Wedding Gallery


My Special Day

My dress was made by a wellknown designer Michelle Pace as well as my moms dress and bridesmaids dresses. I went for a very elegant look with an upstyle and glam make up. My wedding colour was blue so I wore blue heels on the day. My jewellery I wore for my wedding was a pearl set my husband bought me on our 2 year anniversary of dating.

The Venue

We got married in Midlands at The Orchards Wedding Venue and my bridal party stayed with us in the bridal home on the premises. Most of our guest stayed till the end and was so much fun. My close family stayed in the guest house next to the venue as it is the same owner. Friends stayed in the area not to far away.

My Bridal Beauty Regime

Well all brides to be stress out before the wedding so I just ate alot of fruit during the day and drank smoothies to keep me full. I used teeth whitening toothpaste twice a day to have a beautiful smile. I already had a daily facial treatment so just kept at that to keep my skin from breaking out

Wedding Elements

Wedding colours was navy blue and gold and looked amazing. Wooden tables with golden runners and also thinner navy blue runners. 3 different sized candles holders in the centre of the table with my 2 flower arrangements on either side. I decorated the entire roof with fairylights hanging down and some againts the wall. We did all of this ourselves. I have a sweet bar and juice bar for my guest.

My Groom And His Groomsmen

The men wore Cobalt Blue suits with a wastecoat with brown shoes and their ties were shades of blue and a white shirt. Their shocks were multicoloured just to bring some fun into it. We hired their suits from Suit Yourself.

Beautiful Bridesmaids

I gave them options of designs of dresses and they all picked the same one which made it very easy. Their dresses was made by the same designer that made my wedding dress. Their dressed was also a Cobalt Blue. Their shoes was golden glitter shoes that complimented their dresses.

Marriage Officer

We got married on the Tuesday in our Church by my pastor.

My Captured Moments

We had 2 photographers for the day from Tanya Strauss Photography. I can not be more happy with them as they really made us feel so relaxed and we all laughed so much. Always went out their way to get the perfect shot. My photos brought tears to my eyes and I was so happy. I would always recommend her and only use her for my photos. She is amazing and I cant thank Tanya enough for bringing my wedding to life in my photos. We did have a photobooth and I did that myself.

The Wedding Planner

No planner was needed because I had my mom and my maid of honour that helped in such a big way. Without them my wedding would not have been as stunning as it was.

Wedding Transport

Stayed at the venue which was amazing

Me; my mom and maid of honour did everything.

The Reception and Entertainment
