They don't lie when they say its the best day of your life.
The ceremony was my absolute highlight, to see my husband crying at the end of the aisle - the pure emotion and love surrounding that moment was so surreal.
My husbands vows - he surprised me with such funny vows, I couldn't stop giggling.
That moment at the reception when you scan the room to look at all your special friends and family is priceless, its such overwhelming feeling to know that all those people made such an effort to be there just for you.
My little nephew who was also the page boy made the cutest speech at the reception - hes only 6 years old,, I was so proud of him.
Our first dance - it started off with the song Iris from Goo Goo Dolls and it then cut into a Psy trance song from Vini Vici - this is the moment the dance floor became crazy.
Eating!! My word, the food was soooooo good!
We are so fortunate to be jetting off to beautiful Bali in May.
My hair and make up was done by the amazing Estelle Pretorius. I have very long thick hair, so opted for a half up half down look with a diamond head band. I wanted to accentuate my eyes - so I had false lashes with brown shimmery shades. My wedding dress is a Mori Lee design by Madeline Gardner-it was on sale for half price-WINNING!! My shoes were beautiful closed silk shoes but boy did they hurt towards the end of the day - I was in flip flops as soon as all the formalities were over. My jewellery and accessories i kept very simple. My garter had a blue ribbon to incorporate "something blue"
Nooitgedacht Wine Estate. My guests stayed in the surrounding wine estates of Stellenbosch.
I opted for a rustic chic look, I absolutely adore Proteas and Fynbos so I wanted to include that element into the decor as much as possible. My decor was done by My Green Love Affair, they completely exceeded my expectations.
I wanted a glam look for my bridesmaids. I bought rose gold dresses for them and had their hair styled in a 'hollywood glam' style.
Astrid Nel from Ever Ever Photography - she captured so much emotion in her pictures - I couldnt have asked for a better photographer.
Markus from Boland Weddings was our videographer.
I planned my whole wedding but hired on-the-day coordinator from Strawberry Events - Dayna and her team completely took the stress away from me on my wedding day.
Nooitgedacht provided the food - I could not fault their food!
Wedding cake was done by my Mother in Law - I had a giant white cupcake with lots of little cupcakes for the guests to take home. Inside the cupcakes was a scrumptious red velvet centre.
My Green Love Affair
We hired David from That DJ Guy - he created an incredible atmosphere and played to the crowd. The dance floor was never empty! I provided my guests with flip flops to use for their dancing feet.
Our aim is to capture your most precious day, by not only telling your unique story in pictures, but by doing so with an artistic flair
