Magical Moments


There are so many wonderful moments, the emotional memories I will savour in my mind forever.

But walking down the aisle, with my father on my side, I will never forget my dad saying to me as we paused at the end of the aisle, as I was quite emotional, he asked: 'you ready', and I gave him a comforting nudge, then proceeding down the aisle, seeing my husband to be at the end of the aisle and seeing all our special family and friends.
It was the most incredible moment that i will always treasure.
My bridesmaids were all so amazing throughout the whole engagement and process leading up to the wedding, something i will never forget.

The Honeymoon


We flew to the Cocoon Resort in Maldives, you can only get there by sea plane, which our travel agent surprised us with, as we thought we were going to have a normal boat ride to the island, that alone was so amazing, seeing the islands all around and the turquoise water. The weather was perfect, the resort staff were so attentive, the food was also great.

All aboard Travel - Tanya was our travel agent

My Special Day

I opted for a more classic style, the dress was so beautifully detailed, it didn't need anything else and I just love lace.
