Our love story

It’s been 11 years since we first met.
Wow, what a journey it has been.
That night, 11 years ago, changed our lives forever.
We both happened to be at the same place, at the same time and the rest is all history.
I’ve never been a believer of love at first sight but what happened that night is just something I struggle to explain to people.

Tam’s Story
I was with a group of my friends and suddenly we were interrupted by the entrance of Marc. Everyone whispered “Look there’s Marc Meth” I had no idea who Marc Meth was, but at this point I was certainly intrigued. My best friend at the time was super into Marc so I agreed to be her wing-woman, not realizing Marc had plans of his own.

Marc’s Story
I walked into the party having no idea what was about to happen to me. I was there for a good night with my mates and I was ready to party the night away. The moment I walked in, I saw Tamryn and I knew she had to be mine. Even after 5 double brandy’s, one look at Tamryn and she took my breath away and I sobered up in a matter of seconds.

Since that day it’s been a rollercoaster and yet we still found our way back to each other and here we are getting ready to commit to each other for the rest our lives.
Marc wasn’t used to working so hard for a girl’s attention and I still feel to this day that’s how I won him over.

We’ve loved, we’ve cried, we’ve laughed, we’ve prayed, we’ve moved cities together, we’ve journeyed together through all life’s ups and downs and most importantly we’ve grown together.

When and where is the magic happening?

Wedding registry

We’ve just moved home and have filled it with stuff, from books to sofas, we’ve certainly got enough!
Instead of more wine glasses, we’d really love some cash, so that we can book a perfect honeymoon and head off in a dash.
A romantic beach break would really do the trick, as soon as we can afford it, we’ll be on that plane quick! is owned by Morne Kotze Photo and Design
