Which of your wedding pictures has remained your favourite? The pic of Jacques hugging me in the beautiful golden light. I still feel the same way I felt on our wedding day when he scoops me up in his arms. All my cares just melt away!
What changes have happened since your wedding? Well, we left the burbs and are now city dwellers. This was such a dream of mine as we are now in the hub of Cape Town surrounded by creativity and we are loving every minute. We went on our first overseas trip together to London and Paris, which was just incredible. We definitely have the travel bug now! We also both started new jobs which was such an awesome answer to prayers and are now able to spend so much more time together.
Any marriage advice for SBB readers? We have learned so much in the past two and a half years of being married. The best thing about being together is that we laugh ALL the time. Laughter is definitely the best medicine. And hugs. Jacques gives me the BEST hugs. We talk about everything and pray together. Most importantly, our shared faith is definitely what keeps our marriage strong.
Which of your wedding pictures has remained your favourite? It’s still the same one I’ve always loved the most- Greg and I running out of the ceremony while our bridal party cover us in confetti! So special and joyful!
What changes have happened since your wedding? We welcomed our first child, Lucy Grace, last year in March – exactly one year after our wedding, and I am currently 38 weeks pregnant with our second!
Any marriage advice for SBB readers? Remember to make each other a priority, it’s so easy to get caught up in the “busy-ness” of life after your wedding – be it with your jobs or with starting your family; it’s easy to forget just how much you mean to each other when you have so many other things demanding your time and energy! But trust me… You will be a much happier wife a few years down the line if you really feel like you are a priority for your husband, so make sure he feels the same way from you!
Which of your wedding pictures has remained your favourite? My favourite has got to be the one of us holding hands walking back down the aisle together as husband and wife. It was the first few steps on this wonderful journey of life together that just keeps on getting better!Read More
Which of your wedding pictures has remained your favourite? My favourite pic is the one of Ash and myself above. I just love the light and the moment that Catherine managed to capture.
What changes have happened since your wedding? Other than my husband cutting his hair and growing a beard, no real changes have happened in our lives since our marriage two years ago. We have both been working hard in growing our own businesses and aim to travel as much as we can before settling down to start a family. Its really been amazing working towards achieving our goals together.
Any marriage advice for SBB readers? Remember, it’s the regular and small acts of kindness and affection you show to one another that really help build a loving relationship.
Hooray, you guys! Today we’re debuting a brand new feature (which after this you’ll be able to catch on Sundays). This idea came out of a chat I had with my friend Belinda late last year, when she suggested a bit of a SouthBound Bride revisited feature, asking our lovely brides and grooms which is their favourite wedding picture, now that years have passed, and why. I thought it was a brilliant concept (thanks Bel!), and it’s a great chance not only to check in with the couples we’ve featured, but to get their take on life beyond the wedding. Back when I started SBB (when it was still Cap Classique), the very very first bride I featured was my friend Carmen, so I thought it was only appropriate that we kick off our new feature with her and husband Costa too!

What changes have happened since your wedding? We now have another little Savvas in our little family, the mischievious monkey Luka :-) Oh and I’m now officially British :-) Life is a lot more rushed and frantic but so much fun with the little feet running about the house :-)
Any marriage advice for SBB readers? Discuss everything with your partner, be open and honest at all times. Fight, it’s healthy! But always make up and remember to say I love you before bedtime every night :-) A cheesy quote which I saw recently is ‘We don’t get married to escape the world; we get married to heal it together’.
