Having to make the difficult decision to postpone their wedding, creative Dan decided to turn the couple’s house in Constantia into a makeshift wedding venue.

He secretly spent the entire night before crafting his own alter, wedding banner and every guest from cardboard, which meant Gabi was able to awoke to a beautiful, DIY lockdown wedding.
