In March 2020 our President locked down the country due to a pandemic. Our wedding was scheduled 13 June 2020 and Michael and myself were hopeful that, by then, everything will be back to normal. Unfortunately, we came to the realisation that, like so many others, our wedding will have to be postponed. Our venue and photographer were extremely helpful in assisting to reschedule for 9 January 2021. In December, just after Christmas, the President made another announcement: another lockdown; no public gatherings, curfew of 10pm... we were devastated. The following morning Jana from Slipperfields phoned us to see where our heads were at. We were determined to still get married, in their beautiful chapel, but with closest family only. Our service providers were all still keen to assist, with all Covid-19 protocols in place. Jana made our intimate ceremony so special! The decor was exactly what I had imagined! We were not able to have a traditional reception in January, but we plan to do so at Slipperfields in October. Another opportunity to dress up again!
Due to Covid-19, we had to cancel our original trip to Kata beach, Thailand, but opted for a local destination instead. We booked a few nights in the Franschhoek Boutique Hotel, but minus the wine tram (January 2021).
Slipperfields Farm Style venue, just outside Gqeberha. As our wedding was in January, we did not have many guests. Once we are able to host our wedding reception at Slipperfields in October, I'm sure many of our guests will stay the night.

Only my maid of honour was able to join us for the intimate ceremony. She wore a long, flowy Navy dress from Truworths.
