the reason that we managed a flying visit back to South Africa was to be at the wedding of our friends, Annie and TJ. Annie's family has a stone fruit farm 1.5 hours outside of Cape Town in a lush valley that we know well from our own wedding 5 years ago. the service was held in the small chapel on the farm, with guests being ferried to the door by tractor.
as is fitting of this couple, it was a warm, relaxed and meaningful service, with plenty of laughter and applause. these two are meant to be.
