I love my job in general, but I love my job even more when the weddings that I plan go so well and I get hired by the sweetest couple in the whole world!
When Christine asked me to plan her wedding, I was very excited. Christine is a wedding photographer, so she knows the ins and outs of this industry. So it was quite an honour for me to help her with this, and to be honest, I was a bit nervous!
Let me tell you a bit about what I learnt about this couple:
Christine and Andrew met at UCT
They travel together
They laugh together
They cry together
They support eachother through everything
They love eachother….ALOT

Andrew’s smile is infectious, his cheeks a constant rosy and his eyes never, ever leave Christine. He is one of the nicest people I have ever met and he truly loves his new bride. It is a beautiful thing to see.
Christine is creative, funny, down to earth and I think she might love weddings as much as me. She also looked like someone who just stepped out of a fairytale when she put her wedding dress on. Christine was very specific about what she wanted in a dress. So much so, that I received an email from her one day… It contained a photo of three separate dresses photoshopped into one – it made me giggle. This is a bride who knows exactly what she wants, and Alex from The Wedding Boutique gave her exactly what she wanted. She looked incredible to say the least.
I loved working on this wedding. It was a big task and we brought in some amazing people to pull this day together. The venue looked absolutely stunning, the flowers and decor were oh so pretty. The dessert table was the most amazing thing I have ever seen. There was not one piece of candy left at the end of the night! From the food, to the barmen to the DJ that rocked the house till 1am – everything was fabulous!
Christine and Andrew – THANK YOU for asking me to help plan such an important event in your life. I loved every second of it and I will be using your wedding as a reference for the rest of time! I wish you love, light and happiness for your future together as Mr and Mrs Murray.
Thank you to the amazing service providers who helped make this day so special.
