Magical Moments

 

It is hard to single out just one memorable moment from a day that was filled with them but there’s nothing that compares to the feeling of walking into the chapel with my dad and seeing James for the first time. I couldn't wait to see him and when I did, I couldn't stop smiling, he looked so handsome and the look on his face was magic. All of the years of being together, months of planning and minutes of nervous excitement build up to an unforgettable and overwhelming moment that will never leave me.

My Special Day

White long sleeves deep plunging v neck heavily embellished Pollardi wedding dress from Bridal Room. (Because all girls want to shine bright on her wedding day) I went for something totally different as your typical bride and each Pollardi dress is truly unique. If you want a solemn and ultra-sexy gown then Pollardi wedding dresses are created especially for you. Be sure, you will be the most compelling bride. I surely felt like one.

Shoes by YDE. Open toe clear upper, Ankle-strap high silver block heel sandals.

Makeup and hair by Alecia Joubert from UBELLA. She is an absolute expert in her field. Her talent and passion for what she does certainly helped me have the best day ever.

Underware by bra’s and things

The Venue

Galagos Country Estate, Pretoria.

Nested in a lush green forest. The most beautiful, picturesque setting to have your wedding at. Galagos will most certainly add magic and wonder to your wedding. Top quality place. So much attention to detail with the most helpful and friendliest staff.

Most of the guests did stay over as well.

My Bridal Beauty Regime

Started off with a health and fitness plan 4 months before the wedding. It helped me stay focused and motivated for the big day.

Went for tan can sessions to help me get a glowing tan at Nevaeh Beauty Studio. I also went for a manicure and pedicure two days before the wedding.

Wedding Elements

Flowers and Harvest table done by Caar’i Flora/Wedding Emporium.

One word – spectacular! David and Alan, owners of Caar’i Flora & Wedding Emporium are the two most amazing gentleman you will ever meet. They created magnificent and beautiful artistry on my wedding day. I will never forget the tears of joy I shed as I stood in admiration of the most incredible beautiful table settings I’ve ever seen.

Nothing I wanted more than a colorful wedding and what better way to add color than with a selection of beautiful vibrant, bright and bold flowers.

My Groom And His Groomsmen

Styled in black & white. The groom’s party wore black and white with black bow ties and black suspenders. James wanted to stand out a little so he was wearing a black suit from Eurosuit with a black tie. Everyone had the same Pringle socks, shirts, belts and cufflinks bought from Pringle.

The Reception and Entertainment

No dancing lessons!

The Venue supplied us with a DJ. Eugene was amazing. I have never met a DJ with such knowledge and enthusiasm. He created and maintained an excellent atmosphere. Everyone had such a party and he had the wedding crowed dancing all night.

Theo Brits from Softlight Decor created a magical atmosphere with carousel styled fairly lights hanging from the roof, pillars and staircase.
