Blessings Abound!

- Chantal Schoeman -

What better way to spend a Saturday afternoon, than to experience a Prince Albert wedding. For one thing is guaranteed; you’re in for some sensory enchantment!

And so it was: this union of wine-maker, Mariska (daughter of Skallie & Sterna Schreuder from Cape Town) to businessman/farmer, Willie (son of David-John & Martie Vorster from Prince Albert), held on 3rd May 2008.

Gallant best-men, DJ and Izak Vorster and their exquisite sister and flower girl, Bianca, steered (and held) a captive audience in to the church, until the arrival of the bride. Mariska bedazzled in her champagne-hued taffeta dress. Willie, in his tailcoat and Mariska’s sister and bridesmaid, Natasha, completed the magical ensemble standing before Dominee Briers.

Outside, another vision to behold was the bolt blue wedding Cadillac parked in all her vintage glory at the NG Kerk entrance.

More delights ensued! Johanna Luttig and her team had transformed the showground hall in to nothing short of a wonderland. From the floral creations, to the sumptuous snacks, buffet and daintiest dessert selection; clearly, these were master craftspeople at their finest.

As guests danced to both live and DJ-ed tunes, nature (to be expected) had the final say. The ultimate Karoo blessing – raindrops on a tin roof, heard faintly, past the luxurious drapery of the hall’s inner sanctum.
