Magical Moments


My wedding was planned in 30 days and turned out PERFECT. The most memorable part of my wedding was our first dance. It was a flash mob with my retinue. this goes against Christian wedding tradition but It was a reflection of my husband and I. It was packed with fun and energy and definitely took the crowd off their feet.

The Honeymoon


We did not have the opportunity to go on honeymoon just yet but hopefully in the near future we will be able to. Or honeymoon was moving into our new home which was really amazing. I feel truly blessed.

Wedding Gallery


My Special Day

I wanted a flawless dewy make up look with lots of highlight , stunning long eyelashes , gold glittery bold eye makeup (Make up done by Nadia Motala). My wedding dress was extremely gorgeous! It was a corset ballgown (yes , i felt like a princess). The entire corset had Silver rhinestone work(front and back). I broke that off with a pretty flower band on my hair with hairs extension and side curls with a puff at the back of my hair (Hair done by Nadia Motala). My hair was very old school with a side puff and flick.

The Venue

The Boathouse , Ballito (Durban)

Our guests booked accommodation within the Ballito area (Via Air bnb)

My Bridal Beauty Regime

Our wedding was planned in 30 days , Prior ro my wedding i lost 18 Kg's which made a huge difference in my life and to my health. I achieved this by entering a weight loss challenge at work which was my motivation , a balanced diet and a daily Zumba routine (fitness can be fun).

I did visit my dentist a few days prior to my wedding for a cleaning.

My nails were stunning. (French Ombre) and my toenails were a beautiful Coral(went well with a beach wedding)

Wedding Elements

The night before my wedding i cried because the decor was not what i had wanted however the day that i walked into my reception venue , I had a huge sense of relief as the venue managed to changed the setting on the morning of the wedding.

Rose gold under plates , Diamante Lamp stand center piece on a mirror stand with diamante coverings, white Tiffany chairs and white table clothes.

The Main table had a blush pink sequenced table cloth, a modern background with white and blush pink back drop and a handing chandelier. We has blush pink and white flowers on our tables . Stunning!!!

My Groom And His Groomsmen

My Now Husband wore a pair of shorts for the ceremony(His grandmother was not impressed) as it as a beach wedding).
All the groomsmen wore Black Suit , White Shirt and black bow ties.. Looked Great

Beautiful Bridesmaids

The were STUNNING! with blush pink dresses and matching pink and white flowers on their hair. Different types of dresses which made it look all the better

The Reception and Entertainment

We had a DJ who we had to hire the day before our wedding as our DJ had let us down at the last minute . Our music selection was great. DJ pulled it off with modern music and a bit of Bon Jovi and Bryan Adams and what is a party without the casper slide.

We had a flash mob which we practiced the night before !! Was really a blast.
