I love that when Non + KG think back on their wedding day, what stands out most is how happy their friends and family were. Their sweet love story was followed by an intimate ceremony in what I can only imagine is a little piece of heaven. (Those vines! That gate! It pulls my heartstrings!) Non, looking for a comfortable yet elegant dress, went for a one-shouldered Greek-style number and complemented the gown with a green and pink bouquet. Not to be ignored, KG looked fine and handsome in his slick grey suit and shiny black shoes. These lovely photos are the work of Rensche Mari and we can’t stop staring at the details. Good thing Part II is coming up!
How did the two of you meet? (From the groom) We met at the bus stop in Johannesburg as we were coming home from work. We spoke for what seemed like forever without knowing each others’ names. I wasn’t looking for love at the time because I was nursing a broken heart and, while I believed in love, I wasn’t sure if I could survive it. Nonhlanhla got a car and needed an experienced licensed driver to ride with her and she, thank God, thought of me (I was blessed because it was winter and most importantly, because she turned out to be “the one”). Then as our story goes, we got to know each other, fell in love, and the rest is history.
Describe the proposal. He took me out for lunch at Signature Restaurant and he was acting odd. We had lunch and when dessert came, I was too busy looking at what he ordered that I didn’t even notice the ring on top my dessert. Then, he went down on one knee and told me how much he loved me and that he can’t imagine his life without me. He was so nervous during the proposal. I said yes and I noticed that half of the staff was looking at us while he was proposing. After, they congratulated us.
Three adjectives that describe the day are: Beautiful, intimate, spiritual.
Our favorite detail of the wedding was: We really liked the table setting, especially the frozen fruit. But the one thing that sticks out for both of us is how happy our family and friends were.
Tell us about finding your wedding dress: I was looking for a simple and comfortable, yet beautiful dress, so I went for a Greek style dress.
Describe your wedding flowers: Nude and peach roses – they really looked stunning
