Wedding Gallery


My Special Day

It was classic yet vintage. Simple

The Venue

It was a local venue in PE called La Colline

My Bridal Beauty Regime

I ate healthily by cutting out sugar and carbs & trained at a crossfit box. I also treated myself the week of the wedding to a full body massage and pedicure.

Wedding Elements

We had a lot of greenery and white flowers with a touch of pink wax flower. My husband is a hunter so we made each table a beaded animal instead of a number. It was rustic yet original.

My Groom And His Groomsmen

He wore a navy suite and groomsmen wore charcoal grey suites

Beautiful Bridesmaids

I kept with the vintage style and had long taupe dresses made with white lace sleeves

My Captured Moments

Our photographer was Rachel Andrews who was AMAZING as well as Dirk Moggee who is putting together our video. We had a selfie sofa with props for our guests

The Wedding Planner

Danike at La Colline

Wedding Transport

A black Rolz Royce (I hope I spelt it right)

Food & Cake

My God Mother made our beautiful cake and the food was prepared by the venue

The Reception and Entertainment

We started off doing dance lessons but ended up just doing our own thing. It was a real party! We had a DJ
