Nothing prepared me for the look on my Fiance's face as I walked down the aisle. His face just beamed with love.
We went to Mauritius for a week, right after the wedding
My wedding dress was a combination of East meets West designed by Belles Of Hilton. I wore a white wedding dress with my trane coming off my shoulder to resemble a sari. My dress included gold beading and lace to further add to the Indian theme together with gold crystal studded Steve Madden pumps.
My hair and make up was done by Royal Touch Make up and i wanted to go as natural as I could.
We got married in the Garden Venue at the Winchester Function Venue in Reservoir Hills, Durban. Our reception was held at The Monarch Room in the Winchester Function Venue
All our decor was handled in house by our venue, The Winchester Function Venue. We has a simple gold, ivory, and white theme, with little touches of blush pink in the floors.
Our wedding ceremony took place under a wrought iron gazebo, cascaded in white and green flowers.
Our reception main table and decor had an abundance of flowers and gold tones. Our stage was a frame of white and blush pink flowers.
In keeping with our East meets West theme, my groom wore a custom made Black and Gold sherwani, made my B Gangaram Tailors. A sherwani is an indian wedding suit for men. His shoes were also traditional indian men's footwear custom made by the same tailor.
The best man wore a black sherwani purchased from an India fare hosted at the CTICC.
I had one bridesmaid, my sister who was the maid of honour. She wore a custom made gold long sleeve silk dress with black lade detailing on the bust, back and arms.
Our marriage officer was Vincent Pillay, a family friend.
Alla Photography and video captured our special day. They were fun, imaginative and their work was impeccable.
I live in Cape Town but was born and raised in KZN, so was my husband. That is why we decided to have our wedding in Durban. I planned every aspect of my wedding alone without the help of a wedding planner and did it all from a different province.

My father and I opened the dance with our father daughter dance, he then handed me over officially to my new husband and we dance away to Richard Marx, now and forever. We had been practicing our dance for weeks using Youtube tutorials.
