My Special Day

I love simple and natural.
My hair was curled and braided to one side with a blushing bride and some baby's breath to add a little extra. A friend did a brilliant job with my hair.
Make-up was very light and simple as too much make-up easily makes me look overdone. My sister-in-law did an incredible job with my make-up.
I chose my wedding dress from Calegra in Pretoria. It was then made for me by the original South African designer. It was also personalised with a few adaptations here and there.
Shoes were nude leather square heel sandals from Rare Earth.
As for jewellery - I wore silver custom earrings gifted to my by my aunt.

The Venue

We got married in the Midlands at Cranford Country Lodge. Family and some other guests chose to stay at the venue and enjoy Saturday and Sunday breakfasts together. Others stayed at nearby venues in the Midlands.

My Bridal Beauty Regime

I tried staying fit with gym sessions about 4 times a week. Being, a dietitian, I was very disciplined with my diet but still enjoyed a good treat or meal out with my, now, husband.
I am not overly concerned about too much pampering. My sister (my maid of honour) and I had some waxing and nails done at Sorbet 3 days before our wedding day.

Wedding Elements

At Cranford Country Lodge, little decor and lighting is needed as the venue is so stunning! We kept it quite minimalistic. Flowers consisted of eucalyptus and penny gum leaves, fine pink fynbos, rock roses, baby's breath and a few proteas here and there.
My now husband and I both love wood so this was incorporated in various ways as well.
