Magical Moments


Our Wedding day was beautiful and packed with the most beautiful and dearest memories that will stay with us far longer than our forever after! We were blessed to spend our special day with our friends and family who all contributed in allowing our dream to come true.

The Honeymoon


Yes of course! We decided we wanted to do something a bit different so we went to Nosy Be an Island on the northern coast of Madagascar.

The Venue

We got married at the beautiful "The Barn At Redstone", our guest stayed at the venue with the option of staying either in their beautiful tents or in the cozy farm/country house.

My Bridal Beauty Regime

Well where to start ....

Exercised a minimum of 3 times a week, focused on eating healthy meals while following a fasting diet.

Went for teeth whitening at Dental Touch (Dr Rodney Barclay)

Focused on getting enough sleep and the spoils of an occasional massage to relax.

Wedding Elements

For our special days colours we decided on a natural rustic look and adding burgundy in the mix to give it that extra touch. We had fairy lights added on the ceiling, with a low light effect and mood lights against the walls.

Flowers and Decor was done by Melissa @Lavie Est Belle. We can highly recommend her as she did one incredible job at our wedding!

My Groom And His Groomsmen

My Dearest Husband was dressed in a 3 piece tailored navy suit and burgundy tie - and oh my He indeed pulled that look off better than I have ever seen!

The Groomsmen were also dressed in Navy & Burgundy.

Suits Tailored by 'O.S Man Tailor Made'

Beautiful Bridesmaids

We got the look of the Bridesmaids dressed where most of our wedding ideas started "Pinterest"

The Bridesmaids were dressed in beautiful long Burgundy dresses made by Gelique Boutique.

My Captured Moments

'A Bear Photography' and 'Yoané Video Productions' made sure that all our greatest memories were captured on the day and made us feel comfortable while having loads of fun. Most definitely one of the best decisions of the wedding was making use of their services.

Wedding Transport

I arrived at the venue in a beautiful X5 M50d provided by my amazing father in law

Food & Cake

The Wedding Venue 'The Barn At Redstone' prepared delicious plated food with various options that we could choose from.

Our yummy wedding cake was baked by Lay Licious. Nothing better than a 3 layered cake with our 3 favorite options.

Wedding Stationery

The talented Melissa from La Vie Est Belle assisted us with the flowers, design, printing and stationary

The Reception and Entertainment

We used the services of a V&E Entertainment who assisted with the music of the night, mood lights and dry ice smoke for the first dance.
