We also decided to avoid the headache of planning a big wedding. Instead, we used the money towards paying more into our Romansbaai plot bond and go on a dream trip to Portugal & Spain.
On Saturday 10 September 2022 we had a wedding officiant (Neil) come to our Lakeside home and, along with my mom and dad as witnesses, marry us. It was lovely and took about 20 mins.
Us 5 then drank bubbles (non alcoholic bubbles for my naughty parents) and shared heartfelt stories of when they were once married (in Knysna) back in the day.
The next day we celebrated our vows with only a handful of close family at the beautiful Casa Labia in Muizenberg, 5 mins from our home. The venue also overlooks the waves I spent most of my youth surfing.

It was perfect.
