Don’t believe in love at first sight? Kerri-Lee and Phillip will definitely change your heart with their sweet story. The handsome young couple were married at Groen Rivier and captured beautifully by Adele Kloppers Photography.
Lovebirds | How did you two meet?
We met through mutual friends on a Sunday afternoon outing in February 2012. There was an immediate attraction and spent the entire afternoon and evening chatting. At the end of the evening Philip asked for my number and invited me out to dinner that Friday. We have been together ever since.
I said Yes | How did the proposal go down?
Philip took me out for a spontaneous dinner and after the meal he asked me to marry him. I said yes. After the initial shock and phone calls, we then went to meet our friends to celebrate. It was a truely spectacular evening filled with love and happiness shared with our friends.
The Big Day | Tell us the most memorable moment of your wedding day?
For me it was the little things that made our day unique for us; like the Star Wars boutonnières that Philip and the groomsmen wore, Philip and the groomsmen walking down the aisle to the theme song of Top Gun, Danger Zone, the sand unity ceremony which we included during our vows, the burger bar we had as our main course and mostly to be able to share our day with all our family and friends.
I Quote | Describe in one sentence your wedding day
It was the perfect day, a true reflection of us and our love for each other.
Forever & Always | Any advice for future brides
It is your day, so give yourself the luxury of splurging on atleast one “unnecessary must have item”, even if no one notices it on the wedding day, you will notice it and it will make your day really feel like your day. For me, it was the gold cutlery.
