The highlight of the day was being introduced as Mr. and Mrs. Page in front of our closet friends and family. It was so special to have so many loved ones in one place, even for a night.
We are saving up to honeymoon in Norway next year sometime.
I wanted my look to be classic but with a touch of modern sophistication. My hair and makeup was more natural to reflect my personality. I really wanted to feel like myself, but my best self!
We got married at the stunning Holden Manz Wine Estate in Franschhoek. Our family stayed on the wine farm in their stunning 5 star cottages, while the rest of our guests stayed in surrounding estates.
About 3 months before the wedding I did Kayla Istine workout 3-4 days a week. I never had to be a certain size or lose a certain number, I just wanted to feel good.
I wanted my the theme of my flowers to be garden whimsical with touches of gold throughout. The venue didn't need much decor it was so stunning all on its own.
The groom and groomsmen got their suits from Woolworths on sale during winter, they were a steal!
The bridemaids dresses were a custom design by Valencia Harrison in hues of dusty rose with an ombre effect. They were simply and elegant design, with light fabric for a summer wedding. They were just gorgeous!
We had the most amazing photographer and videographer any bride and groom could ask for! They both captured our wedding in the best way, and were amazing to work with. The photographer was Karina Conradie from Paarl and FJS Productions from Cape Town.
I took on all the wedding planning myself, I really enjoyed the entire process from start to finish. We did have an amazing day coordinator that came with the venue at Holden Manz.
The kitchen at Holden Manz prepared the canapes and main entrees. Our beautiful cake was made by a dear friend, it was a delicious carrot cake.
Our first dance was to Etta James " At Last" , it was romantic and timeless. We had an amazing DJ,Mike, that had us dancing the night away!
