Wedding Elements

Everything was a total surprize! I told my service providers and venue my colour scheme and that I LOVE flowers. It was beyond my imagination. It was more that i could ever wish - they took my breath away! The Chapel, the venue: table setting and decoration, out-side dancing area with the naked bulbs and food was perfect.

Flowers : Fleur le Cordeur
I told Heike that I love flowers and colour and her specific words to me was " I will spoil you with flowers and that was what she did!!

Beautiful Bridesmaids

My Captured Moments

Adele Joubert Photography - a local photographer from Wellington.

She is well known to the family as she also did a family shoot with my whole family, just before my mom started with her cancer treatments. On that day we made so many special memories what we treasure in our hearts forever as my mom past away!

Adele also did a engagement shoot with me and Chris, that really helped just to be more relaxed and to enjoy the photo taking moments on the wedding day. She is very professional and on time...she give more that what is expect of her!

The Wedding Planner

My sister helped me to plan our dream day!!

Food & Cake

Linda Bruyns Catering from Wellington

The special thing about our Caterer is that she was my Home economics teacher from High School and that she arranged our special treat (dessert on our first date: Italian Kisses) for our guests.

Cake : A friend of my mom wanted to bless us with a wedding cake, a Lady of Villiersdorp baked the 3 layer naked, Vanilla and Caramel cake!

The Reception and Entertainment

The reception was a big party and we danced till the last song! Our DJ was Gideon from DJPG Sounds, would recommend him for any wedding. Professional, on time, read the crowd and in control of the whole night.

Chris and I had dance lessons at Phox Dance Academy in Paarl.

We had the most amazing dance routine on the song "Perfect" from Ed Sheeran

That is a wrap for a PERFECT wedding day for the newly wed WILLEMSES!! XXX
