Magical Moments

 

The whole week was so extremely hot and we had lovely weather. On the day of our wedding it was raining and so windy and cold but still such a blessing!!!! Nothing went wrong everything was absolutely perfect!!!! The morning of our wedding the weather was miserable and as soon as we came out of the chapel the sun came out it was sooooo amazing!! Everything of that special day was truly a memorable and super special moment.....

Wedding Gallery

 

My Special Day

I wanted a very natural look for my wedding day. My hair was taken up on the one side and I had a pearly hair pin on the one side with curles hanging down on the side. My make up was natural and my dress was from Diaan Daniels contour. My shoes I bought at Sedgars which was pringle branded and my jewelry I bought at Bride and Co in Uhmlanga Durban. For my wedding I wanted a more classy elegant look and I wanted to feel Royal which turned out exactly like I imagined.
