Magical Moments

 

Our first dance. Being able to share a beautiful moment of Mr and Mrs, infront of our family and friends. It was amazing to see how our photographers captured this beautifully, as well as the loving looks on our guests faces.

Walking down the aisle and seeing my soon to be husbands face as he saw me for the first time.

The Honeymoon

 

We went on a trip we have wanted to do since we started dating in 2009. We went to the Maldives and stayed at You and Me by Coccoon. Beautiful honeymoon destination.

My Special Day

I wore a soft and elegant A-line dress in Ivory with my hair pinned up and soft hair pins in the bun. My veil clipped into the bun and paired beautifully with my dress. My something borrowed was earings from a friends from work that she wore to her wedding two weeks before that. I wore burgundy wedding block heels which matched my bridesmaids dress colours (they wore nude coloured heels under their dresses).

Dress: Eunice by Rebecca Ingram from Ever After Bridal

If there is one thing that I truly love, it is making someone feel good about themselves and, in essence, also making them happy.

The Venue

Zarose. The most gorgeous venue out in the Stellenbosch winelands. The venue has a beautiful manor house which has mountain views. We got married up at the top of the venue, underneath a beautiful tree, overlooking fields of zebra and springbok. We were privelaged enough to enter the zebra enclosure and take photos with some very curious zebra.

The reception venue is lower down the venue. It has big doors which all open up and lead out onto a deck that overlooks a dam and has superb mountain views for excellent photos.

Dirk, the events coordinator made sure our every need was seen to and put together our wedding from the smallest of details to the most gorgeous floral arrangements. He single handedly put together the night of our dreams and made sure that it ran smoothly.

My Bridal Beauty Regime

We had family here leading up to the wedding and spent many hours catching some much needed sun in the Kruger National Park. Waxing for the day of the wedding as well as gelish nails and toes were done by Sorbet.

Wedding Elements

Dirk Van der Westhuizen who does the coordination for the venue sourced all of our decor, lighting, flowers etc and put together the most magical evening.
