How did your love story begin?


We met at my nephew's house one weekend. My cousin gave my number to him and we started to chat on mxit(without my parents knowledge) i was std 6 that time and eversince its been me and him. On our wedding day it marked 11 years together and i just knew he is the one...he is litterly my one and only!!

Tell us all about the proposal.


The proposal was actually so funny but at the time it happend i did not think it was funny.
Him and i had n huge argument the night before he decided to pop the big question. It was so bad that we went to bed angry he slept on the couch for the first time ever then the next moring i went to work without greeting him....the next moment when i saw him he was on one knee infront of me with my mother on his one side asking the big question...what can i say... YES ofcourse!!!

My Special Day

I went for the vintage look. My dress was bought at bride & co in cape town and absolutely LOVED it.

My hair & make up was pretty plain for i am a plain girl. I went for the natural look.

My wedding shoes was my favourite part as for it was red cowboy boots! I wanter to be deferent.

I loved everybit of how i looked!

The Venue

We got married at the Ashton cellar on the deck outside.

Wedding Elements

Our decor was vintage all the way. Lighting was the main focus point.
Me and my mom and family and friends did the whole wedding on our own and it was everything and more that i wanted.

They made my dream come alive.

The tables was white with vintage decor on.
