Magical Moments

 

There were so many memorable moments on our wedding day! Waking up to a sunny, warm day in Stellenbosch thinking today i am marrying the man of my dreams; seeing my dad waiting for me and sharing happy tears, our first dance, laughter with friends and family and the highlight ofcourse saying I DO to my husband!

The Honeymoon

 

Our honeymoon was an absolute dream come true! It has always been our dream to go to an idyllic island somewhere in the Indian Ocean. We were so blessed to be able to go the the exclusive Maldives where we stayed at the Sun Island Resort & Spa for 7 nights!! We had the time of our lives!

My Special Day

My wedding look was the ultimate fairy tale! I wore a ballgown styled dress by Eurobride with the name Royalty. My hair was done in loose curls to the side, by Anzel from House of Hair Stellenbosch. My amazing make-up was done by Marni Bezuidenhout; complimenting my husbands most favourite feature- my eyes! I wore shoes from Shoerama, jewellery from Forever New and Lingerie from Woolworths.

The Venue

Our venue was at the beautiful 401 Rozendal in Stellenbosch. Our guests stayed on the wine farm at the Rozendal cottage and also at Skilpadvlei

My Bridal Beauty Regime

A healthy body is a healthy mind and so in the months leading up to the wedding i enjoyed going to the gym as well as partaking in modern dance classes. My favourite skincare range is Nimue and my ultimate go to the the enzyme exfoliator. Naturally being an Oral Hygienist, my colleague Dr Nicolaas at Dr Chris Pistorius in Stellenbosch whitened my teeth with Zoom professional teeth whitening.

Wedding Elements

The theme if our wedding was classic meets rustic due to the fact that our decor was very modern and elegant and the venue elements more rustic. Decor was supplied by Grand Style Hiring and Function Hiring 4 U. The table settings, decor, fairy lights and flowers on the table and up in the chapel were done by Sitting Pretty. The beautiful flower arrangements hanging from the ceiling was done by my mother-in-law Monica, such a blessing having her in my life. The furniture for the pre-drinks was handmade and a joint effort by my husband and i and my in-laws. The photo Canvases were done by Audiolens tygervalley and gifted to us by my parents. The music and lighting was done by Ingrid Wolff from Dj Dean SA. On the day before the wedding my father in law organized the beautiful tent on the veranda as a suprise from Cape Tents.

My Groom And His Groomsmen

The groom and groomsmen were dressed in suites from Mr Suit in Bellville. The Grooms shoes are Arthur Jack by Cape Union Mart.

Beautiful Bridesmaids

My beauitful maid of honour and bridesmaids were dressed in blush pink and silver sequence. The dresses were made by Nuri, a talented lady from Grassy park. Jewellery by Lesdene Jewellers.

Marriage Officer

Our marriage officer was Andred Hayward from I Do Weddings.

My Captured Moments

We chose not to have a videographer in our wedding, so we knew we needed to find THE BEST photographer. Riekert Cloete from Riekert Cloete Photography captured every special moment and highlight of our wedding day! He has a great personality and made me feel very relaxed throughout the day!

The Wedding Planner

We did not have a wedding planner, but Elandi who is the venue manager at 401 Rozendal was our co-ordinator on the day. She really did such an amzjng job!

Wedding Transport

A very good family friend picked me up and transported me to the chapel in his brand new Mercedez GLC.

Food & Cake

The catering on our wedding day was done by the very talented Janneman from Awesome weddings! He prepared our gourmet canapes, starters, mains and dessert. How he prepared 95 plated lamb shanks is amazing and tasted absolutely delicious! The wedding cake was made by me, i spent an entire day perfecting our cake with help from my mom!

Wedding Stationery

Our wedding stationary was done DIY with some help from a friend finishing her degree in graphic design at Inscape. My bridemaids and two moms helped stick, glue and fold.

The Reception and Entertainment

The dance floor was not too big, which provided an intimate space to socialise with all our guests. Sitting Pretty provided the draped fairy lights over the dance floor. Ingrid from Dj Dean SA made sure the dance floor kept going all night. Rudy and i used to do ballroom dancing together, so we still remember a few moves; but as for our first dance, to accommodate my dress, we kept it slow and steady!
