I had my dress designed at claris by Gerrit Pienaar.

The Venue

Our wedding were held at the Rosemary Hill farm situated on beautiful farmland just east of Pretoria. It is an organic working farm and has been in operation since 1978. From cultivating seedlings and planting veggies to distilling essential oils, this farm is truly unique in what it has to offer. The herd of Nguni cattle is always nearby to add a beautiful splash of colour to the landscape.
