How did your love story begin?


We met at The Innibos festival but didn't take each others numbers. After two weeks we both decided on impuls to go to hatfield square on my 40days and between all those people we bumped in to each other.

Tell us all about the proposal.


If you know my fiance he usually isn't good at being romantic so for the engagement he went all out. He made little messages and put them in little bottles and packed them on the beach. As i pick up the last one he goes down on one knee and pops the question.

Magical Moments


On my wedding day we got married on a old bridge and just being able to walk down the aisle and see my Husbands face made my day.

The Honeymoon


Yes we did, we were lucky enough to go to Beachcomber Le Mauricia hotel in Mairitius

My wedding look was funky fairytale. I had a big puffy dress with a red underlay. My hair was long curls half up behind my back with a hand made hair piece. My jewellery was soft pearls with a bit of diamonds.

The Venue

We got married on ou farm right outside a small town called Burgersfort. Some of our guests camped over and the orher ones stayed in close by lodges.

My Bridal Beauty Regime

I am naturally not a cream and facial person. But i did go for my nails and toes and i ate healthy for my big day.

Wedding Elements

My wedding colours were black, white, red and wood. My flowers were a combination of red and white roses, proteas as well as gyp and leaves. I had hand made wood centre pieces and serviette rings. My tent was decorated with white draping as well as fairylights. The whole theme was farm style vibe.

Beautiful Bridesmaids

Marriage Officer

My Captured Moments

We had two photographers known as Kikipro Photography which did a splendid job with our photos. We also Had a videographer known as Candice Joubert. She is still busy with the video but I love her work. We did have a self cater photo booth witch was a lot of fun.

The Wedding Planner

Not really we did most of our décor and arrangements ourselves. I did have a friend of ours help arrange the food and plates so that helped a lot.

Wedding Transport

I had a Metallic green Classic Chevrolet Malibu

Food & Cake

The meat was prepared by a friend of my fathers and all the salads and breads were done by my whole family. My cake was done beautifully by Kleinzuikerbosch Cake Studio.

Wedding Stationery

As I am a Graphic designer I did all my stationery on my own.

The Reception and Entertainment

To quote all my guests " this was one of the best and fun weddings they have been to". We are lucky enough to have been able to invite everyone I wanted there. We had 240 guests and most of them stayed until late. We did have dancing lessons and we loved every class. We had the privilege to ask a good friend to do our music(DJ), his name is Greunen and he did a amazing job.
