The highlights of my wedding were:
1) When I saw my husband standing at the aisle waiting for me.
2) When we were pronounced husband and wife.
3) When he had to take off the garter (I secretly had a shocking pink panty wrapped around the garter the whole day until he took it off)
My aunt was booked in for a whole week at Hazyview Cabanas, but could not say there after the wedding, so they gifted us with the week. Due to our finance, we could not afford a honeymoon, so we were very grateful for the gift.
With our wedding, we went for the rustic, vintage and outdoor look. I really liked the colours dark brown, caramel brown and cream.

We got married at a small venue outside of Sabie that is owned by York Timbers. The venue's name is Maggsleigh Dam.
I did not do all the pampering, I went through a very rough time up to the wedding ( My father passed away in June, and had to relocate my mother to Sabie the week before the wedding). So my pampering was being on the road and busy getting everything in order. I had a nice warm bubble bath the morning of the wedding though lol.

The white chair covers we borrowed from a lady my mother-in-law knows.

No, everything was planned by me and inlaws.
The wedding car was an Orange Unimog - The owner is Danie Roux
We had a "skaap spitbraai", the salads were made by us and we had cupcakes for a wedding cake. I made the cupcakes and one of my husband's aunts did the decorating of the cupcake.
We bought a guest book at Bride and Co, and the pen was a Parker pen I got from my father before he died.
We did not have a huge reception, just a small gathering like a barbeque at someone's house, there was music playing but no one danced ( It was freezing cold that day)
