Scorching hot day. Once I got out of the car, I could only focus on Michael. No way could I take my eyes of my future. Best. Moment. Ever.
We had a wonderful friend officiate our vows that made it even more memorable. And after the ceremony was complete.... Well, we had some serious celebrations to commence.
Oh! My! Goodness! We had a tropical honeymoons-moons! In friendly Mauritius. At Solana Beach Resort. We had an AMAZING time there. The resort staff were super friendly. Making our time there so much more than what we expected. The tour guides we had were a fountain of knowledge. Sun, sand, sea and amazing cocktails included!
I did not have a particular look in mind. It was more of a mix and match to be honest. I find the 1950’s style dresses to be particularly flatering for all ladies. I was lucky enough to find an amazing lady and her team to design an complete my dress. I was extatic with the final result. Hair and make-up was done by a sweet girl that I came across on the web! She was a blast to work with and knew precisely what would suite me. My jewelry was my “borrowed” and “old” from my lovely sister and amazing mom. As for lingerie.....
We had both our ceremony and reception at Rhebokskloof wine estate in Paarl. The ceremony was lakeside while our reception was in the Dutch Manor House.
