How did your love story begin?

 

Our love story began in 2009 ,when we first saw each other at a party, my fiancé asked his friend who I am and he then sent me an inbox message on Facebook, however we started chatting and getting to know each other. Then we decided to meet and we fell in love and 8 years later still going strong and we also have a beautiful 4 year old daughter together. We loved each other from day one.

Tell us all about the proposal.

 

On the 22nd of September 2017 , it was our 8 year anniversary, so I told my fiancé /bf then we must do something special that day . Little did I know that was the day he would pop the big question. I got ready for the day I asked him where we going he said it's a surprise... I thought we going to have lunch and spend the day at a day Spar. However he picked me up and we drove for an hour or so . We ended up going to hartebeesport , we we got to the place and he told me we going horse riding and I was very excited because I haven't been on a horse before. So we went horse riding and the owner told us when we reach the top of the hill we going to hike down. I was like shocked so anyways we continued walking and she said we must follow the trail she set up for us to go back. So on our way we stopped at the end of the trail and he had a picnic set up for me with champagne, flowers and a beautiful view, with food etc so I decided to sit down and take my phone out to take a selfie. As I turned around he was on his knees. It was very romantic I even had tears in my eyes because I had no idea me thinking it's just our anniversary today .

Magical Moments

 

My most memorable moment on our special day was seeing my husband's face as I walked down the isle,his eyes were filled with tears of joy. Words cannot express how emotional that made me when I saw him standing there.

My Special Day

If I must say so myself I felt and looked like a million dollars. My overall theme for our wedding was Paris, so when it came to my dress which I got at Eurobride PTA was to look like a princess but also very fashionable. My make up was done by Elena Joubert Blush Studios where I went for a dramatic but not too much look with red lipstick. My jewelry I bought from Lovisa which I loved ,I had a headpiece and stunning chandler earrings I love bling. My shoes I bought online from Zando also very sparkly.

The Venue

We got married at Avianto Muldersdrift venue . My guests slept over at the venue and also various hotels nearby.
