Magical Moments


Walking down the aisle was like nothing else I have ever experienced. There was an incredible amount of emotion.

My father in law could not stop crying tears of joy during his speech. Its a moment still held so close to my heart.

When Ric was searching for my garter, little did he know I'd hid it in my bra. He was searching for a while and all our guests had a good laugh when he was still down there and I pulled it out and show'd them all he was searching in vain.

The Honeymoon


We loved our all inclusive package in Zanzibar

My Special Day

I found it difficult to find a wedding look as such, there are so many great trends these days. I remember remarking to my Mom that I wish I could get married ten times (to the same guy) to do all of the looks! In the end I decided to go simple, timeless with a touch of me. I chose a classic A-line, borrowed my moms pearl earrings and wore my hair in loose curls. BUT, my dress had a beautiful lace back with intricate beading that felt completely me!

The Venue

Our Venue was Rosemary Hill in Pretoria. The staff there really work incredibly hard to give you the perfect day. The rose maze was the most beautiful place to share our vows, and the reception was held in their barn. Our bridal party and family stayed at the farm for the night. The rooms were recently completely revamped and are stunning.

My Bridal Beauty Regime

I combined a protein rich diet with some weight lifting leading up to the wedding. My routine consisted mostly of jumping rope, deadlifts into military presses, flys,leg presses, pushups and squats, squats and more squats.

I kicked up my skin care routine and wore a face mask almost every night.

Wedding Elements

The theme for our wedding was Warmth. We wanted everyone to feel at home and relaxed. As such, the decor was not too structured and revolved around having a lot of warm light included; it was more about the lighting than the flowers. There were candles absolutely everywhere in the reception hall. We used terrariums on the tables because of special significance in the family. In fact, the one on our main table was made by my new in laws.We didn't worry about the flowers for the ceremony, the maze was so beautiful it did not need anything else.

Beautiful Bridesmaids

My bridesmaids wore dresses from Hoiden bridesmaids. They have an awesome catalog and make dresses to size, which was very important for me as all of my bridesmaids have very different body types and two of them live overseas!.
I chose the colour and told the girls that I want long dresses. They chose their own design. I think this was best as each girl new what they would feel most beautiful in and I think it worked out perfectly.

Wedding Stationery

I designed and printed all of our stationary myself. It took forever but I think we saved a lot of money doing this.
