How did your love story begin?


My crazy Friends dragged me to a music fest on September the 3rd 2015 , which i felt reluctant to go to , in a crowd full of people with loud music blaring , they introduced me to Vince which they met at a previous event, i remember thinking .. Damm he fine!!!

Tell us all about the proposal.


Vincent took my breath away when he proposed to me under a "marriage Tree " in Ardene Gardens on Saturday the 23rd of July 2017 .He stood under the tree and asked me if I knew why "they" call it a marriage Tree ? I said noooo but maybe oneday we could come here, hinting that we should get married there ,,, not knowing what he planned

Magical Moments


The most memorable moments will definitely be how he looked at me the whole time like i was an Angel from above that made me feel so special .

Another Highlight... staying dancing the night away like there was no tomorrow ...In that brief moment it
Felt like all our troubles went away and that our lives couldn't be any more perfect just as it is

The Honeymoon


We only had a few days leave so we booked two Nights in Robertson .

Had a ball ate and drank way too much
