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 ūüôā
We made some small talk in the queue, connected on 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 married¬†in¬†the exquisite Shepstone¬†Gardens, which was a dream come true.¬†Our wedding colours were jewel tones like¬†Marsala¬†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 the¬†aisle¬†(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.
