Magical Moments


My husband and I had a pact not to see each other from the Wednesday prior to the wedding, so seeing him for the first time had my heart racing! Everything was perfect on that day, like a fairytale.

The Honeymoon


Yes, we spent an amazing week in Zanzibar :-)

The Venue

We got married at Ukuphupha in Port Elizabeth!

My Bridal Beauty Regime

Myself and my bridesmaids did a few sunbed sessions after the pale winter months, exercise etc was very difficult being the busiest time of the year at our businesses.

Wedding Elements

My theme was white, silver and light pink. Flowers were supplied by Flowers PE and then put together by Buks Hayman.

My Groom And His Groomsmen

The groom wore a black tux with pink waistcoat and tie.
The bestman work a black tux with silver waistcoat and tie.

They all had socks either saying groom or bestmen, as well as our dads "father of the bride" "father of the groom"

Beautiful Bridesmaids

The bridesmaids dresses were bought at Truworths, and we all three wore the same shoes from Kingsmead shoes.

The Reception and Entertainment

My ex boss of 14 years was my live band as a wedding gift - our song was "Love me like you do" by Ellie Goulding which was amazing when they sang it live!
