Magical Moments


27th April 2017 was the best day of my life. Going through the aisle my husband was waiting for me. All the guest were excited, it was just my moment. First and last day all attention were on me and I enjoyed every moment.

The Honeymoon


After traditional wedding, I began my new bride duties at my husband's home. I went back to work in the following week, therefore my mother in law was supposed to be spoiled by her new makoti, lol. After all we have our time with my husband for our honeymoon. We are planning our honeymoon for our 1st anniversary.
