However, we were not able to be there...neither were her parents....nor any of her family or his for that matter!
You see, the marriage took place across the Atlantic in Florida, USA where she and her husband work.
With Wendy being South African and Jose Puerto Rican, it was a small affair at the actual venue BUT back in Cape Town there was celebrating none the less!
Grant's step mom, Poppie who also celebrated her birthday yesterday held a "reception" at her house for family and friends while the bride and groom made their appearance via Skype!
The wonders of modern technology meant that Wendy and Jose in Florida were able to speak to (and see) everyone in S.A. on their wedding day AND talk to Bruce (Grant's dad) who is working in England at the moment!!
There were toasts and congratulations and joyful merriment all round and even a few tears - of joy!
CONGRATULATIONS WENDY and JOSE!!
