They say distance makes the heart grow fonder. While I have to admit, I’ve never been a fan of distance when it comes to relationships nor am I fond of the word fond to describe the way two people feel about each other, somehow, this next couple makes the whole thing sound utterly romantic.
Bronwyn + Ollie met in Grahamstown, South Africa when they were both working on their first year as an assistant teacher, or as they refer to it, their “stooge” year. When Ollie returned to the UK that next year to finish University, Bronwyn stayed in South Africa to work. For the next 3 years, their relationship grew stronger and their love for each other blossomed. For 3 years, they lived in different countries – different continents in fact! For 3 years, they wrote and they telephoned and they made trips to visit each other as often as they could. And after 3 years, they had had enough! So Bronwyn packed up her belongings and moved to the UK to be with Ollie.
And this past December, this lovely long distance love affair finally became a happily ever after. Ollie + Bronwyn traveled back to where it all began and were married at the exclusive Steenberg Golf Club, near South Africa’s Cape Town city center. After looking through these stunning images sent to us by their talented photographer, Eric Uys, the thing that’s really pulling at my heartstrings is the look of complete contentment and sheer happiness that was captured in virtually every image. Bronwyn is glowing and Ollie looks like he won the lottery of love.
From the bride herself: the day was INCREDIBLE! The weather was stunning, everything went according to plan and it was really a day of celebration and love! I had finally married my soul mate and it was just incredible!!
