Candice de Villiers

Married on Apr 3, 2016

Our beautiful wedding took place on the first Sunday in April fondly remembered as "Sunday-Fun-Day" at Brenaissance, the exquisite wine estate in the Stellenbosch Winelands.

Besides waking up with chicken pox on the morning of my wedding day, the rest of the day continued without a glitch! What started off as a bride's worst nightmare, turned out to be better than a dream!

My make-up artist Cecilia Fourie did an amazing job covering up my emerging blemishes making me feel beautiful and excited for the moment when i got to marry my best friend who was my first kiss and now thanks to God's grace and perfect timing, he is also going to be my last kiss.

Although i was unlucky to have woken up with chicken pox i truly felt like the luckiest lady - or more appropriately, I felt like a Princess.

After a week of rain, the sun came out to shine on our special day making me feel extra radiant as I floated down the aisle in my beautifully beaded Princess ball gown by Euro Bride to my Prince, who was looking at me with loving eyes full of tears.

After we said our "I Do's" our close friends and family who joined us on this memorable day got to enjoy themselves outside on the beautiful lawns while Food Fanatics did an incredible job serving our guests champagne and delicious canapes until the bridal photos were complete.

My husband and I felt completely relaxed with our dedicated photographer Michelle du Toit who comes highly recommended, as do the videographers from Pie in the Sky.

Our magical day ended in more celebrations with our MC and dear friend (Magic Nick) doing a few magic tricks for us and then dancing until midnight to the fantastic music of Nico Bruyns who was so accommodating and kept our guests on their feet!

I could find no fault in the day or in any of our suppliers. The flowers and hall decor by Royal Blu Events and Function Hiring 4U took my breath away. It was elegant and oh so soft and romantic with the up lights, glass chandeliers and candelabras in the reception hall. It was an unforgettable day celebrating love between two people....a day that will always be remembered as the beginning of forever with my other half.
