We had a very small wedding with only 50 guests - but the guests that were there were people who have been involved in our lives since we met. Everyone got along - the day was just very happy. Everything came together on the day making it just perfect.
We had 5 days at Mabula Game Reserve - a gift from my sister and brother in law
We went for an elegant semi vintage theme. Mint green and ivory
My dress was a simple long ivory bridal satin and lace made by Madga Moller.
Magda also made my daughter and step daughters' dresses in a mint green
My hairdresser, Eric from Dis'se Moet Hair Salon did an elegant upstyle and semi-upstyles for my daughter and step daughter.
My shoes were a simple Pierre Cardin court shoes
Makeup was done by my husband's niece
We got married at Midrand Conference Centre. The service was in the small St Theresa's chapel and the reception in the Da Vinci venue.
My family all stayed overnight at the venue and some of the guests opted to stay the night at the venue at well
Maritza from RITZIE LIEF KREATIEF did my invitations, all my decor and flowers.
My invitations were printed on ribbon and were placed in a plastic ball - something unique :-)
We used brown/red Arum Lillies for my bouquet and for the table decorations. For the table decor the lilies were displayed in tall vases with water topped with a floating candle. On the tables we had had lots of candles and other greenery.
Candelabras, lanterns and other decor items were supplied by Accolades.
All cutlery and crockery and furniture were supplied by Midrand Conference Centre
The groom and groomsmen wore suits supplied by Bridal and Tuxedo, Lonehill
Grey suits, gold/ivory ties and tan shoes. My husband had a matching waistcoat ..... very very handsome
Mint up/down dresses with off shoulder lace sleeves. Nude court shoes.
The girls made the choice of their dresses and they were made by Magda Moller
We did a marriage preparation course with Dolf Germishuys from Song of Songs Marriage Ministries. Dolf was then the natural choice as our marriage officer
Maritza from RITZIE LIEF KREATIEF was also my photographer. As she had been completely involved in the planning of my wedding from the very beginning we were very comfortable with her on our wedding day. She got to know us and this showed in the images ...What a star!!!
