Magical Moments

 

One highlight was when Dean Fuel played a set during our champagne and canapés- we had a full on dance party with all our friends before we went to have our couple photos taken! It was the best! Another memorable moment was when I said my last sentence of my vows to my husband in Hebrew, he was blown away!

The Honeymoon

 

Yes, we left the day after our wedding. We went to the magical Dream of Zanzibar Resort in Zanzibar, Tanzania.

My Special Day

My dress was from a boutique in Port Elizabeth call Olivelli, my dress was Maggie Sotterro. I wanted my hair to be soft and flowy, slightly boho style.
My shoes I found online, Madison - Rose gold chunky heels- they were so comfortable I kept them on all night!
I wore minimal Jewellery, literally a pair of earrings. My lingerie was from Victoria Secret.

The Venue

L’ermitage Chateaux and Villas, Franschhoek, Cape Town.
Most of our guests stayed at the venue and a few stayed in BnBs close by.

My Bridal Beauty Regime

Nothing fancy for me, as I was seeing a dermatologist - no facials were allowed for me. Drank lots of water and I did a juice cleanse for 3 days before the wedding. I started gym work outs about a year and a half before our wedding. Regular gym work outs and classes and healthy, mindful eating with occasional treats :)

Wedding Elements

Minimal flowers as Cape Town is currently in a drought. I opted for lots of greenery, shrubs and loads of candles. We had up lighters to create more of an ambience. We brought in our own long tables as our reception space was not very big and round tables take up more space. The seating was intimate and we had our own sweet heart table.

My Groom And His Groomsmen

The groom had a custom full suit made in Sandton, Johannesburg.
The groomsman, rented and bought their items from Euro Suit in Cape Town.
Dark grey for the groom and lighter grey for the groomsmen.

Beautiful Bridesmaids

I fell in love with the bridesmaids dresses on showmeyourmumu.com - loved the boho, flow of their dresses but they were quite pricey. We found a seamstress in Cape Town and she made them for us at the fraction of the price. The material she sourced in Turkey and each of my bridesmaids chose a different style to suit their shape.

Marriage Officer

Our celebrant was the amazing Tzili Reisenberger. She was fun, made all our guests feel they were part of our ceremony. Everyone commented on her style and loved it!

My Captured Moments

The wonderful Nikki van Dierman was our photographer and she had MagPie photography assisting.
Our videography was captured by Popped Red Balloon, a guy and girl duo we highly recommend! They were all so amazing and worked so well together

The Wedding Planner

I planned my entire wedding all on my own :)

Food & Cake

Our canapés, starters and mains were made on site at the Restaurant.
Our cake and micro cakes were done by the amazing, Sweet Lion Heart and we had a candy buffet which was organized through the decor Company

Wedding Stationery

I was lucky enough to win a voucher to work with Bree Designs.
Bree was amazing - she knew exactly what I wanted and I was so incredibly happy with all our stationary.
