Today’s love story can be compared to a Hollywood script from a  romantic movie. We are glad Real Simple Photography is sharing this amazing wedding with us today. The couple is giving us a lovely insight of their very special day!

I Propose | Elaborate on how the two of you met

We have been neighbours for almost 20 years. The real girl/guy next door. After school we started going out and after 7 years, De Wet proposed to me at the top of a small mountain pass overlooking a valley full of proteas and fynbos.

Bride & Prejudice | Express some memorable experiences you had during the planning

We knew from the start that we wanted to get married on De Wet’s family farm, Eenuurkop. The spot for the ceremony was easy, the “tree nursery” with a perfect view of the mountain. The only problem we had was where to have the reception. After a bit of persuasion to get everyone on board, we were able to use the new addition to one of the outbuildings. As they were not yet finished with construction, everyone had to pull together to get everything finished and ready for our big day. Best part,  we could paint and put up lights anywhere we wanted! We did as much as we had time, for ourselves and enjoyed every minute

My Fair Wedding | Describe an event that you feel was unique

The venue was very unique.  It had never been used before and will probably never will be again! Just before I went around the corner to start walking down the isle, a gust of wind grabbed my veil and it flew up to the roof and only just made it down.

Don’t Tell The Bride | Reveal something that happened behind the scenes

2 weeks before our big day, my husband had an accident where a grinder fell on his foot and he had to have emergency surgery to repair the tendons that were cut off. Initially we even considered postponing the wedding, but we decided that nothing would ruin our perfect day, that we have been planning for so long, even though there was the possibility that De Wet would be on crutches. Luckily that was not necessary, although De Wet had a big, swollen and painful foot at the end of the night because he danced with his bride on their wedding day.After the foot drama, we decided to take things as they come. A lots of things worked out differently than we planned, but we were getting married and nothing could ruin our perfect day!
