Coralea and Rohan. The South African and the Australian. Aka, Shiela and Koos – the two beaded mascots, a springbok and a kangaroo. Very funny and sweet couple! Coralea works as a vet in Australia. Rohan owns a Jack Russell named Flynn. After Flynn’s annual vaccinations, Rohan’s family noticed that Flynn was suddenly off the vet very often for no particular reason. Later Rohan let slip to a group of his friends that there was a ‘hot South African’ working at the veterinary clinic, and by chance Coralea’s sister was among his audience. And so it began….
Their South African weekend-away-celebration (yes, there was also one in Australia) was held at Kwalata Game Ranch in Dinokeng Game Reserve. It was sweltering hot and sunny as predicted, which suited the couple’s sunflower theme and Coralea’s bubbly character perfectly. The spiritual ceremony and reception was held on the Saturday, and breakfast on Sunday included another ceremony and the signing of the register.
