How did your love story begin?


We met in High school and couldn't stand each other. Then we became friends and that grew to best of friends. We faced a lot of challenges and still he stayed by my side. One day he said we have a choice to either date or have to change our friendship style. I couldn't imagine life with out him.

Tell us all about the proposal.


He did the message at the evening service, at our church. Afterwards he needed a love prop. He came and got me and then had our song play, with a slide show of our story. At the end it said "but the one thing I have never liked about you ... your surname ... can I change it?"

Magical Moments

Spending time with our guests and enjoying the atmosphere.

My Special Day

My wedding look was elegance but natural. My hair was platted on one side with a bunch and few loose strands. My makeup was done to look natural. The dress was made by my mom, mainly with a lace look.

The Venue

We got married at our church, Christian Heritage Church and then had our reception at Kleinvallei.

My Bridal Beauty Regime

I tried to be careful of what I put on my face and kept up with my exercises.

Wedding Elements

The decor was very rustic, not a lot of flowers but your more rustic looking flowers.
