Tim and Lynne’s wedding took place in Stellenbosch earlier this year. It was sunny and warm without a hint of wind or rain and thus the day was just perfect. Lynne embraced the architectural outlines of Landtscap Estate and chose an earthy- chic and relaxed style for the table décor and flowers. She looked incredibly elegant in her custom made wedding gown with beaded bodice, soft, flowing skirt, and big floppy bow on the back. We love the fresh colour of her bridesmaids’ dresses and the gents looked just as dashing. As Monica Dart snapped away the couple savoured every moment of their big day which they celebrated with 100 of their closets friends and family.

Tell us how you met and how Tim eventually proposed?

Our story doesn’t have a fairytale beginning, in fact it all started in a dodgy club and some terrible flirting. But it was a lot of fun, with plenty of laughs and that is exactly how our lives have been ever since. Although we had already been dating for a few years, Tim’s proposal was quite a surprise. We were sipping on lemoncello on a beautiful beach in Sorrento when it happened. I should really have realised something was up when Tim forgot to bring his board shorts to the beach and while I was happily getting comfortable he was pacing back and forth and kept disappearing to the nearby restaurant. Eventually he settled down and pulled out a box with a ring. I think that he may have said some beautiful things. I was too excited, I don’t remember a word. Just that I said yes!
Although the whole day was beautiful and all the décor and detail was perfectly put together, the most important thing for us was to have a fun and laid-back celebration with our closest friends and family.

What song did you choose for your opening dance?

We chose “Home” by Phil Phillips. It’s a laid-back and fun song. We didn’t want anything too mushy. We also got very sucked into American Idol last year and rooted for Phil Phillips the whole way.
