Wen's wedding - walking down the aisle

So after getting ready, everyone arrived at Kirstenbosch Botanical Garden, where the wedding will be held.

As it is a garden wedding, it will be held in the grounds of Kirstenbosch.

2 in 1 program + fan

and a love board

Guests arrived at about 2.30-3.00pm.

By 3.25pm, good friend and the MC for the day (Nataan) got the guests seated and ready for the ceremony.

At 3.30pm, Richard Clayderman's Ballade Pour Adeline plays in the background. Flowergirl Zoe and Bridesmaid *ahem* me, walked in....

Zoe was abit too young (3 years old) and got shy when everyone was looking at her, so I gotta hold her and guide her halfway.

And then another good friend Adrian plays the piano. A beautiful version of Wedding March.

Look at the groom's face! The anxiety to look at his beautiful bride! :D

Daddy walked together with Wen, to give her away. She look absolutely stunning! The make-up, the hairdo, the dress, everything fits perfectly!

The minister then asked Ian to turn and look at his bride. Happiness written all over his face! :D

The sun was shining a little bit too bright that day, thus everyone was hiding under the umbrella and sunglasses! We were still glad for the sunny weather and it's not a windy day.

Daddy gave away the bride to Ian.

And together they walked the rest of the aisle.

And the ceremony begins. The minister spoke of love.

They spoke their vows and 'I Do-s'

Ian's parents

Daddy & Mummy


The the exchange of rings.

'I now pronounce you husband and wife. You may now kiss the bride.'

Pieter (Ian's dad) dedicated a solo to the newlyweds! He sang beautifully!

Then the bride and groom enters the gazebo to officially sign the paper documents.

And also their witnesses, Bestman Rodger and Bridesmaid me.

Then the newlyweds marched down the aisle for the first time as Mr and Mrs Abels. Everyone took their scatterlings to throw at them!

The ceremony ends.

Everyone took a chance to hug and personally congratulate the newlyweds.

The whole ceremony took about 45 minutes.

Then the bride and groom went for their wedding shoot.

While the guests hung out at the lawn area outside the restaurant, where cocktails and snacks were served.

There were also a few games such as chess, tic-tac-toe, etc prepared for the guests.

Some guests took a rest at the restaurant and chill.

When the bride and groom returned about an hour later, we took family photos.
