Magical Moments

 

Waking up the morning of my wedding, knowing that we will become husband and wife, was absolutely amazing. It was such a beautiful summer day with a clear blue sky. I felt like a princess walking down the isle to my prince. The tears filling up in his eyes was so precious. Everything was perfect. Entering the venue, the way the venue looked, took my breath away. The candles on the tables were glowing with the beautiful flowers. It was so romantic. All the tears, laughter and love from our friends & family was so special. And I have to mention our beautiful 3 tier wedding cake stood on a beautiful perspex acrylic stand! The sweetie table filled with macaroons, turkish delight, and heart cut out fudge was to die for and added a little bit of sweetness in our romantic elegant day! It definitely put a smile on our loving guests faces!
Not to mention the moment we stepped onto the dance floor as husband and wife, only the two of us, how romantic!

The Honeymoon

 

We went to Mauritius for honeymoon, it was absolutely amazing! My husband surprised me with our honeymoon, I only found out at the airport as we booked in our luggage.

My Special Day

My special day started off with a lovely light breakfast at the beautiful Erinvale Hotel where my mother and I spent the night before the wedding. My bridesmaids came over and we started to get ready for the big day. The excitement built up as the day went on. I went with an elegant, romantic look. My dress was fitted and flowy with soft material with a beautiful lace over. My hair was in a soft, elegant loose side bun with loose curls hanging down to fit with my dress that had a beautiful open detailed back. My make up was dark smoky eyes with gold and browns to bring out my brown eye colour with a soft pink lipstick to complete the elegant romantic look. My shoes were a beautiful champagne gold colour featuring a crystal encrusted bow at the toe. I didn't want jewellery that is too big or too bulky as my dress had crystals on the lace and straps, so I had an elegant bangle made of swarovski pearl balls and swarovski crystal balls. My earrings were also made of swarovski crystals and swarovski pearls. I had a hairpiece made of swarovski crystals that were put into my loose side bun. And there I stood in front of the mirror, looking at myself, thinking "the time has arrived"...

My Bridal Beauty Regime

Health & Fitness is very important to me and I also work in the industry as a Biokineticist. I definitely exercised before the wedding. I went to have my nails done with my mom the day before the wedding. Two weeks before the wedding I started with Tan Can sessions to get a natural look tan to compliment my dress.

Wedding Elements

To fit in with the romantic elegant theme of our wedding, I went with a champagne gold, white and different shades of pink colour scheme. Our flowers were in different shades of pinks, light and dark, with cream and white flowers. All in crystal and glass vases. There were beautiful crystal chandeliers hanging from the ceiling at the venue and with extra up lights in pink shades and candles gave it a romantic feel to our special day.
