New Year’s Eve and we were at Red Ivory Lodge for our last wedding of the year – it being New Year’s Eve and all. My lasting memory of the day is definitely Candice trying to keep a straight face during the portrait session, or maybe Candice and Justin trying to keep a straight face during the ceremony as Justin tried to fit the wrong ring on Candice’s finger, had a momentary look of concern on his face and burst out laughing a split second after Candice did. The priest scrolling on his kindle? Candice with oversized fake ears and a blow-up guitar? Justin with a tiara dancing with a woman wearing a fake mustache? All candidates, and in between, plenty of laughter.
What a killer bee wedding, and probably the nicest new year we’ve spent in a long time.
Midnight and James’ crew were passing around springbokkies (a green creme de menthe and Amarula cream shooter that always reminds of touring with the Springbok Nude Girls, and Hestrie Cloete – spring bokkie!). V and I hardly ever drink, maybe one or two beers a year – but we decided to toast the end of 2010 anyway, the springbokkie smoothly unknotting the kinks in my neck and marking the beginning of what we hope to be a new chapter in our lives. We wish you and yours the best for the coming year, thank you for your support throughout 2010.
