Magical Moments


The moment I will cherish forever is when I walked down the isle and I saw my husband at the end waiting for me with tears in his eyes. He was looking handsome as always, but it felt like the first time I ever laid eyes on him.

The Honeymoon


O yes! We went to cape town. I have never been to Cape town. He went out of his way to show me everything! It was a first for allot of things for us.

My Special Day

I wanted a 'farm' wedding with horses and koeksisters.... I wanted my makeup to look natural but still glamours.I had the best makeup artist. We became friends after my wedding. I could recommend her any day Corne Van zyl 0845960048 I had to do my hair up so that you could see the back of my dress . The dress was an A-line dress because I think it suits me better. I did not want very shiny jewelry because I wanted the farm vibe where everyone can just have a nice time without worrying about all the fancy stuff.

The Venue

We got married on a farm +- 6 Km outside Bronkhorstspruit. We did everything our selves. We decorated the horse stables ,we did the draping ,made the food etc. All the guests went home or to a Guesthouse. It was a friend of our's farm so there were no place to sleep.

My Bridal Beauty Regime

I went on a diet about 2 months before the wedding and I lost about 8kg's . I went for a facial about a week before the wedding so that my skin could feel soft and look great,.

Wedding Elements

The decor was a mix between farm and country. I wanted something else. I went to Coligny a town just outside Lichtenburg to a aunt of mine who use to do weddings on her farm. She then gave me allot of old things that I can use like wooden pallets and other rusty stuff. It looked beautiful .

My Groom And His Groomsmen

The groom wore a black chino with a white shirt, black bow tie,black suspenders and black shoes. The groomsmen wore a black chino ,white shirt ,black shoes and a black bow tie. We bought all their clothes and accessories from Truworths.

Beautiful Bridesmaids
