After being together for 9 years engaged for almost 3 we finally decided that it is time to get married & it was the perfect day, I truly married my best friend!
We wanted it to be a family affair, with all our close family & friends beside us it was bound to be the perfect day filled with so much love & joy with only 49 guests it was absolute bliss!
When we first started planning our wedding I only had one venue in my head & was one of the first we went to visit, the most spectacular & heavenly place Babylonstoren, after a few seconds on the farm we fell in love & decided then & there that we would look no further! With the Babylonstoren team behind me I didn't have to do much, just share my ideas with their wonderful creative team, they listen to your every word & your every need.
They did everything for us from the flowers to the most amazing cake with food straight from their garden & out of a magazine it was picture perfect & super delicious!!
Our photographer Yolande Marx was amazing as always with her keen eye to capture all the moments & tell our love story! She never disappoints & we are so grateful for her, she made sure that we had the memories to last for ever! The day goes by so quickly & to have these beautiful images & relive the moment is such a wonderful gift.
Even though Babylonstoren took care of most of the planning I had some DIY's to take care of, I created & made all my wedding stationary myself with the theme of Vintage Botanical with a bit of a modern twist. I wanted to keep the decor low key as it was not the most important thing for me on our wedding! I wanted it to be a family affair with good food, wine & music, good company & mostly for everyone to celebrate the love!
My dress was custom made by the wonderful Robyn Roberts, she is truly an artist with fabrics, she created a master piece & I felt so elegant! I decided not to go traditional & wear a veil & rather wore a flower piece that matched my amazing bouquet also created by the Babylonstoren team.
Our wedding day was a day I will never forget! We celebrated with loved ones & we savored each moment!
