Magical Moments

 

The entire day was a memorable moment for me. I would cherish the sight of my groom shedding a tear when he layed eyes on me walking down the isle, forever.

We walked into the reception on "something just like this" by Cold Play with me over my grooms shoulder and his fist in the air, while everyone was cheering. That was also awesome !

Our first dance was just as memorable with the 100 sparklers lit during our first dance on "Perfect" by Ed Sheeran.

The Honeymoon

 

We went to explore our land, South Africa, travelling to our first destination in Mossel bay, Diaz Hotel & Resort. I was spoiled to bits with roses, champagne and a picnic basket filled with chocolate covered strawberries, cupcakes, cheese and crackers, displayed in the lounge area as I walked into the room.

We stayed on the 10th floor overlooking the beautiful oscean!

For the other half of our honeymoon, my husband booked a cottage in the woods close to Knysna and Plettenbergbay.

We had a lovely evening on the porch under fairylights next to our braai, drinking champagne yet again!

There we went out exploring all the tourist attractions; canopy tours through the forest, the Lion park, Walking with Elephants, Monkey Land and much more.

We had a lovely breakaway from reality being tourists in our own land.

My Special Day

I would describe my style as vintage, elegant and classic.

I was looking for a dress with lace sleeves and then I found myself inlove with this dress. Classic heart shape neck line with the most amazing lace. I couldn't resist.

I was set on finding very comfortable shoes , because I knew it was going to be a long day, I saw these beautiful white shoes with diamante on it, and thought of it to be very elegant and perfect to go with my dress.

My husband bought my jewelry for me as a gift, beautiful classic diamante earrings and bracelets adding to the vintage look. It was stunning.

Make up well described by my make up artist; dramatic eyes with soft lips. My husband loves it when I make my eye make-up dark and smokey, so that's what I did.

To complete the look my hair stylist did an gorgeous upstyle. Everything was perfect.

The Venue

Our ceremony was at the Church in Riebeeck Kasteel and our reception on Delsma Farm.

80% of our guests stayed over on Delsma Farm and enjoyed a breakfast at the venue the next morning.
