Jo & Kyle

So, earlier this year I had an email from "Kyle" who was not yet engaged, but had already started the wedding planning! I thought "sheesh this guy is keen!" and admittedly was mildly paranoid that I was getting excited of being part of a love story without a concrete engagement! BUT - turns out - Kyle is the LADY part of this engagement (hence the wedding planning / determination / of-course-she-will-say-yes-vibes I was getting!)! Kyles mum loved the name Kyle so much, she went against the norm and used it for her daughter! (You go mum - I love that!!!) After a bit of a chat, Kyle and her man Jo came to meet me at a wedding showcase I was doing - and I was instantly in love with them and hurrying up the engagement (Jo....!). As fellow South Africans who had been living in Brisbane for a similar length of time we had heaps in common! Jo and Kyle decided to hold their wedding at the gorgeous Sirromet Wines. The bride looked absolutely radiant in her gorgeous dress (and know that she is hardly wearing a stitch of make up - how beautiful is she!!), and Jo scrubbed up so well - and despite being a tiny bit sick, his face beamed all day! With only 12 english speaking guests, it really felt like I was back in SA (and I was  surprised at how well I remembered my Afrikaans!!). Jo and Kyle had quite a few guests who travelled from interstate, and overseas, including Kyles mum who has recently been unwell and almost wasn't able to come (though, NEVER tell a determined woman she cant do something!). I felt a bit misty eyed when Kyle was overcome with emotion at having her mum present. The couple had a wonderful and fun reception, with a duo MC team that were full of wit and jokes and made the evening really entertaining (Good job boys!)! These two loved up humans were such a treat to hang out with, clearly deeply in love with each other, and loved by their friends and family. Jo and Kyle, thank you SO much for letting me share in your special day. Your depth and gentleness is extremely admirable, and your love for each other and God is boundless. I pray the most favourable future for you together, and I have no doubt that there are amazing blessings that lie ahead of you. So so much love to you both! xxx
