Alison Eekhout

Married on Sep 23, 2017 in Eastern Cape

Welcome to our True love story. It was 26th December 2015 I was late for a meeting, I ran into the room and there she was with her blonde hair and blue/hazel eyes staring at me and my heart lit up with just joy and happiness. I gave her a smile and that is where it all started, her thoughts were ” Hier kom moeilikheid”. She smiled back and that was just the start too our love story. I lived in another town so it was only till the January of 2016 that we went on our first date. WOW she was incredible, perfect in every way, I then went home. Then it was time for our 2nd date the end of January, from that moment I never went back home because I had found my home with my beautiful future wife. We have had an amazing journey and so many more to follow. I asked her to marry me on the 23rd September 2016 in St Francis, where as you guessed she said YES and then the planning started.
