I started to exercise 3 months before our wedding just to get in shape to fit into my wedding dress and also followed a strict clean diet.I went for 3 facials prior to my wedding just to have a smooth and beautiful glowing skin.
Our decor and flowers were done by Envie concepts , Tony Peng. The flowers were very earthy , rustic with a touch of tropical leaves and a modern feel to it. We had a lot of Banksias, king proteas, Monstera leaves , branches , silver brunia etc.
Our decor was very earthy with malawian chairs and malawian weaved basket lightning hanging from the roof. We had a big tent with fires burning and couches with a pop of colour and a gin bar for all the guest to enjoy their evening and be at their comfort. We had normal lightning until we opened the dancefloor . Then the smoke machine and strobe lightning started. It was such a fun evening and all the guests enjoyed it a lot.
The Groom wore a charcoal colour suit from Khaliques Cedar square and shoes from Aldo. The Groomsmen wore suits and shoes from trenert and country road.
