Magical Moments


From the very first moment we laid eyes on each other at the ceremony to that moment we said "I Do", then getting showered with confetti as we left the chapel. It was an amazing feeling walking into our reception area as Mr & Mrs for the first time and then later sharing our magical first dance together. Being surrounded by family and friends who love us and are truly happy for us made it the most incredible unforgettable day.

The Honeymoon


We where given an adventure of a life time by my Sister (Maid Of Honor).
She planned everything from our flights to our accommodation and managed to keep it a surprise to the very end.
We went to Phuket Thailand and then a couple of nights stay in Dubai.

My Special Day

After being engaged for two years, the dress, my mind and just about everything else will change.
But everything started to fall into place once the date felt like it was finally approaching.
From a whimsical wedding dress to a classic up do, we tied it all together with inspiration from our Wedding look and feel.
We wanted to be creative yet elegant, whimsical yet traditional, fun yet stylish.

The Venue

We got married at Langkloof Roses in Wellington in the second week of Spring.
The roses were just starting to bloom and the farm was so inviting.
Our guests stayed in quaint farm cottages all around the venue and got to enjoy the lovely serenity that the farm had to offer.

Wedding Elements

We decided not to use fresh flowers and rather make our own paper ones.
We choose a soft cream paper stock that would compliment my Wedding dress and that tied in with the rose gold element of the theme to match my accessories and makeup.

We rented all our table decor from Blooming Wonderful who are based in Sommerset West.

The lighting was styled and created by Goeters who are based in Wellington.

My Groom And His Groomsmen

The Groom wore a tailored navy suit (Zara), white shirt, navy bowtie and brown shoes. The best man (and brother) wore a slightly darker navy suit (Woolworths), white shirt and brown shoes.
Both suits were complemented with a handmade paper flower buttonhole that we created.

Beautiful Bridesmaids

My Maid Of Honor wore a one of a kind custom dress from my bridal bouquet Calegra.
