The setting was incredible and the music was like violins that ran through my head as I saw my beautiful flower girl and bridesmaids make their way down the carpet and I suddenly felt my heart race as my song began to play.

It was our anual December year end function. We went to "The Vette Mossel" in Hartbeespoort. We had a lovely evening filled with laughs and our friends.When out of the blue he took a red ribbon tied it around my finger and asked me to marry him :) I was so shocked that I did not believe him only to found out the next day it was true when he gave me the ring. It was amazing....

My Special Day

My bridesmaids and myself had our make-up done by a lovely lady of the name Madelyn. She is the owner of Beauty Excellence in Pretoria and also the head makeup artist on Gkam Guru :) she is funny and so sweet. She made us laugh. Our dresses was made by Marguerite from MLRD Bridal Design Studio and what a pleasure to know her. My dress was a Victorian style dress with hints of my personality, my amazing ladies were steampunk and what a fun bunch they were. We loved every moment of it and never wanted it to end.. Thank you all <3

Wedding Elements

I absolutely love Victorian styles but even more Steampunk. We hand made the most beautiful underplates that looked like gears of a watch. Our serviettes had tiny pcket watches on and the tables was dark black with pops of red and colourful flowers. It was picture perfect for us :)

My Groom And His Groomsmen

oooh how I loved what my husband had on, on our special day :) He was a Steam Punk Air Pirate with beautiful black silk and a hint of red. His Groomsman had stunning underjackets on with a hit of Steam Punk flare. All of the clothing was made by Marguerite from MLRD Bridal Design Studio.
