Adrene and Gustav’s Wedding story is a traditional boy meets girl love story. Their wedding follows suit with the bride in a beautifully classic gown and floral arrangements featuring proteas. The bridesmaids and groomsmen’s muted grey dresses and attire work well and complement the bride and groom.
Lovebirds | How did you two meet?
We met at a 21st birthday party. I was new in town. Long story short, we talked the entire night. He asked for my number, the next day was our first date. Eight years later we were married!
I Said Yes | How did the proposal go down?
Gustav proposed on Clifton beach in Cape Town. I’ve always loved Cape Town, for me there was no better place. What made it so special was that it was completely unexpected. We went to the beach in the morning, as we were walking I thought, Where’s Gustav?” I turned around and found him on one knee. He had my ring engraved, it says: My life, My love, My friend. I cried so much I could even reply. I just grabbed the ring and kissed him.
The Big Day | Tell us the most memorable moment of your wedding day?People always say your wedding is the best day ever and it’s true. There is no other moment in time, where all your family and friends surround you. There is so much love! The most memorable moment was receiving Gustav’s letter to me, and his tears! The world stopped for a moment and it is just the two of us in the presence of our Lord.
I Quote | Describe your wedding day in one sentence

Forever & Always | Any advice for future brides?
Be calm, and take it all in. So many brides get caught up in all the details and all the fluff that goes with a wedding. Remember what the day is all about, take it all in and enjoy every moment.
