Claudia & Pierro

Waenhuiskraal  – a Pretoria Wedding

A Yellow Daisy Affair*

“If I had my life to live over,
I would start barefoot earlier in the spring and stay that way later in the fall.
I would go to more dances. I would ride more merry-go-rounds.
I would pick more daisies.”
~Nadine Stair

Their Love Story

Pierre and Claudia met – in such a traditional South African way – at a braai 🙂 through mutual friends*

The Dress

Claudia’s sister inlaw (and the Lovely MUA and Hair Stylist for the Wedding!!) ordered her own wedding dress online, so they felt at ease and went ahead looking for the best site to order Claudia’s own Wedding Day Dress from overseas as well* After doing a few test runs at Bridal shops, deciding on the exact look and feel she wanted, she knew she couldn’t go wrong 🙂

And for the Bridesmaids dresses, Claudia’s sister-in-law handmade them herself. Claudia scanned through pinterest to find the perfect dress for them she liked, shopped around for the perfect material to match the yellow daisy feel, and she made it from scratch.

The Proposal

Claudia and Pierro went away for the weekend with Pierro’s family to Zebula. The Saturday afternoon Claudia started receiving little quizzes that she needed to fill-out to complete a an answer sheet… In the end all the little details from the answer sheet of the quiz, took her to a flight look-out point, where Pierro was waiting with champagne, and went down on one knee.

Claudia’s favourite thing about Pierro- “Pierro is extremely funny, he always acts out like characters from movies and over exaggerate them.”

Pierre’s favourite thing about Claudia – “All the love she gives me.”
