Today we are proud to feature this wedding by Gingerale Photography. Jacques and Marisa said their “I do’s” at the Poortjie Hall in Heidelberg. We love how well the gorgeous décor suits the venue, and her dress is absolutely exquisite.
Congratulations you two, may married life be everything you dreamed it would be!
Lovebirds | How did you two meet?
Jacques and I met on campus 7 years ago where we were introduced by a mutual friend. We obviously had no idea then that we’d be walking down the isle in years to come. It’s been an amazing journey and I am truly privileged to call this amazing man my husband!
I said Yes | How did the proposal go down?
We were at my parents holiday home for a few days in April, we had struggled to get the beach buggy started and so I was scared to go for a drive in case we got stuck next to the road. Eventually he got it running, he called to say that we won’t be long but we needed to go for a drive so the battery can charge a bit. On our way he made jokes about not having brakes and no petrol so I was getting a little irritated, we parked and made our way down to the beach where we had this beautiful view of the sunset, he casually mentioned that he would love to go on holiday with me forever and asked me to marry him!
The Big Day | Tell us the most memorable moment of your wedding day?
Without a doubt the moment I walked down the isle and saw how emotional my future husband was, at that moment I realised THIS was the feeling I wish every girl had the opportunity to feel when walking down the isle. I now have a memory and moment that will forever be etched in my mind.

Up to this point in our lives, the most unforgettable & perfect day!
Forever & Always | Any advice for future brides
Don’t get caught up in the hype of it all and never lose sight of what this special day is all about!
I would add though that great food, music and the choice of photographers are probably the most important decisions you’ll make for this special day.
