Magical Moments


When I walked down the isle and I saw my then husband to be's reaction... that was a priceless moment and I will never forget it.

The Honeymoon


Yes, we went to Uvongo in Durban

Wedding Gallery


My Special Day

The look that we went for was simple and rustic, we wanted the colors of nature. For my hair and makeup we went for a natural look, and my weeding dress was comfortable and gorgeous. My shoes was flats with lots of bling... my jewellery was very simplistic. For my lingerie.... lets just say my husband had a BIGGG smile on his face.

The Venue

We got married in Heidelberg (in Gauteng) at a venue called Stukkies & Stokkies. Most of our guests stayed over at Heidelberg Lodge. My husband and I stayed over in Heidelberg Kloof Lodge.

My Bridal Beauty Regime

My friend took me for spa treatments and gel on my toes the Thursday before my wedding. And I did my nails the Friday before my wedding.

Wedding Elements

We did our own decor and the rest we rented from Stukkies & Stokkies (our wedding venue). We went for a simplistic and rustic look. We decorated empty tins and glass holders with ribbon and hessian. And we mostly had candles, a few proteas and a small white flower.

My Groom And His Groomsmen

The groom wore a navy suite (that we bought at Fabiani's), happy socks and brown shoes. He also wore a white shirt and a white and navy tie, and a pink flower as decoration. The groomsmen wore jeans with white shirts, with each there own unique bow tie and suspenders.

Beautiful Bridesmaids

I had one brides maid and 2 brides men.
My brides maid wore a floral dress and my 2 brides men wore white shirts, beige pants and navy ties, with brown shoes and belt.

Marriage Officer

Mark Granard

My Captured Moments

We only had a photographer, his name is Anton Guyt. He was very professional and we love our photos. We got our photos a month after our wedding.

The Wedding Planner

My friend Chemeze Petersen was my wedding coordinator, if it wasn't for her ... then I don't know. She is the best.

Wedding Transport

My dad drove me to the wedding venue in his Audi A3

Food & Cake

The wedding venue was responsible for our food and our friend (Cecilia Greef) sponsored our wedding cake (it was gorgeous).

Wedding Stationery

We didn't use a lot of stationary, but my brother designed most of the stationary we used.

The Reception and Entertainment

We partied the night away, without any dance lessons. A friend of ours was the DJ.
