Chantè Dobson

Married on Nov 4, 2017 in Gauteng


The first time I saw you, my heart whispered, “that’s the one”...I knew from that first moment we met, it was...not love at first sight exactly, but - familiarity. Like: oh, hello, it’s you. It’s going to be you, Game Over!

Here’s to love and laughter and happily ever after

Magical Moments


There was so many highlights that stood out, even the minor things that went wrong. In the end nothing matter, I married the love of my life, and our wedding was AMAZING!

As much planning as I put into the reception and ceremony this was by far the least favorite part. We wrote our own vows, and his was just breathtaking. And despite him being so sure he wasn't going to cry, seeing my groom shedding multiple tears on my way down the aisle to him was definitely a sight I will never forget.

The speeches and toasts, totally had me in tear... the Best Man`s speech he totally knocked it out the park... Maid of Honor (my sister) definitely that special sister bond... words can express.

All the wonderful people that shared this special milestone with us, dancing into the early hours of the morning and the list goes on...

I absolutely loved everything and every moment was memorable, I could really not imagine it be anything different!

The Honeymoon


Yes, little gem in South Africa, Umngazi River Bungalow and Spa in the Transkei...absolutely beautiful
