Local Drummer Weds His Beautiful Bride On a Rainy Day

De Waal Bothma, drummer for Bobby van Jaarsveld, married his beautiful bride Chanel on a perfect summers day in Middelburg, Mpumalanga.

The couple, who loves Europe, decided on Cabbage and Rose as their venue because of its European finishes – an informal space that is classic and elegant with a slight country-home feeling. They kept to minimal table decor as each table had greenery and bulbs hanging from above, creating a beautifully romantic atmosphere. We asked Chanel which part of the day she loved the most;

‘The whole day was perfect in every way.  The most special moment of the day was definitely when we saw each other in the chapel – knowing that today we become one before all our guests, who are the most important in our lives. We also enjoyed the reception very much –  when everyone could just let go, enjoy themselves with delicious food and music – with friends making music through the night.’

Their day was blessed with a lovely afternoon rain shower – leaving the surroundings clean and fresh, ending the day in the most gorgeous sunset.

There were a few recognisable faces among the guests including Karlien van Jaarsveld, Bobby van Jaarseveld, Ghapi, Irene Louise van Wyk, Joe F, Ivan Roux, Wikus Botma, Wynand en Lindi Delport van Anders.
