“Two are better than one” ~ Ecclesiastes 4:9

Coreen and Adriaan’s wedding was such a special wedding photography day for me. Having known them both from church, and working with Coreen on Sundays as a volunteer in the same service, made it truly a special wedding to capture on my part. Not just on the personal side, but a truly more beautiful couple – inside and out – one couldn’t have asked for!

{ Their Love Story }

Coreen and Adriaan met at church, at one of their Sunday evening services. After a couple of weeks of simply greeting one another, and sidelong glances, Coreen decided to send Adriaan a message on Facebook, to ask him for a coffee date. And well done for her initiative, as they haven’t been separated since.

{ The Proposal }

The Proposal was a huge surprise! Adriaan took Coreen to the farm, where there is an old boma camp covered with trees. Adriaan said he needed to go do some work out at the boma (which she never found suspicious) and being such a romantic, Adriaan layed candles along the pathway leading them right to the centre of the boma. His mother was in on the plan, and sent her off to find him and take him some refreshments… needless to say, when she saw the candles lighting up the path, with Adriaan awaiting her arrival at the entrance, she was astounded. They walked the pathway between the glittering lights, and in the centre he asked his best friend to marry him.

{ The Dress }

Coreen was one of the lucky ones, she found her perfect dress online, and just made a few minor alterations to custom it to her beautiful wedding dream.

{Their favourite things about one another }

Coreen : “I love his way of doing things, … hmmm, and his behind :-P”

Adriaan : ” I love her silliness, it makes her even more beautiful. Her grace and loving kindness.”

{ Tips from The Bride and Groom to engaged couples who are planning their own wedding day}

  • Pray together before you decide on something
  • Have a Budget to guide you on the journey
  • Remember it is your day <3

1 Corinthians 13

 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.

It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.

Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.

It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.

For we know in part and we prophesy in part,

but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears.

When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me.

For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

“I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine.” ~ Song of Solomon 8:3

“I found the one my heart loves.” ~ Song of Solomon 3:4
