18 Mar Marinka & Boun | Mabula Game Lodge, Limpopo
Nothing like having the majority of your guests fly from Canada, Bermuda and the States for your wedding, only to hear that the nearest town that you have to drive through to get to the venue is completely washed away and the roads are closed due to perpetual heavy downpours and bursting dam walls. Boun sounded confident over the phone though and alas we passed through Bela-Bela the next day without any hint of trouble at all. Not only that , but the day was a stunner. Clear blue skies with just enough cloud cover to keep things manageable ito the heat. A lovely day indeed in the bushveld.
The wedding saw a relaxed crowd, many bermuda shorts walking around, plenty dancing and a lot of catching up conversations that I guess carried on long after we left. This must have been one of the only weddings where we were booked till after 11, but the formalities must have been done by 7. I mean speeches, main meal, dessert, the works, done, 7pm. Boun made it clear that they were there mainly to party, and they intent to get that going ASAP. No kidding.
Here are a few quick selects from the day:
