Magical Moments

 

Seeing my dad for the first time is a moment I will never ever forget. I don't know who cried more...him or me. The most special moment we have ever shared together.

And of course, seeing my husband (to be at the time) waiting for me at the end of the aisle is a feeling that cannot be described or ever relived. Just pure love and happiness. I can still picture his face when he first saw me, and how he couldn't contain his emotions. It was beautiful.

The Honeymoon

 

Yes, we went to the absolutely gorgeous Zanzibar.

My Special Day

The wedding was classy rustic and minimalistic so I had to make sure that my outfit and look matched our vision.
My dress was a simple fitted A line, with an embellished belt. I was fortunate enough to wear my mothers veil from her wedding that she has kept all these years for me. It was the perfect match. My shoes were nude with a rose gold and silver sparkly heel. I wore no jewelry and (cough cough) no lingerie as my dress did not allow it. I wore a simple silver leaf shaped hair accessory. My hair was pulled into a neat low bun and my makeup was done with various shades of bronze. Everything tied together perfectly.

The Venue

We got married at Oakfield farm, in The Dairy.
The guests stayed at their own accommodation.

Oakfield Farm – Wedding & Function Venue

Oakfield Farm – Wedding & Function Venue

This acclaimed, multi award winning venue is where romance, beauty, old fashioned hospitality and excellence come together a mere 30 minutes from Sandton and Centurion.

My Bridal Beauty Regime

I tried my hardest to gym as much as I could before the wedding, but it didn't always work out in my favor. To unwind we went for a few massages prior to the wedding but I avoided facials....just in case.
To make sure I had a beautiful glow on the day, I went for a spray tan with Wendy from Atta Girl Spray Tan. She is awesome and always makes me look like I just stepped off the beach with a golden tan.

Wedding Elements

The decor was classy rustic and minimalistic. There was simple greenery on the tables with baby's breathe in between. We had clear Tiffany chairs around white wooden tables. There was a tent outside in the garden area with a few cocktail tables and chairs. We had beautiful soft lighting in the garden and the reception venue. We also had a performer (Will Rayz) playing for the guests in the garden while we were having photos taken.

My Groom And His Groomsmen

The groom and groomsmen wore light chino pants with brown leather suspenders, crisp white shirt and a polka-dot navy blue bow tie. The groomsmen did not wear blazers however the groom wore a baby blue blazer. The outfits were bought from various stores such as Fabiani, Woolworths, Markhams and Major John.

Beautiful Bridesmaids

I dressed my bridesmaid in what I would want to wear as a bridesmaid, something young and trendy.

They wore high waisted pink netted skirts with a white crop top and rose gold choker.

Marriage Officer

We did a pre-marriage counselling course with our pastor, Pastor Jac, and he married us on the day. It was very special having someone who knows us personally.

My Captured Moments

Kyle from Bravo Photography was our photographer. He is absolutely amazing and would highly recommend him!

The Wedding Planner

Tanita from Monster Productions assisted us with the planning.

Food & Cake

Oakfield provided the delicious buffet.

My dear friend Janine made our top tier cake and the rest were doughnuts from good old pick n pay:)

The Reception and Entertainment

No dance lessons needed, just pure talent. Only kidding, I was super worried as Don and I never practiced our dance until it was time to take to the dance floor. Everything went smoothly, especially knowing neither of us were counting out steps.

Monster productions did our lighting and sound.

Will Rayz was our live performer during the day, keeping the guest entertained while we did photo's.
DJ Nigel was our DJ and made sure every single person has an absolute jol!
