Our Wedding

What a day it was!

The day was perfect and went exactly as planned. I was so relaxed and enjoyed every moment.

Our bridal party looked so stunning, the colours went together so well.

The atmosphere was amazing from beginning to end. Everybody had a good time and enjoyed what the day brought. It was everything we could of asked for and more.

Magical Moments


It was such a magical day, went exactly as planned.

Fun was had from the morning getting ready to the last moments around the Boma.

Zaid and his best man Byron cried as I walked down the aisle.

It was the fairytale I always imagined.

The Honeymoon


Yes we did, Zaid had been planning the honeymoon for 9 months and kept it all a secret. We left for the airport the day after our wedding and once we arrived at the check in desk I saw we were going to Mauritius

My Special Day

The Venue

We got married at Cradle Valley Guesthouse in Muldersdrift

Our guests stayed over, all the rooms were booked and we had breakfast with them the next morning.

My Bridal Beauty Regime

The month before the wedding I did a consultation with Dermalogica. I started a 4 step process to help with the flaky dry skin

I also started training with my colleagues twice a week with a personal trainer - body toning.

Wedding Elements

The venue is beautiful in itself and doesn’t need much. It fit my vision perfectly.

The chapel - inside outside chapel meaning it had a roof but no windows and high walls. You could see the mountain and stunning views from the chapel. We had mason jars on the pews with rope, dusty blue ribbon and gip posey.

The venue - beautiful green surroundings, plants, river just magnificent.

The reception - plain with bamboo roof and crystal lightening. Wooden tables and chairs. A beautiful fountain, bar area and fairy lightening.

Decor & flowers - I did very little, wooden stamp on each table with a square glass bowl of flowers and candles around it.
I had a menu in a frame. Each person’s name card was on a cork and a jar of sweets as the favour.
The name cards, menu and jar ribbons brought in the blue accents of our colour scheme.

Cradle Valley did all the flower arrangements. Hydrangeas, Versilia Avalanche roses, gip posey, lisianthus and white stocks

Blast entertainment did the white and blue lightening around the room

My Groom And His Groomsmen

The Groom - light grey 3pc suit, white shirt, royal blue tie and hanky, brown shoes and belt. Earnings, Greek ring and fossil watch. David Beckham cologne

The Groomsmen - light grey 3pc suits, white shirts, dusty blue ties and hankies, brown shoes and belts

The suits are from Woolworths

Beautiful Bridesmaids

The bridesmaids wore dusty blue infinity dresses each wrapped differently.
