From what I understand, it started out as a 1920's themed wedding and soon evolved into a delightful converse themed affair.
In fact, not only was Isabelle's and Emile's impeccable small-breakfast wedding just so idyllically suited to them, it also had Lisa and I swooning and sighing all day long.
It really was a "non-wedding" wedding, if that makes sense, and the ambiance was more akin to an everyday gathering of family and friends - although on this occasion, of course, they were uniting for a celebration that was to encapsulate Isabelle's and Emile's LOVE for each other.
I hope you both enjoy the preview and that Namibia was fab.
Our deepest gratitude to you both for allowing us to spend the perfect day with you!
I think the picture above, has to be my favourite image of 2012!

It's been one of those extra-long weekends, with a whirlwind of childrens' activities that involved a kidnapped Easter bunny, a night egg hunt and countless scores of Easter eggs, so waking up this morning and getting back to the PC needed a huge dose of caffeine in order to get a kick-start for the day.
Hope you had a good one, no matter how you celebrated this long weekend.
Lisa and I were standing outside the venue, watching the merrymaking in full swing, sipping our chardonnay, reflecting on the day's weather, the people's expressions, the cute stuttered vows and those quaint offbeat moments. We both sighed and nodded our heads in agreement - yes, this is what epitomises a marriage ceremony.
There are couples who quite simply remind you of what it's all about. Couples who share a genuine connection that you can't help but be moved by. Most of all, couples with whom you can freely have a hoot and laugh in their presence. That is Anna and Robbie.
While the rain did arrive and abandoned any hope of the intended beach ceremony, Anna never stopped smiling. In fact, Anna getting dressed was one of the most relaxing and fun vibes I've walked into for a long time.
Thank you Lady and Lord Cornwall, we had a "cracking time"!!
A certain person confided that she thought that this was the best wedding venue in the area, I have to agree, Umtamvuna River Lodge is Thailand meet Bali meet beach...just awesome!

So, because I missed St Paddy's day with the boys, we decided to hire a waterslide and celebrate the milestone today; not least because it was a public holiday. . . and, no, we are not Irish.
