Tinder created a few of my weddings.... And to be honest.... Some amazing love stories.

I'm a generation pre-Tinder, so I really don't even know how it works. I just know you swipe left or right. Not sure which is which.

But I do know that there are times that Tinder works. There might be 4 or 5 couples from 2022 that got together because of Tinder. Jacobus and Anell are one of those couples.

But it really seems that they are a match made in heaven... and not an app (God works in mysterious ways).

Jacobus is not a character from Big Bang Theory. But he does remind me of a mixture between Sheldon and Leonard. Clever, funny and really good manners (so maybe more towards Leonard)... and into IT. Anell is organised, funny, romantic and beautiful (not saying Jacobus is not). And they compliment each other perfectly.

I really enjoyed our time together. From they first time Anell contacted me... all the way to dropping off their photos. Their wedding was incredible and very beautiful. With lots of planning and small details going towards the people they love. Their family and friends were amazing and so inviting.

Man... going to miss them!!

The Wedding

Anell & Jacobus got married at Rosemary Hill.

A beautiful venue just a few km's away from Pretoria. The venue has some amazing garden, rosemary fields, lavender field, trees and a perfect spot (more like spots) for sunset photos. The dam (about 2km away) is one such location.

The outside chapel is very intimate, with Bougainvillea growing over the roof and on the sides (another amazing spot for photos).

The reception hall, called The Distillery, is open and tastefully decorated.

It really is one of my favourite venues. The staff is also very friendly and helpful.

Nelia Smith Events and Stylist decorated the tables very simple, with bright, and some toned down flowers. You don't want to do too much in a venue that is so beautiful.

Stay MUA did stunning work making Anell look even more amazing.
