For many years Justin and Beth had known about each other through mutual friends but their paths had never crossed. That all changed the day that their group of friends went to see a show at the Heritage Theatre and the pair finally got talking. Soon after Justin friend requested Beth on Facebook (the start of all great love affairs don’t you know?) and as they say, the rest was history. Fast forward 3 years and Justin was down on one knee proposing to Beth, a much anticipated new adventure was about to begin.
Whilst looking at other venues in Ballito, they stumbled across Braeside. After seeing the venue and its stunning, tropical environment they knew it was the perfect place for them to get married. It was everything they envisioned for their wedding day, especially the ‘indoor and outdoor feel’ which would provide the ideal backdrop for a typical Durban Summer’s evening.
6 months later, on a beautiful November afternoon, Justin and Beth became husband and wife.
When asked to describe their day, this is what they said:
‘People always refer to their wedding day as the best day of their lives, and it sounds so cliché. But honestly our wedding truly was the best day of our lives! It was everything we could have hoped for and more. There is something so magical about a day that focuses on celebrating the love you have for another person, and having all your favourite people in the world gathered to enjoy in that celebration. It brings about an indescribable sense of joy and contentment. It will always be such a precious memory to us. We wanted our day to not only be about us but we wanted it to reflect us in every way: in the food, decor and music. Our motto for the day was “Eat. Drink. Be festive.” and we achieved just that! What added to the happiness of the day for us was that it was not only the joining together of two people in marriage, but also of our families joining together. So at the end of the day not only did we walk away with a new spouse but we got a whole new set of parents, grandparents and siblings!
We are so excited to finally be married and can’t wait to welcome in the rest of forever, together!
