We have just returned from a very hectic (by Cape Town standards) weekend of wedding activities in Johannesburg. It started with the bachelor and bachelorette parties on Friday evening, just an hour or two after our arrival in Johannesburg. To our surprise Bryan and I had been invited to participate in these functions and had a great deal of fun at our respective parties.
On Saturday the bride and groom treated the mothers, sisters and bridal party to breakfast and a massage at a local Spa. It was wonderful. Thank you guys! This was followed by a visit to my sister and her family in Pretoria for a few precious hours with my Mum, brother and their family up from Durban for the wedding. Then it was back to Johannesburg to shower and change and head out to a local restaurant for a delightful dinner hosted by the bride and groom for the wedding party and their partners. Another very enjoyable event and another big thank you guys!
Sunday. What a wedding! My new daughter looked gorgeous and you can see that they are very much in love. She really knows how to organise and that means organise in a big way. It was absolutely wonderful, a real fairytale wedding held at Long Meadows in Fourways. A friend of the bride for 20 odd years did one of the readings. There was not a dry eye in the house! The speeches at the reception were magnificent with more tears and much laughter! The food was superb and the music just right. We danced the evening away.
