James & Stacey

Our blog



I’ve been an reader of your blog for some time now, and I enjoy reading your blog on a regular basis.

Recently I’ve been researching an idea for a blog post about human hair wigs – and then I thought that this could be a great contribution for your audience.
I’ll make sure the piece overflows with information that can’t be found anywhere else.

What do you think? Should I write it up and send you a draft?
Here are some topics you maybe interested:
[What are the different types of human hair wigs?]
[What do I need to know about human hair wigs?]
[What is the best human hair wig?]

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

James and I have been backwards and forwards about what to do with regards to our wedding during this global pandemic. Do we postpone in the hopes that things settle down next year? Or do we go ahead with the wedding and adhere to the president’s rules and regulations regarding social gatherings. We have guests coming from overseas as well, as a guest list that exceeds the 50 people limit.  James and I, regardless of what the pandemic throws at us now, have decided that we could not wait any longer to get married. We have already been engaged for 15 months and we are beyond excited to start this new journey together.

Last night, 16 September 2020, the president addressed the nation and put our minds at ease and made our hearts incredibly happy. International travel will be resuming before the wedding and although we can have more guests than expected, we did have to cut our lists down from the original list we made at the end of last year. But If the corona virus has taught us anything it’s to never take anything for granted and be thankful for what we have. Thank you, Cyril!

This year has been an incredibly difficult year for everyone, and we cannot wait to celebrate and party until the early hours of the morning!

We are very blessed to have two incredible families that we can share life’s beautiful moments with. James and I are very family orientated and we want to include our families in our wedding celebrations as much as possible. When deciding on a wedding date, James and I were quite sold on getting married in December. After some investigation we realised that my grandparents (my Mom’s parents – Werner & Ingeborg Billekens) got married on the 12th of December 1959. With my parents being married on my other grandparents’ (my Dad’s parents – Roy & Mary Patrick) wedding date of the 31st of January, we felt that there was no better date to get married on, than the same day as my grandparents’s Billikens wedding date.

We have incredible role models to look up to and we can only hope that we are able to love each other and build an incredible future for our children and grandchildren as they all once did.


Planning a wedding can be daunting, scary and nerve-wracking at the best of times. I mean it is the day that your families come together, a day that you become husband and wife and probably the biggest party you will hold in your lifetime. Now, with the current pandemic happening it becomes 10 times worse. Our future is unpredictable at this point and, even if we planned everything out perfectly, some things are completely out of your control.

After a lot of consideration, we have decided that we are getting married on the 12th of December 2020, but we are not certain of the restrictions that we will have at the time. Having said this, we want to plan our wedding day without the fear of “what if.” We want to give everyone something to look forward to and we want people to realise that even though we don’t know the end date to this, there will be a time that COVID-19 becomes a chapter in the history books.

Some guests will hopefully be coming from overseas and we are very understanding of the uncertainty of international travel during these times. We are taking it day by day and we are holding thumbs that you will be able to join us.

James and I are extremely lucky to have such an incredible support structure that has helped us, mentored us and played big roles in our lives and our story together. This occasion is as much about you as it is about us. We want our families and friends to enjoy this occasion. We want it to be a weekend filled with love and laughter, something we can cherish forever and memories we can look back on in 60 years’ time.

With everything that has happened this year, it has made us realise the importance of family, how much we love each other and that no matter what life throws at us, that we must make the most of every situation and that we can get through everything as long as we have each other.

Thank you for your constant support during these times…we cannot wait to celebrate with you all!
