Having planned my wedding day within 9 months from the time we got engaged, it was pretty stress free.
The day started off with the most beautiful winter sunshine, however getting closer to the time for the ceremony to start, the rain started pouring down, and stopped just in time for me to walk down the magical forest aisle.
If I could take the memory of everyone looking at me and smiling as I came down the aisle I'd print it and put it in a frame.
Our day couldn't have turned out any better, our guests having the most fun and joining 2 families into 1 was the most important of all.
We hadn't planned on going away on honeymoon since we have plans to do a Europe trip next year, however one of my aunts surprised booked us a week away to Stonehill River Lodge in Swellendam. Waking up and overlooking the river was the best way to start our new journey.
Since I am in no way a traditionalist, and somewhat of a minimalist. Our wedding day took place on a farm in a barn, kind of rustic without actually giving it that theme. Bare tables with eucalyptus vines and candles running through the centre of the long tables. I opted to have my dress made because I wanted to make it my own and be very different by having a 2 piece in a blush pink colour, cerise strappy heels and a pop of emerald green for earrings (to match my bridesmaids dresses).
My husband chose a [almost royal] blue suit and the groomsmen wore grey suits.
We got married at the BEAUTIFUL De Uijlenes wedding venue in Gansbaai. We stayed at the venue from the Friday until the Sunday, with all our close family and friends also getting to enjoy the weekend with us, which also made for no awkwardness at the reception that was held on the Saturday
Groom wore a royal blue suit (bought at Uzzi) and groomsmen wore grey suits (hired at Eurosuit)
My bridesmaids wore stunning floral emerald green dresses (bought at Mango) and grey shoes - to compliment the suits (bought at Madison)
