When Bouwer and Leandie asked us to document their most important day we knew that it was going to be a wonderful day filled with some pretty spectacular moments. Leandie is on TV and Bouwer makes music & films, but this day was never about that.
You two have touched and inspire so many South-African hearts with the amazing work you do ( including ours! )… we are so excited and felt so blessed with the opportunity to touch a little part of your hearts with a little bit of our work. Thanks for allowing us to do just that and trusting us to document your most wonderful and happiest day.
We spent the morning with the guys making breakfast and taking a quick walk. The girls spent the morning taking it slow & getting pretty and ready in Blooming Blushes gowns.
Leandie’s father led the ceremony and officially married them at snowflake in potchefstroom. ‘Potch’ is the hometown of Bouwer and also only a few minute’s drive from where Leandie grew up. Deon Meiring & Almarie du Preez made beautiful music while guests mingled and congratulated them. Leandi wore a gorgeous wedding dress designed by Kobus Rautenbach, where-after she partied in a second outfit he made for her for the celebration part of the evening. As always, we loved working with jeanel from Pebble and Lace who did their wedding decor & flowers. M.studio designed and made little stationery details for them… their stamped wedding logo and #123boschmyself decor vinyls. Their wedding rings were designed & custom made by Lorean jewellery. Zinelda, a close friend, illustrated their wedding invitation and portraits for them which they printed on a big poster for everyone to sign.
A wedding is most probably the only day in one’s life that you will ever have everyone you love most, all together in one place at the same time. So it is only natural to be filled with a whirlwind of emotions. Our post today is not just because you are our clients, but also because you are our friends and we carry both of you in our hearts so dearly. You love each other so selflessly and we admire that about you… We wish you the greatest of joys and adventures ahead.
Treasure the small little moments when life gets busy, lie under the stars when you get a chance, listen to the rain, travel & see the world and then put all the pictures up on the wall. May you have the happiest, fullest filled life together. Kiss a lot… kiss everyday and love each other like crazy!
Leandi & Bouwer… wherever you go, you inspire, you mentor and you give hope with your courageous hearts. Thanks for reminding us that being able to do what one loves is such a precious gift and great privilege. Your lives are now even more beautiful because you have each-other!
