Our love story began at a party back on new years ever, 31 December 2007, after a decade of unwaivering love towards one another, the first five years, while Nick was still studying, i spent almost every weekend driving to muizenberg and back to big bay to see the man of my dreams. My hero. My honey bear. We then lived together for five years, really learning for the first real time that we are two completely different individuals and had to learn to compromise (as a marriage needs compromise and understanding in order to survive, that, and alot of love!) We are here, three months since our wedding and it still gives me chills just thinking about it and how perfect eveything went. Not one thing went wrong and considering we had a 2 year old nephew and a 3 year old spaniel as part of the ceremony, that is kind of a miracle. Even ziggy, our spaniel, barked at all the RIGHT times. Our pictures and video capture how true our love for one another is, how much respect we have for one another and the ability we have to communicate without words. I truly found the man that every girls dreams about. How lucky am I? The luckiest and i can only imagine the adventures that are out there waiting for us to conquer together. Just love, always
The whole day was a highlight from start to finish. We danced till our feet fell off. Everyone and everything was perfection with a capital P!!

My look was very much inspired by lana del rey, who i quoted in my vows 'oh that grace, oh that body, oh that face, it makes me want to party, he's my love, he makes me shine, like diamonds' from her song, young and beautiful. This was also our first dance song so it had special meaning only we would understand. My dress was pure white satin and my accessories were burgundy, as was the theme of our winter wedding.
