Today’s wedding was submitted by Gingerale Photography. The dashing groom and his beautiful bride’s special day took place at the Nutcracker Country Retreat and we are absolutely in love with the natural decor they’ve incorporated. Congratulations, Jacques and Anel!
Lovebirds | How did you two meet?
We actually met on the internet many years ago and dated for a very short time before Jacques left for America to work. But through out we kept a very good friendship. Then as the time went passed we realized it was the real thing. We loved eachother.
I said Yes | How did the proposal go down?
We were taking photos in a veld, and in the one shot while I waited for Jacques to run back to me in time, he suddenly went down on one knee and proposed. I cried a lot. the whole thing was recorded, thats why he took so long…
The Big Day | What was the most memorable moment of your wedding day?
Everything was perfect during the whole day, but was truly special for us was when the whole reception left after midnight we took a slow walk to our room which was set beautifully with flowers and candles, we climbed into a piping hot bath and fell asleep almost instantly… in that moment we both burned arm and head hair in the candles haha. We quickly got out and climbed into bed, fell asleep in eachothers arms, very much loved, dead tired and content with a few missing hairs.
