getting ready was one of my favorite moments of our day
the world just stopped
being fussed over is a real luxury
suzy combed and fixed my tresses
dearest sibling kim painted my facade
and fluffed out my dress one layer at a time ( she crawed underneath! )
proper bruid-mille feuille

our bouquets were presented
after their long trek from pretoria
i didn't want any cut flowers
and succulents seemed the ultimate solution
( bouquet has been planted at my parents home in pretoria, and its just sprouted tiny pink blossoms )

the maike/maaikes dropped in
and the tête-à-têtes began
smiles and elation abound all round

it was mizzy outside
but the curtains blew pockets of salty wind into the front room
and kept us crisp
whilst prizing us with ocean'scapes

and i couldn't stop thinking about the man waiting at the end of the garden path
