Chris & Marike | Wedding | Moon & Sixpense

People are like stained glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

I am sure Chris gets this a lot. He is someone you don’t mess with…I mean he drives a seriously fast Suzuki Hyabusa, he is a policeman and he is 6 foot tall! But when you get to know him, and especially when he said the most amazing words about his bride Marike during the reception, then you get to see he has such a soft heart. Marike is also a force to be reckoned with, I mean she is a prosecutor by day…but once again…when you spend time with her you will be see that she is such a beautiful and sweet person with a soft heart. Wow, it’s amazing how love can bring two people together, and they surely looked so much in love during their special day.

They chose the Moon & Sixpense Wedding Venue as the backdrop for their wedding and what a great choice. The flowers and decor by Exquisite Flowers and Decor was simple yet very beautiful!

I just love it when there is so many personal elements at the wedding was done by themselves, such as the cake which was done by Marike’s mom, and the gifts which Marike made herself. Some of the jewellery Marike inherited from her mom, and the groomsmen’s bow-ties and suspenders they got from China Mall.

Marike’s makeup and hair looked amazing, well done Melinda De Wet from Frissk Beauty!

We all had fright when the weather forecast was hail for the day. but only had scattered showers during the day. I get excited when it rains because you can create super cool photos, but it rained during odd moments at the wedding: a little in the morning and then again during the ceremony, and especially when they were eating (like many would say…don’t interrupt a good meal). So for me to create a rain photo for the night-shot I asked two of the groomsmen to create rain for the photo…which was great fun and the photos looks surreal!
