Nutcracker Country Retreat, Parys, Weddings

The Nutcracker | Sonnekind | Renardo + Nadine

Renardo wrote a song for Nadine. After his speech he played the beautiful track as performed by JNDR and we will never forget the way they looked at each other right then. We will also never forget the way Nardo looked at his bride as she walked down the aisle towards him. We will never forget that it is ok to still be in love and never fall out of love, despite being together for so long. Seeing them together like this, touched us and we are so happy to have met their amazing family and not only shared in their best day, but shared a bit in who they are!

“Sonnekind” Written for Nadine by Renardo Treurnich. Set to music and performed by Joshua na die Reën

“want hoop se ritme reëndans hemel in my hart
kan daar dan meer as die engel met my gebeur
wat God se gespe in liefde bind
beloof ek verlief op die sonne kind
‘n leeftyd se drome tot ons as reënboë kleur”
