Our love story began in 2009, when we met at as volunteers at a NPO.
We both had a crush on each other but never dated. Eventually we drifted apart and lost contact with each other.
Years later in 2015, after a series of coincidental events I found my love again on facebook.
The first thing he said to me was "the one that got away" and now I am "The One and Only"
My wonderful husband to be took me back to a place that is very special to us, the place we had our first date - Zimbali Coastal Resort
He made it so special as he reenacted some of the most dearest moments in our relationship as he went down on one knee.
The most memorable moment was walking down the aisle to see the glow on my husbands face and love in his eyes.
Guests showered with rose petals as we walked down the aisle as Mr & Mrs.
We shared pre-drinks and canapes with our guests as we embarked on capturing the memories of the day.
During the canape session we played a game called message in the bottle. Guests the bottles were appreciated with spa vouchers and a Zimbali stay.
As we cut our cake bubbles created a heavenly atmosphere around us.
We finished off the night by starting our first dance where my husband surprised me with indoor pyro.
It certainly was a memorable evening with a lifetime of treasured memories.

Honeymoon? you mean the most passionate and romantic nights of our lives?! Yes, we spent those nights at Fairmont Zimbali Resort. We were serenaded with the sounds of the majestic wildlife while our taste buds were sent on a journey with the wide variety of delicacies.
Going back to reality sounded like a nightmare, only to realize that we were not going to separate homes but to our home as husband and wife to start our happily ever after...#honeymoonforlife
My wedding look was quite simple and classic.
My make up and hair was done by Beauty in a Box.
My wedding dress was designed and custom made by Just Prom.
My veil was from Bride & Co.
My shoes were Call it Spring purchased from Zando.
My jewellery & accessories were from Lovisa.

My husband & I went to a choreographer and had a lesson with her however the regiment felt too staged hence we decided to follow our own tune & do a routine that resonated on the level of our hearts. We danced to the rhythm of our souls to our first shared love song "Better Place" by Rachel Platten.
So fun fact about our first dance, my husband surprised me with a dry ice low fog machine which made me feel like i was dancing on a cloud. If you think that's were it ended, get ready to be blown away, at the end of our dance my husband hired a pyro-technician to install indoor fireworks which went off towards the end as he pulled me in and at the exact moment were our lips touched it went off.
Our sound, lighting, pyro & DJ was all provided by Rockstar Audio.
