The Conclave Country Lodge – Johan + Daphne Wedding
Johan & Daphne tied the knot at The Conclave Country Lodge outside of Pretoria! Below is a little bit more about this amazing couple and their journey together!
We met through friends 10 years ago. Johan was living in Potchefstroom at that stage and I was living in Pretoria. The long distance did not work, but we still stayed in touch. Johan eventually moved to Pretoria and I decided to give him some time to settle and get used to his new surroundings, and then I decided to send him a message to find out how he was doing. He later told me that he was planning on getting in touch with me too, but I won. ? We met up for coffee and right from the start everything just felt right, like it was meant to be.
Johan proposed in the backyard at the house where we were staying. He was supposed to braai some meat for dinner and I was busy in the house getting everything ready when I got a call from him to meet him outside. I went outside and was surprised with candles everywhere! Right from the door all the way to the backyard where he was waiting for me in a big heart shaped with candles.
Our wedding day was perfect! I wouldn’t change a thing. Our family and friends made our day very special. The highlight was when we went out to take the photos and a giraffe just showed up to join the photos
At some point in life, especially when you start getting older, you really believe that you are meant to just stay single for the rest of your life. You start thinking about names for all the cats that you will most probably own and wonder if they will enjoy watching movies with you when you’re alone on a Saturday night. ? Then one day, out of the blue, this person walks into your life, and you just feel as if he belongs there. You forget all the silly cat names and stop searching for bird cages and everything feels magical. Our journey together so far is exactly that – magical. I didn’t only marry the love of my life, but also my best friend and the man that I can see myself getting old with together.
I want to thank Johan & Daphne for allowing me to capture their very special day. We had such a great time creating memories with you guys and I wish you all of God’s grace for your future together!
