Magical Moments


One of my biggest highlights was the moment I walked into the church and saw the emotions on the grooms face. The first dance was great and natural. I loved the night shoot and the special picnic after our photo shoot before we entered the hall.

The Honeymoon


Our honeymoon started with a trip to Paris for two days and then we were of to italy for four days before heading before getting on our 7 Day cruise ship to the Greek islands.

My Special Day

vintage french, the makeup was subtle and natural. My wedding dress was was a light beige underneath with white lace over and I bought very nice sparkling gold pumps to make sure I would be comfortable jet stylish on the big day. I kept the jewelery to a minimum with a simple small necklace and white pearl earings as the dress was a statement on its own

The Venue

Die Akker.

Our family stayed on the premises and many of the guests in surrounding guest houses silver fig and Rosemary Hill

My Bridal Beauty Regime

I had IPL laser for the dark pigmentation spots on my face and went for a few facials over the period.

I also put six crowns in my teeth as I have a problem with grinding on my teeth.

I also went for a spa treatment before my wedding and had laser hair removal for my under arms.

Al the treatments still benefit me today.
