The highlight of our wedding was our ceremony. It was something special, romantic and different. It was special because Ruan and I became one but it was also a time where we could glorify God for our marriage! We loved sharing our special day with friends and family, we had so much fun and we experienced so much joy!
Yes we did go on honeymoon. We went to Mauritius for the first week, and for the second week we went to Knysna and stayed in a little house in the middle of the forest!
I wanted to look elegant, romantic and timeless.

I wanted a lot of flowers, light and candles. I used To-Nett's flowers- decor hiring Group Paarl, to help me with my decor and flowers.
The flowers I used was mainly different types of roses, orchids and tulips.
Most of the furniture was provided by Ashanti Estate.
The bridesmaids dresses was my own personal design.
Hannah Lester made the dresses for me and I bought the material in Somerset West.
I wanted the girls to wear something pretty but comfortable. I envisioned the bridesmaids wearing a floral skirt with a pretty pink top to accommodate all three bridesmaids and their figures.

My husband and I are very comfortable to dance with each other so we did not plan a dance but just created our own special dance on the spot at our wedding.
