My Special Day

My wedding look was more modern than.vintage. My hair was a more vintage type of style, my make up was perfectly done by my sister.whom is a beautician. My wedding dress was bought from a small boutique in Graaff-Reinet, I loved this dress from the start it was the first one a tried on after that I tried on many dresses and eventually I decided to buy that specific one because I looked good and felt amazing in it! My shoes was a gift from my mother it fitted perfectly with my dress and jewelry. My jewellery were a gift from my husband, a pearl set with a silver infinity pendant and infinity styled earings. Everything fitted perfectly together!

The Venue

Wedding Elements
