MR & MRS DE WIT | diamond 4 estate muldersdrift weddingJanuary 15, 2013

posted in Real Weddings

I am never quite sure what to expect when I meet a couple for the first time on their wedding day, but I was pleasantly surprised when I met this lovely, down-to-earth couple!
Rina & Stian said their “I do’s” on the 10th of November 2012 and chose Diamond 4 Estate in Muldersdrift as their wedding venue.  It was a perfect day – even the rain decided to stop so that we could take some couple shots!

Rina and Stian based their wedding theme on the film Fireproof. This film has an iconic scene where a salt and a pepper shaker are glued together to indicate the bond between a husband and wife – hence the salt and pepper shakers on Mr & Mrs de Wit’s wedding cake as well as the cute sets they gave as wedding favours!
Here are two memorable quotes from the film, Fireproof:

“Salt and pepper are completely different. Their makeup, their taste, and their color is different. But you always see them together. They give a more delicious taste to the cooked food.”

“When two people get married, it’s for better or for worse, like these joined salt and pepper. For richer or for poorer. In sickness and in health. If you pull them apart, you’ll break either one or both of them.”

Rina has some advice for future brides & grooms:

It is your wedding day; do things YOUR way!
There will always be something that you are going to forget but no one will notice it unless you say something….

Mr & Mrs de Wit, thank you for making us a part of your wedding day – may your salt and pepper shakers be glued together forever!
