Magical Moments

 

From the moment i opened my eyes on the morning of 9 December 2017 thinking this is it ,the day i have been dreaming of since i was little, every moment was something else and just magical that day. The most special moment was walking down the isle with my dad , seeing my husband for the first time and taking his hand after not seeing each other for 7 days before the big day, just to make it more exciting and special. A wedding prayer for marriage from my dad , together with the family is a moment i will never forget.

The Honeymoon

 

I was spoilt with a honeymoon in Brazil (Buzios islands & Rio de Janeiro)

My Special Day

Elegant
Hair : Chignon Bun (up-do) i have never done a up-style before.
Make up : Smokey/drama eye make up with a soft lip color , because i dont like the typical bridal make up look.
Wedding Dress : Mermaid wedding dress with beaded lace and diamanté detail on the bodice of the dress.
Shoes : A nude imaani Ashanti bridal heel , i love the fact that i can wear this shoe again afterwards for date nights.
Jewelry : Im not very big on jewelry so i just wanted something soft to go with my dress and also something not to much. Silver oval crystal drop earrings and a touch of sparkle silver bracelet
