The wedding of Gert and Barbara-Jean coincided with the 70th birthday of her father and so, it was decided, that they would combine the two big events and have not one, but two big family celebrations.
On the 17th of December a small, intimate wedding ceremony took place at the Bride’s parent’s beautiful farm, with only a few close family members present.
After the ceremony, the family sat down to a meal fit for a king and the day was spent in the company of loved ones.
The reception was combined with the 70th birthday party and this all happened on 20 December 2011. The day dawned bright and sunny and we set up the tables in the beautiful gardens under a huge bedouin tent. It looked like a fairytale.
