Magical Moments

 

The highlight was walking don the aisle and seeing my husband to be standing there waiting for me at the end of the aisle.
The reception was one to remember as the DJ did not play one song we requested and did not even get our first dance song right lol, but it was the best wedding I've ever in spite of everything that went wrong!!

The Honeymoon

 

We would of Loved to go on honeymoon but unfortunately we did not go as our finances have not allowed for this. Hopefully in the near future.

My Special Day

I was going for a modern bohemian but yet fairy-tale kind of a feel with my wedding dress - Made by Jolene Rokebrand From Fleur designs.

My Hair and make up I kept simple and clean with a but of a smokey eye on the top lid. - Thanks to Monettes bridal studio from Kleinmond they travelled to us to come and do our hair and make up.

Jewellery I only decided to wear teardrop shaped earrings that I had worn before to a friends wedding. Simple yet elegant.

My Shoes - very simplistic open toed high heel in a natural skin colour tone.

The Venue

We got married at Old Mac Daddy in Elgin Valley, we had a fun weekend wedding away for all our guests.

Old Mac Daddy

If you dream of a bespoke barefoot wedding you will love Old Mac Daddy; set amongst apple orchards and the pine whispering slopes of the Elgin Valley.

My Bridal Beauty Regime

I don't really have a beauty regime so I did try to excerise everyday eat healthy and drink lots of water.
I used Tissue oil on my skin instead of cream to give it a more moisturised/glowing feel and look.
Made sure that my nails and feet were on fleek and looking good.

I'm a very low maintained kind of a girl when it comes to beauty regimes. I will always keep it as simple as possible.

Wedding Elements

We wanted a rustic but simple look with a modern twist to it.

There where greenery runners of penny gum as well as white table cloth runners on the tables with white floating candles in glass jars on the long wooden tables with our choice of silver and white cutlery and crockery.
And of course Fairy lights dangling from the ceiling.

We did all the décor ourselves.

My Groom And His Groomsmen

The Groom and Groomsem where all dressed up in stunning Navy Blue Suits with white buttoned shirts and brown shoes, the Groomsmen all had red ties on as well.

Thanks to Bride and Co In Canalwalk shopping centre they all looked amazing.
