Magical Moments

 

The most memorable moment of our day was definitely when I walked down the aisle and I made a song for my husband which played in the background and he could not stop crying. That moment when I knew today was the day that we got to spend the rest of our lives as husband and wife that was now our new normal was the most special for us.

The Honeymoon

 

We went on Honeymoon to Ngwenya lodge near the Kruger National Park. It was truly the best holiday ever and the sightseeing was amazing.

The Venue

We got married at Oakfield farm which is located in Muldersdrift Krugersdrop. It was not far for the guests so many of them did not stay the night, but Oakfield has a guesthouse if some wanted to stay.

My Bridal Beauty Regime

My bridal beauty regime:

Health & Fitness: Me and my husband are big joggers so that is basically the only thing we did, but usually when I stress I lose a lot of weight so at the end of everything on our wedding day my wedding dress was to big!

Skin: I drank a lot of water to keep my skin hydrated and just did my normal day to day routines, I have very sensitive skin so I did not want to try anything new my skin might not liked it.

Teeth: Just did my daily routine and used teeth whitening toothpaste.

Spa treatments: We left the spa treatments for after the wedding!

Wedding Elements

Oakfield our venue mainly did all the decorations, we only had to provide the flowers which we ordered from Ansen flowers and consisted of a bouquet for our table and just rose pedals for the rest of the tables, he also provided a bouquet for me(I was so excited I forgot mine walking down the aisle) and a flower for my husband to pin on his jacket. We organized our sound and everything from church so we did not have to worry about that.

My Groom And His Groomsmen

Groom: We bought his whole suit from Woolworths, He wore a blue suit, white shirt, blue tie, brown shoes.

Groomsmen: They had to organize their own suits, they wore white shirts, blue bowties, beige pants and brown shoes
