Magical Moments


The moment my dad saw me in my wedding dress was a memorable moment. His face was worth it. Walking down the isle to my future husband I wanted to start running! Finally, we are getting hitched! Spending the evening with everybody we know was the best. To us, our friends are family too. It was like a big family get together and great to see everyone again.

The Honeymoon


We only had 3 days to spare! We went to the President Hotel in Seapoint and did the tourist thing. It was fantastic and a must for everyone.

The Venue

We had our service and reception at Laatson Porterville. They have cottages and the family stayed for the weekend. They also have a guest house in the village called Twintrees. It was beautiful.

Wedding Elements

I was lucky to have my sister-in-law to do the entire reception area. She did the decor and the flowers. Thanks Irene!

Beautiful Bridesmaids

My bridesmaids wore dresses made by Jacoba Clothing Cape Town. They were so friendly!

My Captured Moments

I used Lizette Frank from White Studio Photography. She is amazing and we felt so relaxed with her! She also inspired us to use a photo booth and our guests loved it!

Food & Cake

Food was prepared by Laatson Onthale and the 3 tier red velvet cake was made by a family friend Jana Mynhardt.

The Reception and Entertainment

We used DJ Dirkie Gildenhuys and he had the people on their feet the entire night!
