Alex and Russ say I Do in South Africa! The awesome couple choose a ridiculously stunning venue...Crystal Barn Country Estate which oozed the WOW factor! Situated in the Midlands (KwaZulu-Natal) and stands majestically on the edge of a beautiful dam with its palatial Indian doors, ancient carved windows and not forgetting its 22 vintage crystal chandeliers!?

They held their ceremony in a divine chapel where they were joined by all their family and friends. On the Bride & Groom's exit - free flowing Champagne, delicious food including South African favourites...Biltong and Droëwors were on hand for all guests to enjoy, alongside the Zulu Band playing on the grass! Celebrations continued with hitting golf balls into the dam, followed by emotional speeches and the couple's first dance lit up by sparklers on the dance floor!

A wedding planned to absolute perfection from start to end! (One of my highlights has to be...the traditional Afrikaans 'Sokkie' dance! With Russ coming from a large farming community this meant during the evening celebrations the Groomsmen started the 'Sokkie' to celebrate not only the marriage of Alex and Russ but also the big downpour of rain we had encountered that evening after an extemely long drought - Was an incredible moment to watch!)

Congratulations Mr & Mrs van Reenen ~ wishing you all the best!
