My Special Day

My hair was a classic braided up do in a bun, my dress was a ballgown with a lot of bling in my corset, my shoes was pink and also full of bling to match the dress. my lingerie was white with patterns, my jewelry was simple just a bling bracelet with bling earrings.

The Venue

We got married at Lavandou Wedding and Events Venue, a gorgeous wedding venue. Some of our guest slept over at accommodation place near the wedding venue.

Wedding Elements

Our decor was a forest themed wedding, all the tables and chairs was wooden tables with only a hessian runners and just rustic wooden decor. Wooden lanterns with flowers and candles. We also got married in the forest chapel.

My Groom And His Groomsmen

They rented their suites at Euro Suites in Pretoria. The groom wore a full suit and the two groomsmen only wore their pants, shirts and under coats and they all wore cough-lings which was also rented by Euro Suite.

Beautiful Bridesmaids

My bride maids wore a silver top with pink and green pointed skirts that my grandmother made for them. I cam up with the look which i saw in the wedding magazine when i started planning my wedding day.

My Captured Moments

My photographer was Mandy Klopper, which i have been using since the day my little girl was born. She is a excellent photographer and i would refer her to anyone. we did not make use of a photo booth because i did not want to take pictures the entire day and not celebrate our day with all the guest.

The Wedding Planner

Me and my mom did all the planning our self. Lavandou had its own coordinator which did everything for me. i did nothing the day of my wedding or the day before.

Wedding Transport

I did not have any wedding transport as we got ready at the wedding venue and could walk all the way from the honeymoon suite trough to the chapel etc.

Food & Cake

The wedding venue prepared the food for us and Cand'Zine Cakes in witbank did my cake for me, and it was perfect.

Wedding Stationery

Zetties Creations, a lady named Suztte Krafft that did everything for me and it was perfect. Finger print Canvas, Table setting, thank you cards, invitations and confetti cones.

The Reception and Entertainment

We had 2 months of dance lessons because my husband couldn't dance at all. The wedding venue did our, lighting, DJ and sound for us.
