Zahne and Rudi’s Wedding Day /
Appelliefie Art and Photography Wedding Photographer Pretoria
A Fun Filled farm Style Outdoors Themed Wedding
Zahne was working at a wedding (wedding planner) at their Venue, when they needed to get more hands for the specific task at hand, so Zelmia was approached (Rudi’s cousin) on the neighbourhood group, to help. Zelmia eagerly told Zahne about her cousin, Rudi, who she thought would be a perfect match with Zahne. And so the blind date was arranged… They met at Church and after, Rudi invited Zahne over for coffee, where he played guitar and sang “The Little Mermaid’s: Kiss the Girl.” That moment was where Zahne’s heart was stolen, and they have seen each other every day since 🙂
Rudi invited over Zahne’s family for a braai (traditional afrikaans barbeque), on the farm and set up a treasure hunt for the evening. Little did Zahne know, but everyone was in on the surprise, and their clues told them to head on over to Jabulani’s side. Zahne’s clues sent her to a few locations before arriving at Jabulani. Upon arrival, fairylights twinkled alight between the woods, pictures of them as a couple were hanging along the pathway and every family member handed her a flowers along the way…
At the end of the pathway, Rudi was down on one knee to ask the girl of his dreams to spend her life with him, with the perfect touch: Zane’s dog (Luca) carrying the ring on her paw.
Zahne was part of a Mr & Miss Waterkloof, where the dress designer, Fritz Wilson, sponsored the girls dresses. Ever since then, she has been crazy inlove with his designs, and without any second thoughts, chose him to be her perfect wedding dress designer.
