Married on Apr 30, 2016

Every girl dreams about her big day, but wow! Our wedding day was even better than anything I could have dreamed of.

Jan-Albert and I got engaged at Allesverloren Wine Estate in the Riebeek Valley. He led me to the chapel area in the woods where he asked the big question. It was so special that we decided to get married there too. We share so many memories of this spot which we will treasure in our hearts forever.


Planning our wedding was so exciting. I was quite relaxed and loved every moment. I had so much support from my mothers-in-law, sisters, family, friends and our service providers.


When I woke up on the wedding day, the first thing that came to mind was: This is the day I’m getting married to my prince charming! It’s happening! We stayed at the lovely Shiraz Estate for the weekend and their breakfast was amazing. I was very relaxed on the day and everything went according to plan.

My father walked me down the aisle and when I saw Jan-Albert, we both smiled with tears in our eyes. He looked so handsome and happy.


We had a beautiful ceremony and wedding reception.

Mint & Magnolia worked magic with the décor and flowers  – everything looked stunning.

Jan Theron has a passion for photography and it truly shows in his work.

Elizabeth Stockenstrom is the queen of vintage lace wedding gowns. In fact, I love all her gowns!

Ellma Hair and Makeup at Backlash is so professional. I love her style and technique.

And everything about the venue, Allesverloren, was absolutely fantastic and so romantic.


Our wedding day was the best beginning of our lives together as Mr and Mrs Vorster.

True love never gives up. God is love and love is the key to happiness.
