Magical Moments


The Most Special Day of Our Lives

I woke up on Thursday 29 March at 03:00 feeling not anxious nor nervous but truly just super excited as i knew this is the day i have been dreaming of since i was a little girl. I am getting married to the most extraordinary man on earth!

I then realized that i have to close my eyes and try to go to sleep again as i want to savor every second of this day.
Eventually at 04:30 i woke up my bridesmaids and told them to get ready as i could not wait a minute longer for the day to start.

I was absolutely one of "those brides" who had every detail planned and programmed. Its a good thing as every little detail of our perfectly planned wedding day went accordingly.

Two Hours before i became Mrs Geyser, my makeup & hair was perfect and it was time to put on the most gorgeous dress i have ever seen. I felt like a princess, timeless and beautiful in every sense of the word. We took photos, drank champagne and before we knew it, it was time to go and meet my groom to make the most important promise of our lives.

To be totally honest the whole day was the most memorable day of my life. I literally got the wedding of my dreams to the man of my dreams, everything was perfect. There isn't one thing that i would do differently. It was a classic, timeless wedding that would be beautiful for years to come.

The Honeymoon


We went to Thailand, Phuket for our honeymoon. Beautiful doesn't quite do it justice. I don't think there are words of how to describe Phuket adequately, maybe one - PARADISE!

Wedding Elements

Well i have a very creative family. My Mom and aunt did the flowers with a little bit of help from friends and other family members, the same aunt and my uncle made wooden objects such as a wedding newspaper stand and wooden bench that served as our guest book. 4 the love of laser made the cake topper and decorative light stand. My sister and brother in-law did the decorative lighting 'wiring' and decor. The furniture belonged to Casa Cara and the rented elements came from all over 'Potcheftroom and Middelburg' .
