Jannicke + Malcolm’s Real Wedding at Hertford Hotel

Jannicke + Malcolm’s wedding at Hertford Hotel was all about what the couple love most. Malcolm comes from a Scottish background so all the guys wore kilts. The wedding had a relaxed, country feel to it. Jannicke achieved this feel with hay bales, croquet, lawn bowls, homemade ice-tea & lemonade and some country line dancing. Most important for Jannicke + Malcolm was that the whole day was fun… no pretending, no stressing, just good old fun! Thanks to Laura Jane Photography for sharing these beautiful images with us!

Their love story…

Malcolm and I met 6 and a half years before we got married. Malcolm is best friends with a mutual friend of ours who I went to school with. We met the night after it snowed in Johannesburg… as well as the Eskom power cuts. After an amazing conversation, the power cut out, and Mal kissed me in the dark. A few days later, I was in hospital after an operation, and Mal brought the most beautiful bunch of flowers with balloons. I think that is when I fell deeply in love ♥

Their proposal story…

We decided to plan a trip to Canada to visit Mal’s family. I had never met the majority of them before, and it was our first trip together outside of South Africa. It was planned over our 5 year anniversary, and we had planned to stop over in New York for a week before our final destination. We had an amazing day…Up the Empire State Building first thing in the morning, a quick shop through Macy’s, a trip to Grand Central Station, and eventually we got dressed up for a lunch somewhere special. Mal had kept it a secret as to where we were celebrating (although many signs had pointed to the fact that he was planning to propose). We took the subway and ventured on to our destination. Our stop was far from where he had planned (as we missed our stop), but we had a lot of laughs and fun times running through New York and parts of Central Park to land up at the most beautiful restaurant on the banks of Central Park, The Boat House. A lunch, bottle of wine, and a proposal. It was perfect! The best memory of my life!

On finding the right wedding venue…

After searching online, and visiting only a few venues, we realised we didn’t want the normal wedding. Firstly, costs from the top venues were way above budget, and many venues treated us as strictly business; nothing personal… only banking details and deadlines.
We found a beautiful, warm and welcoming venue. It fit our budget, and accommodated our guests. Perfect isn’t enough to describe it. We fell in love with the venue, as well as the staff.

Best moment…

The whole day was fun, but I think our best moment was during our first dance. We had planned to kick it up a notch with a party song in between our slow dance. Lots of fun and laughing, and I hope we pulled it off. Great memories!

Advice for future brides…

Enjoy it! It’s one day which resembles such an important part of your relationship. It flies by! Make sure you spend wisely; don’t get carried away with too many details; and involve your friends and family. Remember why you are getting married, and put your energy towards the one you love. Focus your energies on the eternal promise you make to your partner, and the rest will fall into place.
