Magical Moments

 

Spending the evening before my wedding with my mom and sister at the venue was one of the best nights of my life. We laughed and talked for hours.

I will cherish these special memories forever, it was such a beautiful and special day.
My wedding day was even better that I could have planned. Everything was so perfect and felt like a real princess.

The highlight of my day was putting on my wedding dress and walking down the isle to marry the man of my dreams.

I will treasure my wedding day and all the special memories forever.

The Honeymoon

 

We went to Bali for 2 weeks and decided to stay at three different resorts , it was so amazing!

We stayed at Ayana Resort in Jimbaran the first 4 days, then at the Sheraton in Kuta and then ended our honeymoon at Goya boutique resort in Ubud.

My veil was very special and had tiny crystals on the ends that matches my wedding dress bodice perfectly, I bought that from Bridal Allure

I did my own make up on the day of the wedding and my hair was done my Monique Loren from Plush Feather

Wedding shoes I bought at Call It Spring.

My underwear I bought at Woolworths and my jewellery I bought from Lily Blue.

My Fragrance was J'Adore by Dior

No I did not make use of a wedding planner, I did everything on my own

Wedding Transport

I stayed over at the venue so I did not need a wedding car.

Food & Cake

Au d Hex restaurant was responsible for preparing and serving all the food and drinks at our wedding.

Our three tier chocolate ganache cake was made by Cake Couture by Justine.

Wedding Stationery

Lezanne's Designs did the name cards, table numbers and menu's

The Reception and Entertainment

We did not need any dance lessons and just wanted to do a slow dance to a thousand years.

The reception was really so much fun, the dance floor was packed and I danced till I had blisters on my feet. The dj told me that he has never seen a bride dance so much.

We decided on a dj as the dance floor was very small and intimate and suited the theme and the wedding perfectly.

Our dj was Jean Cillie
