The most memorable moments of our wedding day would be, that it rained that day symbolizing that our marriage will be blessed beyond measure. My uncle had the oportynity to go oversea for a whole week and could not make it to the wedding, but he had called my mom to tell her that it is also raining in France, what a coincidence! I believe our wedding "knot" will not be broken easily.
No not really, because we want to save money, to go oversea next year December, I am a school teacher so it would be better to go over a December holiday than a one week honeymoon. After all a wedding is expensive. Atleast we will be going to Sun City Saturday the 6th of October until the 9th of October, just to get that feeling of a getaway.
I would describe my wedding look as a classical and natural look, I am also petite so the dress fitted me perfectly. My jewelry consisted of earrings and a bracelet from Lovisa. I used "Ange ou démon le secret" perfume from Givenchy.
My friend did my hair for the wedding and I had a upstyle but still very classy.
My make up was done by Allure makeup by Lize, I had very dramatic eye look, because my eyes are the most beautiful feature of my face. I had longer lashes on and a contouring of make up look, to enhance the cheekbones.
I bought my dress at Bridal Room, the Hadassa wedding dress.
My shoes was bought at "Lady dye" in Kollenade shopping centre. I had a pair of white Zellie shoes for the Reception and beautiful glittering shoes with pearls on for the church.
I did not have something blue for the day, so I decided to wear a lingerie piece with little blue flowers on.
We got married at Gabbata Wedding Lodge in Leeuwfontein, Pretoria.
The venue is 4 star rated. The venue has a bushveld feeling with a lot of lavender and also so Wildebeest and Blesbokke, that run freely in the venue.
Most of the guests decided to sleep at the wedding because it is more important to stay alive after you had been drinking at a wedding, than to climb in your car, going on the road and making an accident.
I did not go for teeth whitening or a facial, because my face was in a very good condition and I was using a scrub and facewash from Garnier everyday when bathing or showering.
My friend did my nails and my toe nails for me, she also tinted my eyebrows for me.
My Fiance and I did go to the gym every day, at VIVA gym in Pretoria, just to stay healthy and have a good look on the wedding day.
We did not have fresh flowers on the tables, we had a lot of succulants on the tables that gave a very minimalistic look but still showing that rustic classy look that we wanted. The seating of the day at the reception was animal names, so my Fiance got little animals in Namibia, for example a elephant, Impala, Rhino etc. There were wooden hearts on the tables with the picture of the animal and the number, each guest could then write someting on the big wooden heart. We will be using the wooden hearts to make a beautiful coffee table for our home.
We have used Mega Music DJ's for all the music and lighting for the evening.
Gabbata the venue provided us with most of the decor on the tables. We had big wooden tables with Tiffany chairs. There were only a hessian overlay on the tables with lace on.
