Photographed by the lovely Shireen Louw, Geraldine and Dante’s big day has all the elements of a timelessly beautiful wedding – a gorgeous dress, an elegant but soft up-do, roses, crystal shimmer, a vintage car and fields of wheat and canola flowers for the most amazing couple shoot!

 How We Met

We knew each other from high school, he was the quiet one, and I’m the amplifier!

We went to our Matric ball together, but there was nothing serious going on. It was only after I came back from London when the sparks started to fly. This was meant to be!

The Proposal

The proposal happened at home. I couldn’t figure out why he was dragging to get dressed, as we were about to have dinner in Blouberg. But when he dropped to one knee, my whole world stood still!

What made my day was that he went to go ask my dad if he could have my hand in marriage – guys just don’t do that any more.

The Wedding

Our wedding was a dream come true! Everything I had imagined played out wonderfully.

We wanted a classic, stylish & elegant wedding. Our colour scheme was black, grey and white. And as for our budget… what budget?! Ha ha. I started to lose track of the budget four months before the wedding. Oops!
