I wanted to go for the plain\casual look. My wedding dress was long and beautiful with embroidery detail and a low cut at the back .My hair was teased in a bubble at the top and the bottom was loose and curled. The make up was not too dark and not too light.
We got married at church in Somerset West and our reception was at a guest house in Somerset West with the most amazing view of the lower Somerset West and the beach.
I had the most amazing spa day at Mukda Thai Spa in Gordon's Bay , which included a mint scrub and a oil massage which then was topped with a mini Mani and pedi and lastly a wonderful lunch.
We've decided to go for pastel colours with a rusty look. We had white table cloths with long pieces of Hessian in the middle and circular cut wooden logs with hand decorated jars with candles in them on top. We had a stretch tent, which the guest house sponsored, over the patio area that kept most of the heat and sun out , but not ruining the stunning scene.
My husband wore a black suit 3\4 pants with a short sleeve bottom top, black waist coat and lastly a bow tie. His best man wore a full suit which was rented at Suit Hire .
I only had one Bride's Maid , but she wore a mint green infinity dress from Glitter & Glam Creations.
Luckily for us we have a friend which does photography and he took the photos for us .
I was transported with my father and my Maid of Honour to church in a new Renault . The best surprise was when we walked out the church to a 1933 Chev in mint condition which transported us to where we took our photos.
We hired a guy to do a "Groom's Choice " spit braai for our wedding and I must add that the food was absolutely amazing .
Thanks to a wonderful sister in law which designed and printed the stationery for the wine and champagne bottles.
We had a DJ for the night.
