Magical Moments


The bigest highlight of my wedding day was The moment I walk into the chapel and show my then soon to be husbands face!
Then the most memorable moment of my wedding day was

Wedding Elements

I did not rent anything as my father and mother made all the decorations themselves
My mother did the flowers: we used eucalyptus leaves made a runner on all the tables with fairy lights and succulents we have grown ourselves
We used glas canisters with floral jelly balls and candles in between the leaves.
My father made steel bird cages for the chapel and my mother did the flower arrangements in it

We made wooden bords and printed vinyl words (at home) and sticked it on the bords. The bords was placed all over the venue

Al the rest of the decor table names as my tabels was not numbered, the table setting chart, eveything me my husband and mother made

We bought them the bowties and suspenders. The rest they’ve gotten themselves

Beautiful Bridesmaids

Al 4 wore different red dresses. Each could chose their own dress designs . I felt that each one had different body tipes and not all4 would have fitted in one specific dress.
My only requirements was it must be plain red and a long dress

The Reception and Entertainment

We took dance lessons when we were attending our matric dance and we did not do it again. we just danced as we always did together and with much love.
we had a live band - The morning after band - they did the music as well as the lighting.
we did not have a lot of speeches but the few we had was beautifully put together.
the rest of the night was just the most amazing party where all our guest and us just had so much fun and celebrated the love between myself and my husband.
it was really the best day of my live and it was blessed with the presence of Jesus.
