Ben and Irene were married at Pietersburg High School, in Polokwane, South Africa. The ceremony was held on the front lawn and the reception in the gym. “Our wedding was described to me by one of my friends as one of the most ‘sharing’ he has ever seen. Meaning that the theme was us, as well as our friends and family”, began the groom. “Everything there was something we loved, or something that meant something to ourselves or our guests, and in most cases both.”

“The venue was very unique in the fact that it was a school. I’ve personally never seen or heard of a wedding held at a school before, but Irene came up with the idea.  he school was full of awesome spots to take photos and we had a lot of space to use (a whole school). Better still it didn’t cost us an arm and a leg.  The other important thing about our wedding was how laid back it was. There where beers available on ice for guests to have whenever they liked, even during the ceremony, which made the whole vibe very comfortable from the start.”
