My Special Day

I had an amasing talented dressmaker at Mzanzi brides and had two dresses for my big day. The mermaide shape attire was for the matrimonial at Lake de la vie, a beautiful venue and church. A 4km drive in nature, where you see all the beautiful animals, it looks picture perfect, until you get the lake and beautiful old fashion church at the top. The reception was at Running waters, where guest were welcomed with wine and canape's on arrival.
