Wedding | Riaan & Marlè
It’s been 2 years already, happy 2nd anniversary Marlè & Riaan!
Seeing that this blog was not running 2 years ago, I decided to share their pretty wedding at Summerfields Rose Retreat in Hazyview, from 2 years ago, as a special anniversary gift.
Everything from the flowers at the ceremony thorough to the thank you gifts on the table were made by the couple and their friends and family. Everything complimented the stunning, stunning venue. They had their ceremony on the banks of the river under a very romantic, beautifully draped canopy. This whole wedding was filled with love and laughter and it was such an honor to be a part of this and getting to be the one to capture it all.
Marlè & Riaan, you are still one of my favorite couples and I’m still totally in love with your wedding. May you be blessed in your marriage with years of happiness & love.

Why was I so desperate to have a natural birth?
Yes, it would have been a most empowering experience for me and yes my next one will be a VBAC, but was it really that important in the bigger scheme of things? At the end of it all we got what we set out to achieve – a human being that we could guide and mould and set free into the world for her to make her own impact. Maybe that trauma she and I both endured in getting her Earthside happened exactly how it was supposed to. That’s birth and even more so parenting – you set off on a course with big plans and that’s great, but there has to be flexibility and acceptance in changing course depending on whatever life (or your kid) throws at you.
After a minute or so we heard your first loud cry. It was glorious and we could finally breathe. Sr Lotter brought you to us and our hearts melted, my boy. You were beautiful. We checked for 10 fingers and 10 toes and we couldn’t stop looking at you. The happiest moment of our lives. You were born at 11:33 weighing 3.49kg and measuring 53cm.
