Magical Moments


Thirty years was a long time to wait for this day, but in the end we had God's blessings - and He did and is still blessing us

The Honeymoon


I knew we would sleep over somewhere for the wedding night, but to my surprise my husband booked us in for a week at Marloth Park - a huge surprise

My Special Day

He only gave me 2 weeks to arrange our wedding. I asked God's help and everything fell into place. Mira Kleynhans - whom I met through a mutual friend - borrowed me the dress, our wedding cake was a present from Mira as well ! I decided not to have a specific look, except the color scheme was different pastell colors. My bouquet I made myself. We never got engaged, but he proposed with an emerald earring-and-chain set.

The Venue

The wedding as well as the venue took place at the Henley-on-Klip Retirement Village, with a great view !

My Bridal Beauty Regime

No special treatment prior to the wedding. The day before my nails was done and on our wedding day I just decided to have my make-up and hair done at the same place as my nails - Brainwaves in Meyerton

Wedding Elements

A lady I met through a friend - Mariette Grobler - did our venue. I gave her some decorations I made prior and she used decor from a previous wedding she planned. The food my husband decided must be Vegetable soup with freshly baked bread from Progress bakery in Three Rivers with sweet dumplings for dessert - and there you have it - a wedding that God arranged, because without His help it wouldn't have been a success!

Beautiful Bridesmaids

It wasn't either's first wedding thus we didn't want bridesmaids, etc, but my sister-in-law from Secunda helped me with my dress

Marriage Officer

Our pastor at Lede in Christus church Duncanville (VEREENIGING) Pastoor Shawn Jansen van Rensburg was our marriage officer - what a lovely sermon

My Captured Moments

A friend of ours took our pictures - tannie Sannie Reiners

The Wedding Planner

No planner used - I planned everything myself in only 2 weeks - together with lots of prayers

Wedding Transport

My brother, Christo Nelson, from Secunda was my transport and he also walked me down the isle

Food & Cake

The food and venue was done by Mariette Grobler with the help of her husband. Our cake was a present from Mira Kleynhans

The Reception and Entertainment

I saved the music on a memory stick and my sister-in-law, Lizette Nelson, played it in their usb-speaker.
