The Wedding Bashers


Wonderland weddings and dogs walking the aisle!

02 November 2017
We have another two quirky weddings coming up on #WeddingBashers – here’s more about the couples.

Amy Harington and Andrew Zengerink

Environmental officer Amy (29) met agricultural agent Andrew (33) on Tinder, and after dating for a year he popped the question in Herald’s Bay. Now the couple are ready for their Alice in Wonderland-themed wedding, white rabbit, Queen of Hearts and fog machine included!

The couple chose the Vintage Yard for their big day because they hope that the river nearby along with the wintry Free State landscape will make a beautiful background for the celebration.

In the run-up to the wedding, Amy and Andrew have been heavily involved in making all the décor elements, with help from their mothers, friends and some handy Easter sales!

The bride is concerned that she may not get all the elements ready for the wedding in time and that she may be very cold on the day as her dress was not designed for chilly weather.

Will Amy’s blue ‘dancing in the clouds’ wedding shoes, white rabbit décor and croquet games be enough to carry the Alice In Wonderland theme off?  And how will their families and friends, most of whom have not really met before, get along?

Yolanda Woest and Pierre van Dyk

Nature-loving couple Pierre (27) and Yolanda (24) have been dating for seven years, since they first met (and argued) at a farewell party for a friend.

Last year, Pierre popped the question at God’s Window and the couple are now all set for their elegant white wedding, which will be held at the farm-styled venue that Pierre’s father built. The venue itself is sentimental for the family, as father and son put up the roof themselves one freezing winter day.

The bride has been very focused on ensuring that it is a simple but elegant wedding, though many of the elements are DIY, such as the fleece blankets Yolanda’s grandmother has made for guests.

Having rescued countless animals over the years, including birds and hedgehogs, the couple’s lab puppy is going to also walk down the aisle as part of the wedding party!

Festive foods include a biltong soup starter, cheesecake and a pizza buffet. Notably, both Yolanda and Pierre enjoy sport shooting and will incorporate this element on their big day…

Yolanda and Pierre are planning a formal and elegant white wedding incorporating everything that they love: family, animals and sport shooting. With the groom’s father, Pierre Snr., the owner of the wedding venue, it’s set to be a memorable day.

The Wedding Bash(ers) is broadcast on M-Net channel 101 every Sunday night at 17:00. Follow all the breaking news and conversations around the show on Twitter @MNet / #WeddingBashers or on the official M-Net Facebook page.
