Mike & Yolanda Bouwer


Extremely emotional and unforgettable journey Planning a wedding in the same time as the Corona Virus breakout, with masks, lockdowns and curfew’s, well that wasn’t fun at all. It was the most stress we’ve ever endured, lots of tears and lots of planning, we had to postpone our wedding and finally got married with only close friends and family. (30 people) So sad that some of our family members did not attend due to covid.

One week before our wedding day, we received very sad news that Mike’s mom passed away, with heavy hearts we had to continue with our wedding, as we couldn’t postpone again. We just had to push through , what a week we had before we got married, planning a funeral and at the same time getting the last few arrangements in place for your wedding day, It was really like something out a movie.
Our wedding day was extremely emotional and super special, we couldn’t have done this with all the love and support from all our family and friends.

With so much love and emotions on the day, it couldn’t be more perfect. Our two beautiful precious little girls as flower girls, my sister as my bridesmaid, and my dad next to me made the day extra special, it was a dream came true!
Shepstone Gardens is a stunning venue and the service was excellent, from the day we started to plan our wedding till the last minute they helped us to make our day unforgettable.

Today we are happily married with great memories that will last forever.
