How did this story begin?
We met by a lagoon by the light of a bonfire. Quinton first heard my voice and I first saw him him dancing.
When Quinton decided to propose, he took me to the beach front where we had our first date. The first time we went out, Quinton didn’t realize it was a date. This time, it was me who was surprised!
Tell us about the style of your wedding, your dress and the story behind the rings.
Family was the most important element of our wedding at Diemersfontein Wedding Venue. The most important thing was that all our guests had fun – and the smiles all round by the end of the night were the best thing we could have hoped for!!
My mom made my dress with the most amount of love. She bought the lace for the bodice in Amsterdam! In regards to the rings, Quinton consulted with my best friend on the design of my engagement ring! It’s one of a kind!
Our wedding rings reflect our individual personalities – Quinton’s being charcoal Tungsten and mine matching my rose gold engagement ring.
What was the most memorable moment of the day?
Giggling at the pulpit. We couldn’t help ourselves – it was the craziest, most unbelievable moment sitting there with each other.
How did you experience your Photographer’s services?
When we finished our couple’s portraits with some time to spare, Landi from Organictales said “Wait, before we go… Do you see that light there? You up for a last few extra photos on that hill?“
Quinton said to me: “I absolutely love that she’s making so much effort!“
We were in such good hands for the whole entire experience.
Any advice to other couples still in the planning process? What was the most difficult and what really helped?
Make sure that you both have the most fun!
What really helped was our parents, specifically Nicole‘s mom, who made so much effort over the course of the year to make sure everything was perfect. We couldn’t have done any of this without them.
Tell us about the Honeymoon!!
We opted for a mini-moon in Simonstown, as we both needed to be back at work the week after the wedding. It was spectacular – we saw some penguins, ate some amazing seafood and really just enjoyed each other’s company.
