We went on a road trip to tour the southern side of Namibia!
As we are both very adventurous people and both never been to Namibia we decided to plan this trip together.
We have been camping together since we've met and therefore decided to
The venue we chose made our wedding weekend the best weekend so far.
We got married in Chrissiesmeer at the farm called Florence Guest Farm.
More than a year ago we were camping in Bark lead Forever Resort just an hour from home (Nelspruit), we decided to make a day outing and visit this venue I saw on Facebook.
When we came there we just knew this is it.
The venue had everything we wanted and more
We were immediately in love with the fact that it is a weekend wedding venue
We did not have a planner.
I am an excel spreadsheet control freak and I gave my best effort to plan every single detail, I also made my best effort to keep to the proposed budget.
Everyone got "to do lists" from me and with the help of our parents, my bridesmaids and close family and friends the weekend and our wedding was a huge success
My husband loves cars or actually everything with an engine!
My grandfather had a classic old Mercedes-Benz which me and my sister basically grew up with as our grandparents always travelled in the yellow Merc to fetch us for the summer holidays, we even learned to drive in this old car.
My grandfather decided to give this car as a present for our wedding.
We therefore just had to make this our wedding car.
My husband spend most weekends before the wedding on this car to have everything perfect for our wedding day
Our wedding venue provided all the catering on the day.
The service was phenomenal and the food delicious!
All our guests enjoyed everything the venue had to offer from a gin bar after the ceremony up to a trio of proudly South African deserts.
The wedding cake was made at the venue by the help of my mother in law, sister in law, my own sister and my aunt
This was indeed a homemade mouth watering carrot cake, there was no take away' s left for our road trip which started the Sunday
All my stationery was designed by my sister's very talented best friend. Simone is the perfect person to have in your life while planning a wedding as she gets excited over every small detail. She designed everything so effortless and beyond expectations!
Our wedding invites were send out via a website I designed myself on wixit.com which made the admin regarding RSVP's a breeze
I played around for months through trial and error until the website was perfect to send out!
The first time we every danced together was at a dancing lesson in Grade 9.
The tradition of our high school is to only attend your first "sokkie" in Grade 10.
Therefore all the friends joined up to learn to dance before we attend our first school "sokkie"
Since then we have been dancing together for 10 years so we just opened the dance floor on our favroute song and everything else came naturally!
