Magical Moments


We were lucky enough to have our 93 year old grandparents at the wedding, which was something we will treasure forever.
Our wedding was perfectly complete with all our friends and family who had travelled significant distances to be with us.

The Honeymoon


We did not go on Honeymoon as my husband had exams coming up and we decided to arrange a Honeymoon for the end of 2018.

Wedding Gallery


My Special Day

I had a classic vintage wedding look. I had my hair in a sidebun and a plait across leading up to the bun. My dress was a Maggie Soterro gown with Swarovski crystals on. My shoes were from Anella Wedding Shoes and had magnificent crystal and satin combinations. My make up artist used MUD products only.

The Venue

Leopards & Lace in Bloemfontein, Free State. Guests stayed comfortably in air conditioned rooms with huge lovely gardens and trees around.

My Bridal Beauty Regime

Just keeping exercise and eating habits in check and ensuring sufficient intake of vitamins.

Wedding Elements

I had a minimalistic look in the venue with glass, mirrors and crystal and a silver and white backdrop.

My Groom And His Groomsmen

The Groom and groomsmen were all clothed in suits bought from Eurosuit.

Beautiful Bridesmaids

There were no bridesmaids, only Men of Honour for the bride and Groomsmen for the Groom.
