I don’t even know where to start with this wedding…shall I start with Jacob who has a calm gentleness that surrounds him; or the gorgeous, vivacious Kabelo who feels like a best friend after knowing her for only a few minutes? These two are so special and when we booked this wedding, I knew it would be something to remember.
I met with them a while before the wedding and was asked if I am prepared to to the traditional side of it as well…mmm…let me think about that 🙂 Yes please… So, the Saturday was the white wedding – we started at Kabelo’s childhood home where she got dressed while the elders negotiated over coffee, her bridesmaids sewed last minute alterations to their dresses and her two beautiful girls tried to contain their excitement. The ceremony that followed was personal and filled with joy (and even a vuvuzela or two) .. and as they walked out the chapel, they were greeted by traditional dancers. Now I ask you, is that not the best way to be greeted as husband and wife??
During the reception it started raining, but as it cleared for about half an hour we stole them away, rushed off to the (rather wet) veld around the corner for some creatives as the sun was setting… I heard a “do I have to go in there?” but they still braved the long wet grass and rocked it! See for yourself 🙂
Oh, by the way…there is still a day 2, so get comfortable 😉
