Magical Moments


Our most memorable moments were:

Firstly, To be able to spend this very special day with all our family and friends and to be officially joined as Husband and Wife.

The most memorable moments of my wedding day was:
Getting ready with my crazy bridesmaids, my dearest Mother and Mother In law as well as my beautiful nieces.One of the goose bump moments was when we both said YES and were officially Husband and Wife.

Our entrance into the hall with our Groomsmen and Bridesmaids was a memory I will forever treasure as we danced our way in.Our First Dance was incredibly special , it was the very first dance that we had where all the spotlight was on us.
Our entire wedding day had very special moments that we will treasure for the rest of our lives.

The Honeymoon


We went on a pre-honeymoon to the Drakensberg in Kwa -Zulu Natal.
We went Zip lining, target shooting & swimming amongst other special activities.

We will be going on our official Honeymoon to Phuket, Thailand in May of 2019.
It was a rather memorable pre-honeymoon, I look forward to our official Honeymoon.
