Jess & Ryan met back in 2008 in a Durban Nightclub. Ryan is a professional Dj and Jess worked in one of the clubs that he played at. One of Jess’ friends told Ryan that she liked him however is ego got in the way a bit and it took a while for them to start dating.When they did finally start dating in 2010 Ryan was living in Johannesburg and travelling down to Durban every fortnight for work and Jess used to visit him every other week. Ryan soon realised that Jess was “The One” and made the big move down to Durban. They both settled down together and started their journey as a couple living together. Ryan proposed to Jess in May 2012 however it took him 3 years to build up the courage to finally tie the knot.
Jess and Ryan both have a love for the bush so the big hunt began to find the right venue. A friend recommended Zulu Nyala Game Reserve in Hluhulwe and after visiting the Lodge they knew they had found their dream wedding location. For over a year they planned their big day and it could have not turned out better. The weather played its part, the tears were flowing and most importantly the tequilas went down easily at an amazing party!
