Trust your heart if the seas catch fire.


Lauren & jh

dive for dreams
or a slogan may topple you
(trees are their roots and wind is wind)

trust your heart
if the seas catch fire
(and live by love
though the stars walk backward)

honour the past
but welcome the future
(and dance your death
away at this wedding)

never mind a world
with its villains or heroes
(for god likes girls
and tomorrow and the earth)
- E.E Cummings

We are travelers on a cosmic journey, stardust, swirling and dancing in the eddies and whirlpools of infinity. Life is eternal. We have stopped for a moment to encounter each other, to meet, to love, to share. This is a precious moment. It is a little parenthesis in eternity
- Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist

“It was surely the most magical, love-filled weekend with family, friends, the full moon and Easter all thrown in together.”
- Jolynn Minnaar, herself


A special mention to all the talented fingers involved in this magical wedding in the heart the Karoo.
