Where did you meet each other?
We met for the first time through mutual friends in 2009, in an apartment in Pretoria. However, we only started dating 3 years later in 2012. It was fate. Louis at the time had a ginger afro, and I had pitch black hair. It wasn’t love at first sight but it was definitely memorable! haha
In short, tell us about your wedding day:
Our wedding was picture perfect. The sun shone all day and there was a magical feeling in the air. Looking back, it feels like a dream! The theme of our day was inspired by Victorian/Rococo style with a modern twist. In true Marie Antoinette style, we had 10 wedding cakes and opulent flower chandeliers that hung from the ceiling. It was a true celebration! The flowers where bright and bold and the atmosphere was amazing with a special variety of music that played throughout the day . Our guests took pictures with a polaroid camera, ate and danced all night long!
What is your definition of a successful marriage?
A successful marriage is built on love and respect for one another. It means willingness to compromise for the other person and to work as a team. It’s also means being your spouse’s biggest supporter/ cheerleader through life’s challenges. And last but not least, sharing new adventures and exploring this wonderful life together!
