Beverley & Kent said their vows on the 11th of May 2013, a rainy winter’s day, at Three Rivers – a lovely boutique hotel in the Vaal/Vereeniging area. Beverley was a bridesmaid at a previous wedding we covered and it was great seeing her as a bride. Both of them looked amazing – I just love her fitted gown & those vibrant blue bridesmaid dresses. A storm started brewing just before the couple’s photo session and we had a chance to play around with umbrellas and undercover areas for a change. Fortunately, Three Rivers Boutique Hotel had a wide variety of undercover options ;)

How did you meet/fall in love and how did the proposal happen?
Beverley: “We met in first year varsity at Wits. Kent was the quiet guy and I was the lost blonde girl. I asked him if he was in my physics class and we started chatting occasionally. Kent was so quiet that I actually thought he found me to be annoying, so when he asked me out (via SMS) I was rather stunned and confused. Kent proposed after eight years, in our home. He put the ring box in between a huge spread of sushi (my favourite food)… It was a random day in the week and so was very unexpected.”

Can you tell me about your inspiration – how did you do things differently?

Beverley: “I don’t know if I was inspired by anything, I just love blue, black and silver. I like plain and simple and I wanted to minimise flowers… I think it was pretty painless.”

What was your favourite part or things about your wedding?
Beverley: “My favourite part was when we left the chapel, all our guests were lined up to throw the petals, it was starting to rain, the sky was dark and a storm was brewing (I love a good storm)… The best part apart from marrying my awesome husband was seeing all the people I love and care about in the same place together and they were all so happy for us.”

What advice/tips do you have for other couples in the process of planning their wedding?
“Don’t overspend, it is your one special day, but it is a lot of money for one day. Guests don’t really care about the food and venue, they just go to have a good time… and if they truly deserve to know you or be there they won’t care about all those things.
You can save time and money by allowing people to help… the best advice I got from a friend when I started planning was to let people help if they offer to do so ;)”

Is there anything else you would like to add?
“Never, ever, order a dress you have not tried on or sat down in… ha ha ha lol… that was fun.”

We really enjoyed capturing the moments at this sweet couple’s precious day! Congratulations Mr & Mrs Vertue; we wish you a lifetime of happiness together :)
