We finally said “I Do” on the 5th of May 2018!! The sweetest (and long awaited) moment ever was when the pastor said I know proclaim you husband and wife! Warning This post contains many photos!
The wedding day for me started at 7:00. I took a relaxing bath and then ate some breakfast with my mom and sister. After breakfast, we went straight to the hair salon for our hair. The hair took a bit longer than expected but we were still on time for the makeup girls. We got our makeup done at my Grandmother’s home and we also got ready.

Wiehann’s day started with a bang, because he and my mother in law, sister in law and had to set up the whole reception before 12:30 when he got ready. Afterward, I only heard about all the drama that went on, I was blissfully unaware of it all!

We say ‘I Do’
We said I do in the NG Moederkerk. It was a must for me to get married in this church. I love older buildings that have iconic architectural styles. My theme for the wedding was to achieve a Baroque vibe, but a lot simpler. Such an opulent wedding would have cost us a fortune! And the church was the closest I could find to this particular style, even if it was built in the Neo-Gothic style. I just overall love the architecture of this church.
Interesting fact: the angels that surrounded the pulpit were made in Scotland. The church commissioned six angels but only five arrived. They send two photos of two local girls to Scotland so that the artist can make the angels to look like these girls. The church was concerned that the angels would look too much like European girls otherwise!
After the ceremony, we took the family photos and then we did the couple photoshoot! All of the stress disappeared after the ceremony and we just enjoyed ourselves. Here are some of my favorite photos, but honestly I love them all!
The food was delicious and everyone enjoyed themselves. We got so many compliments that we had a great wedding and that is all that I wanted! For me the highlight was our first dance because we got help from a professional to choreograph the dance. It turned out beautifully!

Everything is how I wanted it to be. We and our guests enjoyed ourselves. I wish sometimes that we could have the day over. Maybe in 10 years time, we will do a vow renewal and do it again!!! So much fun!
