The Honeymoon


My husband and I headed off to Thailand which was my husbands first ever overseas trip.We stayed in the most beautiful resort that had amazing pools with a bar in the middle so a few cocktails were consumed and a board game.We shopped ,ate(alot),saw some shows,animals,meet new people (that we stay in contact with)I got a thai tattoo for our honeymoon and love for Thailand.Besides the fact that my husband landed up in hospital from food poisoning and all we ate for the last two days was Macdonalds it was a dream come true for a young married couple.

Beautiful Bridesmaids

I really was so please with cheryl from back scratches in westville work on my dream bridesmaids dresses.They were a beautiful royal blue flared dresses with the most amazing lace tops and sheer back with beautiful buttons.I tried ordering a dress online before I went to cheryl and the dress was a disaster and came looking completely different. Cheryl then saw my vision and brought it to life.I truly am inlove with my bridesmaid dresses.They had a beautiful updo finished off with a beautiful peacock clip and the most gorgeous make up done by Angela and her assistant from make up your mind.We brought their beautiful silver sandals from Charles and keith in pavillion and they can wear them after the wedding too.I didnt want the usual bouquets of flowers that they couldnt keep as a special memory so we brought gorgeous peacock fans.It really all came together.I had such a special group of bridesmaids ,who looked incredible.
