My whole wedding was a highlight for me!! I enjoyed every single moment. I cherish our first dance together as well as the speeches. It's always nice to hear what other people think of you as a married couple.
Yes, we went to Thailand. It was our first overseas trip together which made it even more special.
I really wanted a clean, natural wedding look. My makeup was very natural and Clarita used brown & gold colors on my eyes. My hair was in a low, folded bun. Our wedding was in the winter so I was just super excited to have a long sleeve dress- it's been my dream for like forever.I had long sleeve lace sleeves, with a low V-neck back and a tulle (princess) skirt. I felt like a winter fairy tale princess.
I wore "something old" from my mother as jewelry. She gave me her pearl earrings to wear on the wedding day which made it very special.
I bought gold high heels from Woolworths as my wedding shoes- they were SO comfortable. My lingerie was from Bra's n Things in Cavendish Square.
Eensgezind Function Venue- just outside Durbanville.
My makeup artist was pretty awesome and gave me some tips. I got myself a vitamin B complex (biogen) supplement, together with a green powder supplement from 'The real thing'. I also changed my skincare and bought Lamelle products about 6 months before my wedding (made a huge difference). I went to Dvine Skin & Body in Durbanville for monthly Optiphi chemical peels.
I enjoy running and therefore didn't really change my fitness routine. I did buy a few sessions at Sweat1000 in Claremont to change my program a bit and have a greater variety.
Eensgezind Function Venue is just amazing. They were like my personal wedding planner. I wanted a clean natural look for the decor as well. Eensgezind did the flowers- there was alot of green pennygum branches on the tables. I also had cream- colored flowers.
I rented gold tiffany chairs from Wilgenhof Estate in Franchhoek.
The groom wore a tailored navy suit and white shirt from Fabiani's. He purchased his navy, dotted tie from Cafe Cotton. He wore happy socks from Country Road Woolworths and his shoes was purchased from Steve Madden.
The groomsmen wore navy pants, happy socks and dotted bowtie's from Woolworths. They wore their own white shirts and shoes.
The bridesmaids word long sleeve velvet navy dresses with a low V-shaped back. The dresses were made by Taryn from Taryn's Closet. We got our inspiration from Pinterest.

Lindie Meyer Photography took our breathtaking photos. She had Bronwyn Todd as a second shooter. Lindie is amazing! She captures all those small, special moments and makes you feel SO comfortable.
No, Eensgezind Function Venue did most of the work.
We drove in an old turquoise Pontiac car.
Eensgezind Function Venue- and it was amazing!
I printed and designed everything myself.
The reception was amazing. DJ Joe from DJ Dean SA was our DJ. He just played the best music throughout the whole evening.
