Magical Moments

 

My most amazing day started off with the blessings from above, right there I knew that this would be the best day of my life.

I will always remember the way Piet looked at me when the doors of the church opened up, the look of pure perfection.
Words can not describe the instant emotions I felt when the man of my dreams was standing there.

The highlight of the day was when the reverend announced us Mr. & Mrs. Dirkse van Schalkwyk, knowing that the wait for the right person was worth it. The day was flawless and could not have gone any better.

We had the most blessed day with all our loved ones being there, family and friends from abroad, especially the heartfelt privileged having my 90 year old Granny attending our wedding.

The Honeymoon

 

I was taken to Bali, the beautiful tropical island in Indonesia.

Without any hesitation the best experience and holiday destination, a surprise honeymoon I'll never forget.
We started our journey from Buleleng - Pejarakan all the way through to Badung - Kuta, exploring all the beauty that Bali has to offer.

My Special Day

My wedding look was inspired by the image of elegance, style and inner beauty. Cecilia Fourie Hair & Makeup made me sparklingly beautiful by applying natural makeup colors and using her amazing techniques, enhancing my features and styling my hair in a sophisticated way.

Lashes done by the talented Clarita Smit.

I fell in love with my wedding dress the moment I saw it, Smoorverlief Bridal made me feel like a princess in a breathtaking Cindy Bam dress. Lace, pearls and a unique detailed back was what i had in mind from the start and Smoorverlief exceeded all my expectations.

Shoes from, "Call it spring" in Canal Walk, earrings and hairpiece from Bride&Co.

My pearl back drop necklace from Smooches Bridal accessories in Sandton complimented my elegant look.

My Bridal Beauty Regime

I am a huge fan of a healthy lifestyle and believe that you are what you eat.
Pizza's and pasta's are still one of my favorite food choices that's why I still spoil myself by enjoying them once in a while.
When it comes to seafood I enjoy prawns, oysters and everything else out of the ocean.

Doing any form of exercises are great for the body but even better for the mind.

Eucerin beauty products are amazing and works for any type of skin.

Wedding Elements

Beautiful and rustic with a touch of elegance represented through the roof chandeliers and the ghost tiffany chairs.
The naked bulbs, greenery and flowers completed my wedding venue.

Glass under plates with rose gold dots and sage green napkins gave a soft touch to the look that was complimented by white candles.

Draping outside the patio area rounded off the whole entrance of the venue.

Decor provided by Marlenique Estate & To-netts.
Flowers done by the Best in the business, Annemarie Le Roux from "Blommeprag"
