I have said it before I will say it again! I LOVE a good farm wedding! I also love a genuine people, milktarts and going to places that I have never been to.
Marna and Cyril’s wedding was one of those that will bring a smile to my face for a very long time. There wasn’t one pretentious thing about their day. How could their be? Marna and Cyril must be two of the most down to earth people I have ever met. Cyril has just finished his PHD in Chemistry and Marna is currently doing her internship as a Doctor. They met whilst studying at University and have been together ever since. Both of them come from Afrikaans farming families and so it was important for them to have their wedding on Marna’s Oupa’s farm in Normandien (which is somewhere nearish to NewCastle in Natal). The whole community came together to make this day magical. Everyone seemed to have a part to play. Friends and family cooked, baked, crochet, planted and flower arranged. Even all the mismatched chairs in the reception were provided by guests.
I have photographed many brides before and I can honestly say that Marna was the smiliest I have ever encounted. She beamed the whole day!!!!!! It was a happy day, it was a soulful day, it was a magical day.
Marna and Cyril thanks for picking me . We loved your wedding!
PS Huge thanks to the Lombaard family for having us and for making us feel so at home. Thanks also to Janna for looking after us so well. You should be a wedding planer (just saying!)
