COU­PLE: Jon­ice de Vil­liers and Wian Laid­law VENUE: Landtscap, Stel­len­bosch BUD­GET: R150 000 GUESTS: 40

Wian pro­posed to his then-girl­friend of 18 months, Jon­ice, dur­ing a hol­i­day in Botswana. “They say to test your love you have to travel to­gether. It worked for us!” says Jon­ice (32), a make-up artist and hairstylist. And she did not hes­i­tate to say yes when Wian (31), who owns a trans­port com­pany, asked the ques­tion on the banks of the Chobe river un­der a starry sky and full moon.

Their wed­ding day at Landtscap in Stel­len­bosch eight months later was far re­moved from their camp­ing ad­ven­ture – there was noth­ing rus­tic about the ele­gant af­fair with a colour scheme of black, gold and crys­tal.

Even though an icy wind forced them to move the cer­e­mony in­doors, the Pre­to­ri­abased cou­ple say they loved ev­ery­thing about their glitzy day of love.
