Magical Moments


There were so many magical moments and it's hard to put all of them into words. But of course the most magical moment was seeing my future husband standing at the end of the isle waiting for me.

The other extremely special moment was being able to share this day with my family that travelled from around the world.

Then there was the moment my Dad saw me for the first time and neither of us could help the tears or laughter.

The Honeymoon


We did go on honeymoon. We ended up going to Cape Town.

My Special Day

I would describe my wedding look as something classy but young at the same time. I was very much inspired with a Vogue bridal look. It was soft but strong at the same time.
My dress was blush pink with white embezzlement. It had a low v neck and was a half murmaid dress.
My hair was in a low slic bun that complimented the lines of my dress without taking the attention away from it.
My shoes were Chanel inspired as it was classy but not your ordinary bridal shoe.
I wore a Tiara and had no veil. And my accessories were only some pearl earrings that picked up the white in my dress.

I got my dress from Euro ride in Menlyn Main. My tiara from lovisa and the rest was borrowed.

My Ligerie was from bras and things in Sandon. It was navy blue floral netting that was my something blue for the evening

The Venue

We got married at Ivory Manor Boutique hotel.
The hotel did have rooms available for some of the guest who wanted to stay the night.

My Bridal Beauty Regime

I have a skin routine that consists of Justine products. I use an oil cleanser to wash my face the I use their oil toner and night creqm. And I did derma roller treatments every two WEEKS.
For my fitness I worked out a diet and training programme for the last 4 weeks before the wedding (my husband and I are coaches)

I did not want to do anything irregular in terms of spa treatments as my daily routines worked for me.

Wedding Elements

My decor and flowers were champagne and a variety of blush pinks and purples. The venue is so beautiful by its self that I didn't have to do much to the decor. For the ceremony we had a white tent put up in the French gared that was fine she'd off with a lot of flowers and fairy lights.

My Groom And His Groomsmen

The groom wore a classic black tux with satin finishes that we got from Euro suit in Brooklyn.
The groomsmen wore black suit pants and a white button up shirt with a thin black tie and tie clip. Their outfits were bought at H&M
