Married on Mar 7, 2015 in Gauteng

On the 7th March 2015, my husband, Dustin and I embarked on our journey of entering into a covenant with one another! I can quite comfortably say that our wedding day was magical (as all brides would say), but really it was.

Our special day took 18 months to plan, attending all Wedding Expo's and searching tirelessly for a venue. We eventually opted for the coast which was a bit tricky as I didn't want a beach wedding but rather a garden wedding and my husband was keen on the coast. After about 6 months of looking at venues we chose The Oyster Box in Umhlanga - and what a great decision that was. Other than the venue being a 6* Carnation Group Hotel we enjoyed the benefits of using their in-house wedding co-ordinator (Ginny Eslik) at no additional cost and undoubtedly made planning our special day seamless.

Everything was absolutely perfect on the day, from hair and make-up right down to the very last detail, I can truly say that nothing was out of place on the day and my brief to all our suppliers were followed to the (T).

We are 7 months down the line and marriage is truly the best decision I've ever made.
