It isn’t often you manage to get such a group of cosmopolitan people in one place at the same time…come on Rachel and Wendy’s wedding at Alpine Heath Resort in the Drakensberg. It was a clash of cultures and sexes in so many different ways, it is hard to contemplate where to start explaining the fusion that was this wedding. Rachel, a Jewish-American girl from New York, smoothing out the more robust edges of the African culture with Wendy, a Zulu girl from the small town of Ladysmith in South Africa.
If I had to go into detail about everything that went down at their wedding, it’ll take a while, and your jaw will drop. With the mixture of cultures it seemed we were heading for a difficult day, but at the end everything was so beautifully balanced. Rachel with her Jewish-American contribution contrasted delightfully with the traditional singing and dancing from the Zulu culture Wendy’s people brought to the wedding.
A special mention has to go out to the people from Absolute Perfection for managing the day like total pros, and getting the decor for the wedding absolutely spot-on. It all just contributed to the unique balance this we were so blessed to share with Wendy and Rachel.
