Buyi (who resides in Pretoria), has such a calm energy and one feels very relaxed and comfortable in her company. We met earlier this year and stayed in touch regularly, counting down the days. Buyi prepared at “Stokkies and Skulpies” guest house in Rainbow Valley – a beautiful, modern, spacious unit overlooking a river in a tranquil setting, where you can watch the yellow masked weavers build their nests. Throughout the morning, Buyi was composed and as soon as the bridal car arrived (a classic, vintage mercedes from Classic Car Hire), she became excited and ready to walk down the aisle and marry her beau, Nathi. Their ceremony was intimate and held under a nomadic stretch tent, shading guests from the heat, whilst the open sides allowed guests to enjoy gorgeous views of the dam and surroundings at Cypress Dale Wedding Farm. At the reception I loved how all the older ladies, moms, aunts and grannies came together and had their own special dance with the bride. At the end of the evening, the uncles and grandpas joined in and and created a tunnel for the bride and groom to walk under. This put a huge smile on my face as I watched the older folk having a delightful time,  and swaying their hips to the beat of the music. The day was magical and rather hot. At one point in the evening, I left the reception for a few minutes and stood on the deck overlooking the dam to capture some photos of the purple lilies and  swimming ducks with their entourage of ducklings behind them, and was pleasantly surprised by the welcoming soft shower of rain that cooled the air, further blessing their wedding day. The highlight was observing the perfectly formed rainbow that had set above the dam, a beautiful sight and ending to the day.

“If we love each other, God lives in us, and his love has been brought to full expression through us”. 1 John 4:12
