Magical Moments


It is difficult to choose what the highlights is. But if i have to choose then it will be the moment when my mother helped me dress and when she placed the vail over my head. When my father gave me away to my husband, and when it was time to give each other the right hand. Another memorable moment was when we thought that a joke was played on us when they said that they forgot our rings that turned up be actually true luckily I was wearing my engagement ring.

The Honeymoon


Yes we dit. We went to Uvongo Beach in Natal. Our honeymoon was a gift from both our parents side.

Wedding Gallery


My Special Day

My wedding look is a very modern vintage look. I wanted long soft curls falling down my back and a braid on my left side. My makeup was a soft look to compliment my hair and suited my personality. My dress was a off white lace dress from Bride and Co with sequence on the top and the back. I had my purple belt made by a lady to contribute to my modern vintage look. My shoes is white silver gladiator heels. I will keep my lingerie a secret, as it was for my husbands' eyes only. My mother in law bought my wedding jewellery and accessories as a gift.

The Venue

We got married at Jozi's Venue in Mpumalanga Sundra. No, it was not a over night stay.

Wedding Stationery
