Married on Mar 7, 2015

After 6 years of long distance for studies we finally said our I Do's on 7 March 2015. We were honoured to have our family and friends from near and far share this special day with us. It was an amazing experience thanks to all the service providers and my amazing bridal party and family. My make-up and hair was done in the Bridal suite at the Plantation where we were provided with a light and delicious lunch. I was dressed by Janine from Lady Marmalaide... they are just amazing in every way. As a gift from my bridesmaid, she put a pendant with a photo of my Mom on her wedding day in my bouquet making sure she would be with me on my big day and making it so much more special. Before I knew it my horse and carriage was waiting outside ready to take me to my Prince charming. As I walked down the aisle, my heartbeat raising... until I looked up at my life partner, who wipes a tear away from his cheek, knowing that this moment, will be cherished for ever and ever, and our love will be an everlasting love. We had the pleasure of having Ronaldo Harding (Photographer) capture every moment and his pictures says a thousand words. Kirsty from Pelicula Productions was there to make a video of our special day but it felt as if she was part of the Bridal party. She created such a fun atmosphere and even assisted with the set-up. The evening was such a wonderful experience and the food was amazing. Our first dance was to Thinking out loud by Ed Sheeran. Lynley from Floral Creations created the vintage look I wanted, the Plantation Team made it such a stress free experience and I had the pleasure of having two amazing make-up artist's. It was a fairytale wedding and I was able to enjoy every moment with my family and friends. We even had a starlight ending and crazy moments in the photobooth. What more could a girl ask for.
