Magical Moments


One of my favourite memories was walking down the Isle, I remember thinking I wished my dad could've shared this moment with me (As he died about 8 months before my special day) but the look in the eyes of my husband. I was rest-assured that I was about to spend the rest of my life with someone who loves.

Also, our dance video that went viral. We even had an online article printed out. Absolutely amazing.

The Honeymoon


Yes, we went to Insingizi game lodge and spa. Absolutely beautiful the picturesque view and the sight of animals walking by whilst enjoying their amazing pool.

Wedding Gallery


My Special Day

My dress was long lace long sleeve, low back with a gorgeous trail. My hair which, I did myself to cut cost it was curled with a bun and gorgeous silver alice band. My make-up was absolutely gorgeous very subtle, with gorgeous lashes( I would say natural but dramatic look) which was done by my cousin.

My lingerie was made my one of my bridesmaids grandma which was absolutely gorgeous. Let's just say " My husband loves it!!:)".

My shoes were nude with a bit of sparkling details bought at shoe lala.

I had no jewellery besides my wedding ring bought at NWJ. My dress was too beautiful to add anything else to it.

The Venue

I got married at Sweethome wedding and function hire. An absolutely gorgeous place. I would recommend it to any bride looking to get married in the Eston/Midlands area.

Yes, Sweethome has tons of accommodation just literally 1/2 minutes away from the venue.

They are also very helpful. They allow outside catering. They also provide you with a list of all accommodation within the radius of the venue.
