Mariette and Ronald saw each other for the very first time whilst both being at a mutual friends house. And both felt they just couldn’t take their eyes off of each other! Later the same evening, they bumped into each other for the second time while out dancing at one of Bloemfontein’s clubs. they had a great eying together, which caused Ronald to follow up and find out her number from their friend, and (as she says:) “that more or less is the start to everything.”
Mariette admits she made it so difficult for Ronald! Nothing he seemed to plan, worked out… They were in Harolds-bay on holiday, and one evening they were sitting outside under the starts enjoying the view from the balcony, and Ronald got up and asked Mariette for a hug… and as she got up, he went down on one knee… And she just started crying… so much she couldn’t answer him! Little needs to be said about her answer!
Mariette and Casper are good friends, so at all of their friends weddings, she always said (that when the day came…) he would be the one to make her perfect dress*
“because his dresses are breathtakingly beautiful!” And she felt that from the moment she stepped into his studio, he knew exactly what she wanted*
Ronald and Mariette had a very elegant wedding at the Reservoir following the Ceremony which took place at the NG Klipkerk. They went for a fun, laid-back, yet elegant and classy affair, with a romantic flair, and it definitely turned out to be just that!
Mariette’s Advice for any Bride-to-be in her planning of their special day:
– Start early, so that you don’t have to stress so much at the end!
– AND enjoy!! It’s such a fun and happy time*
