We arrived at Monate Game Lodge on one of the hottest days last December. I would pop out of the car every now and then to take some images and the heat was simply overwhelming… With the lodge’s air cons all on full blast, we met up with an excited Candace and Palesa, Absolute Perfection’s dream team, while hard at work. We also met the Lodge’s lovely host, Jeannie, who quickly organised for us to get a grand tour of where all the magic would happen the next day. A few hours later, Marilé and Diederik’s family and friends gathered at the bush Boma for dinner, a cozy spot in the bush; the small beginning of a big celebration.
In Marilé’s speech, she spoke about her favourite times with Derick, nothing extravagant, nothing over the top, just conversation that would easily go on for hours, often into the early morning. This kind of love speaks about friendship, partnership and enthusiasm for the other person’s very being.
Diederik and Marilé, not only was your day one that made us feel completely at home, but it was one of laughter, calm, beauty and above all, love…. Massive, uncontainable love.
