Magical Moments


I loved every moment of our wedding day, from the morning getting ready with my girls and the moms, to when the doors opened and I saw my Hubby standing waiting for me and to celebrating with each and every person at the reception, it truly was such a special day. Every girl deserves to have their dream wedding

The Honeymoon


We left for honeymoon the Monday after our wedding we went to Thailand

My Special Day

The minute I put my wedding dress on I felt like a princess. I loved that it was tight fitting and a sweetheart cut but lower down was a fairy dress. My shoes I wore Zellie peep toe wedges, pretty and comfortable. My earrings were borrowed from my bridesmaid and my hair and makeup was done by Lara’s beauty spot and she did an amazing job.

The Venue

Gecko Ridge Wedding Venue in Pretoria

Wedding Elements

With our Decor we opted for less is more we chose simple colours just grey and pink. Our flowers on the table were baby’s breath with pink carnations to give a bit of colour.

My Groom And His Groomsmen

As we had a summer wedding the groomsmen wore a classic grey suit but we left the jackets at home and they just wore waist coats. Garreth the groom wore a blue suit with brown shoes and belt as he was the main attraction he wore a full suit with a jacket.

Beautiful Bridesmaids

My bridesmaids wore light pink dresses we bought them from YDE and they looked absolutely stunning.

Who was your marriage officer?

Pastor Marius Potgieter. We did an interfaith ceremony and he did an amazing job by incorporating both the Christian and Jewish faith.

My Captured Moments

We used Maryke Oberholzer Photography to capture our special day. She gave us a sneak peak just before we left for honeymoon and the photos were absolutely amazing couldn’t have asked for a better photographer. We decided to have a customized photo frame with props where all our guests could take selfies while we were taking photos it worked amazingly. Vlakvark productions was our videographer.

Food & Cake

The food was prepared by Gecko Ridge Wedding Venue I have had so many compliments about how amazing the food was. Our cake was made by one of my clients and it was extremely tasty and looked stunning.

Wedding Stationery

Papermoon. Best in the wedding industry.
