could not have asked for a better wedding day.

So, a big THANKS to the venue Buitengeluk Fourways that hosted our perfect day, and our Photographer JC Crafford for capturing our special day forever.
