Magical Moments

 

For months in advance my fiance joked about signing to me on our wedding day. I did not want him to sing and said I am not that type of person to want to have a song sang to me on my wedding day. On our wedding, he took the microphone and pretended that he was going to sing. Instead he dedicated the most beautiful and meaningful song and lead me to the dance floor for a dance. Needless to say I was in tears. This was definitely the highlight of my day!

The Honeymoon

 

We received a gift from one of our guests to go to Bushwa Private Game Lodge for a weekend

The Venue

Rivierplaas, Meyerton, JHB

I slept over the night before the wedding with my mother, bridesmaids, our daughter and my new sister-in-law.

Accommodation was available so on the night of the wedding we also slept over

My Bridal Beauty Regime

I started to sunbed at Cherry Blossom about 2 months in advance. My MUA recommended that I do a deep cleanse facial. Waxing and tinting in the week before the wedding. Lots of water

Wedding Elements

My venue provided some of the decor. I wanted to use a different underplate, linen napkin and chair cushions which was hired from Decor Mechanics.

The venue provided draping and fairy lights.

Flowers by Jason's Flowers

My DJ provided additional lighting and a smoke machine.

My Groom And His Groomsmen

The groom and groomsmen all had their suites made and tailored by Be Boss (Oriental Plaza)
All of them wore a silver grey suite with a white long sleeve (purchased at Woolworths) shirt and brown shoes (of their choice)
The groom wore a navy blue tie with a navy blue pocket hanky while the groomsmen had a navy blue bowtie

Beautiful Bridesmaids

I insisted on a dress that could be worn again after the wedding.
The bridesmaids dresses were ordered online from Lady Secreto
They could each wear their own shoes in a nude colour.

The dresses had a bohemian look - navy blue on the top and a floral print with pink at the bottom
