Our whole country was in lockdown..a mere 3 weeks before our wedding day… this meant no perfect dream day on the 4th of April 2020. All the planning, dreaming, and counting down to the last few days were gone. We were devastated!
However, we decided that Covid19 was not going to stop our love story! We got married on 20 June 2020!!!
We held a “minimony” on our farm in the Karoo. We had an intimate ceremony, held with our immediate family and a few of our closest friends. We exchanged our vows, celebrated into the night and then started our married life together.
Our wedding day was perfect, held on the farm where I grew up, surrounded by so much love and happiness. With the help of our families and neighbours, we put together a “self-made” wedding celebration. The ceremony was held in the courtyard of our house- under the beautiful pepper trees; with the fresh winter breeze blowing through our hair; the birds singing in our ears and God’s mercy shining down on us.
All vendors were closed during this time, which meant no professional hair and makeup; but thanks to my beautiful bridesmaids, they made me feel like a princess on that day. Doing my own makeup and them helping with my hair, turned into such a special bonding time for us. The groomsmen looked dashing. We were ready for a wedding.
Johann and I said our vows at 14:30 that afternoon. Tears were shed and hoorays were sang!
Our reception was held in our old farm garage. The tables, chairs, cutlery, crockery and all the decorations were borrowed from our farm community and the flowers came from my Momsi’s garden. The previous day, we all got stuck in cleaning, decorating and transforming the garage into a picture perfect setting. And that it was.
We ate, drank, danced and celebrated what true happiness and life is all about- trusting God, how important family and friends are to us and how we need to appreciate each day as a gift.
Johann and I got to celebrate the Blessing of marriage. Our wedding was very different to what we had originally picture, but BOY it was FANTASTIC. A day that is stitched into our hearts forever.
