Magical Moments

 

12 Years Ago,,marrying my best friend was all I could fantasize about and on the 15/7/17 my fantasy turned into a memorable reality. With plenty of planning and prayer,, our special day went off just as expected,,just PERFECT! We were humbly delighted to have our grandparents,,parents,,siblings and immediate loved ones,,share the day with us.. We still have a heart full of gratitude to our family members who have contributed a great deal towards the wedding.. from the speeches,, dances,,formalities and up to my hubbys Caducci suit lol,, everything still makes my heart melt each time I browse through our photobook/Gallery on my phone..

The Honeymoon

 

A wedding is not complete without a honeymoon .. as a teacher I was lucky enough to have an extra week off after my wedding as we tied the Knot during the school holidays.. we booked into The Hilton Hotel in Durban,,great service indeed.. after a few days we headed back to Eshowe and began preparing our New home :-)

Wedding Gallery

 

My Special Day

My wedding dress was designed sort of like the gown from the Kiddies Movie Frozen..#WinterTheme!
Hence my hairstyle complimented the dress design with hair accessories,, I have very small Asian eyes so my Mua created an illusion of elongation with neutral shades and largened the thickness of the outer wing which flowed into semi-cut crease..#MakeupAndThingsByReena!
My jewelry was all about Bling,,I looked The part of a Bride and ready TO Slay!

The Venue

We got married at a church in Durban which offered a hall as a reception area as well.. we looked at the best interest of our guests as we did not want too much of traveling involved..

Guests booked out at various hotels and BnBs in the vicinity of Umhlanga/North Beach/Durban North etc

My Bridal Beauty Regime

A day before the wedding,, My cousin,,maid of honour,,sister and aunt went to get our nails done:-) mine was Almond shaped nails with bridal artwork and stones-Nude shade*

Thereafter we went to a Spa at Coastlands Umhlanga,, heaven on earth!

Wedding Elements

My decor was done by SamCat Events,, We had a Paisely main stage decor with a Tiffany blue LED light which shone onto the set up.. our colours were Tiffany blue,,white and Silver..
We had round tables for guests and glass tables for the family of the groom and my family as well,,tiffany chairs which created absolute elegance! Our centre pieces were silver crescent shaped that held flowers in the centre as well as large tubed shaped Vases..Blessed enough my hubbys grandmother is exceptional at Floral Arrangements!
Isle stands with flowers was a must!

My Groom And His Groomsmen

Groom always dresses Italian so he wore a Caducci suit(close to the tiffany blue colour) bought from Shadows and a blue Carvella from Spitz which complimented the suit..
Groomsmen wore light grey suits bought from Truworths Man with Carvellas as well.
Button holes were Included with white roses,,tiffany blue ties and white shirts
