Magical Moments

 

It was a warm sunny day in the heart of the bush veld, under a 300 year old Fig tree that we made a promise to each other.
Birds were singing while the rays of the sun was shining through the leaves. Our wedding day represented our love for nature.
A big surprise was the voices in the crowd objecting to us getting married. This was in fact family friends who flew all the way from Australia to attend our wedding. The emotions was overwhelming, tears of joy rolled down my cheek.
Our 5 year old ring bearer entertained the guests at the ceremony. He spontaneously asked the DJ fro the microphone and started singing in front of all 100 guests. Singing and dancing like a pro!

The Honeymoon

 

My husband kept the honeymoon a big secret! I was totally out of my comfort zone, as I am a total control freak and had no idea what to pack in my suitcase.

Well, he took me to Zanzibar, where we spent our honeymoon in the 5 star Sea Cliff Resort. Sun, sea, sand and cocktails was just what I needed!
I've never been spoiled so much, the personnel from Sea Cliff made sure we had the best time of our lives!

My Special Day

After fitting exactly 45 dresses I picked the very last dress - this was a Enzoani Blue dress from Bridal Wardrobe. My mother bought me a very special pair of earrings also from Bridal Wardrobe in Sandton.
Oh the shoes!!! What a story, after nearly getting married barefoot (due to the fact that no wedding shoe fitted my taste), the shoes I ordered online finally arrived. I imported Badgley Mischka shoes, the most beautiful and comfortable shoes I have ever owned!
My make-up and hair was done by UniQ Make-up / Training - Pretoria and my hair by Elle Hairdressing. These girls are the absolute best team for any bride and the bridal party. Anele and Elmarie was more than just a make-up and hair artist, they made sure we laughed, relaxed and enjoyed every minute of the preparations. My garter was handmade by a very special friend Zelda, with every detail sown by hand. My nails were sculpted and handpainted by the very talented Bernice Bezuidenhout, who owns The Gossip Hair & Beauty Salon in Vanderbijlpark.
My husband bought me a rose gold Pandora bracelet as a wedding gift and apart from the earrings it was the only jewellery I wore on the day.

The Venue

We got married at the beautiful Kuthaba Bush Lodge, Nylstroom, Limpopo.
Guests stayed at the Lodge for the entire weekend. From camping in Bush babies to Bungalows and chalets, all outdoor expectations were met!

My Bridal Beauty Regime

Every bride wants to look their best on the big day. I did go to the gym, had a few facials and maintained my skin care routine. I use the products from Bio Medical Emporium, designed by Dr Judy!

Wedding Elements

The flowers and decor was covered by the very talented Christa Botha from Op Dolly Decor. When meeting this very spontaneous lady I knew my table decor and flowers were in the best hands.

My father also played a role, as he made all the benches on which the guests sat under the tree. What a special touch to our outdoor wedding.

My Groom And His Groomsmen

This is the part where I only had a choice of colour :-)
Renier and his groomsmen went on a shopping spree and I had absolutely no idea what they had planned. It came out quite perfect at the end.

Beautiful Bridesmaids

My bridesmaids wore dresses from House of Superior Clothing and the flower girls wore wrap dresses. I wanted them to look both beautiful but also comfortable.

Marriage Officer

Our Minister enjoyed the entire weekend with us, as he is very well known to myself, Renier and the guests. Ds Hannes Nagel married us, and he made sure we had a good laugh and a few tears. And he made us kiss a lot!!!

My Captured Moments

We made use of June & July Photography who handled both the photos and the video.

Wedding Transport

The road to the Fig tree requires cars with good ground clearance, which was no problem for us as we have a good friend who owns a one of a kind restored Willy's Jeep. This served as the wedding car and resembled our outdoor nature theme. Guests who owned a 4x4 vehicle drove to the tree with their own cars and some had a nice ride in the Game Drive vehicle.

Food & Cake

Sweet Temptaions is owned by Danette Pretorius, a very special lady from Hartbeespoort dam. Not only does her cakes look good, they taste great. The two layered naked cake came all the way from Harties to Limpopo.

Wedding Stationery

The tears of joy tissues was done by my hubby and me a few days before the wedding, he felt like crying once it was done. The rest of the stationary was done and created by Troulantyntjies. They are precise and on point! I loved how they incorporated the colours to my burlap and bush veld theme.

The Reception and Entertainment

We danced the night away!!! We didn't go for lessons, only practiced on the patio a few times. We made use of 4seasons mobile who ensured we filled the dance floor with every song.
