Astrid + LR's Wedding

Tell was your love story! How did it all start and how did the journey lead to a proposal? We met in May 2012 through a friend at her family’s farm in the Free State, although we barely said two words to each other. We met a few times after that at mutual friend’s get-togethers but it wasn’t until 2014 when we were at a Valentines Braai for singles that LR plucked up the courage to ask me out on a date. Our first date was on the 21st February 2014, when the magic happened. We had the most amazing time and only noticed at midnight that we were the only two people in the restaurant and the waiters were waiting patiently for us to leave. We were so excited to see each other again and it didn’t take either of us too long to realise that we had met the person of our dreams.

We got engaged on the 21st January 2015. He made us a romantic dinner at his house and got down on one knee and proposed. I was so overwhelmed with happiness and excitement that he had to ask twice to get an answer out of me. I said yes through tears of complete joy!

Tell us what the inspiration behind your wedding was? How was your wedding fitting to your style and personality?

We are traditional romantics and wanted to spend our special day out in the country in beautiful surroundings.

Where did you get married and what did you love about your venue? 

We loved the idea of a destination wedding so that we could spend the weekend celebrating with our nearest and dearest who travelled from all over the country and world. We found the perfect setting at the beautiful Netherwood Farm in the Natal Midlands The chapel is situated at the top of a hill and has spectacular views of the surrounding rolling Natal Midland hills. On a clear day you can see the Drakensburg Mountain in the distance. We loved the views and the contemporary feel of their chapel and venue. Lidgett’s Grant, Netherwood’s original farmhouse, can accommodate up to 20 people so our immediate family and wedding party were all together for the weekend.

Do you have any tips and advice for couples planning a wedding? 

Communication and proper planning is key. Shop around and request for quotes from various suppliers, get referrals if possible and reconfirm everything in writing. Most importantly relax and have fun planning.

Enjoy your day, no matter what happens, it is one of the most special days of your life.

Did your wedding include any do-it-yourself projects?

No we left it to the experts. :)

Tell us about your experience working with us!

Matt and Philly you were brilliant! We were so comfortable with you and we had so much fun. You were professional from the time we confirmed with you to the special day. Thank you for the amazing work!
