Magical Moments


The whole day has memorable moments and I would like to share everything with you but I think the best part of the day was to see his face for the first time seeing me in my dress. The look of true love!!

The Honeymoon


We are going on Honeymoon in October 2018. We will be leaving on 11/10 for a week. I am so excited on going on this road trip with the one I love so much!!

My Special Day

My hair was upstyle with curls and a beautiful rose gold pin above the bun. My dress was white with minimal bling, it also had pocket :-) !!!!! I had Tommie Tekkies as shoes and had sexy lingirie for the wedding night after shower. I inherrite a crystal necklace from my grandmother and added some silver heart shaped earings. I specially made some bangles for me and my bridesmaid, each with the wedding colors and their names.

I did not use anyone to do our make up or hair but one of my bridesmaids is a hairstylist and did our hair and 2 of the 3 bridesmaids (my best friends) also helped with the make up. We save a lot of money but it did look beautiful!!

The Venue

We got married at Thabong Wedding venue in Brakpan. They have the best chef, the food was LOVELY!!!

My Bridal Beauty Regime

When I first tried on my wedding dresszs if fits perfectly, but after a few weeks as all brides do gained a little weight.. I went for a few session of Laser Lipo in Boksburg to help me lose a few sentimeters and drank a LOT of water. I also went to my sister in law to use the tredmil.

I had to cancel out all my sweets and sugars as well as some starch.

Wedding Elements

I always said that I dont want any flowers on my wedding day due to the fact that they are super expensive and after a few days they die, they smell bad and ends up in the dustbin.. What a waste of money.. Instead I had a very good friend of mine that made me some flowers with wire. The wire flowers were made for the bouquets (mine and the 3 bridesmaids) and for the table center pieces we had some succulents and caktus plants.

In the end it looked so beautiful I could not have asked for a more perfect day!!

My Groom And His Groomsmen

I am against being uncomfortable at a wedding. I said to my fiance at that time that I dont want them to be so uncomfortable in a suit and getting hot flushes of the jackets so we went simple. Some jeans and normal button shirts from Edgars, the groomsmen had suspenders and the groom had a waistcoat.

Everyone was feeling comfortable and could move around and they all looked so Handsome

Beautiful Bridesmaids

The bridesmaids had long dresses on also with tommie tekkies as I personally cannot wear high heals and my bridesmaid are taller than me. So I decided that it will look beautifulll if all the girls including the little bride (2 year old princess) wore tommie tekkies. Again everyone was feeling comfortable and could move around and dance at the end of the night.

Marriage Officer

We got married by our Church pastor Nico Smit.

Food & Cake

The food was fantastic, it was made by the chef at the wedding Venue and the cake and cupcakes were made by a bakery in Brakpan called The Bake Shop,

Wedding Stationery

Our invites were puzzles. We had bought the plain puzzles at a supplier and printed our own invites at home with a heat press. Our thank you gifts were very special. I had this tought one day that it should be coffee mugs. We got the mugs from Brandability in Midrand, we could write on them with chalk. So every mug had a special message on just to say thank you.

The Reception and Entertainment

My husband does not know how to dance so at first he wanted to go for extra lessons but it was so expensive. I told him we will just glide. So at the end with his two left feet we glided the dancefloor.

It worked out perfectly
