Back in full swing for the new wedding season, we start off with Natasha & Ryan’s fun and fabulous wedding at Casalinga.  Their wedding was packed with good laughs and beautiful moments! Casalinga was the perfect setting for their Romantic wedding, not only is Casalinga the “10 Year Winners of Best Romantic Restaurant, the food and service is exceptionally good.  A special thank you to Tracey & Lize from Events Republic for the amazing flowers and décor!

Here is the story of how Tasha & Ryan’s love story started…

It was the weekend of the 18th November. I had my birthday on the 11th November; I spent about 2 days trying to find a place to go away just for a break. Eventually stumbled on this amazing reserve in Vaalwater called Bushwa Game Lodge. Last minute pack up and headed to the resort.  Had game drives and massages planned for the whole weekend – flipping awesome idea. Anyway it was the Saturday and the game drive we went on was longer than usual, on our way back they decided to drop us off back at our chalet room (which was unusual because we where suppose to go for dinner). We arrived at the room and there was a beautiful table set up outside with candles and music, he’d organised our own private dinner at our room (which isn’t unusual for Ryan … He’s always doing special and romantic gestures). Still thinking he’s so sweet and special that he organised our own private dinner I decided to quickly go back to the room to put something warmer on. Ryan kept calling me to come outside in a sense of urgency and panic. He walked me outside to a beautiful area that overlooked the bush…he held me and told me how much he loved, still not thinking anything I was answered yes I love you too?! As soon as he went down on one knee and reached for his pocket I realised what was going on, I think the first word that came out of my mouth was “seriously?!” was so unexpected. I know he uttered this beautiful long reason of why he wanted to marry me and how from the first moment he met me, he loved me. Between both our tears and sobbing and the unbelievable surprised moment he ended with so what do you say? … OBVIOUSLY yes. We spent the night under the stars eating, laughing, crying, calling family and friends – just beautiful. 

Every moment we are together is a sheer blessing from God and we are thankful everyday for finding each other and for the love and trust we share. In Match 2014 I found out that we were 4 weeks pregnant, whole 12 months earlier than we expected. This year has been the most beautiful unexpected, surprising journey, which we would never change for the world. 

We loved every moment of your Wedding day!

Rianka & Floris
