The highlight of my wedding day was seeing Him standing in front waiting for me. It felt like the whole world stopped. And only him and I mattered. Seeing all our loved once's when we walked out the Church, the smiles, everyone was happy. that meant a lot.
We left for Mauritius 2 days after our wedding, that was amazing.
Our wedding Theme was rustic vintage. My hare and make up was done by Salon dalyla. My hair was curled up to the side to show my back lays dressed. My make up was golden brown with a light lipstick. Lingerie was not a lot as my address had a corset inside, I had a lased panty with gold ends. I got diamond stud's for my ears, a bracelet and my tiara was given to me by my sister that she worn 14 years ago on her wedding day. My shoes, When Hubby fitted on his suite, I saw that silver pair of shoes at Bride & Co. I knew this was the shoe for me as my bridesmaids dress was the same colour.
We got married at Sha-mani wedding venue in Alberton. The guests could stay over as they have accommodation as well.
I only had two sessions of sunbed at Salon Dalyla
