We both had different back grounds as children. He lived on a farm most of his childhood years, and I am a city girl. So we tried to fuse the two themes together, and it worked perfectly! We married on my fathers farm, where we implemented the tractors, Grass Bales etc, and brought in glitter, lace and sparkly things! It worked perfectly together.
Our special moments would be, the brides maids and me made an almost cheerleader like entrance, with the bright red Mahindra Jeep. Also meeting my father, who is my hero, in front of the farm shed entrance. Looking into his baby blue eyes and seeing the grin on his face as we started the march down the aisle towards my future husband.
We had Ricky Faber attending our wedding as a family friend, and he sang to us as we opened the dance floor, the song was " God gave me you - Blake Shelton"
We enjoyed our honeymoon at Waterberg Game Lodge. And what an enjoyable honeymoon it was! There we had a luxurious chalet, with all the romantic trimmings. We enjoyed long nights with bush veld fire and red wine, and during the day we attended game drives and romantic strolls through mother nature and her beauty. It was a well deserved break for both of us, end we thoroughly enjoyed it.
We decided to get married in Limpopo, Bela-Bela, on my fathers own farm. We loved the bush veld atmosphere and we as a family had great memories there, why not create another one!
Most of our guests came from far and wide, but our brides maids and grooms men all stayed the night before the wedding, and also the actual night of our wedding day. We are a very close group of friends, and we enjoyed all the things that you could possibly do on a farm pre- and post wedding day!
We used MC Mulder photography for our photos. We strongly believe that it was fate that we met, and she managed to capture all the love and special moments for us, to cherish forever.
