My Special Day

I was fortunate enough to have my weddingdress as my stress factor. (Hehe) Two weeks before my wedding my dress was not what I wanted and had to start looking for another one. I saw my dress 4 days before my wedding at A&T and fell inlove they were extreamly helpful and I absolutely loved my bling bling dress. My hair I went for the 50s look with the big fringe. My shoe was the classic lace form Anella weddings shoes. Jewellery was little as my dress had more then enough. So it was a combination of bling classic and lace. I had a second dress for the after party as I love dancing and wanted to be comfortable.

The Venue

Diamamt wine estate Paarl. The venue was amazing and 24 guests had a room for the night. The rest of the guests booked at nearby guesthouses.

My Bridal Beauty Regime

As a couple we are quite healty and gym but before my wedding I wanted to loose abit of muscle so went on the Csn Nutrition diet of Dr. Cristo Snyman. I was an amazing diet as it consists of detox period and diet. This helped me to have a beautiful skin and loads of energy.
I am fairly pale so did a spray tan that gave me that little extra glow that I wanted. Lashes nails and waxing was done by Ilana

Wedding Elements

As my now husband is a chef alot of our flowers were vegetables like broccolli,cauliflower, wild shemeji mushrooms, kale, spinach and bunches if baby marrow mixed with burgandy and white flours. It was autumn and the vineyard leaves were rust brown and red witch fit our theme perfectly as my husband also wore a burgandy suit. DIAMANT where we got married is a gorgeous venue that has to be seen to be appreciated. We had lounge pockets with fire pits and fairy lights just next to our actual reception venue where most of the evening was spent. In our reception venue, naked bulb installations could be found over hanging every table making for unbelievable lighting with a very warm ambiance. Its impissible to describe everything!!!!!!!!!
