Wedding Celebration: Renaldo and Estelle Giles

Why did you choose your home town as your Wedding destination?

Our romantic journey started in our hometown Uniondale. Our love story is somewhat unique, we fell in love twice! This is where we live and share our daily lives with family and friends.
Our hometown is close to our hearts!

The Wedding décor was the ultimate DIY.
You transform an old barn into a magical place that had a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Long tables with elegant wooden chairs feature a minimalist layout.
Every detail was personal and unique. This communicates a lot about you, and what is important to you.

All the Wedding stationary and gifts was personalized with engravings. You went the extra mile to make your bridal party feel special and appreciated. I am in love with you’re your little detail, especially the keepsake boxes for the Bridesmaids and the funky multicoloured socks for the Groomsmen.


Why did you personalize their gifts?

We are both lucky and privileged to have very special friends in our lives. They are there when we need support. We celebrate life together. It was as small gesture show our appreciation.

The church itself is wondrous and magical, adding to the beauty of the special day itself. Imposing architectures an obvious element to use for dramatic images inside and outside.


You tied the knot in front of family and special friends. Why did you choose a Church and not any other venue?

I grew up in that church. We share very strong religious believes. It is my father’s congregation and it is a beautiful sandstone church that represents so much more for us!

What did you enjoy most about the Reception?

It was so special to see that everyone is enjoying themselves.
We made time to mingle with family and friends. We shared this special evening with each other. A memory that we will treasure forever.
The trendy Burgers was such hit. Our cake was delicious. The DJ set the mood with fantastic choice of music. We really just enjoyed every moment!

What would your top tip be?

Don’t over-complicate things. Rather plan ahead and leave it to the experts to execute! Relax and enjooooy everything ALL the time!! It only last for a little while but it’s the best time ever!!
If you could take a few seconds every so often just to stop and embrace the moment.
