Married on Nov 22, 2014

22 November, what a lovely summers day, filled with love, excitement, and obviously some nerves. A day that will never be the same again in our diaries.

Blaauwpoort Venue and Lodge, the best venue ever, Madre (wedding coordinator) ran around and what a champ she is, she made everything run smoothly, we (girls and guys) were so relaxed and did not have to worry about anything.

A Bush venue is something I have always wanted, and the dream you have as a girl, to feel like a princess, is to say the least what I had, I truly felt like a queen, did not want the day to end at all.

I couldn’t wait to marry my best friend, my soul mate and now called my husband. He had all kinds of tricks up his sleeve on the day, had special messages printed on coasters on specific time slots, given to me by the photographer, and obviously was captured as I wiped tears away.

I had a rock-solid support, thank you to everyone!

My hairdresser Ian and makeup artist Marlilyn was phenomenal, not to mention Ian had to change my hair three times due to this princess being fussy (but hey a girl is only getting the chance to be married once, or what)

A big thank you to Pieter Basson from Photopoetry and Reinhard Bodenstein from RB Pro Productions who was running around like headless chickens from morning till late in the evening capturing the most unforgettable photos and video shots, every angle and corner was covered.

My cake was made by a very good friend, Jackie Scott, and it was a finger licking good cake and cupcakes, OMG.

Table décor was made by a dear and close friend from Dotty Trunk Designs, she did all the laser and wood work, what an angel, and support, just one phone call and she designs something for you until you are satisfied and her work is out of this world.

THANK YOU to everyone who made the day special before and on the day.

If I can say one thing: Being married is AWESOME.
