In preparation for this special day, they met with Apostle Marc Diedericks and their Shepherd, Gavin Symons in November, 2014. Bernard and Donovan had requested a partnership blessing from their Rector, the Shepherd. They also received a house visit from their House Priest a few days before the ceremony.
Both the wedding ceremony and reception took place at Fraaigelegen Wine Estate, just outside of Cape Town. As part of the ceremony, a choir rendered the anthem "Wher’er Thou goest" and sang "Make no plans without the Lord". Both Bernard and Donovan are actively involved in the music for the Cape District Church. The Shepherd used Psalm 23 for the partnership blessing text word.
The ceremony was attended by many Rainbow NAC members, family, and friends.
