Cake: Gay Portsmouth (A Cake Story)
Photographer: Justin Govender from InLite Studio
Gelukkie was a truly special venue, we fell involve with it when we viewed it online. It stayed true to our beliefs, a pure magical wedding day! Upon arriving in Paternoster, the Friday evening was a real “kuier aand.” Many guests made a weekend of it and booked accommodation close by. My then finance and I visited everyone that evening and enjoyed a few ‘LOL’s’. Feeling the stress, I burst into tears when viewing the venue set up that evening before, Ruth had brought our ideas to life and it looked so so amazing!
I’m more of a behind the scenes type of person, so the actual wedding day was incredibly overwhelming for me personally. Plenty of feelings all at once, I couldn’t eat and just about finished a glass or two of champagne. I was just trying to take everything in, in all it’s amazement. Guests absolutely loved the mussel starter, lamb mains & fresh salads. Everything from the venue, “flowers” (leaves) to the food was simple, yet executed superbly, and that made all the difference. Not forgetting that our guests enjoyed the bar quite a bit too!! The sparkler pictures always give me goosies, as it takes me back to our first dance…. and a full on party with our close family and friends!
