Magical Moments


My special highlights was the day of the wedding, seeing all my planning and effect getting realised just the way I visualised it. On the day I was a bit nervous and anxious for what could go wrong, but my family and friends supported me 100% and nothing went wrong. The morning of the wedding I was woken up by my bridesmaids and flower girls, the house was filled with family and friends all helping so that we can stay on schedule. The best part of my day was walking down the isle and seeing my husband waiting for me and having a packed church of family and friends to witness our marriage. We had a perfect sunshine day, and the evening we walked into our fair tale creation reception, our guest was happy and we danced the evening away.

The Honeymoon


We spend our honeymoon at the Sun City resort in the North West.

My Special Day

My wedding look was a natural but elegant.

My dress was custom made by Urban Bride
Hair and Makeup was done by Zita from Blush Makeup and Hair services

The Venue

We got married close to home, which was close enough for our guests to travel.

We got married at St Mary's Anglian Church in Kraaifontien.
Our Photos was taken at a Close by Wine Estate Hazendal, and the Reception was held at the Kraaifontien Town Hall.

My Bridal Beauty Regime

I didn't really have a regime, I tried to eat health and maintain my weight.

Wedding Elements

I was going for a elegant fair tale look,my décor was completely white with a touch of baby pink and blue.
My hall was draped with white linen, with fair lights as a back drop and coming out of the roof. My guest tables centre pieces was hired from Function for Hire, it was a flat top crystal candelabra that had a pink pose bouquet on the top with candles.

Heine Jack was in charge of my lights, every few minutes the lights on the white linen reflected a different colour, and this give a lovely effect on the crystal centre pieces and candles.

My Groom And His Groomsmen

The groom and groomsmen wore a pal blue suit with waist coats which was hired from Mr suit hire. The groom had a blue tie and groomsmen blue bows matching the bridesmaids to make them different to the groom.

Beautiful Bridesmaids

My bridesmaid had on long blue dresses with some sliver blink, my look for the bridesmaids and flower girls was stylish and cute. I was going for a more pastel look as we got married in spring. So I decided on blue and pink as my colour, and brought in my baby pink with my flower girls dresses.

Marriage Officer

Our Marriage officer was Fr. Andrew Wyngaard, he delivered a very blessed service.
