Home Wedding Stories IZAAK (32) and CHARLENE (26) VAN NIEKERK

Wedding Venue: Amanzingwe
Photographer: Carla Nel Photography

The Proposal:
We got Engaged on the beautifully beach of Swakopmund, Namibia. My husband grew up there and he took me for a holiday to show me the beauty of of the town. On the beach he got down on a knee and proposed to me. It was like a fairytale! Just me and him sharing this everlasting moment!

Charlene1Length of Engagement:
We were engaged for 1 year and 2 months before we got married.

Most of the Wedding Planning:
As every girl does I dreamt of my wedding day since I was a little girl so most of the planning was done by me, some way before I met Izaak.

Problems on the Wedding Day:
The only thing that didn't go as smooth on the Wedding day was that the Venue had Load shedding until an hour before my Wedding, needless to say stress levels was running high!

Bride's emotions week before:
As the bride, I must confess I was as calm as ever... I don't know if it was an overdose of nerves that numbed me.

Charlene2Bride's emotions on the wedding day:
Even on the day it self I was so calm I even decided right before the ceremony to give a speech!

My Wedding Day:
I had a super day and even if there was things that went wrong I knew of nothing (except for the load shedding).

Charlene3A dream come true that is the only way I can describe my wedding day! The man I love, Family and friends dear to me and the perfect venue what more can a bride ask for!
