Adri and Pieter tied the knot at Blomfontein Wedding Venue situated just outside Cradock in the Eastern Cape. The couple met at Adri’s brother’s wedding a few years ago. She was the lucky girl to have the last dance with him and from there our fairy tale started righting itself. Niki M Photography was there to capture their special day. I just love the confetti cones that were made from colourful pages of a Garden & Home magazine.
Tell us more about the proposal
We planned a weekend away with friends to the family farm, whom accepted work in Amsterdam. The weekend passed with game drives, laughter and a good jaffel made on the fire. On the Sunday morning we started packing, we decided to go one one more game drive before heading back home.
Pieter’s dad mentioned a lookout point he want to go have a look at. Finally reaching the top and a spot he was happy with, Pieter asked whether I was able to spot the main house. As I turned around I found him down on one knee. My first reaction was “what are you doing?” soon realizing soon after what was happening. Our friends arrived a few minutes later with the snacks and champagne to celebrate.
Do you have any advice for other couples planning their wedding?
- If something does not work out on the day, it will be ok and you will probably not even remember as you had your friends and family there to witness your love for each other.
- Pieter and I never argued about wedding plans. Just remember it is his day as well and be open to his opinions or ideas.
