Magical Moments


My wedding day was one of the most important days of my life; celebrating the love between myself and the love of my life. Being Hindu we had ceremonies which spanned over 3 days, and each ceremony was perfect.

We both looked for the perfect Jaw-dropping venue that fit our personalities, once we drove in the venue for the first time we knew that was the place we were going to get married. We had months of prep with the venue and on the day everything looked flawless. From our Aisle style, personalised décor, awesome entertainment, fabulous food and the best videographer and photographer to capture our 3 days.

The Honeymoon


We went on a Holiday 1 month later to Plattenburg Bay to a beautiful hotel called Beacon island.

It was magical and I could not have asked for a more romantic honey moon
