Leani & Lodewyk’s Romantic Winelands Wedding

Leani Lodewyk 15

Recently two of my favourite people in the whole world got married!

Leani and I became friends in 2003 during the first year of high school. Looking back we have been through so many things, and it is such a privilege it is to be able to say that she is one of my most treasured friends after all these years. I still remember the day Leani introduced Lodewyk to us; we thought that we were never going to see him again (being such a group of crazy, loud, in-your-face friends and all), but alas, here we are many years later celebrating the Mr & Mrs!

This has been such a highlight in my year! In addition to that I had not only been so lucky to be a bridesmaid, but I also had the honour of making one of my best friends’ wedding dress. This process was so special to me, and it will be one that I will always treasure.

The dress:

We made Leani’s dress of white satin, with a corded and beaded lace covering the bodice. The back of the dress was the main focus, so we lowered the back slightly. We covered the rest of the back with sheer lace for dramatic effect. The bottom of the dress is covered in layers of tulle.

Leani & Lodewyk, dankie dat ek (en Henco) so groot deel kon speel in julle troudag. Ons stap al ‘n lang pad saam, en ek kan uit my hart uit sê dat ek vir julle huwelik net alles wat mooi is toewens. Mag al julle dae vol liefde, (baie) geduld, genade en vreugde wees! xxx

Lilac Photography did such a superb job capturing all of these precious moments. Feast your eyes on these lovelies!
