Hendrik & Sharon

Nooitgedacht – Stellenbosch

Sharon is one of my sister’s best friends and I have been privileged to get to know both her and Hendrik better on a vacation trip to a farm in the stunning Karoo in 2017. The love and adoration they have for each other is so beautiful and their caring hearts for others are evident. Their wedding was so special. The morning started off with a bit of rain, but it all cleared up later and they got married under the big oak trees at Nooitgedacht.

Their ceremony was rich with deep meaning led by Hendrik’s dad. It was so special at the end when close family and friends blessed them as they enter this new covenant together and then they walked out under a prayer shawl as husband and wife.

The pre-drinks took place on the big lawn with live music, games and lots and lots of food. It was truly a big feast with the biggest meat and cheese table I have ever seen! The guests indulged and there was even more canapés served. This reminded me of the feast that the Lord speaks about when he will come one day – it is so special to be part of weddings as this gives us a small glimpse of the abundance and love that we will experience in heaven one day with him.

The flowers, décor and whole style of the wedding was so elegant. All the little details complemented each other so well. From the soft blue and grey bridesmaids dresses to the flowers on the name cards – everything was just stunning. Mandy Fisher and her team did an amazing job with the flowers and Lasché van Heerden designed all the stationery (and she was also one of the bridesmaids).

Hendrik and Sharon opened the dance floor on “Rose of Sharon” from Mumfords & Sons – such a cool song and something completely different than the ordinary. The dessert was a big ice cream table with lots and lots of toppings. There was even some yummy cheesecake with berries for those who rather preferred something else. And last but not least Damascus Road Coffee served freshly brewed cappuccinos. The rest of the night was filled with dancing and laughter.
