Me and my bridemaid had some fun while getting ready, my most precious memory of the entire day was when my Dad and I walked down the isle of our outside seremoni and the first thing I saw was my future husband (now husband) in tears, and then telling me how beautiful I looked and me apologizing for being late (oops)!
Highlights of the evening included;
Our firs dance as man and wife,
My father and dauther dance were so much fun I could not stop laughing and giggling like a schoolgirl,
Oh and lets not forget the cake cutting, we secretly made a pack not to rub cake in each others faces but the moment I saw the devilish grin on my husbands face, i knew what his plan was, and let me tell you I got him good
We are going on honeymoon,but only in March, we want to experience everyting and not be limited in the activities due to Covid-19.
We have already booked a spot in drakensberg, Kwazulu natal.
My overall wedding look were very classic an country style. My wedding dress was white with a sweetheart neckline and classic mermaid style at the bottom, and had small pearls hand stitched on the entire dress, i had a plain veil, my hair was done in a updo with a braid on the side and hand made white ribbon roses in my hair. My makeup was natural with a rosegold and smokey eye that made my green eyes pop and I had a dark shade lipstick on. My shoes was nude cowboy boots as we had a country wedding. I had white lace under garments. I kept my jewelry plain. My necklace was a single pearl with matching earings (something old and borrowed from my mother). I had a pearl armband that my mother made herself.

We got married on a beautiful farm venue called Hunters Dream, they are based just outside of Middelburg Mpumalanga on the Stofberg road, the Hosts were very accommodating and so friendly, we were looking for a venue were we could cater ourself and dit not have a cut off time and we found it with them, some of our gets only went to bed at 4 am which we take as a very successful wedding, the had accommodation on the premises for our geusts. I am very happy with the service we received.
I did not do anything out of the ordinary, i just continued to do my daly experiences and routines.
The wooden tables were coverd with hessian table cloths and african runners and matching chair cover's, decorated with flowers and rosegold centerpieces and cutlery. The flowers were handmade by my mother, different types of flowers all made of ribbon.

Our church reverend Nicholas Steenekamp preformed the wedding seromoni and also registerd our marriage.
I had the most amazing photographers, Daleen and Santa Spies from danceway photographics, they did an excellent job at capturing every movent and they stayed until 1am, we got the most amazing memories of the entire night, and they are very affordable. I will recommend them to everyone. We did not have a photo booth.
No, I did all the planning myself, I am a bid of a control freak and never leave important thing to someone els, however i did entrust my mother in law in the coordination of the decor and food, my own Mother made the snacks.
We used the gamedrive vehicle of the venue for our transport.
