How did your love story begin?


27August2010 my friends and I went out for supper and afterwards to the club.I actually met him at a club called Mia Casa in Kuilsrivier....

Tell us all about the proposal.


Well.....We went to Pretoria for my cousin's wedding.So after the wedding we went to KFC for food, because we were hungry.He got out of the car and came back and said....

He knows that there will never be a perfect moment, because he was carrying the ring in his pocket so long and wanted to ask me on the aeroplane and then he saw I was too tired,so he wanted to ask me at my cousin's wedding but didn't want to steal their limelight....So... That's when he asked and I said yes... & afterwards he joked on Facebook about asking me if I wanted a Streetwise 2 , because it happened in front of KFC...

Magical Moments


The highlight of the day for me,was the beautiful flowers....when I walked in the reception area I couldn't believe my eyes...
Ilse at #Blomstories made our day.....For my husband- His highlight of the day was 'me'....He started of his speech by saying how he regretted not seeing me come down the isle,he only saw me when I was at the front...and how beautiful I looked.He also mentioned that by the looks of things I will age like red wine and not like expired milk....

The Reception and Entertainment

We actually wanted to take dance lessons,but unfortunately it wasn't possible.So one night my friend Elvyra Field showed us a couple of moves.We were supposed to practice at home and go back to show her,but we didn't have time to practice.So we only practiced the night before the wedding.I was a bit sceptical about my husband,but luckily for me I had some moves.....
