i'm back at varsity now, getting into the swing of things and loving life. but i realised i never gave you an update on the wedding that we went to nearly two weeks ago... and it was a wedding to remember, so i thought i'd share it with you :)
my family has this very cool guy that is our collective friend. he used to live in Lil' Hometown and worked with my dad; he was a part of our church and a part of our lives. dear Neville :) he moved away three or four years ago, and sometime last year he met the beautiful Joanne. hi, soulmates! we had never met her before the wedding, but it was evident from the moment we saw the two of them together that this was something incredibly special.
i didn't get many photos, because i was too busy oohing and aahing at all the specialness... but i've hijacked some of my friend Sakkie's photos and pimped them up (ie. put them through Poladroid...) and i will now display them here for you to see :) ready?
for the ceremony, i sat with friend John. we intended to have all four of the "kids" - my sister, me, John and his brother Joe - all sitting together, but things got out of whack and John and i ended up being the only kids....
...and apparently for good cause ;) i love how absolutely ridiculous we both look in these photos. love it.
here's the moment i was talking about. what a stunning thing to see :)
the rest of the ceremony was just as gorgeous, just as moving. and then... it was RECEPTION TIME ;)
all the Eshowe people were put at one table - i like to think of it as Nev's "Eshowe family".
the cake... and many delicious cupcakes! yes!
we decided to have a "photoshoot" outside, and these are the results:
and there you have it... a taste of the wonderful wedding that was!
i think marriage is such a beautiful, powerful thing; i pray that Nev and Jo are amazingly blessed in their new life together...
and i pray, too, for the man i will someday marry.
