Aimee and Marco met through mutual friends while on holiday in Cape Town. In fact, Aimee's cousin was enjoying a summer romance with one of Marco's friends! This meeting however, was possibly the foundation of things to come but it was not to be an instant relationship. It was only when both Aimee and Marco had moved to Cape Town that a firm partnership developed.
The proposal was completely unexpected Aimee says; "We got together on the morning of my birthday and went out for an early morning breakfast to Camps Bay. It was quite cold and I was exhausted having just returned from a business trip overseas. After breakfast Marco tried to get me on to the beach with me moaning and groaning about it being too cold. I finally agreed after lots of strong persuasion and persistence on his part, and before I knew it he was down on one knee... the rest I admit, is slightly blurry for as I was in complete shock."
The entire wedding was held on the spectacular MolenVliet Estate. The ceremony delivered a vintage farm ambience amongst the lush vineyards. Prior to the ceremony guests were offered refreshments served from wooden tables topped with old fashioned farm crates, each filled with bottles of ice tea. Flip flops and fans were displayed on old ladders.
