Celebrating Janine and Daan’s Wedding

The Coronavirus is causing widespread concern and affecting businesses around the world, from large corporations to small mom and pop shops. Global stock markets have plunged, restaurants are reporting fewer patrons, and the travel sector is getting hammered. This was my last wedding before government declared certain strict rules with regards to the gathering of 100 people or more.

It was a wet and rainy Friday the 13th wedding in Pretoria East, but this did not stop the couple at all in celebrating their love for each other. Ivory Manor, not only do you have one of the most exquisite venues in Pretoria, but your staff are truly amazing – well done I will surely give you a 6 star rating!

Leanne and Neil’s Chez Charlene Wedding

Sharing Leanne and Neil’s surprise Great Gatsby 50th birthday celebration combined with a surprise wedding.

Neil and Leanne had a slightly different plot to that the book reads; they found each other a little later in life, rather than earlier. Neil was full of surprises and he arranged for the best entertainment of the evening yet. Entertainment that would leave the guests surprised, excited and joyful. Neil did not only host and celebrate his 50th Birthday Party, he secretly surprised all his guests and got married to the love of his life, Leanne on the exact same day.

Have a look at the blog post on Chez Charlene’s website!
