Today’s wedding warms my heart. You can tell these two are smitten with each other. ENJOY
How Did You Meet?
We met on a project in South Africa. Ben is from Australia and we spent a lot of time together when I was showing him around the country.
He proposed in Florence, Italy. It was a beautiful day at Piazzale Michelangelo.
Umkhongi wethu was a family friend. He helped them through the whole process. Ben’s dad and brother were part of the negotiations. They flew down from Australia for that week.
Stressful planning a wedding from Australia. I live there now and both our weddings were in South Africa.
1) Stay in the moment – I know it’s a trite cliche but it’s true. Weddings happen fast and you have to soak it all in.
2) It never goes according to plan so you need to deconstruct those limiting beliefs of what your day should look/feel like. You have to be flexible…”que sera sera” as the Spanish would say.
3) weddings are exhausting. No one talks about the physical tax of that day but you occupy a weird space of being both a host and a guest as a bride/groom – it’s a lot of work. Take a few minutes to hydrate, eat, and to recharge throughout the day!
