Magical Moments


The most memorable part of our wedding day was the moment the church doors opened and I saw my gorgeous husband standing at the end of the aisle with the biggest smile on his face.
The feeling was indescribable and I could easily say it was the most breathtaking moment of my life.

The Honeymoon


We went to the beautiful Camps Bay in Cape Town for a week and then to The Palace at Sun City for 4 days.
It was an incredible experience and would love to do it all over again.

Wedding Elements

Our main table had a bulk flower head floating above, which was the center attraction!

The theme was rose gold and blush.
The center pieces were rose gold candelabras wrapped with green ivy and blush pink roses.
This was accompanied by candles with floating roses.

The venue looked outstanding and was so simple!

The groom wore a classic Carducci tuxedo and his groomsmen wore black Carducci suits.
Very classical and modern!
