Carron & Arno Nel | WeddingSeptember 11, 2015
Carron and Arno got married the 8th of August on a beautiful winters day. The weather was quite dramatic but suited their wedding very well! (Happy) Tears were flowing right throughout the day, it was just too special. I’ve known Arno since school days and it was such a privilege to capture his special day with his gorgeous bride. She looked stunning in her elegant gown and dramatic bouquet! Carron and Arno, i wish you the world of happiness on your journey as husband and wife. To many many years of love, peace and happiness!
THROUGH THEIR EYES:
Our experience of our wedding day:
Bride: Our wedding day was a surreal experience, but also so life-affirming, it was so wonderful to see all the family and friends who turned out to celebrate our commitment to one another! The day absolutely flew by, and I’m so glad my new husband and I took a few minutes out of the evening to ourselves just to take in the wonder and absolute excitement of the day. My wedding day was everything I’ve ever dreamed of! I married my best friend, and I can’t wait to celebrate life’s moments with him for a lifetime to come!
Did everything go according plan?
No! Thankfully I had a wonderful buffer system in place (thanks mom) so I only found out about the near-disastrous cake saga after it had been rectified ? Our stunning naked cake had apparently begun to lean a little too drastically to the left at some point between the delivery and the ceremony! I’ve seen the photos and it was an inch away from toppling over! Thankfully the wonderful catering staff at Klein Bottelary were able to rectify the matter and our cake was (thankfully) upright by the time the reception started!
The highlight of the day was:
Bride: The highlight of our wedding day was the few moments we stole alone standing outside on the beautiful porch of our reception venue looking at the night sky and just taking in the magnificence of the day and the fact that we were now husband and wife!
Groom: To me the highlight of our wedding day was when my bride walked down the aisle looking as beautiful as she did, I will never forget that moment.
