Magical Moments

 

My day was magical.
My fiance and I were anything but traditional.
We went to the Vineyard Hotel together the the morning to have our couples massages. He played soft music whilst we drove and tears streamed down my face as i knew i about to live my dream in the following hours.

The highlight was after the massages we sat in the lush gardens of the Vineyard Hotel sipping champagne and telling each other how nervous we are for the next 4 hours.

We parted ways but only for a a short while, whilst we prepared for the life changing walk down the aisle.

The Honeymoon

 

Yes, we went on the MSC cruise to Mozambique Maputo, Pomene Island and Portguese Islands

we spent two days in Durban we we truly experienced local party life, followed by an adventurous day at Ushaka Marine world we we behaved like naughty teenagers

My Special Day

I wanted to be a classic elegant bride. My hair and makeup was romantic and natural, after all he should wake up next to the same beauty and not a smudged painting.
My dress was all lace, naked back, hour glass hugging on my wide hips.
minimal accessories, the dress spoke volumes, just a subtle drop diamante ear ring to highlight the sparkle of the belt.

Shoes were nude heels alternated with comfy white pumps.
Lingerie, lets just say we kept it lace :)

The Venue
