Gerhard & Nadine’s unique wedding story & Wedding Vendors: 

1 – How did you meet one another?
My eldest brother, Kevin, introduced us to one another when I started studying in Pretoria.
He was always my lift when going to church and in that way we got to know each other better.
A couple of months after meeting, we started dating and we dated for 5 years and 10 months before getting married.
2 – How did your husband propose to you?
Gerhard surprised me with a visit while I was still living in Richards Bay. He told me he had a surprise for me for over the weekend and we ended up flying down to his family in Mosselbay.
One evening he said that his cousin had arranged for a family photo shoot the following day and wanted us to be there. The plan was to have breakfast on the beach after the family hoot.
We arrived on the beach with his whole family there and we took pictures of everyone. The photographer then took couple pictures of each couple and we moved onto the jetty in Bayview, which was a very special place for both of us. The photographer instructed both of us to look at the ocean with our backs turned to her.
Gerhard was standing behind me when the photographer asked him to move, but then mentioned something about the lighting not being right, I then turned around and Gerhard was down on one knee.
He then asked me to marry him and without any hesitation I said YES!!
Shortly after it started raining

YOUR UNIQUE LOVE STORY & WEDDING DAY VENDORS:

Tell us about your love-story leading up to your special day – how did you meet one another?

I lived in London with a friend called Katie, who happens to be Martins sister. martin had gone travelling and was going to visit his sister before heading back to his hometown, Torquay. I met Martin on a very early week morning, I had no makeup, hair a mess in my worst track suit outfit ever!! Needless to say he was so polite and lovely, he was all handsome and sunkissed from his travel. Trying to hang my head down with embarrassment, I offered him a cuppa tea (as most English boys love their tea) it happened to be his very first cuppa tea since leaving the UK for his 9 months adventures. That is when i think I won his heart 🙂 We spend the weekend chatting and hearing all about each others lives and stories. We said our goodbyes at the end of the weekend and as he walked out the door i felt sad that I may never see thing guy again. Little did I know he felt the same. Katie then decided to play match maker and send him my number. After weeks of calling and texting, Martin booked a train to London to spend the weekend with me 🙂 and that’s when our adventure started. 

How did your husband propose to you?

Martin and I always love to travel and visit new places together. So we planned a 2 month backpacking trip around Thailand and Hong Kong.  After our 5 weeks traveling the most beautiful islands together, we found ourselves in a chic apartment in Bangkok overlooking the city. Martin proposed on our last night in Bangkok at the apartment. It was so perfect and so us! Great end to our Thailand trip with an exciting start to our Hong Kong adventure.

 
Did your wedding have a theme, if yes please give details:

I would say yes. We wanted it to be romantic and we wanted to pull in elements that would compliment the venue. As I am originally from South Africa,  therefore wanted to incorporate some elements that we both love, such as the outdoors.

YOUR UNIQUE LOVE STORY & WEDDING DAY VENDORS:
 
Tell us about your love-story leading up to your special day – how did you meet one another?
 
We met in January of 2010, at a very close friend’s house in Cape Town. It was a Saturday afternoon braai, and Jonathan had been invited to join by another friend of mine. We’d never met before, despite having loads of mutual friends, so it was refreshing to meet someone new. It wasn’t love at first sight, but we definitely got on with one another from the start. We started chatting on Facebook after we saw one another the next day at a cricket game (he’d actually organised ticket for our mutual friend earlier that week, and she’d given one to me), and then we met for coffee a few days later because I was trying to get some business out of the company he worked for at the time. We ended up chatting about everything other than business, and then made plans to have dinner together in Joburg a few days after, as we were both going to be there for work. Fast-forward a couple weeks later, and we were officially dating.
 
How did the groom propose?
 

It wasn’t a surprise at all, he didn’t get down on one knee and secretly plan an elaborate proposal. We’d been together for a few years up until that point, and been through quite a bit together. He had taken a year off and was about to start his full-time MBA, so we’d been discussing the next steps in our relationship and what we wanted to do next. We were actually lying in bed one night chatting about it, and he summed up how he felt about us so beautifully (I can’t even remember what he said, but it was amazing, I might have cried). We decided to make it official on the evening of 9 January 2014, where we went to have dinner at our favourite steak restaurant, The Hussar in Rondebosch. It was just the two of us, eating delicious food and drinking great red wine, so it was very special. We are very non-traditional, so it was perfect for us.
