How did your love story begin?

 

My husband and I were not meant to be together. I know it sounds strange but is the truth. We met through mutual friends and after about 3 months we eventually "hooked up". It was never supposed to happen though so the next morning I sent him a message saying that what happened the night before could never happen again. Well I clearly couldn't get enough because the next night we met up and "hooked up" again. And the rest as they say....is history. We have been together nearly 5 years and still going strong.

Tell us all about the proposal.

 

Mybhusband proosed to me on the 1st of January 2016, in front of friends and family. It was a complete surprise as I though we were just having a new years day lunch. Needless to say he had her planning it for almost 4 months. He asked my mother and father for their blessing. He asked his Ouma, mom and dad for theirs. He had his 2 nephews walk in holding placards that said "will you marry me". His knee wasn't even bent when I said yes LOL. I was completely blown away....he is such a romantic

Magical Moments

 

The most memorable part of my wedding day was seeing my husband cry when I walked down the aisle. He is a rough man and doesn't cry. I will never forget that. Another amazing part of my wedding day was dancing with my dad. A lot of woman are not so lucky to have their dad's at their wedding. I was and I will treasure that moment forever.

The Honeymoon

 

We havent been on hineymoon. I would love too but our finances cannot allow it right now. My husband also works away and I see once a month of I'm lucky

Wedding Gallery

 

My Special Day

I went NON TRADITIONAL. I wore a champagne coloured dress with black lace over it's entirety. I wore a black cage vail, black shoes and pearls. Pearl necklace. Pearl earings and pearls bracelets. My theme was vintage hollywood, so I had the make up and hair to match, right down to the red lips and rosey cheeks. Marilyn would have been proud.

The Venue

We got married at a venue in the area where we live called Highfield House. Most of our guests were from the area so no, they did not sleep over

Wedding Elements

My decor was black, cream and silver. I had ostrich feathers and pearls to go with the vintage theme as well as black bottles and a crystal tree with beads as centerpieces

My Groom And His Groomsmen

The groom wore a black suit with a white opened shirt and no tie. His groomsmen wore a black suit as well as a black tie and his Paige boys wore black dress pants, a white shirt and black suspenders with a matching now tie

Beautiful Bridesmaids

All my bridesmaids wore black dresses and each dress was different. I didn't want my bridesmaids to all match. I wanted them to feel comfortable. 2 dresses were floor length and 1 was mid calf length. They wore silver jewellery and black heels

Marriage Officer

Our marriage office was Dina Grobelaar
