Magical Moments


My most memorable moment is when I walked down the aisle my husband turned around and when he saw me he immediately started crying, what also makes my day very memorable is that because it was an intimate wedding we literally only had the people who truly love and appreciate us celebrate with us.

The Honeymoon


We had a three night stay at Pebbles Beach Cottage in Port Elizabeth. It was just us and the sound of the waves and smell of the ocean

My Special Day

My wedding dress, a very beautiful mermaid dress was designed and made by the very lovely and kind ladies of Brides Ect, Debbie and Shireen I must say I had no nightmares with my dress they made it a blissful experience my jewelery was very simply and it represented my something old as it is my mother's earrings.

The Venue

We had our entire wedding at Plumbago Hills wedding and conference venue. My wedding planner was Femke and she was a God sent during the entire planning period.

My Bridal Beauty Regime

My beauty treatments were done at our local beauty salon #TheBeautyDen. I had a massage done and also got my nails done by Cherick Hugo who works there a great beauty salon run by great women who really connects with you and makes you feel so much at ease. I also had a morning and night face cleansing routine. I used the facial products of #IsabellaGarcia

My decor was done by the wedding planner of Plumbago Hills. The theme was very rustic and laid back the really turned my ideas into reality. My flowers were done by a recommendation from Femke (the wedding planner) by a lady that usually does there flower arrangements.
