We are in love with today’s beautiful do-it-yourself wedding! Junior and Nenane celebrated their union with an intimate farm-style wedding underneath the Outeniqua Mountains. Anina Harmse captured all the special moments. Enjoy!
Lovebirds | How did you two meet?
Junior asked mutual friends to help him with a date for their wedding and they gave him my number. We officially met a month before the wedding and the rest is history!
I said Yes | How did the proposal go down?
Junior took me on a horseback ride at Black Horse Trails in the Wilderness Forest and arranged a picnic at the halfway point next to a water stream. After some pre-celebration champagne ( for the nerves I guess! ) we went on a short stroll and on the way back he went on his knee and asked me to be his wife.
The Big Day | What was the most memorable moment of your wedding day?
A message from Junior with the sweetest words left me with a knot in my throat and close to tears;” Today our lives begin as one, I can’t wait for what the future holds! You make every second of my life so much better and easier. I promise I will stand by you through rough waters, support you and love you unconditionally. Never doubt it…”
Describe your wedding day in one sentence.
An intimate do-it-yourself South African farm wedding underneath the Outeniqua Mountains, blessed with rain, together with family and loved ones.
Forever & Always | Any advice for future brides?
Give yourself enough time to plan, arrange and decide on your style. Don’t be afraid to ask for assistance. This helped me to be so much more relaxed than I thought I’d be!
