Zilke and Philip were married at the beautiful Kleinkaap boutique hotel in Centurion. The venue is situated in a suburban area but is hidden away, and immediately transports one to another world from the moment you enter.
It boasts a huge lush garden and it's easy to imagine that you are in Cape Town when looking at the architecture of the hotel and surrounding buildings.
Philip is based in Scotland and serves in the British Military, and he wore his formal uniform as did both of his groomsmen who flew to South Africa for the wedding.
The two Scotsmen had a pretty hard time getting used to the heat in Pretoria and changed out of their uniforms straight after the groom and groomsmen shoot. The men had to put ice packs on their foreheads to survive the weather until the ceremony commenced.
Pastor Allistair gave a moving service filled with emotion, and the joy and love Zilke and Philip share was visible to all those present.
It was truly a lovely and special day, and I am honoured to have been a part of it.
