Bonita de Souza

Married on Mar 18, 2017 in Gauteng

Boy meets girl. They fall in love. 7 years later, he asks, she said yes! And they lived happily ever after...

12.07.2008 The Story Begins...
21.08.2015 He Popped the Question!
18.03.2017 NB Wedding Day!

Our love story began almost 9 years ago and what a journey it has been. But that's a story for another day. Our wedding day was definitely my favorite day of our journey. What more could a girl ask for, a beautiful dress, her best friends by her side, the man of her dreams waiting for her at the altar and all the love and support from her family and friends. It truly was a day of magic!

The early morning started at Q on First guest house where the bridal party was to get ready. Our hairstylist Sharon and our makeup artist Monique were such a pleasure to have with us, with champagne flowing and Ed Sheran singing in the background it was a beautiful start to a magical day. When it came time for us to all start getting dressed, the excitement grew and I couldn't wait to show my girls my wedding dress. What a show piece Zita Contente Couture created for me, my dress was utter perfection! And my bridesmaids, going from what looked like a behind the scenes Victoria Secret fashion show in their silver silk gowns to slipping into beaded masterpieces, they looked absolutely drop dead gorgeous! My mom and flower girls were also dressed so beautifully! Our flowers from Fantasy Flowers finished off our wedding looks perfectly and we were finally ready to head for the church.

Next stop was Rosebank Catholic church for the most important part, where daddy got to walk me down the isle to my handsome future husband. What a fairy tale ceremony it was!

A short trip down the road to the Circa Gallery and a spontaneous stop at Milk Bar was where our incredible wedding photos were taken. Amanda and Goshia from Estilo were totally professional and full of energy, getting super excited about all the great light angles and reflections that happened to be surrounding us. We absolutely LOVED the final result!

Off to our fantasy reception venue at Level Three we went, where Miguel from Funxion Fusion turned this urban blank canvas into an absolute dream! No detail was left unnoticed, from chandeliers, our monogram on each perspex chair, soft billowing drapes and perfectly elegant flowers, we were blown away by how magnificent everything was! Franz from Hashtag Hot Caterers took it to the next level of euphoria with the most delectable food anyone could ask for, some guests even asking for seconds and thirds!

Nothing could be faltered, from our three tiered, ombre cake from Pauluz Events, to our music courtesy of DJ Joe Ebersy, our night was filled with abundant sweetness, boundless love, sheer happiness and a packed dance floor of people dancing the night away!

Were we so blessed to have had the wedding we had and it wouldn't have been possible without all the love and effort made by our close friends and family. We couldn't have dreamed of a more perfect and magical wedding day...

Our magic day would't have been possible without all our amazing vendors!
