Magical Moments


Our wedding day was the most perfect and memorable day of my life, from the moment I woke up to clear blue skies I knew that it was going to the most beautiful day ever. There was so much love in the air, we had the most romantic traditional Catholic ceremony a lovely afternoon cocktail reception and then an intimate reception dinner with those closest to us. The highlights of my day was having my wonderful 91 year old father walk me down the aisle and then ofcourse the fact that I got to marry the man of my dreams, my one true love, my soulmate and my best friend.

The Honeymoon


We spent our wedding night at the New Kings Hotel in Sea Point and the next day we left to spend 7 lovely days in the beautiful town of Tulbagh, we then ended off our honeymoon spending a night at the Mount Bijoux guest house in Blouberg.
