Llewellyn & Sandra had a beautiful and unique Kimberley Wedding reception. Read their story below:
How did you meet and what drew you to each other?
We actually met at Scarlet Room, a small intimate lounge bar in Bloemfontein. It was complete serendipity as he was out with a friend for a quick after gig drink and I was out with friends from work. As fate would have it they knew each other❤️
From the get go we were just strangely comfortable with each other, it felt as though we have known each other our whole lives.
Was your wedding affected by Covid-19 and how?
Luckily for us Covid didn’t have an effect on our special day as we wanted a small intimate wedding, and our venue only allowed for a small group of guest.
Who did your hair & make-up and how did you find them?
My hair was done by Ilze van der Walt at Verfraai salon and my make up was done by Micayla.
I was extremely happy with both my hair and makeup, it was perfectly done, Definitely ticked my Pinterest boxes and I felt like a absolute princess!
What made you choose your Kimberley Wedding Venue?
So our friend Wilhelmina had a agreement from forever that she would be the chef for his wedding. Sooo when she moved to Kimberley, the only option was to have a “destination” Kimberley wedding.😉
What was the most memorable moment of your wedding day?
Bride: For me it was definitely seeing my now -husband once I got to the end of the church aisle, he looked so handsome and his smile said everything.
Groom: Definitely the butterfly feeling meeting each other in the church, Landi our Wedding Photographer caught the moment on film and the fact that there were no doubt about the person I am about to spend my life with.
Tell us something funny/unique about your wedding weekend.
Something funny for me was that we were both so “kinderlik opgewonde” that during the church service we were giggling and I just could not stop smiling from ear to ear.
How did you experience your Photographer’s service?
Our Wedding Photographer, Landi from Organictales has a very comfortable feel about her, which meant we were immediately comfortable. She guides you regarding poses and that helps allot especially if you are not a “photo-shoot” couple. Because my husband and I like a little bit of a more silly side , she really captured us as a couple.
If you could change anything from the day, what would it be?
Literally nothing, even though it was a chilly-ish day and was raining like crazy at the end of the night, our day was absolutely perfect. It was everything we wanted and more.
Where did you go on honeymoon and what made it special?
My husband is a adventure photographer ,so on the Sunday we left to shoot Freedom Circuit at Underberg. It was a privilege to be able to spend a week together in a car😬 Later this year we will go on a official Honeymoon.
What advice would you give other couples still in the planning process?
Do what you want to do! It is your wedding. We didn’t ask for allot advice as we wanted our day to reflect us, also we had amazing friends that became our vendors. We also didn’t have allot of input on the food or the decor as we completely trusted our vendors and we were extremely happy with the result. They captured the exact idea we wanted and everyone had a amazing time at our wedding! A Definite perfect day to remember.
