My Special Day

I wanted a dress that accentuated my body after going from one fitting to another I could not find what I was looking for so I eventually settled for a custom made dress. My dress was designed by Biji - La Maison de Couture. That was the best decision ever. My dress is still “trending”.

Hair and make was done by professional make-up artist- Faith Seoue

Jewellery - Browns

The Venue

We got married at Summer Place in Sandton.

My Bridal Beauty Regime

I had no beauty regime the only thing that I did was to go for eyelash extension a couple of days before the wedding.

Wedding Elements

For my decor I went for a clean yet elegant look.

For the gazebo I went for white flowers with touch of pink to keep our guests guessing.

My Groom And His Groomsmen

The Groom and Groomsmen wore custom made suits.

Beautiful Bridesmaids

Our Color Scheme was “Shades of Spring”. So my bridesmaids wore different shades of pink. Their look was designed by Suzy J. She has such a warm and fun personality.

My second dress was also designed by Suzy J

Marriage Officer

Rev. Mandla Gamede presided over our wedding. We couldn’t have chosen a better Minister to marry us. He was truly God sent.

My Captured Moments

Our special moments were capture by the most amazing people who are passionate about what they do:

Michael Tree (Michael Tree Photography)

We also made use of a photo booth with props which was fun and exciting. To top it all up we also made use of a drone to capture the aerial views of our special day.

The Wedding Planner

Guy Granger of Elysian Events planned our entire wedding and he was also there to direct on the day so everything ran smoothly like a well oiled machine. My hat off to Guy!
