Our special day took place at Shepstone Gardens. It was no doubt the most important day of our lives which we got to share with the people we love most and that are closest to our hearts. I finally got to marry my partner in crime for the past 10 years, my best friend and the man of my dreams. The fact that it took place at a stunning venue with breathtaking views, amazing scenery, beautiful weather and great food and music was just a bonus.
I would describe my wedding look as sleek, sophisticated and modern. Since my dress was the statement piece, I wanted it to have all the attention. I went with a very simple up do hairstyle with soft curls and a natural glam makeup look to relax the vibe of my entire look. I wore a simple but long veil which complimented my dress and for my “something blue” I wore a blue and diamond tennis bracelet which was given to me by my sister who was also one of my bridesmaids. My bouquet consisted of 3 king proteas and white orchids which flowed beneath them.

Included in the colour scheme for our wedding decor was blush, greenery and a touch of rose gold. Flowers consisted of king proteas, roses and pennygum. Lots of glass, candles and mirrors to complete the glamorous look.

Dean Goosen from DGR photography captured our special moments. We had the opportunity of having a free trial photo shoot with her before we decided on going with her for our wedding which was amazing! She’s absolutely great to work with and made smiling and laughing in front of the camera so easy!
