The Honeymoon


Yes, we had a temporary short honeymoon and a few months later the one we really wanted.

First honeymoon

The day after the wedding, we stayed at Winchester Mansions In Sea Point. This was significant because it was in Sea Point where he first said “I love you”

The day after we drove to Greyton, a beautiful quaint town. We stayed at a guest house called Lady Grace. We were so in love with this town.

The following day we drove to my husbands family beach house in Jogensfontein where we spent one day with his mom, dad and sisters. Then off to Knysna where we stayed at Thesen Island for a few days. We the did a day trip to Storms River which was one of the things on my bucket- list.

For our second honeymoon, we went to Turkey for two and a half weeks. It was an amazing experience.

My Special Day

My wedding look was elegant. I did not want anything over the top and my MUA (Monette’s Bridal Studio) gave me the perfect elegant look. My makeup and hair was absolutely beautiful. It also matched my theme and wedding dress.

My wedding dress was made by Carisha from Bride-Zilla Cape Town

Both my MUA and dressmaker exceeded my expectations. I was really blown away
