Magical Moments

 

My highlights and most memorable moments, wow there were so many. The whole day was a highlight, but if I have to exclude moments then it will be when my mom and my sisters helped me to put on my dress. When I walked down the aisle with my dad seeing my husband in front of me. When we said our vows and our first kiss. Our entrance at the reception as Mr & Mrs Mostert and then our first dance was also very special.

The Honeymoon

 

Yes we did. And it was amazing! We went to Bali for 10 days. It was a surprise, my husband planned everything on his own. We had an incredible time.

My Special Day

When I got engaged, I had a few ideas in my head of how my dress should look like etc. But after all I realized that I look to many looks. So I decided to go with words. Elegant, stylish, clean, lace, fitted, interesting.
I went for a few dress fittings, liked a few, but nothing stood out for me. With that I decided to get my dressed made.

Nothing gives me more satisfaction then making a bride or girl more beautiful then she already is.

The Venue

We got married close to a small town, called Buffeljagsrivier. The venue's name is Chris-Elle. A while ago I went to a wedding there and I absolutely loved everything about it. It made me feel at home, because I grew up on a farm close to Riviersonderend, also a very small town, not to far from Buffeljagsrivier. When I showed my husband the venue, he were also instantly in love with this venue.

My Bridal Beauty Regime

So regarding health and fitness, I just kept on going the way I normally do. Health and fitness are very important to me. I kept on going with my Zumba classes, did some weight training. One thing I got more into was park runs. I start doing that. I tried to diet, but that didn't work out so well. Food makes me happy:)
Skin: I am a Forever Business Owner of Forever living. It is Aloe products. So I just kept on using my products. I did go for a few facials and massages.
Teeth: I went for a little check up at our local Dentist in Piketberg (Dr. Herold Truter) we also did a whitening treatment called Opalescence Tooth Whitening Systems

Wedding Elements

Our theme were elegant clean white on white with a touch of sage green and wine red/burgundy. Flowers all white with touch of red and sage green leaves. We also had a little black and gold in our decor. We had a few Bibles verses that was DIY by my mom and her sister that was decor on pallets outside. Our wedding planner, did also our flowers and decor and her company also did our food.

Beautiful Bridesmaids

I also wanted them to look elegant classy and very stylish. So I decided to go for a two piece. Off-shoulder black body suit and a high waist wine red skirt. The skirts were made by Tanja from Tiara on Kloof. Shoes also black. Their hair were all in a low pony. Heir make-up and hair were done by Romay (Mont Romay)
