Morné & Aronaé tied the knot at Camp Aquila in Limpopo. I just loved the champagne, white and green decor that she used on the tables, it was literally glass vases filled with pretty flowers. The couple wanted an elegant and simple theme and decided on a champagne palette wedding. I made use of glass vases and crystal chairs. The couple requested the guests to wear a formal clothing palette of white and black and the parents of the bride and groom wore colour palettes of champagnes. Photographer, Charl van der Merwe was there to capture the event that only took three months to plan.
How did the you meet?
We met in the year 2011 at a Roxette concert in Sun City. We were both part of a group that decided to make a fun trip of the Roxette concert. Morné and a few friends drove from Kimberley, were he stayed at the time and I drove with a friend that we both knew from Louis Trichardt where Morne and I still stay. Little did I know that the weekend was not only going to be exciting but that I was on my way to meet my husband!
Tell us more about the proposal
We got engaged in 2014, it was quite romantic and unexpected. Morné organised a weekend were we relived the weekend we met. We stayed at the same place we greeted each other for the first time. He took me to Sun City for the day where we enjoyed water activities and cocktails and on Sunday on our way home we stop at Johannesburg Zoo where He and I spoke alone for the first time and it something cliché like if you touch this animal I will give you R20. I replied and said I will do it for 100? We walked through the zoo and when we got to the same animal he went on his knees and wrapped my ring in a R20 and said: “Will you be my wife for R20?” and I said YES!!!! I will do it for free!!
Do you have any advice for other couples planning their wedding?
SAVE!!! My husband started saving two years before our wedding! You do not want to get back from honeymoon and start paying of a loan.
