Avron, the proud groom from one of our recent weddings, lets us in on his special day with his blushing bride at Waterkloof.
What…is your story?
We are both from Johannesburg. Our paths crossed one spring morning whilst welcoming mutual friends back from their honeymoon. A coffee became lunch, and lunch became the start of a wonderful adventure together.
Why… did you chose Waterkloof for your special day?
We took a trip down to the Cape for a long weekend. One afternoon, we turned off onto a dusty road and took the windy road to a wonderful site. A structure of concrete, steel and glass – how superb! Since that first visit, it held a special place in our thoughts. Once I’d popped the question, we both knew it was down to the Cape for the special occasion – and what better place than Waterkloof!
What… advice can you offer for future couples tying the knot?
“Marriage is like a fine wine – as it ages, it just gets better.”
Don’t under estimate your gut feeling, it’s normally spot on!
When… you look back one day, what will you remember most?
We will laugh at all the effort we put in, at all the small things that irritated us and all of the things that could have gone wrong. We will remember the fun we had with the really special people in our lives. Having an intimate wedding made it possible for us to make memories with everyone!
Who… helped in making this your dream wedding day?
