We are so excited to share this gorgeous real wedding with you by The Fig Photography! The pair had their wedding at Joy UnspeakableJoy Unspeakable on the outskirts of Pretoria. We still adore rustic-themed weddings!
Lovebirds | How did you two meet?
Stefan : “We met at a camp close to the Kruger National Park. Truth is that I told one friend after meeting her that I would like to marry her one day.”
I said Yes | How did the proposal go down?
Illona : “Proposal was awesome, Stefan woke early that Saturday morning to go up a mountain close to where we stay, he then prepared a picnic, drove back home and woke me up. The fact that it was so early made me very confused. He told me that we were going for picnic, as the sun came out over Pretoria he proposed .. And I said yes!”
The Big Day | What was the most memorable moment of your wedding day?
Illona : “It was raining and there was a very nice deck on the dam. So I picked up my wedding dress and ran through the ran and it was very romantic. It was cold, so he had to hold me tighter. Everyone stressed about the rain, but for the two of us it was magical and symbolic.”
Describe your wedding day in one sentence
