Actually saying the vows. You hear them a million times at other weddings, but something never quite sinks in about just how serious a commitment it is, or how exciting it is to say them and make that promise to the person you care for so much. I can only compare the feeling of hearing and reciting the vows to the feeling of your stomach flipping as you go upside down on a roller coaster.
That first kiss as a married couple, the confetti, photo session and of course the first dance...
He surprised me, as I heard the night of the wedding we will be heading to Bali that Monday morning 5.00am. We stayed a total of 14 days including travel and flights. We visited Ubud, Kuta and Gili islands. AMAZING PLACE.
Floral and messy was my idea, but still soft and elegant. Hair was in a messy low bun and had a few curls down my sides and back. Make up was soft and natural with a brown/gold eye. As my wedding dress was tight fitted, more mermaid style, I decided not to do to much with jewellery because my dress had a low back and want all the detail to be to the T. I had earring that was rose gold, which matches with my rings. Lingerie, no bra because my dress was backless and lingerie was white and lace. Shoes was light soft pink, that tight up my legs.
We got married in Stellenbosch, Forest 44 on the R44 route. All our friends and family were from nearby, Uber made sure everyone was safe.
I stayed with my usual routine, eating habits changed because I was stressed out. I had a facial every month until the wedding week. My mother and maid of honor surprised me with a spa day a week before the wedding.
My colors was Burgundy, sage, soft pink/dusy pink, gold and white. Ceremony was all white with flowers. Pre-drinks was all white furniture and we had Chris Rain performing for the guest while we had our photo session. Inside was a candy table, tables was decorated with gold, flowers and a lot of candles.
The groom got his suit from Carducci, shoes from Woolworth and all other accessories from Carducci. The groomsmen had grey trousers on with their own white button shirt. They got their ties from Bro Ties.
