Where did you meet each other?

We met at the UK consulate when we were both queuing for a UK visa appointment to go to the 2015 Rugby World Cup in London šŸ™‚
We made some small talk in the queue, connected onĀ Facebook, went on our first date soon after and as they say the rest is history!

In short, tell us about your wedding day:

We got marriedĀ inĀ the exquisite ShepstoneĀ Gardens, which was a dream come true.Ā Our wedding colours were jewel tones likeĀ MarsalaĀ red, navy blue, plum, mustard yellow and a lot of greenery with vintage gold geometric shapes filled with candles. Everything looked perfect in the venue’s glass marquee reception area. Our day was filled with so many beautiful moments: From when my dad fetched me for the ceremony and when our eyes met for the first time as I walked down theĀ aisleĀ (it was magical!) until we sang Bohemian Rhapsody early the next morning on the dance floor with some of our guests.

What is your definition of a successful marriage?

Respect each other, encourage each other, make time for each other and always have open communication.
