The Honeymoon


Unfortunately we had no honeymoon, but we are planning this year for the memorable time together.

My Special Day

This was the easy part, I only changed the colors 4 times.
Me and hubby decided on the farm theme, only because it is who we are, 'plaasmense'
My hair was red as my personality, fire red. This was a choice made along time ago.
Make-up was done by a very pretty lady from Kriel in Mpumalanga, Nadia.
My wedding dress was designed by your truly, something different and something pretty.
My choice on shoes was the easy part, Olive Green, though the jewelry was not that easy. It was so difficult to find something in the specific color that I wanted.

The Venue

We got married just outside Middelburg, Mpumalanga.
Hunters Dream and Entertainment
It was the perfect fit, only because we liked the farm theme and rustic feeling.
There we not much guests who stayed over, but the ones who did, enjoyed it all.

Wedding Elements

We all know that flowers are so expensive. This time I was clever. I asked a friend to make flowers out of old books, with colors on the top of each petal. And it wasn't that expensive, and I can still use some of it in our home.
Renting the decor was at a stage nerve wrecking, the lady gave the manager of the lodge, shocking pink, and I said it should be a dusty pink. But all in good favor, I went to rental house and they exchanged it.

My Groom And His Groomsmen

Hubby decided on something plain. They had white shirts, cream cheno's and brown shoes. And please don't forget the braces they had.

Beautiful Bridesmaids

This part wasn't easy. I have 3 sisters and they were all bridesmaids. They changed their dresses 3 times, and they already bought it all. But they decided on dresses, dusty pink.
Their jewelry was made by a dear friend of mine.

My Captured Moments

My sisters friend, gave us the opportunity not to pay for the photographer. It was his present to us.
Christo and Nadia Kruger, from Meyerton in Gauteng, drove all the way for our day. The imagines was of such good quality that there is no need to edit the photos.

The Wedding Planner

Who doesn't? Me and mommy did it all.

Food & Cake

This was the easy part as well. My mother decided to make all our food herself and some friends helped. The wedding cake was ''biltong en droëwors'' - and was made by a butchery in town close to my work.
