Magical Moments

 

The most memorable part of our wedding day was walking down the isle and then saying our own personal vows to each other. I also enjoyed being able to celebrate our special day with loved ones and friends.

The Honeymoon

 

We had an unforgettable honeymoon and explored Alaska and British Columbia (Canada).

My Special Day

I wore the beautiful Augusta gown by Sophia Tolli which I purchased from Bridal Manor. It was ivory and had a gorgeous chiffon skirt with a long trail and a beaded bodice with a low back. I wore my hair in an elegant up-style and my make up was soft and natural. My shoes were from Anella wedding shoes, satin ivory with peep toe (Lizette). I wore classic pearl earrings and a pearl bracelet.

My Bridal Beauty Regime

I tried to stay fit and healthy by exercising 3 times a week and watched what I ate for 2 months before the wedding:-) I had never followed a strict facial regime and I am glad I decided to change that 6 months before the wedding. I started using Nimue facial products and what an incredible difference it has made to my skin. I did a few sunbed sessions a month before the big day and I did have my teeth whitened. I am happy I went the extra mile with my bridal beauty regime as I felt beautiful on my wedding day.

Wedding Elements

We opted for a natural bush wedding and did not go over board with the decor. Our colour pallet was protea pink, sage and beige. Our ceremony was held in the middle of the bush and there was not alot of decor done there as we wanted to keep it natural. For the flowers we used pink proteas, blushing brides, seed pods and greenery which were placed in a wooden box as the centre piece on the tables. We also used a few wooden laser cut signage boards made by Tian from lazer classic. All in all we did not use alot of decor and tried to keep it simple but elegant.

My Groom And His Groomsmen

The groom wore a brown waist coat made by The Green Taylor with a white shirt, beige pants and brown shoes and belt. The groomsmen complemented the groom by wearing white shirts, beige pants, brown shoes and belt without the waistcoat.

Beautiful Bridesmaids

My bridesmaids wore stunning Gelique dresses with a lace bodice and satin skirt. The colour of the dresses were green and champagne.

Who was your marriage officer?

Our marriage officer was Nigel Levings

My Captured Moments

Our photos were captured by the talented Zeone from June and July. She was very professional, made us feel at ease and was alot of fun. Our videographer was Andre from Motion Craft Films. His work is amazing.

The Wedding Planner

We were fortunate enough to have Marina Torien from Mongena Game Lodge to coordinate our day for us. She did an excellent job and the whole day ran smoothly.

Food & Cake

The delicious food was prepared by the staff at Mongena Game Lodge. Our wedding cake was made by a friend it was a layered cheese cake with crackers, bread, biltong and an assortment of condiments.

Wedding Stationery

Our invites and save the dates were electronic. All the other stationery was printed by Xquisite Design.

The Party and Entertainment

We did not take any professional dance lessons, we just winged it:-) We used Sonic State Productions as our DJ and we had an amazing evening and literally partied the night away!
