How did your love story begin?


This is a typical High School love story...

We had some mutual friends that introduced us, and it was love at first sight. We had some ups and downs but in the end we worked things out.

Tell us all about the proposal.


We had planned a fun filled day in Magoebaskloof, little did I know what he had up his sleeve. The morning we had a small snack at Magoebaskloof adventures before we went exploring. After this we went for our planned couple shoot as I thought we needed some professional photos. During the shoot the Photographer asked that she wanted some serious photos annnddd that's what she got... THE PROPOSAL.

My Special Day

I wanted to go with a modern but yet plain wedding look. with the help of my hairdresser and make up artist they made every dream come true. My jewelry was my something borrowed and something old. I wore my grandmothers watch and had some pearls that I borrowed from my Maid of Honor. My lingerie and shoes was a gift from my mother.

The Venue

Villa Maroela Game Lodge in Polokwane. The guests stayed over in the lodge and enjoyed breakfast with us the next morning.

Wedding Elements

Most of our Décor was done by the Venue it self, and the rest we made ourselves.
We went for a rustic look with a lot of succulents all over.

My Groom And His Groomsmen

Black suits with the weeding colors matching ties. The outfits we found at Mr. Price & Markham's. The ties were made by Carla Designs.

Beautiful Bridesmaids

They wore infinity wrap dresses that was also made by Carla Designs. The infinity dress was an easy inspired look because they could've wrapped it the way the felt comfortable in it. The shoes we covered ourselves as we struggled to get a color to match their dresses. We made it a fun activity.
