Dianette & Naudé are one of those couples who have so much fun together. Every time we met, I left with sore cheeks from laughing so much. It was so much fun working with them and great to have clients who put their trust in you.

Once they had decided on final numbers, we found the gorgeous Ivory Manor Boutique Hotel in Pretoria. Their grounds and gardens are stunning and beautifully manicured, perfect for an intimate elopement.

Dianette & Naudé said their I Do’s under a huge Jacaranda tree, in front of their closest family & friends. I was lucky to be their officiant and got to witness the love they have for each other, up close.

Once the sun had gone down, we sat down for a harvest table style dinner surrounded by fairy lights. The party moved inside to the wine cellar when a huge storm came through, creating a very cozy feeling to end off the night.

Naudé & Dianette, I wish you many more years of laughs and happiness… I have no doubt you’ll keep smiling together until the end.
