Magical Moments

 

Memorable moments were, having apart of my dad with me on the day even when he is not physically here with us today. My godfather - walking me down the isle, being there for me as a father during everything.
My mother - being there for me while getting ready, keeping me calm, crying with me and helped me get ready.
My baby sister - she was extremely emotional on this day, she was supporting and loving.
And then when the doors opened at the chapel and I saw my husbands face.
The tears in his eyes and his smile. Wow!
All I could think of at that moment was him and how excited I am for this journey.

The Honeymoon

 

We went to Hartenbos, Mosselbay for our honeymoon.
It was absolutely perfect! Local is lekker definitely.

My Special Day

I had a sleek big bun for my special day with a princess tiara type hair piece made by Boo Kitty Bespoke.
Thanks to my friend Caitlin from Beauty by Caity for my make up and hair. I had such a elegant but still popping make up and hair look.
My earrings and bracelet I got from Lovisa. A beautiful rhinestone bracelet with a very plain hanging earring.
My absolute beautiful lace & pearl bohemian style dress was from Lacy Lace in Boksburg. They have absolutely awesome and beautiful dresses!
My shoes - Heels: Nude block heels from Mr Price and Jessies vellies from Jessies Nature Inspired.
My pretty rhinestone & pearl garter is from Boo Kitty Bespoke.

The Venue

We got Married at Rustic Rock wedding venue in Pretoria North.
Fitted our style perfectly! Absolutely stunning venue with old rusted cars, and bicycles and loads more.
Our guests stayed over at 2 places Dancing Ducks B&B and Little Bushveld.

My Bridal Beauty Regime

This was such a huge process for me, I have been battling with gaining weight for years and through the whole planning I lost a lot of weight.
When I chose my wedding dress the goal was to gain weight so that I could physically fit into my dress as it was already a size 8.
I had no diet that I followed I literally ate what I saw but I kept track of everything.
Keeping my skin clear from breakouts I stopped eating chocolates, I used coconut oil and bio-oil every 3rd day on my face.I did not use any harsh face washes as they tend to make your face break out.
