Magical Moments


The moment I first saw my husbands face. I fell in love all over again he was looking so handsome.

Wedding Gallery


My Special Day

I wanted a very romantic look but still natural and sexy. I did my own makeup using mac. My dress was desighned and made by Leo Validus and was super comfy and easy to wear. My shoes was a wedge and made out of denim material. I also had a denim bollero when it got colder. My lingerie was simple with little bit of lace in nude. My jewelery I got from Lovisa's and my flower crown was made by my mom out of gyp flowers.

The Venue

We got married at Oppiplaas. It was a farm themed wedding and the food was amazing. The guests stayed in guesthouses around the venue.

My Bridal Beauty Regime

I did the usual home facials ( nothing extreme) my hair was coloured to a dark granate red and i got my ends cut. I had a pedicure the week before the big day and my nails were done the day before the wedding. The morning of the wedding I took a long bath and shaved. When I got out I used a body butter all over my body.

Wedding Elements

My mother did all my decor everything was denim blue and white with alot of farm elements. The flowers we kept simple and everything was very plain and natural with lots of lamps and candles everywhere.

My Groom And His Groomsmen

The groom and his bestman went for a plain denim and white button shirt and navy blue blazer jackets. Easy and simple to find.

Beautiful Bridesmaids
