12 Dec DANIELLE & MARTIN’S ROMANTIC WEDDING
Kisses, beautiful flowers, perfume and a gorgeous dress. These are truly the secret ingredients for a perfect Romantic Wedding!
OUR LOVE STORY
So I met this Crazy, goofy absolute Gorgeous guy in the beginning of 2010, through my Aunt and her husband. It was at an ordinary South – African Braai, the type where you don’t expect to fall in Head over Heels in-love. So one thing lead to the other and we quickly became good friends, and before we knew, we started our amazing journey together.
This was the fun part, I must have tried on about 50 dresses when I finally went to Bride and Co and got into the absolute opposite dress that I had imagine myself wearing, and I loved everything about it.
HOW HE PROPOSED:
Martin had just been discharged from the Hospital the Friday, after having several Kidney stones, and he had arranged, to weeks prior, with his family and mine to have a picnic that Saturday, so he was still in pain but very determined to go to this picnic at the Botanical Gardens in Krugersdorp, which at the time I really did not understand, anyway we got there and we were viewing the waterfall sometime later when he asked me if I would mind sitting down because he was in pain, I agreed and we walk to the bench and just as I sat down, he went on his one Knee and asked me if I will Marry Him, because he can’t imagine his life without me in it, and obviously I said YES, I mean he is the Best thing in my life.
THE ROMANTIC WEDDING DAY
One would say this is an extremely Stressful day, however, I think he stressed more than Me. Everything just fell together perfectly which made me able to just take a deep breath and that’s when it hit me, ‘I am Actually marring the man of my dreams today!’.
When I stood next to my Dad at the entrance of the Chapel, I just panicked, and it felt like I couldn’t breathe and I am struggling to hold back the tears, and then the Music started and I basically dragged my father down the Aisle and he just hold me close and said, ‘Relax’ every part of me was shaking and I wasn’t really sure I would be able to stand on my own. Finally when I stood next to Martin tears basically streaming down my face by now (he looked Amazing by the way) everything just felt Right.
While taking photos, when Dune asked where my flowers were, did I realize that I forgot them back in the room, they didn’t even make it to the Chapel, and we all just laughed.
At the reception I was only too happy to be seated for a while, and my shoes were the first thing to go, I was so just so happy that everything up to hear went as good as it did. So we mingled a bit, and after a while dinner were served, hallelujah is all I am going to say. Then came the First Dance, we have been practicing for this, since FOREVER.
By now our nerves were sky high, and Martin kept stepping on my dress and all he told me was ‘it’s okay, don’t worry, everything is okay.’ All I could do was laugh. Everything went so good and I would not change one thing about Our Romantic Wedding day.
