Magical Moments


My day started off , with me been very nervous, but excited. All i could think of ,was this is my day and i need to just smile.
Memorable moments of the day for me was when i first saw my husband, and the look he had on his face
when he saw me... the feeling i had was indescribable, and emotional.
when i arrived at my venue (Durban botanical gardens) and i saw my set up, everything that we were discussing with our suppliers, to see all that come into play, it was one of many highlights.
