Magical Moments


The topical answer would that the whole day was special & memorable however there was a few special moments that made my day just a little more special.
One was when Dewald (My hubby) came and prayed for me, our marriage and our future. It was such a small deed but so meaningful. A beautiful, pure and precious moment, holding his hand and listening to him.
Second was when my dad saw me for the first time all dolled up, his face just lightened up the room and I could see how proud he was without him saying a word.
Third was the walk into the reception hall as a married lady, it was the first steps as a married couple and I enjoyed every moment.
Lastly was thanking all the guest during the course of the evening, It is very uplifting to know how many people really care and love you enough to see you make a life long promise.

The Honeymoon


We went on a "mini-moon" to Balitto.

My Special Day

My wedding look to other would be a normal bridal look, professional make up, curls, a white wedding gown.

To me it was the very best I could be.

From head to hem I stayed true to what suited me the best.

My hair was curled with a broach at the back. My make up was beautifully done, enough to make a statement but also natural. I had minimal jewellery as my dress was very beautiful and I did not want to take away from it. I had very stylish forever new shoes, a blush pink with a hint of gold heels. My focus point was my dress, I wore a stunning white lace and tulle mermaid Justin Alexander gown with added lace off shoulder straps.

To round off my Bridal look I added in a Royal Hem veil.

My Bridal Beauty Regime

I kept to my daily routine, normal products.
I did not change anything except my diet to loose a bit of weight. I followed the 28 day diet for 3 months and lost a great amount of weight.

Wedding Elements

My decor was flawless.

Caro from Deco Rent really outdone herself! I could not have asked for more, the flowers & decor were everything I imagined!
Our flowers were bouquets of roses, proteas & greenery. We had no set color so we used duck egg blue runners & serviettes. Brown steel underplates withe the sandard cutlery & glasses. All on a raw wood table.

We gave a white engraved enamel mugs with the guest name infront & a thank you message at the back.

To me it was perfect & I would not have wanted it any other way!

My Groom And His Groomsmen

Handsome does not justify what the Groom and the groomsmen looked like!

The groom was in a classic tailored navy suit with a white cufflink shirt,waistcoat and tie.
The groomsmen wore a tailored navy pants with a waistcoat.
All the men wore brown belts & shoes.

Markhams was our one stop attire shop!

Beautiful Bridesmaids

The bridesmaids were pretty in pink!

Hair and make up I left up to them, all of them however incorporate a braid in there hair do.

The bridesmaids wore a soft blush pink Forever New dress.

The outfit was only complete once they had there single protea bouquet in there hands.

The Reception and Entertainment

Kaalvoet sokkie...

Not only a Afrikaans song but a true reflection of our party! We danced the night away with lots of good chats, food & drinks! Need I say more?

Dewald & I did not take any dance lessons, we did not even practice, we just "winged" it. We opened the dance floor with Ellie Goulding - Still falling for you

My dad & I danced on Snotkop - Song vir my dad, halfway through the song we attempted to do the Gangnam Style! I cant help but smile because even though to some it was very funny to me it was very special!

Was great fun, I would do it again in a heartbeat.
