Today we are sharing Mercia and Sean’s ‘Purple Love’ wedding. The happy couple tied the knot at the Moon and Sixpence Country Venue and DGR Photography captured their beautiful day. Congratulations to the newlyweds!
Lovebirds | How did you two meet?
We met on the MSC Simfonia on matric vac back in 2011. We dated through varsity and decided to get married once I graduated. A mutual friend introduced us, and we immediately fell in love.
I said Yes | How did the proposal go down?
We got engaged on the 5th of March 2016 at BlackHorse Brewery in Magaliesburg. I didn’t expect anything and thought it was just another date night. As the sun set we went for a walk in the valley when he got down on one knee. I was so excited and wanted to phone my mom, but he told me to wait, then our parents and my sisters surprised us and we had a big family dinner at the restaurant.
The Big Day | What was the most memorable moment of your wedding day?
Definitely the rain. It started raining on the Monday before the wedding and only stopped once we came out of the chapel. I was very nervous about it at first, but later it didn’t bother me anymore.
Describe your wedding day in one sentence.
A perfect, wet day where everything came together as I’ve always dreamt about.
Forever & Always | Any advice for future brides?
Start preparing as soon as possible, so you have nothing to do the week prior to the wedding, and don’t get stressed out about things you can’t control. At the reception, sit back, and enjoy your big day!
