My Special Day

I felt like a princess in my white puffy dress. I defnitly went for a more natural look. My hair was done to the side with a plat and soft loose curls. My shoes was very unique. I wore 'tekkies' that was custom made for the wedding. My jewellery was very plain and elegant.

The Venue

Our wedding took place at Shalwyn in the beautiful Talla Valley in KZN. 40 of our guests spend the night at the venue. The accomodation was really nice and they also have a honeymoon suite 6km from the venue where the bride and bridesmaids can spend the night before the wedding.

My Bridal Beauty Regime

I lost 18kg in a year . It was hard work and dedication but so worth it. I felt so confident in my dress.

Wedding Elements

Some of my decor was done by my mother. She spend hours and hours of making DIY decor and it was absolutley perfect. My mom also did all the flower arrangements and venue set up. She was my personal wedding planner.
I rented a few decorations from desire2hire in Durban North. Carryn personalize the decor for you.
The white washed 10 seater picnic table's belonges to the venue and the wimbledon chairs was rented from Muirheads in PMB. Cecil from executive Dj's supplied the lighting for the dancefloor. We had the most beautiful fairylights backdrop behind the bridal table. There were fairylights al over the hall.

My Groom And His Groomsmen

The groom rented his grey suit from Eurosuits in Umhlanga. The groomsmen bought their grey chino's, white shirts and brown shoes from Mr Price. The groom and groomsmen each wore a mint colour bow tie that we rented from Eurosuit. They wore superhero socks..Superman(groom), Batman, Spideman, Ironman, Captain America and the Flash.
