Magical Moments


Well the whole day was so special to me. *The day started where i woke up with my bridesmaids they made the day so special for me and kept me calm. We had a wonderful breakfast and then started with curlers in our hair. * I had a special mother daughter moment whilst listening to a song that my bridesmaid chose out for us (Janita Claassen: Meisiekind).
*There was so many things that went wrong on this day but it was not important at that point we were both so excited that nothing else mattered. *The moment the doors of the church opened and there stands my groom at the altar waiting for me with tears in the eyes I was shaking while walking. *My dad walked me down the isle, it was such a special moment for us. *Our first dance and the reception having our family and friends there to celebrate our wedding day with us.
