We recently rounded up our top 12 bridal galleries and while we each have our favourites, one couple – and their dreamy love story and exquisite wedding album - stood out from all the rest.
Our reader votes determined that our 2010 Bride of the Year competition goes to Leonita & Richard, who first laid eyes on each other in a library, before being properly by a mutual friend. Aaah, swoon!
After dating for 5 years, the couple got engaged, spent a considerable amount of time planning their nuptials and finally tied the knot on 18 December 2010.
Looking absolutely radiant on her wedding day, Leonita walks us through her wedding story in the gorgeous album that has made her and her husband a winner.
What they've won:
Thanks to Madikwe River Lodge which is situated on the banks of Groot Marico River, the couple can look forward to a second honeymoon which includes a 2-night stay, breakfast, lunch, supper, as well as a once in a lifetime game drive experience!
With beautiful scenery, a relaxed setting, the lodge/hotel is perfect for a romantic, honeymoon stay.
