Magical Moments


Every bride and groom will say that their W E D D I N G was the B E S T day of their lives. Well, our wedding was our biggest highlight and memorable moment in our lives.

My husband's biggest moment was when he saw me walking in at the church. This was also my biggest moment to see my future husband with tears of joy in his big brown eyes, knowing we will in a few minutes be one before God.

One of our memorable moments, for us and our loved ones, was the father and daughter dance and the flash mob performed together with their dance.

Our day was P E R F E C T! The only thing we would have changed was to have more time with our loved ones and took more pictures with them. We were B L E S S E D with our Heavenly Father who loved us so much to bless us with such a wonderful wedding.

My Bridal Beauty Regime

Sjoe, this was not in our budget.

Although, I did color my hair a week before the big day and did my nails and tone nails three days before the wedding.

My nails were done by Nadine van Wyngaart - 072 970 7636

Marriage Officer

Our marriage officer was Pastor Gertjie Symans (We all know him as Oom Gertjie) sweetest and kindest person on earth. He prayed for our marriage and for us as individuals in the marriage.

We were extremely BLESSED with a Pastor who loved Jesus and implements the same in our marriage message.

I would recommend him as a Pastor for any marriage couple 083 267 8114.

Thank you Oom Gertjie!

The Wedding Planner
