Earlier this week, Deone Rossouw shared photos of her wedding reception on In en om die huis' Facebook page.

Rossouw explained they lost their venue a month before their wedding. However, instead of spending thousands of rands on another venue, the couple made a genius plan to make their day special and save a lot of money at the same time.

Briefly.co.za translated Rossouw's post, which was originally written in Afrikaans.

"Our wedding at home....We lost our venue a month before our wedding. So, we got married at our house, where we made and did everything ourselves."
"I hope it inspires and shows weddings do not have to cost hundreds of thousands of rands. This was my fairytale wedding," she wrote.
