To have had all our loved ones celebrating such a special day with us. We are grateful to have such an amazing circle of friends and family! One of my bucket lists was to have my grandparents at my wedding and it really meant a lot to me to have had them there. Sounds cliché, however not many people are so lucky and blessed to have a family and good friends.
Yes, we traveled to Stellenbosch, Hermanus, Kakamas, Bloemfontein. We were very adventures, went kayaking, zip lining, horse riding, wine tasting, off road quad biking and so much more.
I am a less is more kind of girl, vintage chic was the theme, rose gold, burgundy and a touch of blush pink. My hair was side swept, lose with a bit of curls. I chose a romantic soft smokey eye with a nude pink lipstick. Jewelry from Lovisa. Wedding dress from Michelangela bridal boutique.
I went onto the 28 day diet, I also joined boot camp which was soooo much fun. I lost 7 kilograms before the wedding and it felt so good to have accomplished that. Due to a healthy diet my skin was looking great and there was no need for any additional treatments except my daily face routine. I also took additional vitamins which helped me stay focused and energized.
The venue was so beautiful there were no need for to much decor, and like a previously mentioned "less is more" , however I love lighting so we had plenty of candles as well as fairy lights.
Suits were hired from Euro suit. WOW, they looked stunning !!! Groom wore a black tuxedo which was chic and sophisticated, VERY HANDSOME. Groomsmen wore a grey and black suits.
Dresses bought at Michelangela Bridal Boutique. Burgundy with gold accessories.
Ds Janlu Kuyler. Such an amazing person, would absolutely recommend him. So genuine and down to earth. Very friendly and warm welcoming personality.
Rina Gertzen from B You Photography. She is a lovely person, gives good direction and she is not scared to get down and dirty. At times she was lying on the ground to get the best shots. Now that is dedication and passion.
Besides all my friends and family who made the day special and whom as helped with a lot of the arrangements. My Co-ordinater of the day was Berthe whom owns Victorian Manor Wedding Venue. She is extremely well organised and does everything by order of the day.
All wedding stationery was done by Louise Cronje. It all looked beautiful, really added to the ambiance and decor.
Our Dj was Hennie van Wyk at Perfect Sounds Mobile Disco. Will definitely recommend him in future, he is organised, has a large genre of music. We danced the night away. It was lovely.
