Magical Moments

 

My fondest memory is walking down the isle... The moment I was dreaming about for so, so long. The whole build up... Standing in front of the chapel door, full of emotion, my dad next to me, waiting to walk down the isle to my husband. It definitely is a feeling that can never be explained or forgotten. What an extraordinary and everlasting memory. I watch the videos over and over, seeing all the emotions just warms up my heart. First dance, on the song composed by my husband and Lyla. That is another fond memory and something I will always treasure. I think something else on everyone's list would be the father-daughter dance. My dad almost missed my wedding due to being ill and in hospital, but I got to share the day with him. I would absolutely have been heartbroken is he had to miss my wedding, so I will forever be grateful that he made it.

My Special Day

My dress, shoes and mom of the bride's dress were all bought at Bride & co. It was definitely my dream dress. It was everything I ever wanted. My dress was white with silver detail and my shoes satin, burgundy in colour. My veil I made myself. It was a cathedral veil, 3m long and I hand-stitched lace all around the edges. My makeup was done by Tammy from Kryolan and I couldn't have been any happier. Hair was done by BlueGel in Pietermaritzburg. Jewellery was my mom's jewellery, pearls, from her wedding with my dad. I had a burgundy, lace garter that one of my friends made.

Fur over the back of the chairs, silver and gold candle holders with different candles. Orange and deep red roses with greenery and berries. White table cloths and grey table runners with glass under-plates. Grey napkins and berries on the plates. Greensleeves was the service provider who also did my BEAUTIFUL bouquet.

Food & Cake

The food was also provided by St.Ives, it was a lovely buffet dinner. The also provided drinks and food during canapé hour. Everyone was amazed by how good the food was. The cake was made by a retired lady that lives in Howick and bakes cakes for a hobby. She did a great job in creating what we envisioned.

The Reception and Entertainment

We had a DJ as well as live entertainment during canapé hour. Ryan Calder was the musician and Matthew from Southern Lights was the DJ. My Husband, together with Lyla Illing, wrote me a song for our first dance - Tyrone's wedding song. You can find it on Youtube and iTunes. The song is based on our love for each other and is so spot on.
