Magical Moments


Every single moment was memorable but if i have to highlight one particular moment which i will treasure my whole life it would be this one...

10 min's before we had to leave to the Chapel, the Owner (Ane Steinberg) told me to take a few moments and take everything in before i leave, she told to me to go stand on the veranda, i heard the chapel bells ring...un be known to me my future husband was the person ringing the bell and he could see my from a distance standing on the veranda.

The Honeymoon


Yes, we visited the beautiful Solana Beach Resort in Mauritius

My Special Day

If i had to describe my look in one word...classic yet modern. I was fortunate enough to have two best friends do my makeup and hair. My Makeup was done by Zanelle Odendaal, who is also a preferred supplier at Florence Guest Farm and Tanya Burger from Imagica base in Pretoria did my hair.

The Venue

We got married at the beautiful Florence Guest farm based in Chrissiemeer, Mpumalanga. It was the perfect setting to create memories that will last a lifetime. Florence can accommodate over 60 guests, and their rooms and service are of the best quality. As per their website, "They have created a one-stop venue with a fairytale forest, a renaissance chapel, and a venue-hall beyond comparison with its old-world charm. Mooi-Nooi is the bride and her bridesmaids dressing haven, while The RamKamp is designed to please the groom and his men."

Wedding Elements

The theme of my wedding was "earth" and the decor included wooden under plates, eucalyptus leaves and white roses

My Groom And His Groomsmen

The Groom had a tailored made black suite and the grooms men wore chino trousers, white shirts and suspenders

Beautiful Bridesmaids

My bridesmaids wore beautiful wrap dresses, designed and made by Gelique. I had 6 bridesmaids and decided on 3 different colors. To fit with my earth theme, the 3 colors were, salmon pink, dusty green and moca.

My Captured Moments

One of the best decisions i made was to let Elaine and Steph from Dust & Dreams to capture memories of a life time. They are both so talented... the photos speaks for it self.

The Wedding Planner

I did not need a wedding coordinator because the venue and its owner, went out of their way to make my day special and ensured that everything runs smoothly

Wedding Transport

We had an X 5

Food & Cake

The best memory of the wedding, as per every guest was the food....The food were amazing and was prepared by Florence guest farms venue's kitchen staff. Truly a one stop shop for any wedding.

Both my husband and I are not fond of cake, so we decided on something a little bit different...a rice krispe treat cake, prepared by Tanya Loubsher Conradie from Simply Sweets Secrets.

Wedding Stationery

I took it upon myself to design and print my own stationary, which i thoroughly enjoyed.

The Reception and Entertainment

It was truly the best party and night ever! Both my husband and I love dancing so there was no need for dance lessons. Our DJ was a close friend of hours Johan Maritz who is also a preferred supplier at Florence Guest farm
