Celebrating covenant, love and commitment with my ultimate favorite person, witnessed and enjoyed by loved ones.
Yes, we enjoyed 3 places in our own beautiful SA. 2 days in Franchoek, then 2 days at Sondagskloof in the Overberg, and then 5 days in Sedgefield Garden Route.
It was absolutely magical.
My complete wedding look was vintage, my hair and makeup Hollywood, done by Lisa Hair & makeup. my dress perfectly made with beautiful and fine lace, to suit who i am, made by Didi Couture.
Earrings was different and very classic, crystal stones, set in silver clusters, a gift from a best friend and bridesmaid Karin, bought at Lovisa.
My shoes.... I have never seen such gorgeous shoes ever... Leather heals with cut out patterns, from ZARA.
We got married at the beautiful Simondium Country Lodge in Franchoek.
Most of our guests stayed at the venue, as lovely country style accommodation is available, made it very convenient. Amazing breakfast included the next morning. Guests were very impressed
Hmmmmmm, in general I choose to eat and live very healthy but..... 2 months before my wedding, I went into complete eating mode
My décor, flowers and furniture was more beautiful than I could ever imagine. I had a picture in mind, but the end result was NEXT LEVEL. Dramatic and different, more than any other i have ever seen. Something out of a magazine. Thanks to Suzanne from Dear idea florals and Styling and a very creative and innovative friend and bridesmaid Lize that did all the decor as well as our fabulous and beautiful gin bar.
Our candles, table cloths and table décor was hired at function hiring 4 you.
Wooden tifiny chairs from Wilgenhof
Groom wore a white linen shirt from Old khaki, a black Chino pant from Woolworths and brown leather boots, also from Old khaki.
There were 6 groomsman dressed in their own white shirts and navy chinos.
My wedding colors was navy, burgandy, mustard and emerald green.
As my 7 bridesmaids all have such unique, dramatic and colorful personalities, I gave them the option to choose whatever they would like to where, as long as stays in the color scheme above. The outcome of all 7 totally different outfits was out of this world!!!!!!!
Our amazing and loving Pastor - Ross van Niekerk.
So, me and my husband wanted something different. Not the usual wedding pics. We came across the model and fashion / wedding photographer - Chrisél Mouton. Words cannot discribe her work of art. Go look at it yourself. It was perfect. And what a sweet en a lovely girls she is.
No, no planner, but 7 Bridemaids
The Venue (Simondium Country lodge) itself made our food. It was amazing. We had filit steaks and lovely and interesting salads of our choice.
My mom baked the most amazing chocolate and nut brownies, that Lize my bridesmaid made up in a cake decorated with flowers and served it on a gold plate. Best and most trendy 'wedding cake' ever.
I did it myself, with the help of pinterest
It was more than i could dream off. We had the best DJ, DJ frank from Rainbow Sound.
We opened the dance floor with New York from Frank Senatra, practiced by ourselfs. I married a very good dancer.
