MR & MRS STEYN | birchwood boksburg weddingOctober 4, 2012

Laetitia & Stephan chose the loveliest day of the year to have their wedding: Spring Day on the 1st of September 2012. Their reception was at Birchwood Hotel & O.R. Tambo Conference Centre in Boksburg, Johannesburg. The weather was perfect, the atmosphere was fantastic & everything just ran so smoothly.  White & lilac were the perfect colour choices for this Spring wedding and Mr & Mrs Steyn looked flawless. I was in awe of Laetitia’s lovely dress!

Here’s Stephan’s version of how they met:

“Being young and having your own car is only fun when you have somewhere to go… Luckily for me I always had some friends that knew about a party where there were many single hot chicks; so off we went! My friends’ “intel” were way off, but at least there was one single, very hot girl that caught my eye but we weren’t introduced to each other and the night just continued. Later that night I was bored and found someone’s phone lying around. Trying to find out whose it is, I went through the phone book and found my name in the phone book but it had the wrong number, so I corrected it. As I did, the owner of the phone came around the corner and who would believe it was that one single hot girl! I then made sure I got her number before I gave it back and that’s how we started chatting… while she tried to figure out where she got my number :)

About 10 months later (after many rejections) we started dating and I have had no regrets; just fun filled days of being happy! Five and a half years later I finally asked the burning question and apparently I chose the wrong moment. She was so shocked the first thing she said was ‘NO’! Not what you want to hear when you are on your knee with a ring in your hand… But luckily she corrected herself very quickly and a year later we had the greatest day of our lives so far!”

Such a cute story and such a lovely couple! I’m so glad Laetitia ended up saying “YES” to Stephan and that we were the photographers at this beautiful wedding.

Congratulations, Mr & Mrs Steyn, my team & I wish you a lifetime of happiness together!
