Magical Moments


It was always my dream as a little girl to have a fairytale wedding and to feel like a princess and I was fortunate to have exactly that. It was a perfect sunny winters day in Stellenbosch. Everything was perfect, it was a small intimate wedding which made it even more special for both of us. We wrote our own vows and that was a very special moment between us.

The Honeymoon


We went to Paternoster for a few days, but we are hoping to go on an overseas trip in 2020.

My Special Day

My wedding dress (Tracey's Bridal gowns) was an A-line dress with a lace corset and Italian tulle skirt, it was simple but elegant and I loved it. My hair was swept to one side with a few curls and my makeup was also very natural (Mathilde Pieterse Hair and Makeup). I wore a pair of BluBetty Shoes, I am all about comfort.

The Venue

Vredenheim Wine farm in a small chapel at Barrique restaurant on the farm.

Wedding Elements

Because it was a small intimate wedding we only had dinner for 25 people at Barrique restaurant at Vredenheim. I did some of the flower arrangements myself and my bouquet, as well as table flowers, were done by Fine Flowers by Lily.
