Asalaam (peace be upon you) Beautiful ladies,
WOW! Where do I begin…
A few months ago I was on a verge of a nervous breakdown planning my wedding…lol (dramatic I know).
My fiancé and I (who’s now my husband) were looking to legalize our marriage seeing that getting married Islamic rights aren’t legal in South Africa, and also cause he was Christian embracing Islam and the religion being a sensitive topic. We needed something non-religious for obvious reasons, yet still custom made to our liking. This obviously added to my stress, and I could only turn to my best friend…GOOGLE. I don’t regret going with the first number that popped up, who happened to be Symis’s. I explained my whole life history to Symi (whom I didn’t know from a bar of soap. Lol) Totally chilled (as Symi always seemed to be) and opened minded, listened tentatively and gave me good advice. Shortly after the call I received an email from Ava, we set up our skype meeting and BAM! “Tie the knot Cape Town” was booked for our big day!
You two ladies crept into our lives silently and had such a HUGE impact on our big day you would never believe me. The sound advice you guys so easily gave, the guidance and reminders as to who it’s really about, on our wedding day as well as the rest of our lives meant so much to us. It still plays in my head everyday. Hec! You guys even convinced me to change my surname. Lmao. My husband should pay you extra for that hahaha.
Your humbleness and humour just put the cherry on top of everything during our skype sessions as well as on our big day. I cannot thank you both enough for everything. Your beautiful souls and positive energy is what the world needs more of. I’m glad google brought us together. I wish you everything of the best on all future endeavours. If there’s a couple who’s equipped to take on the world, its Symi and Ava with their beautiful family, who I pray grows one day In Shaa Allah.
Lots of love, hugs & kisses
Wiesahl and Mihkyle Sylvester
