Magical Moments


Our day was just perfect, I remember my stunning husband crying when I walked in and I remember being calm and happy getting ready with my daughter and bridesmaid, it was just absolutely breathtaking, it was exactly what I wanted. I remember our first dance where we almost fell though everyone thought it was part of our dance and just having everyone tell me how stunning it looks and the food.

The Honeymoon


Yes we went to Richardsbay but we had to take the kids with as my mother inlaw dropped us a day before the wedding so it was a family vacation instead.

Wedding Gallery


My Special Day

Elegant and romantic was our choice, my dress was stunning and had so many layers and my hair was up and curled, my shoes was 14cm high! And my make up was smokey yet romantic and beautiful, my accessories was only my hairpiece and my wedding ring as I'm not into too much, my lingerie was lacey and white and didn't last long.

The Venue

Casablanca Manor in Donkerhoek it was sooo beautiful! And they helped so much with the wedding day, there was a few hiccups but what wedding doesn't? Our guests did stay over and they loved it despite the owner being rude to them.

My Bridal Beauty Regime

I only ensured my skin didn't break out and I brushed my teeth with coconut oil furthermore I tried to enjoy my planning and I had to work so there wasn't time for pampering.

Wedding Elements

Our color was white and red, our décor was vintage with a touch of modern and we kept it simple yet enough, we wanted an elengant yet beautiful and romantic wedding, our flowers were red roses and greenery, the furniture was white tablecloths with chandelier velvet prints on in black and the chairs were tiffany see through with red organza tied to them and the centerpieces were roses with greenery and crystals ontop of a big glass vases

My Groom And His Groomsmen

We bought the grooms outfit at Bogart men and another designer's place we bought the ties and the cufflinks were bought at unbreakable man and the groomsman bought his outfit at Edgars, They wore black suits with red formal shirts and red and black ties with black shoes.

Beautiful Bridesmaids

I thought of her look, hair up and a infinity dress and silver shoes with make up that's natural and her nails were french, her outfit was ordered by Mystique van Heerden here in Witbank.
