Magical Moments


My highlight & memorable moments of my wedding day was when my Dad saw me for the first time in my wedding gown, It was so emotional as my dad and I are extremely close. My dad and I burst into tears and held each other for awhile.I will never forget that moment!
Walking down the long path to the isle, I was so excited to see my now husband, Matthew waiting for me. I couldn't wait to see his reaction when he turned around. He Started tearing up when he saw me walk down the isle with my dad and all I could do is smile. The way he looked at me when my dad gave me away was something else! I cant even describe it, It was just LOVE!

The Honeymoon


We went to a beach resort in Mauritius, It was called Beachcomber Le Canonnier.
This was my first overseas trip and we absolutely loved it!
It was so magical,we had a spa day, snorkeling in the clear blue seas, going on a catamaran going sight seeing, shopping in Port Louis & exploring everything that there is to explore.
We relaxed which was so refreshing.
We had the best Honeymoon ever! Would go back any day.

My Special Day

I went for a modern but elegant wedding look.
My wedding dress: Vonve Bridal Couture
I loved everything about my dress. The amount of detail it had was something else. I went with a nude/ivory dress as it went with my skin tone and went for a long and dramatic veil to complete the look. I had two looks in a sense as I had an attachment to the dress for the Ceremony and took it off once we walked into the Reception. I LOVED MY DRESS.

My Hair: Studio 310 Hair Salon
I went with an up-style hair do as I prefer having all of my hair out of my face. My close friend/ Hairdresser did an amazing job with my hair.We went for a tight but loose bun. Jen also put in a hair accessory (from Vonve) around my bun as I new I wasn't going to wear a lot of jewelry.

My Make Up: Blink Bridal & Beauty
My make up artist is amazing too. We went for a fresh look but still eye catching. Light lip with different shades of nudes and golds to go with my dress. Its amazing how make up can make one feel.

My Shoes: Steve Madden
I wore a nude colour , thick heel with a thick diamante strap over my toes and a thin diamante strap around my ankle. Loved my shoes, they were extremely comfortable to walk in on grass,bricks and to dance in them.

My Jewellery: Jade Jewelers
I wore Cubic Ziconia studs as I needed something plain as my dress had a lot of detail on it and wore a petite bracelet with 3 Cubic Zirconia stones spaced out on it.

Lingerie: Bra's N Things

The Venue

We got married at Oxbow Country Estate in Bronkhorstspruit which is close Pretoria.

This venue is amazing! Mariette which was my wedding coordinator went over and beyond for us.
Our Guests stayed over at the venue itself and many stayed at accommodation next door and around the area.

My Bridal Beauty Regime

Well I "tried" to eat healthy before my wedding considering I am an emotional eater :)
I went for facials, waxes, pedicures at sorbet before the wedding.
My brother & sister in law are dentists so they treated me with a clean and teeth whitening a few weeks before the wedding.
Also had to get my nails and eyelashes done as well as my hair dyed.

Wedding Elements

Decor was done by Red In Paris

My colour scheme for our wedding was Blush pink, White & gold.
I had White roses & pink hydrangeas flowers, with a little bit of greenery to add to the mix. We had soft champagne table clothes with champagne candles and white pearl candles on the table with candelabra holders. High & low vases with a bouquet of flowers on top of it. Every second table was different as we went with a bigger bouquet on the other tables with only one center piece in the middle with candles etc...
My bouquet was pretty big which i loved- I had pink hydrangeas in the center with white roses on the outside of it with beautiful white orchids hanging from the bouquet.
We had a flower backdrop behind us. It was light white see through curtains, with flowers hanging from the top of it.
