Kerry and Alfred met 5 years ago… through rather traumatic circumstances. A mutual friend misunderstood the meaning of a red robot. An ankle was severely damaged in the process. Kerry was subsequently invited to the “cast coming off party” where she met an old piece of cheese and a guy that never bought her flowers. The rest is history … Kerry was invited to the next group gathering where the couple met. Kerry thought Alfred was grumpy and unfriendly but after a group week-end away at Sun City … It was love and in October of 2009 they officially become a couple. In 2011 they bought their first house together and in October 2013 got engaged.
When we got engaged, we knew that we wanted a wedding in the Midlands, a place that had become very special to us, and on a weekend trip with Kerry’s parents, we found our ultimate venue. Providence offered everything that we could have asked for, with its picturesque gardens and intimate chapel. So we set the date, 20 September 2014, as the first day of our new life together. Once we got started and had Fern & Kevin there to help every step of the way, we knew that we had made the best decision possible.
Our BIG day was everything that we could have imagined. Our friends and family coming all that way to celebrate the start of our life together, was more than we could have asked for and the love that we felt on the day made it even more memorable. The weather may have been ‘slightly’ chilly but as the party got started at the reception all of that was forgotten, as we partied late into the night. Now it seems the day that we planned for and waited for, for almost a year is gone and we are now officially a family… Mr & Mrs DeBruyn xx
